She has a background in conservation and is dedicated to saving Africa’s wildlife and wild spaces through innovative education and empowerment solutions.
Elizabeth has always had a passion for conservation and has a masters’s degree in Environmental Management from Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. Her work with the School of Wildlife Conservation is inspiring and is changing the face of conservation in Africa.
Fred Swaniker’s passion for Africa has driven him to establish a range of different institutions across Africa that are dedicated to developing and supporting good leadership throughout the continent. Together these organisations, including African Leadership University, The School of Wildlife Conservation, African Leadership Academy, African Leadership Network and Africa Advisory Group, aim to transform Africa by creating, developing and connecting 3 million leaders by 2060.
Through her work with the African Leadership University, Elizabeth is helping to create a new generation of African leaders across different sectors, who are passionate about conservation and sustainable development.
The School of Wildlife Conservation believes that in order to expand upon the conservation work being done throughout Africa, African communities need to be included and feel that they have a connection to the natural world, which will help them feel incentivized to protect it.
Education is such a powerful conservation tool, which allows us to empower the next generation to become ambassadors for their communities, wildlife, and the environment. Elizabeth is a trailblazer in the African conservation field and the work she is doing through ALU’s School of Wildlife Conservation is groundbreaking. Her vision, determination and passion is inspiring young people, shaping them into conservation leaders who will work together to ensure a brighter future for Africa’s people and wildlife.
