Brexit – UK citizens to EU

Brexit and Ambios

Ambios is completely committed to creating and delivering nature conservation training learning opportunities in the UK and Europe and we will continue to welcome applications for our conservation traineeships. The Wildlife Survey and Interpretation Skills course will continue in 2020, with both long and short programmes running as planned (www.ambios.net/wsis/).

The Ambios position is that we are delighted to work with our European partners and friends and hope that this will continue long into the future. Our collective efforts for nature conservation and the need for biodiversity are borderless. It is vital to humanity that there is an abundance of wildlife across the world.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch, by emailing farm@ambios.net or phoning 01803 732747.
