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.
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!
The South Africa travel was the most incredible experience of life!! With Conservation Global’s help, I experienced memories that will last a lifetime. From learning about sustainability in townships and wildlife conservatory at game reserves, to the social and economic issues that South Africa struggles with today, Conservation Global allowed me to be enthusiastic and engaged throughout our trip, as well as encouraged me to think about how my relationship with nature and the environment will affect future generations for years to come.
