This week, Pulitzer Center 2017 student fellow Elham Shabahat will take over our Instagram account. 

With a background in conservation, environmental justice, and climate change adaption, Shabahat travelled to northern Rwanda to uncover climate change impact on mountain gorillas.  In this Pulitzer Center funded reporting trip, Shabahat also explored how local communities near Rwanda's national parks are adapting to climate change.
