What interests you most
In the quest of mitigating climate change and ensuring food security one cannot do without people. Meeting people with diverse cultural backgrounds, values and ideas about nature excites me. I find it very interesting when I imagine ways these values and ideas could be harnessed to achieve an environmental goal.
I love what I do because…
I love wildlife and I believe love is not a feeling but a commitment. The only sure means by which I can demonstrate this love is to constantly advocate and show commitment towards the protection of threatened Wildlife species and their habitats. Through my work, I am achieving this quest and that makes me fulfilled.
