RESEARCH INTEREST

No

Research area

Detail explanation

1

Wildlife

Ethiopia is rich in wildlife resources with high endemism. I am highly interest to contribute my own role in the conservation and sustainable utilization of these resources. Hence conducting a research and determine the way forward is my priority.

2

Ecology

Protected areas in Ethiopia are facing anthropogenic effect at alarming rate. These protected areas are refuges for wild animals. Therefore, I am interested to investigate the root causes, and maintain the ecology of wild animals.

3

Ecotourism

Natural and cultural ecotourism resources of Ethiopia are highly diversified. But, the local communities are not benefited as to the expected level. So I am so interested to benefit local people through community based ecotourism project development and other related tools.
