EDGE Fellowship Award

Congratulations to the Founder and Executive Director of THRESCOAL, Mr Emmanuel Amoah for being awarded the 2017-2019 EDGE Fellowship. The EDGE Fellowship programme is an initiative of the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) that seeks to create a new global network of in-country conservationists trained in cutting-edge wildlife management techniques and well-equipped to design and implement a project for a local Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) species. Through this fellowship, Emmanuel will undergo a 4-week Conservation Tools training at Madagascar to equip him with essential training in techniques to plan and implement his EDGE project titled 'Spatial Ecology and Population Genetics of Mecistops cataphractus in Ghana'. This project aims to preserve the remnant population of Critically Endangered Mecistops cataphractus in the Obuasi Municipality and the Mole National Park. He will also benefit from a 2-week Conservation Leadership training course in London on successful completion of the fellowship to help prepare him for the next stage of his career. We believe the training he will receive through the fellowship will be of immense help to THRESCOAL as an organisation in achieving one of our core objectives which is capacity building. Once again, congratulations! Emmanuel.
