We wish to thank for
their invaluable help:
Alayne Cotterill has worked in wildlife conservation in Africa since 1991. Her primary area of interest is improving human-carnivore coexistence where large carnivores share the landscape with people and livestock. Alayne’s recent PhD research (2009-2013) with Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit looked at the effects of human-caused mortality on lion behavioural ecology and demography.
Max Graham holds an MPhil and PhD from the University of Cambridge and recently completed a UK Darwin Initiative funded project with the University of Cambridge on which he was the principal investigator. He is currently the director of the Laikipia Elephant Project and is developing the first ever wildlife conservation strategy for an unprotected landscape in Kenya for the Kenya Wildlife Service and Laikipia Wildlife Forum.
Shirley Strum received her doctorate in anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley. A biological anthropologist specializing in primate studies, conservation, and science studies, Strum has studied one population of baboons in Kenya for 38 years. Her conservation interests include environmental ethics, cultural issues involved in modern conservation and evolution of social complexity.
David Western is an Adjunct Professor at the University of California, San Diego. He is also the chairman of the African Conservation Centre, Nairobi. He began research into savannas ecosystems at Amboseli in 1967, looking at the interactions of humans and wildlife. His work, unbroken since then, has served as a barometer of changes in the savannas and test of conservation solutions based on the continued coexistence of people and wildlife.
