We are delighted to be working with the IUCN Conservation Planning Specialist Group (CPSG) to deliver this exciting training opportunity.

Planning for the recovery of threatened species is a complex process and navigating through this socio-cultural ‘minefield’ takes a suite of skills which are rarely covered within existing degree or post-graduate biology course programmes.

This course is designed to build capacity for the effective facilitation of species conservation planning processes. The course is relevant to conservation professionals and academics working within zoos, universities and field projects, and in particular those involved in, or wishing to be involved in, developing conservation plans.

Join our team of experienced conservation professionals and experts for a 4-day workshop of lectures and facilitated scenarios in which you will put into practice the skills you have learnt.
By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to facilitate effective workshops and meetings
  • Apply the One Plan Approach to species conservation planning processes
  • Deal with conflict under different circumstances
  • Demonstrate effective listening skills
  • Describe how to provide feedback to individuals to improve relationships and work effectively
