Manager of Advanced Ecotourism certified Rainbow Oceans Palms Resort Tanya Beech has been awarded a Churchill Fellowship to research Indigenous Ranger training programs in Africa (South Africa, Mozambique and Tanzania) in 2014.
Tanya works as a vocational trainer delivering Conservation and Land Management training to Indigenous Land and Sea Rangers in remote communities in northern Australia. Tanya’s Fellowship will allow her to research training programs in Africa that are integrating traditional knowledge into protected area management.
Tanya would be very happy to hear from anyone involved in cultural tourism, Indigenous land management or vocational training to discuss the parameters of her research. She would also welcome contact from anyone who has worked in training programs in Africa and can offer advice on successful contacts in the conservation training industry.
