CLP is proud to have supported some of the leading lights in conservation and it is always a great pleasure to find out how their careers are progressing.
Past award winners often credit CLP with catalysing their successful careers. Many of them are now working full time in the conservation sector within national and international NGOs, universities, research organisations and private companies as biodiversity consultants. Several CLP alumni are now directing country-wide, regional and global programmes of work.
Leadership, lessons and lemurs!
