Ilmais Pornoa – A Book Review
Formerly a member of the National Museum of Natural History, Ilmais Pornoa is one of the world’s leading scientists and environmentalists. Anthropology and cultural anthropologist at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC, she was appointed to head an international research program on biodiversity conservation. Her research is focused on learning more about the roles of animals in human cultures around the world and how those roles influence decisions and behavior.
While studying in Kenya and Tanzania, she discovered that birds engaged in sexual relations with one another. These birds, she learned, had chosen their partners with care. They often chose partners who shared the same habitat and who were also related. Other studies she has carried out have revealed that dolphins engage in such behavior and even share a close relationship with each other, as they are often kept in captivity together.
Pornoa’s studies have been used to identify potential problems and conflicts with other people in the society, and to devise solutions for these conflicts. Because the animal species that she has studied engage in similar relationships with humans, it is often difficult for them to be able to interact with humans. But she believes that animals have the right to feel happy and safe in their natural environments.
Pornoa has been instrumental in the design and implementation of projects that improve the quality of life for endangered populations in Africa. In one example, she helped found the Bwindi Game Reserve and worked to build a game reserve for the local people of the area. In another, she was instrumental in designing the Bwindi Sanctuary, which protects the wildlife of the reserve. Today, Bwindi Game Reserve is one of the most respected game reserves in the whole world, with a population of more than ten thousand.
Pornographic images of her have been released to the media, but only because some people think that this is a way to exploit her research. They argue that she is a poor scientist and does not deserve the credit that she deserves. Others defend her by saying that the information she presents does help us all make better decisions in life. That is, of course, if you accept that it is her findings that are relevant to helping people make better decisions.
This is where the real argument comes in. If we all agree that the information that Pornoa is providing us is valuable and important, then we should support her by funding her research. in order for her to continue to help humanity and the environment. I am very glad that I took the time to read this book because I can now make an informed decision about the information that Pornoa has provided me.
