Thandi Mweetwa ~ Zambian Carnivore Program

Thandi Mweetwa grew up in Mfuwe, a small town in the Eastern Province of Zambia. Her first encounter with wildlife biology was when she was twelve years old. It became her passion, and through this enthusiasm, she ended up graduating from British Columbia with a BSc in Applied Animal Biology. This was followed by further studies at the University of Arizona, where she graduated with a Masters in Natural Resources Conservation. Her pivotal role at the Zambian Carnivore Program is as a community educator, senior ecologist, and — of course — an inspiration for other young women to walk beside her in the conservation and research field.

Alice Péretié ~ #PhotographyForConservation

Her degree in Arts and Sciences at UCL, focused on Sustainable Development, Wildlife Conservation and Project Management. She is a freelance photographer, writing articles and supporting conservation through photography, and storytelling. Wise beyond her years, at 22, her passion and knowledge interlink as she draws inspiration from both philosophy and wildlife to create beautiful and influencing content. “Art is such a powerful medium for raising awareness, and funds.”

Agata Passoni ~ The Safari Sisters

He loved working, being busy, leading others. I was invited to his table, allowed to speak, and was told I belonged. I always felt I belonged, up there, on the top. Losing him was life-altering, my universe changed, my centre of gravity was gone.
