Continuing the training series that Center for Nature conservation and Development (CCD) is implementing to improve research and conservation capacity for CCD’s staffs. February 2021, in collaboration with Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources (IEBR), CCD held a training on “Research and conservation for small mammals, bat and bird in Vietnam”. Experienced researchers such as Dr. Nguyen Truong Son – a small mammals and bats expert and Dr. Le Manh Hung – an ornithologist share their research experiences with participants include key fields and laboratory research methods. During the training, participants have change to exchange and enhance their knowledge, especially field research skills and share update information on taxonomy, research method and new technology that could aid field research as well as identify conservation challenges and threats to wildlife in Vietnam.
CCD continue to organize more trainings to enhance research skills for young biologists and staffs. The information from the trainings and lesson learnt from senior researchers will help CCD to ensure more effectively research and conservation efforts to protect and facilitate the recovery of endangered flora and fauna in Vietnam and the region.
