Welcome to the website for Oxford University Nature Conservation Society (OUNCS). We are a student-run society offering talks, screenings and outdoor events on a wide range of current and contentious conservation issues, given by distinguished speakers from the University of Oxford and beyond.

We aim to provide a space for environmentally concerned people to learn about current issues in conservation, and a forum for discussion about future conservation solutions. We also aim to engage in practical conservation work where possible, as well as providing members with information about volunteer and job opportunities in the conservation sector.

Regular updates on our events can be found on our social media or by joining our mailing list. If you want to find out about past events, check out our blog page.

Get to know like-minded people, with similar passions and interests, at our talks and social events. You’ll have a whale of a time!
