Matt Cooper is one of the founding directors of KFF and worked previously together with Steve at Kyaninga Lodge. He is currently completing a PhD through the ETH in Zurich but is based largely in Uganda where his research is addressing the legacy effects of land conversion on forest recovery in Kibale Forest National Park. He is passionate about preserving biodiversity and sees trees as the backbone to achieving this as they provide habitat for so many other species (mammals, birds, insects, fungi etc). By finding ways to incorporate indigenous trees into current farming practices, he hopes this will have a trickle-down effect on the whole agro-ecosystem, benefiting both the farmer and the natural world. He’s also a bit of a cycad freak!
Steve is the co-founder of Kyaninga Forest Foundation, after a long spell of working together with Matt to reforest the areas around Kyaninga lodge together they decided to expand their reach further afield. Growing up on a farm in the UK Steve is aware of the devastation to the agroecosystem modern farming methods have caused. Following Matts expert lead he hopes to aid the fast-developing expanse in agricultural throughout Uganda to follow practical agroforestry methods.
