ACE's 10th birthday course competition winner

African Conservation Experience celebrate ten years of conservation!

2009-2010 celebrates ten years of African Conservation Experience (ACE) volunteers working to conserve the fragile ecosystems and wildlife of our home, southern Africa.

ACE celebrated its 10th birthday and offered a free Game Ranger Guide Course during its birthday year.

Lucky winner Emma-Louise Cooper, from the UK, will join ACE’s Game Ranger Guide Course in 2010!

I am very excited at the prospect of going to South Africa in April and winning the competition has been the icing on the cake as I have been working very hard to enable me to go.

I am taking a year out before going to Nottingham Trent University in the autumn where I am going to study Zoology which I hope will help me find a job working in conservation which is one of my main interests. The Game Ranger course that I have won will help me decide in which direction to go when I have finished University.

We are delighted to offer Emma-Louise this opportunity and excited that she can take these skills forward to a career in conservation.
