Testimonials from previous trainees: 

The two week course in Portugal was a great experience and really helps to develop skills in all types of wildlife identification, from birds, to plants, to invertebrates. The montado and river ecosystems in Portugal are spectacular and full of such a variety of different species. There was never a dull moment!”
