“After 10 years of managing a project, this is the first time I’ve actually been trained in it. I found it very useful to actually get some principles and processes for how you should best manage a project, rather than just learning as you go, and often being very inefficient.” 
Dr Amy Dickman, WildCRU (University of Oxford) and Director of Ruaha Carnivore Project, Tanzania

“The PMWC approach is a tailored way to develop and implement conservation projects, which I am intending to use extensively in my future work.” 
Mariana Carvalho, Project Leader, BirdLife International

“It was a great value for our organization and for my professional career. I strongly encourage future young conservationists to take this course”. 
Sergio Cumbula, Project manager, Lupa, Mozambique
