Explore Field Science at Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya with Paleoanthropologist Dr. Briana PobinerWebcasts & Online
Thursday, October 28, 2021, 1 – 2pm EDT
Join paleoanthropologist Dr. Briana Pobiner for a virtual field trip to her field site in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya. She’ll share images from this active field site to walk students through what kind of evidence her team is looking for and how it’s discovered, introduce the students to the team of experts that make discoveries possible, and illustrate what it’s like to live, sleep, and eat while doing field work.
Dr. Pobiner studies the evolution of human diets. Her field work in Ol Pejeta Conservancy helps her team discover evidence that scientists study to reveal how bones can help them reconstruct ancient habitats and what predators were active in those habitats.
