Launch a conservation career today

Empower a young African conservationist  to protect the wildlife they love.

Gift an aspiring conservationist a scholarship today and help them change the future for Africa’s biodiversity.

Life-changing courses

TBA’s month-long course puts young people at the heart of biodiversity  protection. We provide 100% relevant, expert-led, practical teaching, taking place in the very habitats that need conserving, leaving students equipped and empowered to make a difference on the ground straight away.

Our courses work

Our TBA alumni are bringing species back from the brink of extinction, protecting rainforests and wetlands, improving the  lives and livelihoods of local communities, breaking down gender barriers, and so much more.

Be a part of the solution

We offer these courses to up-and-coming African conservationists who otherwise would not be able to afford a place.

We need your help to do this

By providing a scholarship you will give a young person the opportunity of a lifetime, launching their career, empowering them to help solve the challenges that Africa’s biodiversity faces, and inspiring the next generation of African conservationists.
