Fleur is a PhD researcher working with Fauna and Flora International (FFI) on a Knowledge Exchange Studentship. The idea for the research was created by both FFI and the University of Cambridge, with the aim of creating new ways researchers and practitioners can work together in conservation. The research is focused around how different groups of people participate and work together in conservation; how FFI works with a local partner on the ground, how a local organisations works with farmers and pastoralists around a conservation areas, and, how researchers and practitioners can work together. The research has been based in Cambridge and then largely out in Kenya where Fleur spent eight months working with Ol Pejeta Conservancy (OPC) and FFI in the Laikipia county.
