Students will have the opportunity to work alongside local organisations aiming to develop self-sufficient communities or advance research in conservation and ecology. The region of Andalusia offers a wonderful environment to develop a unique set of skills and understand community engagement. Working with people of different nationalities and backgrounds will be a great asset for a student looking to progress a career in this sector.
Our partners in this programme work in a range of fields, from environmental justice and consumer rights to managing food banks for the disadvantaged.
Doñana Biological Station
Our main partner in ecology and conservation, Doñana Biological Station (EBD), is a prominent public research institute linked to one of the most important natural protected areas in Europe, Doñana national park. Their mission is to conduct multidisciplinary research aimed at better understanding how biodiversity is generated, maintained and damaged. EBD also investigates the consequences of its loss and the chances of its preservation and restoration.
Communicating their research to the public and engaging with various stakeholders is a vital part of the organisation. Students will have the opportunity to assist researchers and specialists in a variety of scientific and conservation projects.
