vEco’s globetrotting ambassador, Ian Redmond (pictured on the right), met up with two of vEco’s most dedicated collaborators this past weekend: Jackson Efitre (center, Lecturer at the Department of Biological Sciences, Makerere University) and Mark Olokotum (left, M.Sc. student at Makerere University and Research Assistant with NaFIRRI-Jinja). The trio then met up with The Gorilla Organization’s Jillian Miller (Director) and Joyce Kigozi (Uganda Operations Manager) and other staff of the Organization from Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo to discuss great ape conservation and to show off vEco’s progress and future directions.
