The ACP partners with universities, the BZS, and the BAMZ to host courses for university students and conservation professionals. The ACP also supports conservation management courses that attract scientists and policy makers from around the world.
The ACP also underwrites training initiatives that give college students from the US and Canada the opportunity to complement their academic training with conservation field work in their chosen area of concentration: marine conservation research, conservation animal husbandry, and conservation educational outreach.
