Joel Little started his professional environmental career working in wildlife conservation across south eastern Australia. A move back closer to home saw him take up an offer for an Environmental Officer role in a regional NSW Council.  
 
Fast forward over fifteen years and Joel has utilised the exposure to the wide range of situations that local government offered to start his own consultancy business, helping residents, businesses and Councils in dealing with the complex issues surrounding environmental assessment, contaminated land, soil and water management and biodiversity. 
 
In this episode, Joel shares a message to those just starting out in the environmental industry, and reflects on his own career starting out in wildlife conservation, then working with local government, to now operating his own consultancy. 
 
You’ll hear what led Joel to go from “just giving it a year or two” in local government to working with council for nearly fifteen years. 
 
Together, Shonelle and Joel discuss the importance of effective communication skills in the environmental industry, and consider some issues and opportunities in regards to renewable energy, specifically solar and wind farms in Australia.
