We have successfully run a total of twelve FGASA Field Guide level one courses and five one year Professional Field Guide courses, not to mention all the other shorter nature courses throughout the year. We have had the opportunity to host nature lovers from all over the world and it’s been our most absolute pleasure imparting knowledge about the importance of our sacred biodiversity here in Africa. We assert that nature conservation is about people and by reconnecting people with nature, has the immense power to effect positive change in the world.
