“I have a deep passion for wildlife conservation. The Tsavo Conservation Area (TCA) is Kenya’s largest conservation ecosystem, holding a significant percentage of our wildlife species. I have over 20 years experience working in the country with communities who have taken up wildlife as a land use option. Being part of the team as a Tsavo Trust board member connects me to this concept, which is my desire to continue to advocate for impact and sustainability.”
