My interest in preserving biodiversity and impede climate change led me to the Master in Forest Science programme, and a B.Sc. in forest science. Exchange studies and internships further increased my passion for international wildlife management. With the opportunity of a two-month field study collecting genetic samples on the African wild dog in Zambia, I developed the idea of writing a Master’s thesis on this endangered large carnivore. Now I want to use my experience from my M.Sc. degree and internships to contribute to the work of creating a more sustainable future for wildlife, humans, and natural resources. I believe in the collaboration between international relations to mitigate climate change. Working together, each one contributing to individual knowledge, we can achieve positive climate effects, preserve biodiversity and sustainable management of natural resources.
