Still active?[edit source]

Is this project still active? Apart from a collection of external links and almost advertising-like descriptions of some companies, I find almost nothing on these Wikiversity pages that increases my knowledge in conservation entrepreneurship. Thus, do these pages really fill any function now? Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 08:09, 24 December 2016 (UTC)
