We have big plans this year and we want you to be part of this new adventure. We have been working on a new “Membership Category System” and we are bringing new “Features and Benefits”for all 3 different categories.
Some great events will happen this year 2019; TOSCO Trust is partnering with Elephant Human Relations Aid (EHRA), Eloolo Permaculture initiative and Snakes of Namibia, to propose 1 free* Conservation workshop in the year for all Leopard and Lion TOSCO members. These workshops aim at bringing more understanding of conservation issues to tourism players and build relationships between key stakeholders.
The Conservation Workshop guarantees funds to these organizations to continue with the great job they are doing and at the same time, these workshop grants support training with a strong hands-on learning component.
