Durrell Conservation Academy

Durrell Conservation Academy


The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust’s international training centre has now been renamed the Durrell Conservation Academy.  The name change represents the culmination of a year-long process to determine how best to represent the training that we provide to conservationists worldwide.  Since we first opened our doors in 1984 we have trained more than 3300 conservationists from 135 countries in the principles and practice of endangered species recovery.


The Durrell Conservation Academy now runs a wide suite of courses, from practical training in invasive species management and GIS through to conservation leadership and project management.  We run courses in-country as well as at our headquarters in Jersey, ranging in length from 3 days to a one year Master’s course.  In 2013 we will be launching our five month Post-Graduate Diploma in Endangered Species Recovery which will be run in Mauritius, providing participants first-hand experience of working in field teams to recover some of the most threatened species in the world.  To find out more please visit our website at
