Our Fellow Mr. Regan Sapkota participated a residential training on Statistics for Ecology and Conservation Biology at Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation from March 9-20, 2020 in Smithsonian Institute, VA, USA.
The two weeks training was focused on providing hands-on knowledge on the use of data analytical tool “R programming”. The overall package of training was centralized to solve the question related to the effective analysis of the data related to ecological research, conservation science, and other issues.
After the participation in the training, Mr. Sapkota shared that his knowledge on the statistics has been enhanced and he now believes he can do some justice to the data by planning research effectively and using R. He further added many of his colleagues are facing similar kind of problem that he was facing before attending this course and is planning to transfer this knowledge acquired by organizing a short crash course on R programming.
Mr. Sapkota’s participation was possible with the generous support of the Conservation Leadership Programme, Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation and British Ecological Society.
