Operation Wallacea

" Alfred Russel Wallace marveled at the "adaptation of animals to their food, their habits, and the localities in which they are found". Projects of the Trust embody Wallace’s beliefs and strive not only to preserve these species and habitats, but also to work with the people for whom his localities are home.


Operation Wallacea (Opwall) is a conservation research organisation that is funded by, and relies on, teams of student volunteers who join expeditions for the opportunity to work on real-world research programs alongside academic researchers. Large teams of ecologists, scientists, academics and postgraduate researchers who are specialists in various aspects of biodiversity or social and economic studies are concentrated at the target study sites. This gives volunteers the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects alongside field specialists.
