From the time I was able to put together my own dreams, I knew that wildlife would be involved. Having had the incredible privilege of spending the first few years of my life at Phinda Private Game Reserve, with one of South Africa’s foremost conservationists as my father, I was afforded experiences that most children only read about.

While conducting my honours degree in Zoology, I started to realise that my love for wildlife was fostered through first-hand experiences and the ability to acquire knowledge about the things that interested me most. Lessons in Conservation was created to share that knowledge, create awareness and facilitate exposure to children from underprivileged communities in the hope that the fire which burns so bright for conservation in us, may be sparked in them too.
