    Badru Mugerwa

    Biodiversity, conservation and ecology

    Profile

    Badru is a PhD candidate at the University of Western Ontario (Canada) and Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) of the University of Oxford (UK). Badru holds a PGD in international wildlife conservation practice from the University of Oxford, MSc. Biology from Mbarara University of Science and Technology, and BSc. Forestry from Makerere University.

    Badru’s research focuses on understanding and finding solutions to human and environmental threats to biodiversity. His specific research interests lie in understanding the interactions between human activity and wildlife in human dominated landscapes, and how this knowledge informs wildlife conservation. Badru is currently conducting the first ever-global experimental investigation of the threat illegal hunting poses to wildlife in tropical forests. Badru’s specific skills, knowledge and experiance include; training, fundraising, GIS and statistical modelling and biodiversity surveys.

    Badru’s eight-year career in biodiversity and conservation research provides a proven record of leadership in launching novel projects, winning critical funding and conducting cutting-edge scientific research that incorporates training, supervision and community participation. He led the establishment of, and he is the principal researcher responsible for, the Tropical Ecology Assessment and Monitoring (TEAM) network (www.teamnetwork.org) program in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Bwindi). TEAM is a global network of 17 field sites located in 15 countries that monitor wildlife to provide an early warning system for tropical biodiversity loss. He has selected and trained a total of 10 field assistants, three volunteers and two UWA rangers to work on the TEAM program since its inception in Bwindi. He has co-supervised two BSc forestry students and an MSc biology student. The data he and his team have generated has contributed significantly to six publications, two MSc dissertations, a book chapter, and the TEAM’s Wildlife Picture Index (WPI; http://wpi.teamnetwork.org). He is the first author on four of these publications, an MSc dissertation, and am co-author on the book chapter. Because of his success with TEAM, he was selected to star in a series of videos disseminating TEAM’s work (Badru’s story, http://www.teamnetwork.org/stories).

    His success with TEAM’s research in Bwindi led Conservation International, Wildlife Conservation Society and the International Gorilla Conservation Program (IGCP) to invite him to advise on the establishment of TEAM’s new site in the Virunga massif (spanning the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda). Moreover, because of his experience in conducting biodiversity surveys, he is frequently asked to provide advice and training in census and survey methods. Notably, he was invited to assist in the designing of the field data collection protocols for surveying large mammals, illegal activity and vegetation description for the 2015 mountain gorilla census in the Virunga massif. He has trained diploma students of the Kitabi College of Conservation and Environmental Management (KCCEM) in Rwanda on biodiversity and assessment techniques.

    Badru’s research interests are centered on human-wildlife interactions. In 2013, he was awarded funding as a sole Principal Investigator that allowed him to implement a new research project he termed the “Bwindi Caracal aurata Project”. This project addresses human-carnivore conflict around Bwindi, and the ecology and conservation of Bwindi’s carnivores. He has recruited and trained five field assistants and a volunteer for this project. The Uganda Wildlife Authority and public will use his results to mitigate poultry and livestock losses and mitigate the retaliatory killing of carnivores. He has also designed camera trap protocols for surveying large mammals in Echuya Forest Reserve.

    Utilizing a research prize awarded to him by the University of Oxford’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (www.wildcru.org), he initiated and led the innovative globally unique experimental test of the threat human disturbance (poaching and human presence) poses to Bwindi wildlife. For his PhD, he is building on his success leading this study with the recognition he has achieved as a program manager within the TEAM network to conduct the first ever global experimental test of the threats poaching poses to tropical biodiversity at sites in 10 protected areas around the world.
