Conservation Research Opportunities for Schools
Operation Wallacea (Opwall) is a conservation research organisation that is funded by, and relies on, teams of student volunteers who join expeditions for the opportunity to work on real-world research programmes alongside academic researchers.
We have been running research expeditions since 1995. School groups led by teachers, assisting our researching scientists and academics. Data collected is used to implement best practice management plans, leading to successful conservation models and discovering new species to science. High school students learn how they can effectively contribute to real research, to ensuring their travel is worthwhile and how this generation can help to slow species extinction.
We also offer a number of opportunities to both teachers and their students outside of our summer expedition season. Our data has been made available for students to use in their school projects or for teachers to use in their lessons, we also offer work experience courses in a range of topics for school students to gain knowledge about careers in our field.
We will be hosting a number of webinars through January informing teachers on the different opportunities we have on offer to their students. The talk will include information on:
