Research interests

Current research

Dr Natalie Yoh is currently a part of the research programme Wildlife Consumption in Urban Tropical Africa, funded by UK Research and Innovation, and led by Dr Daniel Ingram. This interdisciplinary research programme investigates the socio-cultural, economic, and ecological drivers of the hunting, consumption, and trade of wildlife (for “wild meat”) in rural and urban areas of the tropics and subtropics. Tally is focused on wild meat consumption across West and Central Africa.

Previous research

Tally's previous work has focused on three main themes:

  • The impact of land-use change on vertebrates in tropical forests, primarily focused on tropical bats.
  • How we can use and improve acoustic monitoring techniques for monitoring wildlife.
  • How we can improve equity, diversity, and inclusion in conservation as a discipline.

Tally has undertaken research in Western Europe, Central and South America, Southeast Asia, and Western Africa.
