With Eramsus+ funding, we will be developing practical wildlife identification and communication courses, which will be taught virtually. They will be aimed at current and recently graduated University students, with the aim of providing key skills which are important in the professional market. When distance learning is completed, participants may have the opportunity to join in in a funded mobility to further develop those skills.

Uniquely, some of the courses will involve the loan of survey equipment so that you can practice your skills while joining live learning sessions spread over 6-weeks.
