Start typing, then use the up and down arrows to select an option from the list. Ambassadors can either be global celebrities who have expressed a desire to contribute to raising awareness of migratory species and the work of the Convention, or prominent individuals from conservation, science, literature, or other fields who can mobilize attention for specific issues or species. Each of the Ambassadors will be associated with a different type of protected species: terrestrial they run , avian they fly , or aquatic they swim. British biologist Ian Redmond is widely respected for his work with great apes and elephants and has served as Ambassador for the Convention on Migratory Species since He has led anti-poaching patrols, guided film crews into close encounters with gorillas, chimpanzees, orangutans, and elephants, and worked to support local conservationists during civil wars in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Redmond will represent terrestrial species for CMS.

Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals - Wikipedia
The third competition was launched on July with the closing date for applications set at 15 April Sixty-one entries were received from twenty-five different countries. The jury met on 20th September and chose Dr Lucy King's thesis on "the interaction between the African elephant and the African honey bee and its potential application as an elephant deterrent" as the winner. Farmers living next to wildlife reserves and national parks rarely benefit from the revenue generated by tourists to the parks and are often left on their own to cope with wildlife straying onto their land, damaging crops and property. Her published findings in top scientific journals reveal that not only do elephants run away from disturbed bees but when doing so they head shake, dust themselves, and emit a unique low frequency rumble that warns other elephants in the area to retreat. The vision behind the beehive fences is to enable farmers to live successfully with their elephant neighbours and to engage even the poorest farmers in self-managed deterrent systems that do not rely on rangers or researchers to maintain. Beehive fences have now been included in the Action Points of the new Conservation and Management Strategy for the Elephant in Kenya and there is every chance that it can become a significant contribution to the toolbox of human-elephant conflict mitigation methods for managing free-ranging elephant populations in the country.

However, for all these interesting visualisations you need to have Google Earth installed on your computer. These cooperative efforts go back to Declan Butler, a reporter at Nature who covers avian influenza. Finally 8 laureates were selected and their theses were presented to the Jury.
