    About This Project

    Grevy’s zebra are one of Africa’s most threatened large mammals. My project focuses on the largest extant Grevy's populations in Kenya, where animals face increasing environmental stress. The project goals are to understand how genetic diversity and environmental stress combine to affect disease risk. Results will inform efforts of Kenyan wildlife officials to mitigate the risk of disease, which they have identified as a major threat to the species' survival.
