ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis-based collaborative is providing funding for eight biodiversity projects, including one in Africa.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Living Earth Collaborative announced funding for the projects earlier this week.

The partnership involves Washington University, the Missouri Botanical Garden and the St. Louis Zoo and provides a forum for researchers to find common interests and to work together.

One of this year’s projects will involve the study of an endangered zebra species in Kenya and human-wildlife conflicts in East Africa.

Other projects funded this year will occur in the St. Louis region, including one to study freshwater environments, including the Meramec River watershed.
