Opportunities to gain remote fieldwork experience in biodiversity and conservation research

Operation Wallacea has run biodiversity research expeditions for the last 25 years to a series of sites mainly in the tropics (www.opwall.com), helping university students from around the world gain valuable experience and get their hands dirty with real biodiversity research. From tropical rainforests and European grasslands to coral reefs and Mediterranean seagrass meadows, our network of more than 200 academics lead cutting edge research projects that help to inform local conservation management strategies.

More than 500 papers including some in high impact journals such as Nature and PNAS have been published from these annual programs, so by joining the field surveys you are guaranteed a high level of academic involvement. By working alongside these academics, students either gain broad experience as research assistants or to gather data for their independent research project (thesis). The expeditions vary in length from 2 to 6 weeks during the month of June to August.

One of our lead academics is presenting about the program over the month of November, where you can learn about how to join one of these expeditions and how the data collected are being used to help with wildlife conservation measures.

The series of webinars being hosted by our academic are listed below, so please click on the webinar time and date that you can attend.
