Third-year Quest student Elijah Rempe Cetas has been honoured for his conservation research. Elijah was a Quest Summer Fellow at the end of his first year during which time he researched and wrote the proposal. The manuscript was written in collaboration with Quest Social Sciences Faculty Tutor Maï Yasué.
Elijah received the 2016 Rising Star Award from the science journal Conservation Biology for a manuscript titled,“A Systematic Review of Motivational Values and Conservation Success in and around Protected Areas.” Congratulations to Elijah and Maï on their contribution to Conservation Biology, one of the highest impact factor conservation journals.
“This really is a testament to what a student can produce through the very close working relationship/mentoring that Quest students receive from faculty,” said Maï, who served as faculty host for Elijah’s fellowship.
