Wildlife

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.

The Academy for Distance Learning has a history of supporting wildlife projects.The world renowned Conservationist David Youldon, Chief Operating Officer of AFRICA NEEDS LIONS www.lionalert.org, completed our Advanced Certificate in Wildlife Management and with previous qualifications, went on to study a Masters in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health at Edinburgh University. He was also accepted for a short course in Data Analysis in Ecology at the University of Oxford.

Currently we have the Primate Naturalist: Karin Saks, studying our Primatology course. Karin has been fostering and rehabilitating orphan baboons, caring for injured monkeys returned to the wild, plus promoting a harmonious co-existence between primates and humans since 1997. She also founded The Darwin Primate Group as a non-profit organisation in 2008 and in 2014, moved to Kwazulu Natal to research the endangered samango monkey populations in the Midlands. You are welcome to watch her online video: Co-existing Peacefully With Baboons/Monkeys and read her Blogspot on the Samango Monkey Project. If you want to support Karin in her work financially or practically, please contact us and we will happily pass your details on.

As you can see, our courses are highly respected by conservationists actually working in the field to help save the wildlife of our world, so you really can trust ADL to help you develop the knowledge and skills you need, to get involved in the environmental welfare of animals.

Get a Wildlife Qualification: For those who have always dreamed of working in a zoo, ADL has an excellent Online Diploma in Zoo Keeping. If you would like to work at a Safari Park or even organise safaris as a business, then look no further than our Online Diploma in Wildlife Management.

Already work with Animals and need Professional Development? If you wish to develop a career requiring a good understanding of how the environment affects Wildlife and how you can manage it, take a look at the Online Higher Advanced Diploma in Applied Animal & Environmental Welfare. It is a 12 module course which combines a choice of specialised animal and environmental courses. You can also complete individual courses online, such as Marine Studies or Primatology, if you prefer to take one course at a time and gradually build up your areas of expertise.

Get a Career working in Wildlife: By getting a career in Wildlife, you can pay the bills and look after the interests of wild animals at the same time. You can begin your wildlife adventure with either Wildlife Conservation or Wildlife Management. Both online wildlife courses will bolster your CV to charities and employers looking for knowledgeable wildlife enthusiasts.

Learn about Wildlife: Is it just an interest that you have in Wildlife? For anyone interested in birds, ADL's Ornithology course will lay the foundation for you to become an authority on the subject. Or do you like reptiles? If so, then Herpetology will give you the knowledge and skills required to look after their welfare, perhaps as a volunteer at a local animal sanctuary.
