New Mexico State University education professor Prentice Baptiste calls his summer plans, “a serendipitous opportunity to explore the ecology and natural environments of wildlife in the national parks of Kenya as well as examine the culture of the people.”
Baptiste leaves for Kenya, Africa, July 6 and will spend most of the month mingling his research interests in ecology and multiculturalism.
“Both of my professional interests will be highlighted for this trip,” Baptiste said.
Baptiste, who teaches elementary science and secondary science methods courses at NMSU, is looking forward to visiting the Samburu National Game Reserve, known for its unique species of mammals and birds, and the Lake Nakuru National Park, a world famous bird sanctuary. He also will visit the Maasai Mara National Park, known for its lion and cheetah habitats.
