Since its formation, iCWild has graduated a number students with expertise in conservation conflict from ecological, social and governance perspectives. These alumni have since taken up various strategic roles in conservation-related policy development and practice. Their experience and expertise continues to guide management decisions, and how it shapes values and behaviour towards wildlife in Africa.
