When you embark on your conservation travel journey with African Conservation Experience, I'll be among the first to welcome you aboard. Our initial chat will begin by understanding your conservation goals and any questions you may have. From this, I can guide you towards the perfect project where your time will truly make a difference! I’m also here to share inspiring stories from past travellers and updates on our ongoing projects, shedding light on how you and others have made a real impact on conservation efforts in southern Africa.

I’ve always been very passionate about wildlife, which was a driving force behind my ecology and conservation-focused BSc and PhD Zoology degrees from the University of Exeter. From studying threatened turtle populations in the Mediterranean to researching sharks and rays in the Bahamas, my academic journey has resulted in a deep-seated interest in marine conservation. However, my dedication to wildlife extends beyond the oceans; my PhD looked into the behaviour of captive-raised Asian short-clawed otters, aiming to assist future reintroduction programmes.

I've always found joy in sharing my knowledge and passion for conservation, whether through teaching aspiring conservationists at the University of Exeter during my PhD or now, in my role at African Conservation Experience. The experiences I've had working hands-on in impactful conservation projects have been some of the most fulfilling moments of my life. It's a privilege to share my enthusiasm for wildlife and help others embark on similar journeys.
