UC Faculty & Staff… Going Global

Faculty Spotlight

Tracking Gorillas in the rainforests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is all in a day’s work for Dr. Richard A. Beck (Geography). What? Geography? Yep, an expert on remote sensing, Dr. Beck is training DRC park rangers how to use geographic information systems (GIS) in order to monitor the health of forests and endangered species in their national parks. With his Fulbright Award he is collaborating with the Congolese Institute for Conservation and Nature. This award provides the training and the needed tools. But perhaps most important, it is designed for growth and sustainability. Those who have benefitted by Dr. Beck’s instruction, will go on to teach others.
