Mr Gilles Etoga

With my academic background of Forest and wildlife Engineer, I started my career in Conservation as a Protected Area Conservator combined with being a biologist doing scientific studies in the concerned protected area in the South East Cameroon, now called Jengi in 1996. All along this life of Conservator/ biologist I use to attend refresher /training session organized by both WWF and other Organizations, directly related to conservation like the research training for tropical forest usually organized by WCS, or others like the PMP (People management programme), LIFT,   organized by WWF. 
Being a Manager (Cameroon segment of the TRIDOM) in the second world richest tropical forests, requires that a more aggressive and efficient approach is used to conserve this rich biodiversity of this part of Congo Basin forest. And WWF with is large network, is the kind of organization that can give you opportunity to work on it.
