I am Consolata Gitau, a researcher with a passion for conservation. I am finalizing on MSc Range management (Ecology option). My thesis title is Activity time budget of Rothschild's giraffes in Lake Nakuru National park. My career journey has been very informative and has molded me into a competitive researcher in the conservation field. I have worked with African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFFEW) as an MSc Fellow, International Livestock Research Institute working on a project involving the collection of data for a Green House Gases emission project, and BirdLife International.  Most recently, while working with Birdlife International, I led a detailed literature review on the illegal killing of birds in Sub-Saharan Africa. I have published web articles, led webinars, and contributed to daily newspaper articles (Attached below).

At BirdLife international, I also worked on policy and legislation analysis on laws and policies that affect vulture conservation efforts in Africa. I am currently open to working and contributing to the goals of conservation and specific organization's objectives. I am pleased to join the WildHub space and widen my network.
