Conservation Training for African Partners
The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International shares its unique expertise with partners to build conservation capacity in Africa.
Training for conservation partners
Karisoke™ Research Center staff write, and keep updated, a series of training manuals covering all aspects of gorilla behavior, conservation, and biodiversity in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. These are used for education and training of new staff, students, park guards, tourist guides and others. Karisoke also conducts training sessions for park tourist guides from Rwanda. These include topics such as history and biodiversity of the park, gorilla and other primate behavior, ecology and conservation, Karisoke™/Fossey history, guide interpretation, and more.
