Mr. Peter Amum - MENTOR Fellow from Southern Sudan

Mr. Peter Amum    

Peter Amum was one of eight USFWS MENTOR Fellows in 2008-2009 from Kenya, Southern Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda working to address the illegal bushmeat exploitation in the Eastern Africa region. 

As a MENTOR Fellow from Southern Sudan, Peter Amum completed his bushmeat field assessment on Boma National Park in Southern Sudan. He implemented a bushmeat awareness campaign in Southern Sudan at both the national and site level in Boma. The campaign used the White Eared Kob, a major target species of the bushmeat trade, to help raise awareness and promote action.

Peter Amum has worked as a wildlife adviser in the Wildlife Conservation General Administration in Khartoum for six years.
