Emmanuel Amoah


Emmanuel has completed his MPhil at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Ghana, which incorporates his work on slender-snouted crocodiles. Emmanuel and his team are currently in the process of developing a national crocodile database for Ghana, and are in talks with the government in the hope of developing a Crocodile Conservation Action Plan (CCAP) for the country.

Emmanuel hopes to realise his ambition of contributing to the protection of nature for future generations through his Segré-EDGE Fellowship, and is very passionate about helping local communities come together to conserve crocodiles in Ghana.

EDGE Project

This Segré-EDGE Fellowship project will focus on identifying and conserving the last remaining key habitats for this species in Ghana. To achieve this, Emmanuel’s project will:

  • Lead the development of the conservation strategy Survival Blueprint along with local stakeholders;
  • Build capacity amongst local students for implementing conservation activities and monitoring crocodiles;
  • Engage local communities through outreach highlighting the importance of this species, identifying ways to change behaviours such as hunting (deliberate and accidental bycatch) and implementing sustainable fishing practices.
