Mon - Fri,
7 AM to 5 PM
A training workshop was organised for hunters and farmers. The workshop strengthened participants’ knowledge on the need for conservation and the benefits therein. Through their participation in this action, they were able to acquire skills in livestock production (specifically how to construct standard housing for small ruminants and the overall management of the enterprise).
The criteria for selecting participants for this action was based on snowball sampling technique – where identifiable hunters/poachers recruit other subjects from their acquaintances. About 50 individuals comprising 29 males and 21 females benefited from this training and subsequently provided with 100 breeding stock of livestock (Sheep and goat) to start livestock farming.
