Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities, who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research expeditions.
It offers students a two week expedition to some of the most remote and stunning places in the world with hands on experience of a focus on environmental education and conservation. The 2-week expedition is open to all students, regardless of A Level choices or career aspirations.
Students are able to use the expedition to gain extra UCAS points by doing an EPQ, and the expedition covers key aspects of biology and geography syllabuses. In addition if they are applying for UK universities then they automatically qualify by completing the expedition for a University Award that can be included on their UCAS form.
Operation Wallacea cultivates collaboration with others as students whilst learning to get on with people from other countries and cultures.
Previous recent expeditions have been to South Africa, Peru, Fiji and Tanzania.
It is hoped that the next trip will be to Indonesia in 2022
