Can you be married or/and have kids as a conservationist?

Choosing to get married an/or having children is not something to do on a whim. I honestly believe that regardless of my career path, I would feel the same way about these big life choices. I say this because a lot of people assume you can’t be a global conservationist and have a family. I have many girlfriends and colleagues that are rocking at being an explorer AND and parent. When I was little, I rarely spoke of my wedding or of future children; I wanted to be an explorer! At 35, I am still not interested in being pregnant or adding to our current human population; However, I am very open to adoption in the future. The most important thing to me is, I have choices and I am responsible for my choices. For more thoughts on this topic, visit: Women in the Wild.
