Summary

I have skills to lead groups with projects and to act as a mentor to students studying conservation which I was appointed for. I also see the value in environmental education, and love to work with children, youth, students and the community in need. I have good administrative skills and also regard admin as the most important part of planning and execution of projects. I am computer literate and also enjoy doing designing and editing for photography in various programs. I am a very dedicated person, and trust in building relationships to truly really build into people's lives. I have learnt a great deal of working with children, youth and students with our environmental education programs which we hosted on the reserve and also value working and mentoring the students from different universities. I have also built up experience in game management, from dealing with permits, report writing (feedback), setting up game translocation plans, erosion control, animal feeding, maintenance, game health, wildlife rehabilitation, alien invasive control, firebreaks, game counts, media and various conservation research projects.
