– Kenya –
Resson Kantai Duff is the Deputy Director of Ewaso Lions, an organisation dedicated to promoting coexistence between people and lions in northern Kenya. She also serves on the board of the Conservation Alliance of Kenya. She graduated with a Masters in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management from the University of Oxford, and an undergraduate Honours degree in Zoology from the University of Nairobi. She now applies her passion for community conservation to facilitating the work of a community based organization through strategy development, programme management, operations, and fundraising. Her work has grown to revolve around deconstructing the prevalent narrative of conservation which has put humans against natural resources. She engages conservation practitioners and the wider public in unpacking and decolonising conservation, giving Kenyans back a sense of ownership over their wildlife, culture and land.
