We have the pleasure to announce that Girma, from the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme, successfully defended his thesis at Leiden University on Tuesday 6th of September.

Girma’s  research is part of an innovative collaboration between the prestigious Dutch university and the WildCRU. In his thesis he studies the ecology of Ethiopian wolves, assesses conflicts with people living alongside them, and suggests solutions.

Girma is now our Project Leader in the Borena Sayint National Park, applying his knowledge and skills to help protect the natural resources on which many endemic wildlife, and millions of Ethiopians, depends on.

Congratulations Girma!!!
