ECOLOGICAL AND FEASIBILITY STUDIES

We connect our field and academic background to design all types of ecological, behavioural and other types of studies related to antelope conservation, including habitat suitability modelling. We are skilled in data collection, processing and interpretation and thanks to the cooperation with our university we can implement our students into the tailored research activities where needed. We have experience with supervising students, wrtiting scientific papers, but also all types of reports, case studies, feasibility studies and much more, both in English and French.

We provide ecological and feasibility studies related to antelope conservation in Western Africa.
