BCG100 for Schools - Pathways to becoming wildlife researchers - SPREAD THE WORD

Next week, on Tuesday 11 May 2021, at 10am BST/11am SAST, VALIDATE members Prof Michele Miller and Dr Wynand Goosen will be talking to school students about the paths each took to follow their passion and become wildlife researchers.

This is an exciting opportunity for school students to engage with two excellent career researchers and we ask that VALIDATE members please share details of the registration page with young people or educators who might want to get involved - www.validate-network.org/bcg100-schools
