Like many others, Africa captured my imagination at a young age and 8 years ago I relocated to Tanzania from Australia while working for a leading travel company. Plunging into the world of safaris I soon realised there was more to Tanzania than just a diverse array of wildlife on a dramatic landscape and I began to understand the challenges faced when dense populations of humans and wildlife live side by side.
The safari industry exposed me to a variety of projects that were working to either conserve wildlife and habitat or support local communities, but rarely both at the same time. After meeting Jo and Marc I discovered that it is possible to both protect nature and support human communities at the same time, thereby caring for the overall health of our planet.
Coming to the sector from the outside, I know that navigating the world of conservation and community development in Africa can be overwhelming, and that is why my role at Carbon Tanzania is to guide you through the offsetting journey and answer questions relating to the innovative approach and numerous benefits of our business and conservation projects. I also offer advice on how contributing to climate change mitigation can give businesses an edge over their competition.
