GREENFIELD — Natalie Hines, a Greenfield resident and graduate student at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, is traveling in Borneo this month to study Borneo’s primates. Hines is working to develop new ways to engage communities worldwide in primate conservation as part of Miami University’s Project Dragonfly.

Since the program began 13 years ago, Project Dragonfly’s Earth Expeditions graduate courses have engaged more than 2,000 people in firsthand educational and scientific research at critical conservation field sites in Africa, Australia, Asia and the Americas. Project Dragonfly is part of the biology department at Miami University. For more information Hines’ course of study, visit
