University students now have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a summer in the heart of a tropical rainforest, the plains of an African savannah or the waters of a coral reef, conducting critical research for wildlife conservation and environmental protection.
Operation Wallacea will be hosting an information session at Sir Temi Zammit Hall this coming Wednesday on how you can take part in this extraordinary research opportunity.
The session will go over what it takes to spend a summer as a research assistant at some of the world’s most stunning and exotic locations and the best thing is it’s open to everyone attending the University of Malta, whether you’re a science or drama undergrad!
Apart from being an important opportunity to conduct some critical research, the expedition offers students an opportunity to travel and experience different walks of life they didn’t know existed.
Expedition locations include South Africa, Honduras, Indonesia, Madagascar, Guyana, Croatia, Romania, Peru, Ecuador, Fiji, Malawi, Dominica, Galapagos Islands and Mexico!
Even if you aren’t considering pursuing a career in this field, Operation Wallacea has a lot to offer, including an open water diving course, jungle survival skills and more…
…the full details of which you can find by attending their information session on October 16th at 12 PM.
“Whether it be to learn valuable field techniques to strengthen your CV or to help you decide whether tropical fieldwork is of interest for your career, many students join our expeditions just for the unforgettable international experience in remote places that most people don’t get to see!”
Expeditions can last between two and eight weeks during Summer 2020. There are only eight spots available per expedition and they will go fast! So if this interests you (which it definitely should), attend the info session this week to learn more.
