When to take the course

This online course can be taken at your own pace and in your own environment.

How it works

Courses in the Project Introduction category are designed as an online introduction to some of the most inspiring projects in South Africa. Using these introductions you can then move onto linked courses in the Virtual VolunteeringConservation In Action, Ecology or Conservation Kids series where you can do academic modules and/or volunteering tasks from home.

In order to progress through the course you will need to click on COMPLETE LESSON at the end of each page.

And of course we have some fun summary quizzes for you at the end of each module!

What you need

You may encounter issues on Mac Safari browsers. Other browsers are preferred.

Making the most of it
