United for Wildlife, a conservation collaboration including the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), has launched a free online course to engage with budding conservationists.

The Introducing Conservation course is video-based and presented by experts from around the world of conservation. It gives people a route to learn the conservation fundamentals they may not otherwise have access to. Two eight hour modules have been released so far, with two more to follow later this year.

Nisha Owen, EDGE of Existence Programme Manager at ZSL, said:

"We’re delighted to release this innovative learning tool, and hope to see the course go from strength to strength over the coming months as the other modules are released. By introducing people to conservation, we’re taking the first steps to empower the next generation of conservation leaders."

The course content was developed by the Zoological Society of London, supported by the other partners of the United for Wildlife collaboration including The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
