Fossey Fund helps train park guards in Rwanda

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.
