Discover what it takes to save the world's most incredible, and endangered, animals. Learn how scientists study animals in nature and use that information to protect wildlife and wild places.

(6 weeks online learning + 1 project week)

Why should we protect wild nature? What is threatening biodiversity? How do populations change over time? How do scientists go about protecting wildlife? Who is doing the work of conservation? These are just some of the questions that will be investigated through this online course from the Wildlife Conservation Society. In this course, participants will explore how to bring conservation into the classroom while learning from one of the most prestigious conservation organizations in the world.
