Project Description

Thomas Elliott of Carrboro, NC graduated from Chapel Hill High School. Thomas will be traveling to South Africa where he will be working with the University of Witswatersrand’s SUNRAE (Sustaining Natural Resources in African Ecosystems) in Johannesburg. SUNRAE is a research program that focuses on the interactions between local communities and their environment. He will be working in the field to help conduct research for a professor. Thomas hopes his contact work with the people of the Limpopo region will grow his knowledge and interest in global sustainable ecosystems and biodiversity in the face of advancing globalization.
