Myth: African Wildlife Conservation (W/ Dr. Aby L. Sène) Pt. 2 The Black Myths Podcast

    • Society & Culture

In part 2, we discuss the deeper mechanisms of how African Wildlife Conservation operates in Africa including the ecological factors. We dig into the neo-colonist components of how indigenous rights are co-opted to pit Africans against each other. We also discuss the necessary means to empower indigenous Africans to struggle to regain their land. 
Dr. Aby Sène-Harper is a faculty of Parks and Conservation Area Management. She is a trained interdisciplinary environmental social researcher whose work advances socially and ecologically just approaches to managing public lands, natural and cultural resources in the US and in Africa. Her research lies at the intersections of parks and protected area governance, livelihoods, nature-based tourism, and Race and nature.
