The WWCT team is a dynamic group made up of its always constant founding members who are the Trust's primary researchers, an awareness officer and research station assistant and part time research assistants who come and go depending on ongoing projects, field locations and seasons. Added to this mix are students and volunteers whose numbers vary at any given time period within the year. When working within Protected Areas wildlife department staff join our field teams as needed. We are a small but dedicated team that believes in remaining thus so as to maximize our impact on the ground and reduce overhead costs so as to ensure that our limited and vital funds are utilized primarily for our research for conservation efforts.
