Deer do well, misery for meerkats, the effects of climate change appear surprisingly varied… and widespread.
Globally there are nearly 240,000 protected areas, yet we have a growing number of endangered species. This conundrum troubles leading conservation ecologist, Professor Graham Kerley. Maxcine Kater reports.
A study reported by the BBC earlier this year found that of the 100 most cited climate research papers over the past five years, fewer than 1% of the authors were based in Africa, and of the total 1 300 scientists involved, 90% were affiliated with academic institutions from North America, Europe or Australia.
It’s high time we embrace innovative tech solutions that Africa’s youth are developing to promote conservation.
