Fossey Fund staff attends the International Congress for Conservation Biology

In total, our teams presented 16 scientific studies, work that was done with 15 collaborators from 11 national and international institutions.

One of the attendees, Karisoke research assistant Jean Claude Twahirwa, said this was “my first opportunity to attend an international conservation conference, and I was able to share with the world our preliminary findings on our large mammal research and to gather ideas from other experts that will help us in writing this paper. I met with other scientists who work on large mammals, and I learned about the advanced methods they are using, like examining DNA to understand the demography and distribution of large mammals. More importantly, I gained skills in presentation and communication.”
