two-week FIELD TRIPS
During this trip, you will delve into the African bush and be presented with unique opportunities such as researching critically endangered primates, dwarf crocodiles, hippos or even discovering a new species of shark! This trip is suitable for individuals wanting to expand their skillset and contribute to the conservation of some of the world's rarest animals.
What to expect?
For over 20 years we have specialised in formulating ‘world-class’ inspirational field trips to The Gambia. We pride ourselves in giving students the opportunity to gain real-life, hands-on conservation experience with leading wildlife conservation professionals, where they are able to live and breathe the social, economic, physical and emotional challenges conservationists encounter.
They will develop a range of skills necessary for a career working in wildlife conservation, understand the threats climate change has on ecosystem function and how they will be the generation leading the way to restore habitats, mitigate human-wildlife conflict and recover species from the brink of extinction.
Our field trips to the Gambia are planned and prepared bespoke, to meet the requirements of you and your students. Please get in touch and we will happily work to create the most awe-inspiring expedition which is both inspirational, educational and with a huge conservation impact.
The first week of the experience will be a tour of the highlights of The Gambia, following the same itinerary for the one-week trip. The second week is comprised of three to six days of project fieldwork whereby participants will choose from several options of groundbreaking research to conduct and present at the end of the week. Any free time will be filled with optional excursions such as night walks or trips to Pirang-Bonto National Park, Paradise Beach and Katchikally Crocodile Pool.
