On this week’s The Sci-Files, your hosts Chelsie and Danny interview Aalayna Green. Aalayna is a senior undergraduate student in the Department of Integrative Biology/Zoology studying the gendered implications of urban wildmeat trafficking in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Her work draws from conservation criminology as well as women’s and gender studies. She seeks to give voice and a narrative to the womxn involved in wildlife crime so as to create more sustainable and gender-inclusive conservation initiatives. Aalayna has broad interests within the wildlife crime sector, and she is particularly interested in understanding overlap of illicit trade and intervention strategies which utilize sustainable community involvement.
