Wildlife Technology & Skills

The LEMUR+ project was part funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by Ambios Ltd in partnership with a range of environmental conservation organisations.   A short evaluation video can be found here.   A project outcomes summary can be found here.  A full evaluation report is available here.

The project is now closed, but it 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 and we achieved this by a good margin.  

The project covered both sea and land work-based training and offered vocational qualifications in species/habitat identification, field survey, heritage interpretation and information technology.

24 hours wildlife surveys promoted heritage interpretation, engaged naturalists, professionals and volunteers in the process of wildlife identification and species recording using technology.
