An Emporia native recently returned home from a research project that took him to South Africa.

Thomas Leihsing, a senior majoring in fisheries, wildlife and conservation biology at Kansas State University, traveled to Limpopo, South Africa, to study rodents. He worked with ecologists at Kruger National Park and the Wits Rural Facility — a rural campus of the University of the Witwatersrand — for roughly two weeks.
