Operation Wallacea presentation

Operation Wallacea run biodiversity research programmes in some of the most diverse and threatened environments on the planet.

These research programmes are available for students to join over the summer and provide an opportunity to gain experience working with a range of different university academics as a research assistant, or to gather data for an independent research project. There are more than 200 academics who work on the programme and we have 26 research sites spread across 15 countries.

Expeditions run from June to August and you can join us for two, four, six or eight weeks.

Operation Wallacea are coming to the University of St Andrews on Tuesday 16 October at 5pm. The presentation is being held in the Booth Lecture Theatre, School of Medicine.

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!
