Save the date: Pathways Kenya, 2016

10th – 13th of January 2016, at Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, Nanyuki, Kenya

Pathways is a conference and training program designed to address the myriad issues that arise as people and wildlife struggle to coexist in a sustainable and healthy manner. We invite you to join us in this critical wildlife conservation effort. Our mission is to increase professionalism and effectiveness in the human dimensions of fisheries and wildlife management field.

Theme: Conflict and Co-existence

Conference Track: This conference intends to set the precedent for future research, innovation, and collaboration and also to further the application of research in the field of human dimensions of fish and wildlife management in Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond. After many requests, we are bringing Pathways to Africa where so many innovative and interesting wildlife management projects are based. Pathways Kenya will feature visionary wildlife managers, leaders in conservation policy, and the students and academics that are forging new frontiers.

Training Track: Pathways Kenya will include a full concurrent training track targeting early and mid-career professionals for whom capacity building is needed. This will provide a unique and valuable opportunity for African students and practitioners to expand their toolboxes, exchange ideas, and build their human dimensions skills. Training participants will attend sessions focused on collaborative conservation, education, interpretation, communication, and more. They will also join conference participants to attend keynote lectures and the community-building socials that make Pathways special.
