Online Courses

India is a hotbed of bio diversity. Yet Indians have little knowledge about our natural resources. Why?

The Internet population in India is growing exponentially. Yet there is no ONLINE course exclusively catering to Indian flora and fauna which can sensitize a person to his immediate surroundings. Why?

Environmental management is an industry that promises a growth in opportunity over the coming decades. Despite this fact though, graduates from environmental courses often find it difficult to gain the employment they hoped for. One must ask why?

IndianWildlifeClub, the community of nature lovers who care, are proud to partner with the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) to bring their online certificate courses to our members.
