Operation Wallacea will be on campus again tomorrow
“We realise that some people were unable to make the initial presentation and wanted to let you know that Operation Wallacea are returning to the University of Southampton on Friday 23rd November. Dr Tim Coles, the founder of Operation Wallacea, will be holding a follow up project selection meeting in 85/2211 at 1pm. This meeting is open to everyone and will give you an opportunity to learn more about the projects and how you can get involved.
Operation Wallacea run biodiversity research programmes in some of the most diverse and threatened environments on the planet.
These research programmes are available for students to join over the summer. You are able to gain experience of working with a range of different university academics as a research assistant, or to gather data for an independent research project. There are more than 200 academics who work on the programme and we have 24 research sites spread across 14 countries.
Expeditions run from June – August and you can join us for 2, 4, 6 or 8 weeks.
So, if you are interested in sustainable conservation, birds, bats, large and small mammals, invertebrates, botany, herpetofauna, discovering new species, rediscovering species thought to have become extinct, learning about survey techniques and working with some of the best academics that the UK, Ireland, US and Canada have to offer, then please come along!

Thank you and hope to see you at the meeting,
