The TBA held its first workshop in April 2019 in response to this capacity gap training 22 conservation managers on how to analyze and interpret citizen science data. This second workshop will give participants an opportunity to gain and share skills, knowledge and experiences in managing their citizen science projects while also providing an opportunity to present results.

Who is this course for?

The workshops are designed for African conservation scientists and citizen science project leaders – preferably with a masters degree – who are actively collecting citizen science data and need to know how to analyze it, interpret and present it. Applicants are invited from non-governmental organizations, universities, research and conservation institutions and government research departments.

Who is running the course?

The workshops form part of activities under the project Citizen Science in Africa- making it work for conservation led by the Tropical Biology Association and involving University of Cambridge, National Museums of Kenya, British Trust for Ornithology, and the Kenya Bird Map Project, with funding from Cambridge Conservation Initiative’s Collaborative Fund.
