Originally the project offered 9-month & 4-month bursary placements to support people who wanted to work with nature. We aimed to get 80% of the 36 placements into work in the environmental conservation sector over a 3-year period. As the project draws to a close in 2017 we are offering a final set of two 4-month placements directly with Ambios Ltd.
The project covers both sea and land work-based training and offers vocational qualifications in species/habitat identification, field survey, heritage interpretation and information technology.
24 hours wildlife surveys promote heritage interpretation, engaging naturalists, professionals and volunteers in the process of wildlife identification and species recording using technology.
