“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

“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

“Great experience! It was a fun way of learning things”. Babu Ram Lamichhane, National Trust for Nature Conservation, Nepal
