On this week's episode, Greg and Bob are joined by Abby Guthmann. Abby is a Ph D. student at the University of Minnesota and a member of the Lion Center Team under Dr. Craig Parker. Abby discusses the fascinating conservation work she does near the Maasai Mara in Kenya and the pivotal role the travel experience has played in her life studying ecosystems, behavior adaptation, and human-wildlife conflict mitigation. Abby hopes to contribute to the conservation of vulnerable populations in increasingly altered landscapes.
Her current research focuses on how cattle management strategies may affect ecosystem health and human-wildlife conflict mitigation in conservancies surrounding the Maasai Mara.
