Wellard here again. In my last post I wrote about my first visit back to the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo in my capacity as Enterprise Officer for the IGCP Congo Program after the long civil conflict there. Today I want to share with you a more celebratory and team-oriented reflection from our Rwanda Program:
"Hi, Erin! I recently donated to AWF and would like to know if there any benefits that come with my donation." --Chris, Albuquerque, NM, U.S.A.
First, thank you Chris for your generous support of AWF. You are officially now an AWF member! Everyone who donates $15 or more automatically becomes a member.
I’m pleased to note that the Tarangire Lion project has some additional help this summer--Rae Wynn-Grant, a master’s candidate at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Here she tells about her experiences in the field so far.
I would like to introduce you to Nnzumbeni Tshikalange who is running the Limpopo Leopard Project for the next few months. Nnzumbeni hails from the Limpopo Province near Thohoyandou, the capital city of the former Venda. She obtained her bachelor degree in Zoology from the University of Limpopo.
