About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide land managers, researchers, teachers and students with online training and an accessible source of information to facilitate the sustainable management and conservation of Ethiopia's natural resources. Simply stated, we aim to build partnerships and increase information sharing among all those involved in conserving wildlife, forests, vegetation, and water resources throughout Ethiopia. The information compiled on this site has been compiled by scientists, resource managers, and academic professionals that come from an array of disciplines who share a common goal of building capacity through the sharing of knowledge.
