Omali Vida Nón’s team participated in the “Technical Course on Ecotourism”, coordinating a 25h course on Cartography. During the classes, technical training was delivered on map reading, using elevation maps to plan routes, calculate distances in the map using the scale, orientation using the compass and mark coordinates from a GPS device in the map. Students had the opportunity to work with plenty of cartographic material of Principe created especially for the course and they even drew their own map of Santo Antonio city! This way, our project also contributes to the training and capacity development of conservation and tourism staff in Príncipe.
