Aquatic research requires advanced skills and experience which are rarely taught in academic institutions of African developing countries. AMMCO seek to contribute to the human resource gap in the field of aquatic megafauna conservation and research. Hence, AMMCO is devoted to immersing the next generation of African researchers in the field of marine mammal research and exposed them to various conservation techniques. Therefore, we provide internship, mentorship, and workshops to students and fishermen frequently.

    • Internship

Every year, we receive two to five interns. The interns come from various academic institutions of Cameroon including but not limited to the Universities of Dschang, Yaounde I and Douala, the Halieutic Institute of Yabassi and the Wildlife School of Maroua. We provide technical, logistic and financial support to the interns.

    • Mentorship

AMMCO accompany young passionates of marine wildlife to becoming professional as we guide them in achieving sounding conservation projects.

    • Workshops

We organize training workshops on various aspects of aquatic science and conservation. The different training areas include but are not limited to manatee survey techniques, manatee necropsy, bee-farming, ecotourism, habitat monitoring, use of Siren mobile App for sighting and stranding report.
