PARA-ECOLOGIST Platform website

This website is a platform for para-ecologists worldwide as well as for projects, organisations or individuals that are involved in the capacity development of para-ecologists. The platform aims to facilitate the networking and sharing of information within the para-ecologist community but also inform the public about the concepts, aims and methodology of para-ecologist programmes.

A para-ecologist is a specialist with extensive local knowledge and being trained largely on-the-job in one or more fields of ecological science. He or she is mutually communicating with the local and scientific communities, contributing to both scientific research and local development.
