About Gloria Sumay
Gloria is a master’s student in the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology, CSU, working with Dr. Gillian Bowser. Her project addresses the cross-cultural perspectives of local communities neighboring national parks on migratory animals and park management. Gloria will work with three villages to the east of Tarangire National Park, Tanzania, where there is a long history of conflict between the Park and local communities. She will use household interviews, Photovoice, and GIS to identify and locate conflicts. Through her fellowship she will produce maps and will hold meetings between communities and Park management.
