Disney Conservation Hero: Edriss Ebu

Edriss in the field working on the latest vaccine trial - Web Valley, Bale Mountains

When Dr. Claudio Sillero-Zubiri traveled to Ethiopia in 1986 to work on his PhD, I wonder if he knew that his teenage camp assistant would grow to play such a vital role in the yet to be founded Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme (EWCP).

Edriss Ebu has poured his heart and soul into helping the Ethiopian Wolf, moving up the ranks from camp assistant to research assistant all the way to the top as the EWCP Programme Manager in the Bale Mountains.  His tireless dedication to conservation has just been recognized by the Walt Disney Company! He’s been awarded the prestigious Disney Conservation Hero Award.  We couldn’t be more proud!

Congratulations Edriss!!
