The TBA provides key practical training for conservation biologists and practitioners with the potential to have a significant impact on biodiversity management and research. This is achieved through field courses, specialist skills workshops and applied research.

Providing information and resources

The bulletin board complements this by posting the most recent opportunities and announcements that focus on current job vacancies and funding sources for conservation biologists.
