Dragonfly Students Support the Conservation Work of AERF

In summer 2020, a team of Dragonfly students supported the ongoing work of our Earth Expeditions: India partner, Applied Environmental Research Foundation (AERF), a conservation organization working with communities in the Western Ghats.  The “Earth Expeditions: Connected Conservation” (EECC) team – including Teresa Slonaker, Chelsea Vabro, Cameron Kniffen and Kevin Browning – collaborated on a pangolin-focused campaign and developed these visuals. Pangolins are the world’s most trafficked mammalian species, but many people don’t know about their existence. Their goal was to raise awareness about the truths behind the species and how people can help, without drawing the attention of poachers to the species.
