Louisa Richmond-Coggan

The driving force behind the career path I have taken has been my desire to use the knowledge gained from scientific research and apply it to conservation management action plans and strategies. Every experience and qualification I gained has developed my understanding of the field of conservation and the logistical requirements needed to run a project as well as feeding my enthusiasm and love of wildlife and conservation. Discussing human-wildlife conflict with local Maasai communities in Kenya or Afrikaans farming community in South Africa, the fundamental message is the same but the solutions are very different and that is where I believe the challenge lies. I look forward to tackling these challenges and in turn developing as a conservation practitioner.
