ACE PhD student, Kris Evaratt, has been awarded the 2019 William T. Hornaday Award by the American Society of Mammalogists. The Award recognizes students who have made a significant contribution to the conservation of mammals and their habitats, and in Kris’s case the award reflects both his publication record and his active engagement in and promotion of conservation-based policy. Kris is doing his PhD on lions and their relationships with people in the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, which includes areas of South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. He is pictured here with a collared lion. The award includes travel costs to the 2019 annual meeting of the American Society of Mammalogists where Kris will present an invited plenary talk on his research. This is a major honour.
