60 day Field Guide Course
Although this course forms the foundation for a career in field guiding, it is also perfect for a gap year experience or extended safari.
The course offers a comprehensive knowledge base for careers in nature and conservation across the globe. The principals of taxonomy, ecology, animal behaviour, weather & climate and astronomy, to name just a few, apply whatever continent you may be on.
You will leave with a wealth of knowledge that will enrich every visit you make to wilderness areas for the rest of your life.
