“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
“I genuinely LOVED the format of the online training sessions. It felt like being part of a classroom again!”
Reetika Maheshwary, Veterinarian, Wildlife Protection Society of India
“The PMWC approach and documents have already helped our project start to organise its long-term goals in a manageable, easy to use system.”

“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
