The ‘Learning Environments in Marine, Urban and Rural areas’ (LEMUR) project is an accredited training scheme that offers a fast track route to developing the necessary skills and competencies required to gain a professional post in nature conservation. The ‘on the job’ placements and training reflect either a marine, urban or rural aspect of nature conservation.

To date, project LEMUR has provided 90 heritage bursary training placements, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund over the last 10 years that have given each placement the necessary skills and experience to enter a professional post in nature conservation.

The Trust is proud to be one of three training hubs which provided six 9-month work-based accredited training placements a year hosted by a broad range of local heritage conservation organisations.

Project LEMUR has now come to a close, 95% of LEMURs have succesfully moved into jobs in the environmental sector
