Conservation Global offers custom environmental courses for students in undergraduate and masters programs.
We are able to offer a variety of courses, including Policy and Practice of Sustainable Development, Wildlife Management, Conservation Biology, Sustainable Business Practices, Conservation Ecology, and a variety of Pre-Veterinary courses. We can tailor these courses to meet the needs of a specific program.
All of our programs are approached in an interdisciplinary manner, benefiting from the diversity of flora, fauna, and culture in the region.
Depending on the course, students will spend all of their time in the Garden Route region in one of our eclectic student housing options, or if the course includes a comparative urban perspective, students will spend part of their time in Cape Town.
Conservation Global organized a dually educational and adventurous experience across South Africa. As a student I was able to learn more about apartheid and its effects on the nation from prominent political leaders. Also, I was able to better understand the needs and efforts of conservationists across the area to protect some of the worlds most endangered animals. From finding dolphins in the Indian Ocean, cage diving with great whites, and spotting lions on the game reserve, this experience reestablished the necessity in myself to protect our wild lands across the globe. If we do not protect them, who will?
I spent two weeks in South Africa with Conservation Global in a partnered trip with Franklin University Switzerland. It is safe to say that these two weeks are by far the most memorable of my life thanks to the effort Conservation Global put into both the educational and adventurous aspects of our trip. From hiking up Lion’s Head in Cape Town, diving with Great White sharks in the Indian ocean, and near encounters with the endangered White Rhinoceros, this NGO helped plan an incredible experience for my research conservation class. If it were not for Conservation Global I do not think we could have done many of the activities we did- such as engage with students at Tsiba College on issues of sustainability on our campuses, and meet and listen to Mark Rutherford lecture on how to run Gondwana Game Reserve. I will forever be grateful for these two weeks and for all of the hard work Conservation Global put into this experience!
