Wildlife and Conservation Training for Kenya

  • Kenya-banner

  • In March 2013 the Centre for Ecology, Environment and Conservation (CEEC) at Oxford Brookes University working with local partners (Kenya Wildlife Service, National Museums of Kenya, and Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association) delivered a field based training program to improve conservation skills and engagement with wildlife conservation, alongside enhancing employability amongst the population living and working in, and close to, the Tsavo National Park and other wildlife areas. The training, consisting of a mix of classroom and field based activities will focused on identification skills as well as conservation of mammals, birds, reptiles and plants. This training also equipped participants with key communication, bush craft and guiding skills and discussions around human wildlife interactions.

    There are no further courses planned at the moment, but if you would be interested in developing a partnership to discuss future courses in Kenya please contact Prof. Stewart Thompson (sthompson@brookes.ac.uk)
