This project supports in-country EDGE Fellows to help conserve relevant EDGE species
This project aims to use remotely-sensed imagery to disentangle if and the extent to which overgrazing versus elephant declines have contributed to long-term range degradation through tree encroachment throughout Ijara and Fafi Districts. In addition, habitat selection and demographic field studies of hirola within the Ishaqbini Community Conservancy, overseen by the Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT), are being conducted. Through my work, informed management recommendations will be made to Hirola Management Committee (HMC) and Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS).
The graceful hirola is Africa's most threatened antelope.
His main interest focusses on mammalian ecology, conservation biology and rangeland management.
