Francis Kago works for the African Conservation Centre as a Research Assistant under the Development Corridors Partnership (DCP) Project. He is currently studying for an MA in Environmental Planning and Management at The University of Nairobi, and holds a BSc in Wildlife Management from University of Eldoret. Previously, he has worked as a Research Consultant at the Mount Kenya Trust in 2017, as Research Assistant at Save The Elephants (STE, Samburu), WWF-Lake Naivasha Basin Programme in 2016 and Kenya Wildlife Service, among others.
His lived experiences have informed his interest in conservation, as he was born and raised near Lake Nakuru National Park, which is a critical ecosystem that is protected for its flagship species. It is this personal experience that drove him to study Wildlife Management and later on work within the conservation sector in Kenya. He aspires to teach people about natural resources, wildlife, habitats, communities, developments, and their interactions.
