Patrick Boundja
Patrick first joined Conservation world in 1999 as a research assistant for the WCS Ndoki Elephant Project upon his graduation with an Engineer Diploma in Forestry from the University of Brazzaville. Studying forest elephant and great apes in Northern Congo helped Patrick develop his understanding of the Congo’s rich-biodiversity, wildlife-habitats relationships, and his skills as well as built his interest in pursuing a conservation career. He graduated with a Masters in Conservation Biology from the University of Cape Town, South Africa in 2007. As WCS Congo GIS, Ecological and Law Enforcement Monitoring and data management Technical Assistant Between 2007 and 2008, Patrick worked with experts from the US Forest Service and representatives from the CNIAF (Centre National des Inventaires et Aménagements Forestiers du Congo) to develop a country-wide Geodatabase and Access data base for line transect surveys. Since August 2012, Patrick has started his PhD in Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA. Patrick’s PhD research is focused on elephant conservation and sustainable fisheries in Northern Congo and the Sangha Tri-National landscape
