The Grevy’s Zebra Project
Under the guidance of Daniel Rubenstein, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, I spent the majority of my internship in Kenya in Wamba, at an Earthwatch research center. During that time I conducted research on the Grevy Zebra which is an endangered species. Fewer than 2500 remain. As part of this research I walked line transects and conducted total counts from a vehicle on the Grevy’s Zebra population in the area (animals considered competitors for food were also counted). I was also in charge of entering project data and for maintaining camp equipment.
