Dr. Wendy Rowe, Program Head for the Master of Arts in Global Leadership has recently returned from Kenya where she provided action research training and support to International Union of Conservation of Nature on a community engagement project with Maasai communities to prevent illegal wildlife trafficking. Action research enables Maasai community leaders to work collaboratively with Kenyan government, conservation INGOs and other community based organizations to implement strategies that include economic incentives, law enforcement and surveillance, reduction of human wildlife conflict and creation of alternative livelihoods.
