The Ecology/Research Section is an essential component of the SNTC, as it provides technical advice to the Parks Management Section in particular, and to all other bodies involved with conservation. Protected area management cannot achieve its objectives without the backing of this section. It is perhaps important to note that this section's work programme is primarily geared towards conservation area management, and not research activities of a more academic nature.
