About

This program is aimed at helping students gain an understanding of the complex relationship between Kenya’s indigenous communities, land, water and wildlife. It studies both the modern challenges and solutions that can help preserve some of the world’s most diverse ecosystems. As Kenya’s human population grows at an ever increasing rate, improved land management, payments for Ecosystems Services, and control of human-wildlife conflict are all required to stem the loss of biodiversity and the habitats that sustain it. This program will provide students with an understanding of historical and current threats to biodiversity in East Africa, expose participants to regenerative practices, and equip participants with field-based skills to observe and apply practical solutions to the needs of specific target groups.

At the end of the 4-week course, students will be equipped with:


  • A basic knowledge of historical and current threats to African forest, wetland, and savannah ecosystems


  • Field-based ecological data collection skills


  • An understanding of human-wildlife relationships in East Africa


  • An understanding of Afrotropical forest, wetland, and savannah ecology


  • An understanding of community-based conservation, incentivizing conservation, and restoring damaged ecosystems
