During this time, he earned a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology at the University of Cape Town (2000). He joined ICS as a fulltime partner in 2002. He is currently engaged in his doctoral studies at the University of Virginia. His dissertation research focuses on the habitat requirements of the mountain bongo antelope (Tragelaphus eurycerus isaaci), which he will determine using remote sensing and individual-based modeling techniques. This work will provide crucial scientific support to a larger project that aims to reintroduce North American captive-bred mountain bongo to their native range on Mount Kenya. Mr. Estes also holds a BA in English from Georgetown University. He speaks siSwati and isiZulu.
