Background of the need:
The need of good wildlife conservation management to face the danger of many species extinction, to improve the situation of the threatened species;
Very few or lack of expertise compare to the needs;
Very few or lack of professional training for expertise in wildlife conservation management, not only at the government and the NGO sectors, but also at the academicians.
The need of a common background base knowledge at all sections of wildlife conservation activities (field, policy, health, traffic-trade, campaign, social community sectors etc.).
The need of the holistic integrated common background knowledge of wildlife conservation management for its actors and stakeholders (policy makers, field officers, health controllers and managers, campaigners etc.)
A tailor made programme suitable for each participant who are expected coming from all sectors of wildlife management, with a holistic integrated programme with more than 70% field implementation activities.
It is expected that as the result of this programme there will be experts on wildlife conservation management from all sectors: lawyers, field officers, wildlife veterinarians, public relation/campaigners etc. They, then, could lead and direct wildlife improvement properly.
This programme is opened to personnel of the national parks and other conservation area up to the policy makers (at the parliament, government agencies), trading controllers (incl. wildlife quarantine, health control), people responsible to the habitat and species improvements (incl. reproduction possibilities, health management), and to economical-cultural and social aspects (incl. campaigners, educators), and many others.Learn more about Suryo Prawiroatmodjo
