Marketing your conservation cause? You’re likely to want to connect up with other global conservation drives, to work together to increase awareness for your particular project.


That means knowing when relevant environmental causes run their campaigns, and planning your own campaign around those dates.

For the LoveGreen team, we’ve highlighted those conservation dates that are our most important, and which offer a nice platform for a conservation communications campaign. Here’s hoping they help you too:
