Finding Symmetry: A short documentary on human-wildlife conflicts and conservation issues among the Maasai people in Southwestern Kenya. Increasing human populations and changing land uses are causing stress on East African wildlife. Simultaneously, local communities need resources and income to survive. Direct competition between wildlife and human populations is increasing. With development, tourism, and wildlife conflicts, the lifestyle of Maasai people is changing. Can we find a symmetry where both sides can live equally? 

You are cordially invited to see the showing of senior Katie Oram's short film Finding Symmetry which is one of the outcomes of Katie's senior-year research project in Conservation Biology/African Studies.  The screening will last about 30 minutes - 10 minutes for an introduction by Katie followed by the 20 minute film.
