The humble otter was on the brink of extinction in the British Isles until the concerted efforts of conservationists bought them back. Now, otters have been spotted in every county in the UK and their resurgence is considered a great success by the many people who worked hard to bring them back.

There are Wildlife projects all over the world, in employment, through charities, volunteering and volunteering holidays. Conservation projects include: dolphins in Tenerife, different marine animals in Madagascar, big cats in biodiversity rich Costa Rica and Apes in Africa. These projects are increasingly becoming the lifeline of many different species, as natural habitats shrink, pollution increases and climate change devestates ecosystems.

He was also accepted for a short course in Data Analysis in Ecology at the University of Oxford.
