MoU signed with Copperbelt University

Apr 10, 2015

Exciting news for us is that our Memorandum of Understanding between Copperbelt University (in Kitwe, Zambia), the University of Cambridge (UK) and the University of Cape Town (South Africa) was signed by our respective heads of department. This MoU sets out our commitment to continue the very positive communication and cooperation that has developed between our research team and Copperbelt University’s Department of Zoology and Aquatic Science, headed by Dr Lackson Chama, an ecologist, ornithologist and good friend of our project.
