Webinar Recording:

Learning to surf the waves of stress as a wildlife volunteer

Guest Speaker: Jessica Dolce, Certified Compassion Fatigue Educator

Brought to you by Two Green Threads.

In our day to day lives we often have times when our jaws clench, our tummies churn, we get irritated easily or we have trouble sleeping. In other words, we feel ‘stressed’. When we consider that the role of the wildlife volunteer is often juggled in addition to paid work, home and family commitments, we can understand why so many wildlife volunteers talk about feeling ‘stressed’.

So, what can we do about it?

In this webinar, we explore how we can learn to surf the waves of stress so that we feel more calm and in control, allowing us to continue doing the things we care about and ensure our wildlife volunteer role is sustainable for the long-term.
