The Icon Emerging Professional Network (EPN) aims to bring together and offer support for students and emerging conservation professionals
Join our network: Please join the discussion on our Facebook page, or sign up to the network through Icon to keep up to date with our news and events. An emerging conservator is broadly considered as a conservation student or individual in the first five years of their career, however this is by no means absolute and there are no restrictions on joining the EPN.

Complete our Survey - we want to hear from you!
In June 2019 we presented at Icon's Conference: New Perspectives: Contemporary Conservation Thinking and Practice. Through our talk we highlighted some of the challenges emerging professionals face, as well as looking at what opportunities are open to those starting their career in conservation. Much of what we discussed came from feedback given through our online survey and those of you we have spoken to, alongside our own experiences. We are always looking for feedback so if you haven't already, please complete our survey or get in touch!
