United for Wildlife conservation collaboration builds on their young conservationist engagement programme with launch of free online course

  • United for Wildlife collaboration launch a free online conservation course named “Introducing conservation”
  • Module 1 has been in beta and initial roll out for several weeks, the public launch of the course coincides with the release of Module 2
  • Over 900 people have signed up to take the course since launch
  • Modules 3 and 4 will be released later in 2015
  • Goal of the course is to increase accessibility to conservation education globally as part of the #WhoseSideAreYouOn engagement campaign

The aim of the course is to give access to conservation education to people around the world, to encourage them to learn more and become more engaged in conservation, perhaps volunteering in their country or even being inspired to follow a career in conservation.

The course content was developed by the Zoological Society of London, supported by the other partners of the United for Wildlife collaboration including The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

The course platform was developed with the kind support of Floream, who are a leading provider of innovative online learning solutions.
