School Expeditions

Overseas school and sixth form trips

The Operation Wallacea programme allows students from all over the world to join as part of a group if aged 16 years and above. Usually accompanied by their teacher, often from a biology, geography, environmental science field, although many times from other disciplines also.

The design of the research expeditions is that any student who has a keen interest in conservation, research, environmental concerns and sustainability can take part. It is extremely beneficial for those of whom study biology/geography/environmental sciences and to those looking to take part in conservation volunteering abroad.

Our usual expeditions offer 2 week placements in a field environment working with scientists/academics and have slightly different structures in each country. Documents outlining the programme of skills training, academic lectures, practicals and field research are provided to the students in advance of the expeditions and are available on each countries page on the website. Training is also given in how to prepare for the expedition and how to fundraise.

We also have opportunities for in country trips and shorter (5 day/1 week) courses and expeditions. Individuals can occasionally join please contact us or submit and expression of interest for further details: info@opwall.com
