This field course has a focus on ecological, conservation and wildlife management challenges in a semi-arid savannah environment.
You’ll get hands-on experience with small-group projects that are of ecological or conservation relevance to the region. This will reinforce and broaden your knowledge and understanding of the area and build upon aspects of the ecological training received at Leeds.
