Conservation Online

Here at EDGE, we have a strong focus on raising awareness of EDGE species and conservation issues, as well as training the next generation of conservation leaders. To this end, the United for Wildlife Conservation Online Learning Platform, produced by ZSL and e-learning provider Avado, provides free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on a variety of conservation topics.

Explore to learn more about key conservation issues!

You can take part from anywhere in the world, and do not need to have a conservation background. There are introductory courses for those who want to learn more about conservation, and more in-depth courses for those who want to explore particular topics, as well as more information about embarking on a career in conservation.

For those of you keen to find out more about EDGE’s work, enrol on Species and Spaces to find out more about prioritisation, and how it’s put into practice, with a focus on our pygmy sloth project.

Explore these video-based courses at your own pace, with quizzes to test your knowledge and opportunities to earn badges for completion or achieving perfect scores. Translations and subtitles are also provided in Spanish, Mandarin, Vietnamese and Hindi for non-native English speakers, with downloadable transcripts and audio podcasts.

Connect with learners from around the world in our online community forum, discuss topical issues or share inspiring conservation stories, and stay informed via our opportunities page with up-to-date volunteering, fellowships and job postings.
