I am a conservation biologist and researcher currently working for BirdLife South Africa, Save The Snakes and Wild Serve. My passion for wildlife and nature has led me to work with various conservation organisations which has ignited my interest in conservation technology, conservation communication and finding new ways to save species and their habitats. Having completed my Masters in ecology, environment and conservation, I have a strong interest in research, with a focus on herpetology and evolutionary biology. I enjoy asking key questions about how species have evolved and adapted to their current conditions.
My Masters research focused on the evolutionary patterns of diet within the snake family, Lamprophiidae. Specifically I looked at how certain traits affect dietary patterns in these snakes. I enjoy research in herpetology and hope to pursue much of this in the future
It is our responsibility as humans to protect our planet and contribute in some way to make that happen. I like to get involved with many organisations and initiatives to create awareness, assist in research and communication and contribute towards a society that lives in harmony with wildlife and nature.
Organisations I work for
My skills and specialties include writing, communications and marketing, data analytics, R and C programming, electronics and technology, photography, design and research.
