UVic / Kesho Trust Field School 2020 – Rescheduled to 2021

DSC_0001Unfortunately our planned 2020 edition of the UVic / Kesho Trust Tanzania field school has had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation. We are hopeful that circumstances will allow us to run the next field school during the same time period next year – August, 2021.  We appreciate the support of our field site partners, the Enduimet WMA adjacent to Mt. Kilimanjaro and the Enguserosambu Forest Trust, who were prepared to host us.  We hope they will continue to support our plans for the proposed field school next year.

The situation with COVID-19 adds a very important dimension to our field school program.  The impacts of such global events on conservation and livelihoods in Tanzania is huge and as changes in the world reflect the events of 2020 we will certainly be able to explore their implications for both developing countries and the world as a whole.  An article in IUCN’s journal Parks reviews the current situation of theCOVID-19 and conservation.
