Bingkun

姜丙坤在20187月作为科研助理加入李彬彬教授的团队,目前负责四川等地大熊猫保护区的放牧威胁调查项目。

姜丙坤本科动物科学专业,硕士阶段就读于中科院动物研究所,专业方向为动物生态学和生物多样性保护。本科阶段所了解到的工厂化养殖等知识使得他在看待涉及到人类利益的动物保护和动物福利等问题时更加客观辩证。他之前的研究工作主要集中在东北地区哺乳动物的多样性丧失问题。目前中国的生物多样性正面临着各种各样的威胁,希望IMEP实验室的工作能对此做出一些改变。在将来,丙坤希望自己可以继续从事多样性保护相关工作。

Bingkun joined the iMEP conservation lab in July 2018 as Pro. Binbin Li’s research assistant. At present, He is responsible for the project of grazing threat of panda habitats in Sichuan.

His undergraduate major is Animal Science, and then ot his master degree in animal ecology and biodiversity protection from IOZ, CAS. What he learned about the livestock industry in college makes him more dialectical when it comes to animal protection and animal welfare. His previous research focused on mammals and biodiversity loss in northeast China. At present, China’s biodiversity is facing a variety of threats, hope our iMEP lab can make a little difference about it. He wishes to be able to do practical work on diversity protection in the future.

欧凯莉  |  环境政策硕士二年级

Kelley REARDON  |  Second year iMEP student

KR

Kelley在Stonehill College 获得了环境科学学士学位并辅修了中国语言和文化。Kelley以前曾在一家私人咨询公司担任环境科学家,还曾作为美国志愿队成员在缅因环境保护署工作两年。

今年夏天,Kelley与印度野生动物研究中心合作,独立负责一个中印合作研究项目作为她的硕士课题。该项目的重点是围绕保护区 (PAs) 的农村社区,这些地区是关键物种的栖息地,如孟加拉虎 (P. tigris) 和大熊猫 (A. melanoleuca) 。项目的最终目标是发展以社区为基础的保护计划, 减少围绕保护区的人兽冲突。

毕业后,Kelley希望可以继续开展有关项目,促进生物多样性保护,设计并实施社区保护计划。她还希望利用她在写作、摄影和电影方面的浓厚兴趣向公众分享保护故事,团结公众的力量,支持全球环境问题的创新解决方案。

Kelley received a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and a minor in Chinese Language and Culture from Stonehill College. Kelley previously worked as an environmental scientist for a private consulting company. She also served as an AmeriCorps member in the Maine Conservation Corps program at the Maine Department of Environmental Protection for two years.

This summer, Kelley led an independent research project in rural India and China in collaboration with an NGO called The Centre for Wildlife Studies- India. The project focuses on rural communities surrounding protected areas (PAs) that are habitats for flagship species such as the Bengal tiger (P. tigris) and giant panda (A. melanoleuca). Kelley plans to use this data in her master’s project with the ultimate goal of developing community-based conservation programs that will reduce conflict surrounding PAs.

After graduating, Kelley is passionate about continuing to pioneer projects that promote biodiversity protection by empowering communities to design and implement conservation programs. She would also like to utilize her strong interests in writing, photography, and film to share stories that unite the public in supporting innovative solutions to environmental problems around the world.

刘翠  |  环境政策硕士二年级

Cui (Janet) LIU  |  Second year iMEP student

 Cui

刘翠毕业于大连理工大学环境工程专业。本科学习让她意识到复杂的环境问题需要跨学科领域的知识应用,例如经济与政策。来到昆山杜克大学环境硕士项目之后,刘翠在保育领域找到了自己的兴趣与热忱。

目前刘翠带领一支团队在四川平武县王朗,雪宝顶和小河沟自热保护区及周边社区从事有关放牧对熊猫栖息地影响的研究。深入大山与社区采集野外数据和开展农户调查的经历让她对自然保护有了新的认识:保护生态环境需要与社区发展相协调。今后刘翠希望能加入与自然保护相关的组织,从事有关的社区发展和赋能的工作。

Cui used to learn Environmental Engineering at Dalian University of Technology in China. Long for more interdisciplinary wisdoms from economic and policy perspectives to tackle with complex environmental problems the world is facing, she came to DKU and found her passion in conservation here.

Now as a student of Master of Environmental Policy Program, she’s leading a project to mitigate the livestock impact on panda habitats in Pingwu County, China. Over the past summer, she made friends with the forests and local communities when conducting field research and household surveys. These experiences confirmed her that humans are an important component in conservation, especially in China.

Inspired by an international training course Conservation Leadership Programme, Cui hopes to work in conservational non-profits to improve society’s environmental behaviors by conducting ecological fieldwork and/or community empowerment. In her free time, she enjoys playing sports including tennis, badminton and bike riding.

