Table of Contents
Conservationists are individuals who advocate for the protection and responsible use of natural resources for human consumption, as well as plant and animal species and the habitat they live in. In the United States, a distinction is drawn between conservation and environmentalism. And this is why gifts for an environmental activist may not resonate as strongly with a conservationist in the US. it is always best to give conservationist gifts to a conservationist.
You can have a Conservationist who decides to focus on one specific aspect of nature. Others may decide to focus on everything. If you’re interested in a comprehensive list of Conservationists, this list from Wikipedia is a good reference point.

And to find that gift, it is important to know what the cause(s) they support are. This is the main key to picking out a good gift for a conservationist. Once you have identified that cause, then buy a gift themed around that course.

Other Types of Gifts You Can Give a Conservationist.
Aside from giving tangible gifts, these gestures are also as valuable as gifts, if not more, to your Conservationist friend or loved one.
1. Charitable donations to the Organizations that advance the Conservation Cause they are passionate about.
Oftentimes these organizations are underfunded and could do with more charitable donations to help them in fighting for the conservation causes they stand for. This is especially the case for smaller organizations that are yet to gain national prominence or attention. Your charitable donation or contribution, however small you may think it is, would make a world of difference to them.
Ask your friend what their organizational needs might be and how you can support them in the form of a charitable donation. And once you are equipped with all the information you need, don’t hesitate to make that donation. Our article on Giving Charity Donations as a Gift is a useful additional resource guideline that is helpful.
2. Helping them in their quest to raise awareness about the issues they advocate for.
You can help them do this through any of the following ways:
- This could be through sharing their conservation awareness posts on your social media platforms;
- Joining them on any fundraising causes they have in place;
- Or joining on any other awareness projects they have going on. If for instance, they wear their t-shirts on a certain day as part of awareness creation efforts, consider joining them in wearing that t-shirt on those days.
3. Protecting the Conservation Causes they stand for.
Nothing says to a person that you value and respect them like standing for the same things they stand for. So for instance, if your friend is an ocean conservationist, don’t join others in littering watercourses by carelessly dumping plastic litter into water bodies.
