Species conservation in protected areas


About This Course

Species - animal or plant - conservation is a key component of protected area management. It is often included as a goal when planning activities, and is key when monitoring the obtained results and the impacts generated on the field. The MOOC’s goal is therefore to introduce the notion of species, what they represent within a protected area's heritage, how managers conserve them, what the best conditions are, the limits, the opportunities, how can they be used to improve PA results and so on.


There are no prerequisites for this course. However, depending on your knowledge and experience, we recommend that you you follow the MOOC "Protected Areas Management in Africa" before enrolling for this MOOC.
