Episode Six:

Courage, Conservation, and Dr. Caroline Ng’weno

In this episode, we take you to Kenya’s Maasai Mara where Earthwatch scientist Dr. Caroline Ng’weno is studying the interactions between predators, their prey, and livestock. In pursuit of her scientific endeavors, Caroline faced many hurdles, both professional and personal. But despite this she persevered. She shares her experience as a female in a male-dominated field, and how she was able to get to where she is today, thanks in part to support from Earthwatch. To learn more about Caroline’s research, visit our website: Lions and Their Prey in Kenya’s Maasai Mara. (The music in this trailer is “Partly Sage” by Blue Dot Sessions, provided under the Attribution-Noncommercial License.)


Earthwatch depends on donations—above and beyond what we raise from volunteers who participate on our expeditions—in order to deliver our global conservation mission. In fact, volunteer contributions provide only half of the total resources Earthwatch needs to sustain over 40 field research expeditions, a wide variety of educational programs, corporate sustainability trainings, and more each year.
