The Ambios 12-week nature conservation experience provides you with the foundation skills required for a career in nature conservation along with a comprehensive insight into working in the sector. This 12 -week placement provides you with training based at Lower Sharpham Farm on the stunning Sharpham Estate, as well as across the South Devon landscape, understanding better the unique habitats and conservation pressures facing our native flora and fauna.
