We put people at the heart of conservation, giving them the skills and support they need to maximise their impact on the ground.

Investing In People

TBA alumni and the institutions we support are making a positive impact in conservation on the ground. They are using their new skills to manage natural environments sustainably, for the benefit of people and biodiversity.

A remarkable 90% of our alumni are in contact with TBA. That means we are able to measure our impact through the conservation success stories of the alumni we have trained and supported.

Conservation Champions

Significant numbers of our alumni are now in influential positions, shaping conservation policy and practice in their own countries. Some have launched new organisations to strengthen conservation; others focus on research to build a better knowledge base; and some have become teachers themselves.

A Multiplier Effect

Inspired by their TBA experience, alumni across Africa have set up TBA Alumni Groups. These groups are a powerful legacy: multiplying TBA’s impact by helping to train the next generation of conservation biologists.

Supporting Institutions

TBA’s specialist courses provide tailored training for conservation organisations to fill the skills gaps that they identify as priority. This has a tangible impact, increasing effectiveness of individuals, and teams, to address key challenges on a local and national level.

Practical Solutions

TBA alumni join forces to launch practical conservation projects that are tackling national conservation priorities.
