Biography

I am a conservation scientist and behavioural ecologist primarily interested in the ecology, evolution and conservation of ungulates, particularly with regard to captive breeding and reintroductions. I have been working on endangered ungulates in Saudi Arabia, China and East Africa for more than 20 years resulting in more than 100 publications. Particularly my work on Arabian gazelles at King Khalid Wildlife Research Centre in Saudi Arabia has strengthened my scientific output and the conservation of Arabian wildlife. Previously, I have managed several research projects on the biogeography and ecology of terrestrial gastropods in the Albertine Rift Valley (East Africa) and on Bioko Island in Equatorial Guinea. Moreover, I was responsible for off-shore monitoring of harbour porpoises in the North Sea and I have worked in the Waddenzee National Park in Germany to improve public conservation awareness and induce environmentally friendly behaviour changes. More recently, my interest has turned to wildlife outside protected areas and to the sustainable utilisation of wildlife resources. An ongoing research and development project focuses on the degradation of rangelands in the Akagera ecosystem of Rwanda to reduce illegal hunting, to improve local pastoralist’s livelihoods and to prevent cross-infection with gastro-intestinal parasites between wildlife and domestic livestock. This relatively unexplored research topic leads to the question of what wildlife species persist in, or vanish from our modern mega-cities, and how does that relate to changes in their breeding, foraging and agonistic behaviour.
