Training the next generation of biologists to help save the Cross River gorilla in Nigeria

Charles Emogor

The goal of the internship with WCS is to provide hands on training and field experience to help produce a new generation of biologists to support our work to save the Cross River gorilla and other endangered wildlife in the Cross River State, Nigeria.  At the same time the internship is expected to provide much needed additional support in the field to assist the conservation and management of three sites in the Cross River gorilla landscape in Nigeria where WCS is currently working: Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary, the Mbe Mountains and the Okwangwo Division of Cross River National Park.
