Network of Conservation Educators and Practitioners (NCEP)
The Network of Conservation Educators and Practitioners (NCEP) program is a global initiative that seeks to improve the availability and quality of conservation education and professional training worldwide. Through our open access teaching modules we improve access to high quality, up-to-date educational resources for conservation teachers and professional trainers around the world, particularly in regions with high biodiversity, significant threats, and limited opportunities. Additionally, NCEP provides opportunities for training in effective teaching practices that model that realities of conservation practice and target the skill sets required in the professional world. We also engage in research to advance the field of conservation education and support conservation capacity development efforts at the local, regional, and international levels.

NCEP modules are up-to-date, locally relevant materials to support conservation teaching, training and learning, and are available online as well as through our projects on the ground. All NCEP modules are available free of charge for educational use, adaptation, and distribution.

NCEP develops training for educators and professionals in effective teaching practices that model the realities of conservation practice, and a variety of topics that support conservation work. Our emphasis is on how to help educators target professional skill sets, such as critical thinking, data analysis, collaborative problem solving, and professional communication.
