Operation Wallacea run biodiversity and conservation management research programmes each year over the summer holidays. The projects are designed with specific wildlife conservation aims in mind, and are situated in some of the most diverse and threatened environments on the planet. These research programmes are open for students to join to gain experience of working with a range of different university academics as research assistants or to gather data for an independent research project. There are more than 200 academics who work on the programme and we have 24 research sites spread across 11 countries.
Operation Wallacea are coming to Manchester on Thursday 16 October at 1pm. The presentation is being held in Lecture Theatre 5, Stopford Building.
Expeditions run from June – August and you can come for 2, 4, 6 or 8 weeks.
So, if you are interested in sustainable conservation, birds, bats, large and small mammals, invertebrates, botany, herpetofauna, discovering new species, rediscovering species thought to have become extinct, learning about survey techniques and working with some of the best academics that the UK, Ireland, US and Canada have to offer, then please come along.
