Photographer Jamie Unwin receives the 2016 Scott Pearlman Field Award for Project Kenya

/img>

Jamie Unwin, a 21 year-old student at the University of Exeter, will be filming an expedition led by fellow co-founder and student, Hannah Pollock, across Kenya to discover why some local communities embrace, conserve, and take ownership of Kenya’s wildlife and other communities don’t. How are these people different? Why, in the midst of much poverty, hunger, and civil unrest, have they decided to selflessly conserve wildlife, and how can their actions be replicated across Kenya and throughout Africa? The second phase of Project Kenya, in 2017, will communicate their conclusions in a film that will be shown at wildlife-human conflict hotspots in Kenya using a bicycle powered cinema designed and constructed by Jamie. For more informations about Jamie, go to StandUpforNature.org.

Exploration and field research requires a high level of dedication and enormous commitment of personal time and financial resources. The 2016 Scott Pearlman Field Award Committee and The Explorers Club are proud to support “Project Kenya” with a grant of $10,000. Jamie has applied for student membership of The Explorers Club’s British Chapter.
