About this course
Species – animal or plant – conservation is a key component of protected areas management. It is often included as a goal when planning activities, and is key when monitoring the obtained results and the impacts generated in the field. The MOOC’s goal is therefore to introduce the notion of species, what they represent within a protected area’s heritage, how managers conserve them, what the best conditions are, the limits, the opportunities, how can they be used to improve PA results and so on.
