Join special guest, Dr. Kathleen Alexander PhD, DVM  Associate Professor in the  Department of Fisheries and Wildlife Conservation, Virginia Tech and CARACAL Biodiversity Center, Botswana. Dr. Alexander's research work has focused on the intersection between public health and biodiversity looking at linkages between sustainable livelihoods and health of the ecosystems on which we depend. She  has been selected as one of three, African regional experts by World Health Organization and the Convention on Biological Diversity secretariat to participate in a regional workshop in Mozambique to present to national health and biodiversity experts from various African countries on integrating health and biodiversity into policy and planning. The objective is to "contribute to the implementation of the Convention on the Biological Diversity in the WHO African Region, by providing a forum to national health and environment/biodiversity experts from African Parties to the CBD on actions to be taken in their respective countries".  We will discuss the complexities and importance of biodiversity conservation and the need to incorporate broader vision into dialogue and practical applications.  LINKS: http://fishwild.vt.edu/faculty/alexander.htm  www.Facebook.com/caracalbotswana, www.caracal.info, www.blogspot.healthbotswana.com

  1. I'm really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

  2. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
