CCF Kenya: Volunteers in the Field
Four volunteers participated in the Kenya project in 2002. Seattle (Washington State, USA) Chapter Head Susanne Garrison assisted in the set-up of facilities. Meredith Evans, a Master's student from the University of Florida, collected data for 7 months. Her thesis evaluates the changes of vegetation and prey base that support cheetah in the Central Rift Valley (Nakuru/Naivasha Districts). Her knowledge of mapping and previous experiences in Africa have been of great value.
Gabrielle Saveri (USA/Italy) worked with us for 5 weeks, assisting with all aspects of research and helped Meredith collect game and vegetation data. Gabrielle's background in journalism was put to use in assisting with the writing of web page materials and grants. David Mills worked with us for 3 months, assisting with game counts, data entry, and education program development.
While volunteers to CCF Kenya are being accepted on an individual basis, students wishing to conduct their own research are given priority. Projects that support CCF's mission and aid in the understanding of wildlife/domestic stock issues are most welcome.
