Having originally trained and worked in graphic design and illustration, Jon decided to bring his lifelong passion for nature to a career in conservation. 

He originally volunteered as a marketing assistant for a wetland charity. From there Jon started working in outdoor conservation education and has done so ever since; eventually managing education and events for a wildlife park.

Jon has continued to do related design work, illustration, video editing, photography and social media, as well as learning support and tutoring for an animal management college.

The threads which run through all of this work are a joy in communicating with people about nature and a fulfilment from helping others get the best from themselves.
