Testimonials

“After 10 years of managing a project, this is the first time I’ve actually been trained in it. I found it very useful to actually get some principles and processes for how you should best manage a project, rather than just learning as you go, and often being very inefficient.” Dr Amy Dickman, WildCRU (University of Oxford) and Director of Ruaha Carnivore Project, Tanzania

“The PMWC approach is a tailored way to develop and implement conservation projects, which I am intending to use extensively in my future work.”
Mariana Carvalho, Project Leader, BirdLife International

“It was a great value for our organization and for my professional career. I strongly encourage future young conservationists to take this course”. Sergio Cumbula, Project manager, Lupa, Mozambique

“The PMWC approach…[has] helped our project to organise its long term goals in a manageable, easy to use system.”
Antonia Leckie, Lion Landscapes

“I genuinely LOVED the format of the online training sessions. It felt like being part of a classroom again!”
Reetika Maheshwary, Wildlife Protection Society of India

    I attended Project Management for Wildlife Conservation Training Workshop organised by WildTeam UK in October 2019 in Oxfordshire. It was a great experience and I learned a lot about project management which I am currently using at my work place. I highly recommend this training for other conservation professionals. I am sure that they will find it beneficial too.

    I attended this course in Cambridge in January 2018 and found it extremely informative and progressive. As a mature student who has worked in the “Conservation” world for years … this opened my eyes to a new way of thinking and planning my work. The team were great and very helpful indeed. A thoroughly enjoyable course and something I would recommend to budding Project Managers worldwide.

    I completed this course online in March this year. The tutors are very approachable, open to communication and informative. As someone who is used to being thrown in the deep end and sink or swim, this course now allows me to have a way more structured approach to project management. It is a great way of breaking down all the different stages, keeping everyone informed and accountable. Totally recommend.
