Jennifer Angoh


Jennifer has always been fascinated by the interaction between many of the wild species she would be able to catch a glimpse of or even better, handle. Her passion for biodiversity and its conservation grew throughout her BSc degree in Biology. After graduating it became clear to her that a career in conservation was not merely a desire, but her calling. Jennifer was lucky enough to volunteer for the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation, monitoring endemic bird populations. After this experience, she worked for Wildlife Preservation Canada on a project that involved mark-recapture of a threatened turtle species in Ontario. In July 2014, she moved to South Africa, land of contrasts and diversity, where she was introduced to a whole new side of conservation. As an intern with SA National Parks she raised awareness about local conservation issues among the communities living in and around the Garden Route National Park. This made her realize how important it is to give to the leaders of tomorrow (a.k.a. kids) the knowledge to help safeguard nature for future generations.
