I would like say how excited I am that my colleagues Dr. Bernard Kissui (Lions: Lions of Tarangire — www.awf.org/lionblog) and Dr. Paul Muoria (Grevy’s zebra: Guarding Grevy’s Zebras — www.awf.org/zebrablog) have started blogging about their work.
During August in 2008 I had an opportunity visit their project sites in Tanzania and Kenya respectively and saw firsthand what wonderful work they are doing. They both have immense experience in their respective fields; I must say I have learned a lot from them during my visit. I am also secretly looking up to them, to get where they are in terms of applied research.
Nakedi joined AWF in 2007, working in the Limpopo region, where he's from. Nakedi's initial work was focused on studying the great cats to shape conservation strategies to benefit communities he's known all his life. In 2014, Nakedi moved on from the Limpopo region, becoming AWF’s Congo landscape ecologist.
