Aquatic research requires advanced skills and experience which are rarely taught in the academic institutions of African developing countries. AMMCO seeks 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 exposing them to various conservation techniques. As a result, we frequently provide internship, mentorship, and workshops to students and fishermen.

    • 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, logistical and financial support to the interns.

    • Mentorship

AMMCO accompanies young people who are passionate about marine wildlife into becoming professionals as we guide them through the realization of sound 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 and the use of the Siren mobile App to collect field data about sightings and strandings.
