I come from Cameroon, born in a small town called Limbe, where I did my secondary and high school education. In 2009, I obtained a BSc in Botany from the University of Buea. A few months after my undergraduate study, I joined the Ebo Forest research Project (EFRP) as a monitoring assistant. For six months I worked with the Botany team, collecting and identifying plant species. From then on I have been working with the transect monitoring team, carrying out general surveys on large mammals, with an emphasis on primates.
I am particularly interested in the conservation of primates in the Ebo forest in Cameroon as well as local communities’ involvement in wildlife conservation. My expectations from the course are to obtain new survey and sampling techniques, and also more ideas on data analysis and field research.
