Dr. Lucy Kemp
2023 Fellow, South Africa
Lucy is the Project Manager for the Mabula Ground-hornbill Project and the Africa Chair for the IUCN SSC Hornbill Specialist Group. In addition, she facilitates the IUCN SSC Conservation Planning Specialist Group.
She loves supporting young conservation biologists, working with rural communities to co-develop science-based conservation tools, and ensuring that communities are part of conservation planning processes from the beginning rather than an action item to be included later. She and her team work to ensure a multi-disciplinary approach for ground hornbills in particular and African hornbills in general.
