A day in WildCRU – Viva Edition

May 10, 2023

Viva’s are a momentous occasion at WildCRU.

It’s a great accomplishment when a thesis published advances a science, but even more remarkable when the data is already in use for policy implementations. Last week we celebrated a successful Viva of Luca Chiaverini who’s thesis is a culmination of 10-years worth of camera-trapping data in Southeast Asia. His colleagues got together to celebrate this day in a momentous way.

Congratulations Luca.
