Operation Wallacea is a biodiversity research and conservation management organization hosting scientific expeditions in Indonesia, Transylvania, South Africa, Madagascar, Peru, Guyana, Honduras, and Mexico. These research sites are run in remote locations with the help of university volunteers and academics from around the world.

Students can join the research expeditions during the summer months to gain experience with field research and data collection:

  • Research Assistants – volunteers gain experience performing various survey methods and taking field ecology training courses; serves as a volunteer-based internship and some credit options are available.
  • Thesis Students – Operation Wallacea provides support for students to collect data for a thesis project at the undergraduate or Master’s level.
  • Expedition Medicine Course – a chance for Pre-Med students to experience field medicine with expedition teams working in remote areas.

There are funding opportunities available from within our organization. Most importantly, all the research goes towards protecting valuable ecosystems by levering funding and monitoring the success of various conservation management strategies. To learn more about these research opportunities and conservation management programs, please feel free to email us at USA@opwall.com for more details.
