Nature conservation – why bother?

Sep
03

I used to work as an accountant.  But I increasingly found the world of high finance and profit dispiriting.  So I took two years out to find out what I really wanted to do in my life.  I had already decided to go to Australia and become a backpacker.  But, ever wise, my girlfriend said “why don’t you do something that you’re really interested in while you’re out there – how about getting involved in some environmental projects?”
