Operation Wallacea Informational Webinar 10/14
Find out how to get involved with Operation Wallacea!
Operation Wallacea has run biodiversity research expeditions for the last 25 years to a series of sites mainly in the tropics (www.opwall.com), helping university students from around the world gain valuable experience and get their hands dirty with real biodiversity research. From tropical rainforests and European grasslands to coral reefs and Mediterranean seagrass meadows, our network of more than 200 academics lead cutting edge research projects that help to inform local conservation management strategies.
More than 500 papers including some in high impact journals such as Nature and PNAS have been published from these annual programs, so by joining the field surveys you are guaranteed a high level of academic involvement. By working alongside these academics, students either gain broad experience as research assistants or to gather data for their independent research project (thesis). The expeditions vary in length from 2 to 6 weeks during the month of June to August.
