Congratulations to Professor Karen Esler from the Department of Conservation Ecology and Entomology at Stellenbosch University for finishing in second place in the South African Women in Science Awards (SAWiSA).

This year’s theme was ‘leveraging science, technology and innovation to enhance inclusive growth and development.’ The awards aim to recognise the excellence of women scientists working in South Africa, profiling them as role models for younger scientists.  Karen was honoured for her research in ecology, specifically ecosystem restoration and invasive biology, where she has excelled throughout her career. An NRF-rated researcher, Karen is considered a world leader in her field. Well done Karen, this is an extraordinary achievement!
