Given the pandemic travel restrictions that have restricted international travel for the last 2 years, Opwall has put together a series of training courses in countries from where many of those who normally join Opwall expeditions originate (UK, Australia and New Zealand).
These training courses are based in field camps as you would experience on expedition, and are 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 they give exposure to professional scientists, field biologists, film makers etc that have mad 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.
You can book these directly online and travel independently (with parental consent if under 18) and the camps and field activities will be run in a Covid secure manner.
