I am a writer, journalist, editor and communications consultant. I help companies and individuals tell engaging stories about the beauty of and threats to the natural world. I am collaborative in my approach and have partnered with many photographers, charities, publishers and businesses to produce features, content, books, speeches and communications’ projects.
My long-standing interests include man’s relationship with nature, remote places and travel, wildlife conservation and indigenous cultures and I am committed to issues relating to the natural world and our place in it. See 'selected work' here: https://www.joannaeede.com/about-me/

In 2011, I was invited to join National Geographic Voices as a regular contributor.
