Tree Courses
African Resource
hello this is text  
African Resource is a dynamic tool that can be applied to the training of individuals wishing to enter the naturalist field or whom are already a part of it, for further enlightenment. This product specifically addresses and explores in-depth species and concept specific topics and is run as a workshop covering a series of modules.

African Resource brings the books alive and understanding can be imparted to listeners through a more interactive approach that includes discussion, visual media and the dissemination of relevant and interesting species / topic accounts. There is a reduced rate for all course participants on the book: "Game Ranger in my Backpack" an interpretative guide to the Lowveld and the perfect compliment to the workshop content. Click here for more on Game Ranger in my Backpack.

There are two possible contexts for the knowledge training:

  1. In City (esp. JHB) for organizations such as FGASA (Field Guides Association of Southern Africa)
  2. In Situ training at place of employment e.g. game lodges or as an add-on to existing training courses.
