About Caspian Johnson

I am a Conservation Biologist who’s research focuses on understanding how human threats are influencing the distribution and status of threatened species; a fundamental component in evidence-based applied conservation. He has experience working in very challenging and remote tropical and savannah environments in Africa and Southeast Asia, where he has designed and implemented large-scale wildlife surveys. I gained his PhD from Swansea University in 2015 where he studied the ecology and sympatry of baboon and chimpanzee communities in western Tanzania. I joined the Bristol Zoological Society in 2019 where I co-lead the Society’s Kordofan Giraffe Project, working together with the conservation service of Benoue National Park to enhance the protection of the parks biodiversity, in particular the Critically Endangered Kordofan giraffe. I have also begun exploring the use of drones to detect and survey large mammals.
