Translocation is an important measure for reducing the loss of biodiversity. Successful translocations can be achieved if they utilise underpinning science and if experience is shared across the scientific community. Training of conservation scientists is a key aspect for these conservation actions. 

The course “Plant Translocation – Theory and Techniques” is dedicated to PhD students and postdoctoral fellows engaged in scientific research programmes and aims to share and disseminate the latest knowledge in the field of ecological restoration. The course aims to train new scientists in the field of threatened species restoration and establish a dialogue between experienced conservation scientists and the next generation of practitioners.
