By BBN Staff: On Monday, May 20 Belizean Ki’ila Salas graduated from Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (Y&ES) in the United States of America (USA) with a Masters degree in Forestry.
Salas also holds a Bachelor of Science from Loyola University in New Orleans.
The Y&ES forestry program offers courses that includes aspects of science, management and policy of forest resources.
In an article written by Salas before completing her degree at Yale, she explained that the courses at Yale would equip her to achieve her career goals upon returning to her home country, Belize.
Salas says that her principal career objective is to contribute to the protection and sustainable management of Belize’s precious natural resources.
“My area of study would prepare me to participate in designing and implementing sustainable forest management programs, as well as to establish biodiversity conservation programs aimed at protecting and restoring endangered species populations. While Belize has a National Forest Policy, the country has yet to develop a modernized forest legislation and a National Forest Plan. These instruments are sorely needed to chart the strategies for the forest sector’s contribution to national economic development. A much needed strategy, aligned with my area of study, will be to work toward improving and strengthening the management of Belize’s protected natural areas and forest areas that are still rich in biodiversity,” Salas explained.
Salas is the daughter of Senator Osmany Salas who proudly shared his daughters achievements on social media.
BBN congratulates Salas for her achievement!
