Orla McEvoy is a PhD student at Rhodes University, Grahamstown. Supervised by Drs. Dan Parker and Sam Ferreira, she has traveled around South Africa meeting with many LiMF members to improve our understanding of the consequences of keeping lions in smaller areas. An abstract outlining Orla’s project can be found here. LiMF is proud to be supporting Orla on her journey.
Dr Susan Miller completed her DTech at Tshwane University of Technology with the assistance of LiMF members. Without their support she would not have had the data and samples she needed to complete her project. Susan assisted LiMF with their first publication and also published four research articles on growth rates and genetics of managed wild lion populations in South Africa. You can find them all on our Publications page.
