This year OuTrop’s Communications Team organised internet training for the field staff. The training is divided into 4 groups starting at 9 am and finishes around 3 pm and almost all the field staff have now participated. The staff were very pleased with the training and the chance to learn more about our social media work.

OuTrop encourages all field staff to have access to all the information and technology available, even though they work in the forest, but they can also update their knowledge of the information out there.
