- November 2015 to September 2016
- Cape Ground Squirrel Project Volunteer Nov ’14 to Nov ’15
I have always had an interest in the natural world, having completed my undergraduate degree studying Geography at the University of Glasgow. For my dissertation I studied the patterns of migration of Maasai into Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, which was a great learning experience, and my first visit to Africa. Since then I have had various jobs, including assistant manager of a safari camp in Zambia. My aim has been to move my work more towards wildlife with the hope to one day be involved in conservation. I started volunteering on the Cape ground squirrel project in November 2014, and a year later I am on-site manager of the project. I hope to start a masters course in the UK in Sept 2016 in Conservation Biology.
