Every Species Matters: Biodiversity and Ecosystem Resilience 

Humans are having an enormous impact on the Earth’s natural systems and the loss of biodiversity will be as catastrophic as climate change. During this masterclass, we will explore biodiversity and ecosystem resilience and the important work of zoologist and conservationists in researching, protecting and preserving it. This masterclass is for those interested in careers in Zoology, Conservation or who have an interest in our natural world.

Our Virtual Outreach

During the unprecedented times of social distancing, our team remain on hand to support you. Over the coming weeks, we are ensuring there is something for everyone, whether you’re a future student, teacher or adviser. We’ve got you.

 All our virtual outreach activities on offer have been developed to inform and motivate participants, and link to the Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Career Guidance. This report was redefined and published in January 2018. Laying out eight benchmarks, the report outlined good practice within careers guidance and an expectation that all secondary schools have a careers plan.

 Our online Masterclasses meet benchmarks 4 & 7 (Linking curriculum learning to careers & Encounters with further and higher education).
