Join our growing community of change-makers

Our growing collection of mini-courses is a doorway into the conservation industry, presenting content directly from wildlife veterinariansecologistsand game reserves. We’ve packaged our course topics as individual modules to make them accessible and affordable, while also allowing learners to mix and match their own learning programmes.

You can purchase anything in The Expedition Project as a one-off purchase or add a membership and get discounts and added benefits!
