The programme will cover, Techniques for biodiversity monitoring and identification, how to create and manage national databases and recording networks, approaches to communicating biodiversity to a range of audiences, how to lead and manage school and community based biodiversity monitoring projects and how to develop biodiversity education materials for different groups based on FSC expertise.
