        The keynote speaker is Dr. Aiah Lebbie from Njala University in Sierra Leone where he is the head of the Department of Biological Sciences. Dr. Debbie earned his BSc from the University of Sierra Leone in 1989, and his MS in Conservation Biology & Sustainable Development (1995) and PhD in Forest Ecology & Management (2001) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research focuses on integrating biological knowledge in addressing conservation/biodiversity issues in Liberia and Sierra Leone with an emphasis on human interactions with tropical ecosystems and understanding social consequences. His research encompasses sacred groves (cultural & biological), ecology of tropical plants and understanding the context in which health, disease, traditional knowledge and medicinal plants converge. He has taught and researched for Njala University College, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Njala University, and the Environment Foundation for Africa.
