Oluwadunsin Emmanuel Adekola

MSc Conservation Biology, APLORI, Uni Jos

Oluwadunsin’s interest in Conservation especially in the area of Ornithology was birthed during his Undergraduate days. Oluwadunsin completed his undergraduate degree in Ecotourism and Wildlife Management at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria (2013). After his Masters Degree in Wildlife Ecology and Management, he pursued another MSc in Conservation Biology at A.P Leventis Ornithological Research Institute, University of Jos, Nigeria which he completed in 2017. His project assessed feather growth bars of some passerines in North-Central, Nigeria using ptilochronology as a technique.

For his PhD, Oluwadunsin is exploring patterns of moulting and intensity of ornamentation signals in the Cape Gannet. He is supported by NRF-TWAS African Renaissance Doctoral Scholarship.
