The Opwall teams are working with various different rewilding projects in the UK including the Knepp Estate in West Sussex. The Knepp project includes running student training courses in the skills needed to develop a career in wildlife conservation or climate change and quantifying carbon and biodiversity credits to provide the funding to plug the funding gap at the start of rewilding schemes.
This training course is based in a field camp as you would experience on expedition and is designed to give participants some of the practical field experience in wildlife survey techniques, analysis of data and how to write up scientific reports, that they would have experienced on a normal Opwall expedition. In addition it gives exposure to professional scientists, field biologists, film makers etc that have made careers in wildlife conservation or climate change, so the students can see the career opportunities available.
For those completing Duke of Edinburgh Gold then the field camp experience should also count towards your residential requirements.
