Fieldwork helps build lifelong relationships with the natural world.
Fieldwork is also an essential part of preparation for successful careers in ecology.
People need nature even more than nature needs people. Fieldwork helps people understand this. Human society will benefit from this increased understanding. Those who take part in fieldwork can also benefit as individuals, gaining the lifelong enjoyment and health benefits of engaging with nature.
Atkins are committed to technical excellence. Within ecology, and related subjects, fieldwork is vital to help people on the pathway to a rewarding career. Atkins are delighted to support the Year of Fieldwork.
