Maria Hall '12 to publish work in Swara

Maria Hall spent her summer in Kenya taking courses on wildlife conservation through SLU's Center for International and Intercultural Education. For her course "Conservation and the Media" Maria wrote a piece about the history of the relationship between humans and vultures, how vultures have been worshipped, feared, and exploited over time, and the current problem with vultures being indirectly killed as a result of Kenyan farmers lacing carcasses with poison to kill predators. Her work will be published in the end of year edition of Swara, the magazine of the East African Wildlife Society.
