This January Jeff Skibins and Ryan Sharp, assistant professors of Park Management & Conservation will be traveling throughout Kenya in conjunction with the Human Dimensions of Wildlife conference (https://sites.warnercnr.colostate.edu/pathways/
). The PMC program is an official sponsor of the event and Dr. Skibins is serving on the advisory council. Both Skibins and Sharp will be presenting research papers at the conference. Additionally, Skibins and Sharp will be meeting with several community conservation program leaders, including the Il Ngwesi EcoLogde (http://ilngwesi.com
) and the Melako Conservancy program (http://www.nrt-kenya.org/melako/
). Developing these networks will provide opportunities to graduate and undergraduate students for research, travel courses, and exchange programs.
