Tropical Biology Association


The Tropical Biology Association (TBA) is a unique non-profit conservation organization that works to help safeguard biodiversity and manage natural resources in tropical regions by delivering innovative training and support to individuals and institutions working in conservation.
It runs field courses in Madagascar and Uganda for undergraduate students of its member universities, half  from Europe and half from Africa.  The School of Natural Sciences is a member of the TBA, so our students may apply for a place on these field courses. Previous students who have been on a TBA course are enormously enthusiastic about the experience.
