Wildlife Works Rangers Recruitment Day 2 at Marapu Borehole, 6 November 2010


The recruitment day at Marapu was to allow the communities of Sagalla Hill lower such as Zomngwani, Raghasi, Marapau Talio B, Teri B to participate in the recruitment process. These are new community areas from Phase II, and are not yet being employed by Wildlife Works Carbon. It was very important to involve them.
