Kunene Conservation Research offers readers a window into an ongoing field-based research project on human-lion interactions in the Kunene region of northwest Namibia. Readers unfamiliar with this region may want to begin by reading through the about and history portions of the site, which give useful context. This resource documents the research of John Heydinger, a PhD candidate at the University of Minnesota and Macquarie University, who studies "historical and contemporary issues in rural development and wildlife conservation." Launched in June 2017 and regularly updated, readers will find an array of updates on Heydinger's research, such as reports on site visits, stakeholder meetings, and workshops, as well as photographs and occasional local news articles relevant to this project. This research is being conducted in partnership with Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation (a Namibian NGO) and the University of Minnesota Lion Center, with support from the Big History Institute at Macquarie University.
