Building Local Capacity in Delivering Effective Behaviour Change Education

David Kwarteng

This project aims to equip and empower local champions to combat extinction threats to amphibian species e.g. human consumption and habitat destruction.

Project update: Twenty motivated champions, selected from biodiversity hotspots across Ghana, attended a ten day long training event in August, hosted by David and the project team. Workshops covered topics including amphibian ecology and conservation, research planning, survey skills and community advocacy. Having returned to their home communities, David and his team are working with the champions to identify and undertake local outreach programs based around endangered amphibian species.
