Biosphere Expeditions - Taster Days

If Springwatch presenters Kate Humble and Chris Packham’s recent filming of the diverse environment in Norfolk has inspired you to get involved in wildlife conservation, then Biosphere Expedition taster days in the Broads may just be the thing for you.

Taster days are just what they say they are: days that will give you a unique insight into what it’s like to be in the field with Biosphere Expeditions assisting scientists with wildlife research and conservation. You will discover expedition and wildlife research and conservation skills such as working with a map, GPS and compass, collecting important animal data, reading animal tracks and signs, using telemetry equipment and wildlife camera traps. You will also learn about the Broads National Park, its fauna and flora, history and the conservation work going on inside.

The ‘Taster Days’ are being held in the Norfolk Broads on 4 & 11 July.

For those who take a liking to wildlife and outdoor lifestyle, Biosphere Expeditions organises full-blown conservation expeditions all over the world too.

The cost is £65 per person; £50 will be credited to anyone who subsequently books to join an expedition.
