July 13, 2015

Malenoh Ndimbe, a Cameroonian alumnus of the Recanati-Kaplan Postgraduate Diploma in International Wildlife Conservation Practice, recently returned to WildCRU as a sponsored intern to attend the annual Cambridge Student Conference on Conservation Science. Her presentation and research report secured the prize given to the top three interns. During her internship and under the supervision of Dr. Christos Astaras, Malenoh continued her work on the feeding ecology of the endangered drill monkey (Mandrillus leucophaeus) in the Ebo and Korup forests of Cameroon. She has been personally involved in the collection of part of the data in Cameroon, and began her analysis as an independent project during her diploma studies in 2013. Malenoh was also recently awarded a grant by the British Ecological Society to carry out a population and behavioural study of gorillas in the Ebo forest, Cameroon, using camera trap survey techniques.
