great course.. totally enjoyed the house.

Excellent short course on the management of protected areas in Africa. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in developing an understanding in protected area management.

Very interesting and helpful by teaching me about the field I want to work in, thank you. Many documents to read. More people should pay attention to these important subjects.