高妍目前就读于昆山杜克大学环境政策硕士项目。2016年,高妍从武汉大学本科毕业,获得英国文学学士和经济学士双学位后,她发现自己对生态保护产生了极大的热情。

2018年,高妍所在的研究团队荣获“青年保护领袖奖”,并得到了10000英镑的科研基金。

高妍目前参与过两个科研项目,第一个是“过度放牧对大熊猫栖息地的影响”。该研究包括三个方面:1)通过实地样方调查,收集牲畜干扰、生境情况、动物痕迹等数据,量化放牧对大熊猫栖息地的变化影响;2)社区入户调查,以进一步了解放牧冲突的社会原因;3)利用社会经济方法确定可能的解决办法。

高妍还撰写了“老河沟——中国第一个社会公益型保护地社区发展项目评估”的案例分析。

除了科研项目之外,高妍也在桃花源生态保护基金会做实习生。主要负责协助国内保护地项目执行,与政府协商开发潜在自然保护地,以及非洲合作项目的对接。

Yan Gao is currently a candidate for Master of Environmental Policy program at Duke Kunshan University. After receiving her B.A. degree in English Literature with a dual degree in Economics from Wuhan University (2016), she found her passion in wildlife conservation.

Yan won the “The 2018 BirdLife Young Conservation Leaders Awards” as a team member and received £10,000 of grant funding for the research “Protect giant panda habitat from livestock overgrazing in Pingwu County, China.” The research includes 1) field research, through livestock disturbance surveys, bamboo surveys, giant panda’s sign survey to quantify the changes of giant panda habitat casued by livestock grazing and 2) household interviews to further understand the social cause of grazing conflicts, and 3) identifying possible solutions using social-economic approach. She also conducted the case study of “Laohegou – the first privately managed nature reserve in China” regarding its community development projects.

Furthermore, Yan is also working for the Paradise Foundation, a domestic non-profit organization, as an intern. Her responsibilities mainly focus on preliminary research of potential nature reserve, protected area planning and African projects coordinating.

胡淼  |  环境政策硕士一年级

Miao HU  |  First year iMEP student

Miao hu

最初是珍·古道尔的《希望·拯救濒危动植物的故事》,成功地唤起了她的对保护保护濒危动植物的渴望。当她读到珍·古道尔在森林里辉煌的工作经历时,她情不自禁地渴望做同样崇高的事业。然而,当她本科进入一所农业大学时,她的梦想几乎破灭了,虽然专业是生态学,但是核心课程其实是农业生态学。她出生在现代化的城市,对农业不感兴趣,她觉得梦想应该更疯狂也更令人兴奋。

2017年选择肯尼亚的野生动物保护训练营更像是她的人生转折点,这使得她仔细思考生命的意义和人与濒危物种间的关系。她意识到人与动物之间的冲突远比她原先想象的复杂。这一经历使她有了探索中国保护生物学领域的愿望。她从肯尼亚回来后,在东洞庭湖做了了有关江豚保护的研究的志愿者工作。之后,她前往四川唐家河国家级自然保护区,在野外保护站对扭角羚、黄喉貂进行了4个月的保护工作。今年夏天,她前往广西北部湾,体验了中国鲎的海岸保护和海滨生物多样性调查。从这些经验中,她发现了这些不同保护区之间的一些有趣的共性和差异。

但她现在仍在探索未来的研究方向,她更喜欢研究一些人类与野生动物关系有关的问题,想要为保护世界上的濒危物种做更多的事情。

It was Jane Goodall’s Hope for Animals and Their World that successfully aroused her sense of mission at first. When reading her brilliant work experience in forest, Miao can’t help yearning for doing the same lofty cause. However, her dream was almost broken off when she entered in to an agriculture university, which lay much emphasis on plants and agricultural commodities. Born in modern city she held no interest in agriculture and her dream ought to be wilder and more thrilling.

Choosing the Wildlife Protection Training Camp in Kenya in 2017 is more like her life turning point, which forces her to reflect on the meaning of lives and the relationship of species. She realized that the conflict between people and animal is far more sophisticated than she’ve originally thought. This experience has given her the desire to explore the conservation biology works in China. After returning from Kenya, she worked as a volunteer in East Dongting Lake to do some researches about the protection of finless porpoise with the Institute of Hydrobiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. After that, she went to Sichuan Tangjiahe National reserve for 4 months and carried out some protection work about Takin and Yellow-throat Martin at the field protection station. And in this summer, she went to the northwestern Gulf of Guangxi province to experience the coastal protection and biodiversity surveys of Chinese cockroaches. From those experiences, she found some interesting commonalities and differences between those various protected areas.

But she is still exploring future research directions now, she prefers studying some issues related to the relationships between humans and wildlife and do more great things to protect endangered species in the world.
