Gabriel Jamie had an excellent visit to our collaborators Dr Moses Chibesa, Dr Ngawo Namukonde and Stanford Siachoono at Copperbelt University in Kitwe. Gabriel met with researchers and students in the Department of Zoology and Aquatic Sciences in the School of Natural Resources to discuss future collaborations and training workshops. Gabriel also gave a seminar on the current research being conducted by our group in the Choma area. Thank you to the Copperbelt team for their hospitality and all the stimulating discussion.
