Strategy Development for Wildlife Conservation

Learn skills to help you create conservation strategies that have more impact
Strategy Development for Wildlife Conservation

Who is this for? Conservation professionals, early career starters and career-switchers. So far, we have trained over 1000 conservationists from more than 70 countries, working for organisations such as the Worldwide Fund for Nature, the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Wildlife Trusts. You can see all of our graduates here.

When is it? 15th September to 20th October 2021 (6 weeks, 3 hours learning/week).

What will I learn? In this workshop you will be guided through each step in designing a comprehensive strategy for achieving your conservation goals. You will learn how to:

  • Apply key principles that lead to developing a stronger strategy
  • Engage stakeholders, to ensure that the right groups are involved in developing the strategy
  • Carry out a situation analysis, to better understand and document the current situation that the project team is trying to change
  • Define the impact the project team wants to achieve
  • Plan the work the project team will carry out to achieve the impact
  • Set a monitoring approach that will provide the project team with the information they need to assess the project’s impact and to adapt to changing conditions and new information.

What will my learning experience be like? You will learn through:

  • Pre-recorded videos sent out each week for you to learn from in your own time
  • Live expert-led sessions every Wednesday. 2 live session times available (10.00am or 6.00pm BST) to fit your schedule
  • If you miss a live session you can still watch it in your own time later on
  • A multiple-choice exam to help you focus your learning efforts and assess your own ability. On passing the exam you will get a certificate to show others (e.g. managers or potential employers) that you have attained this skill.
