Biodiversity and Conservation, 3 days3 day

This course will introduce students to some of the most spectacular natural locations and rich diversity of wildlife in the British Isles. Each season brings a different emphasis for the course, whether it’s in the spring as the natural world bursts into life, or in the winter hunting for animal tracks in the mud and snow; this course will inspire your students to become more involved in natural history. Our natural ecosystems are always changing and the course explores our understanding of the key relationships in nature and how humans are an integrated part of this living system. Hands-on, active conservation and survey activities provide students with the knowledge and skills to take back to their schools and communities to improve the quality and sustainability of their local habitats.
