Solomon Islanders attend Pacific Islands Community based Conservation Course in Suva

Two Solomon Islanders who are working with community conservation oriented organisations in Honiara and Gizo are currently attending a Pacific Islands Community-based Conservation Course (PICC Course) along with other Pacific participants at the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji.

The two Solomon participants are Thomas Bebeu from the Foundation of the Peoples of the South Pacific International (FSPI) Solomons office, and Joan Pita of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) which is based in Gizo in the Western Solomon Islands.

Thomas Bebeu was a 2006 graduate of USP majoring in Biology and Chemistry whilst Joan Pita also graduated from USP with a Marine Science Bachelors degree.

The PICC Course has started in mid March and will end in the first week of April. The aim of the course is to enhance the skills and knowledge of the participants to build their confidence and expertise in supporting community-based conservation management.
