Don’t Just Listen To Us…
I’m headed to Cikananga Wildlife Rescue in Java for three-months. The Javan gibbon is a species that I’ve been interested in for a while so it’s really exciting that I will have an opportunity to work on the gibbon program. Thanks for all your help, I probably wouldn’t have done a placement without you helping me out, thanks so much.
Over the past few months ConservationWise has provided me the best opportunity I’ve had to develop my abilities as a conservationist so far, I can’t stress enough how helpful Jess has been in finding me and Charlie the perfect placement! Thanks to her, from November 2017 we’re off to Borneo where we will be staying at Tungog Rainforest Eco Camp to carry out our research projects.
I cannot stress how helpful ConservationWise have been, none of this would have been possible without their help and guidance. For example, Alex and Jess provided an excellent packing list, designed my research project and supported my trip preparations from the start – making our lives even easier! Thanks to them I am going on a truly life changing adventure which I cannot wait to begin.
Growing Up ConservationWise
As well as offering simple advice and encouraging you to live ConservationWise, we have bigger plans for this community! We dream about growing a Foundation to help individual aspiring conservationists and small-scale initiatives achieve their best chance of success. You can check out a snippet of our ideas by clicking the 'Find Out More' button below. In summary, we want to...
- Help provide financial support for students who would otherwise struggle to have a field placement experience
- Work with valued in-situ research projects to make sure that the highest level of communication and efficiency is always available
- Offer basic business and marketing contacts to conservation field programmes around the world to help them become financially independent
- To promote the importance of open-access work and make this possible for our associate researchers in the field
