Communications for Conservation Projects
Within conservation, there is a growing realization that we need to do much more to share our messages and encourage more support and action. As a result, conservation employers are rapidly looking for people with communications skills.
“If you want to get hired, and succeed as a professional conservationist you need Communications skills”.
After going through the course you’ll be able to plan and deliver effective communications activities, during your career as a wildlife conservationist. Making you more employable, competitive, and better at your job.
