University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Stephen Ham, a senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is majoring in anthropology
with a minor in environmental science. He raised money for his first trip beyond America's borders as an
eighth grader. Traveling to the Amazonian rainforest to learn about conservation and biodiversity, he
returned home to Kentucky to lecture in classes and community groups about his experiences.
For the past several years, Stephen has worked with the Jane Goodall Institute furthering its
international environmental and humanitarian network for youth known as Roots & Shoots, learning managerial
practices of nonprofit organizations, and traveling with United Nations Messenger of Peace, Dr. Jane Goodall.
This summer, as a Burch Fellow, he traveled to both Uganda and Zambia to learn more about great ape conservation
and further his interest in African studies. He attended the third annual Pan African Sanctuary Alliance Conference
and volunteered at Chimfunshi, the worlds' largest chimpanzee sanctuary.
