Prof.dr.ir. Hans H. de Iongh
Hans de Iongh has been involved in conservation biology in the tropics since 1990. He was program coordinator of several university collaborations in Asia and Africa. He supervised research on large mammal conservation, human -wildlife conflicts, sustainable forest management and natural resource use. His main subject was large predators in relation to human-wildlife conflicts in Africa and Asia. Through his active role in the International Union for the Conservation of Nature(IUCN), he made an effort to contribute to the conservation of these magnificent animals. Besides his scientific work, he was also much involved in management, especially the participation for the trade union VAWO in the meetings (lokaal overleg) with the university board.
Lectures will take 15-20 minutes, with a discussion of 5-10 minutes, and will be held in English.
