2019 African Graduate Student Research Fund Award - Daniel Konzin

Daniel Konzin is working towards a master's degree in Wildlife Management at the University of Cape Coast (Ghana) on the ecology of pangolins in Assin Attandanso Resource Reserve (AARR) of the Kakum Conservation Area (KCA). Specifically, he is investigating resource partitioning between Phataginus tricuspis and P. tetradactyla and the nutritional composition of their respective prey items. Daniel will use funds from his award to pay for travel to and from his field sites and to purchase equipment. Results from his work will provide insight into the foraging behavior of pangolins in the wild and will better inform management of pangolins in captive settings.
