Current Opportunities and Events

Every year Ambios deliver a range of nature conservation opportunities in both the UK and Europe. Some are suitable for students at the very beginning of a career in conservation. Some are suitable for seasoned wildlife professionals who want to improve their skills in a particular area. Some are even suitable for nature lovers who want to learn more about flora and fauna.

We also run events which are open to the general public, including our annual summer Farm and Wildlife Fayre which was a great success this year.

Please view our  calendar below to find an opportunity that is right for you. You can also keep updated about new courses and events  by joining our mailing list.
