Online Conservation Courses and Virtual Programmes

Endangered & Priority Species Conservation & Habitat Management Course

This Wildlife ACT accredited course introduces participants to the most up-to-date, in-field conservation techniques and practices. Our Senior Monitor, Megan Hudson, introduces important aspects of Wildlife Monitoring, Camera Trapping, Tracking and Spoor, Conservation Management, Capture and Relocation, Wildlife Crime & Illegal Trade and Community Conservation.

With the lockdown and travel bans having resulted in us being unable to accept volunteers and students for most of 2020, we developed this online Conservation Training Course through Teachable Inc. This virtual version of our regular 4 week course in the field, still provides a stepping stone for nature lovers looking to possibly pursue a career in wildlife conservation. It includes a mix of live and pre-recorded classes and all course content and recorded sessions will be available to be completed at your own leisure.
