Flagships of Southern Africa is an Introductory Level course, dedicated to ten of the most iconic species in Southern Africa. The course introduces each species by covering the basic biology such as communication strategies, distribution, and taxonomic classification. The conservation status of each species is expanded to include major threats, projects for their protection and research publications about their behaviour. We cover what makes them a Flagship species and what they contribute to their ecosystem. The Flagships of Southern Africa course is ideal for anyone interested in the conservation value or status of Africa’s most well-known species. All lectures and information is provided in text format through PDF documents on the online platform. Quizzes are completed online.
