Banjul 13°26'54" N 16°34'22" WJanuary 10, 2013 in Gambia
Went with my class to the Gambia for a 2 week work excursion. We did several projects, And had lessons under the supervision of Roy Armstrong. He teached us about different techniques to tackle problems you might come upon while working in this field. As a basis to work on, we had Farasuto community parc. A parc originally set up for birdwatching, which was fully operated by the nearby village. the parc provided money for the villagers and was spend on school supplies.
Problems, like illegal logging, hunting and wandering livestock made the perfect material to think about solutions which would both benefit the parc and the and the nearby villagers.
This experience has changed a lot of my thinking, and i learned a lot about working with people and conservation.Read more
