Gauging the impact of conservation education: an evaluation of conservation capacity building projects in Liberia

Ernest B. Waylee

The overall goal is to give an early career Liberian conservationist the opportunity to work within a busy international NGO office, supporting their professional development through exposure to, and engagement in various stages of project management. The intern will also provide a technical lead to a research project designed to evaluate the impact of capacity building projects implemented in Liberia in the last 10 years by international and local NGOs, to measure the extent to which they have resulted in improved technical capacity in conservation. This will involve work with various partners of FFI’s within Liberia, providing significant networking opportunities for the intern.
