From a young age, Lana was able to travel extensively across the African continent, soaking up everything it had to offer.
Traveling throughout Africa and experiencing the incredible wildlife and diverse landscapes grew Lana’s love for the natural world, and cemented her passion for big predators, particularly big cats.
This passion drove her to pursue a BSc degree in Conservation Ecology at Stellenbosch University. She then further pursued her studies in The Netherlands, with a focus on lion-livestock conflict research projects in Cameroon and Kenya.
After completing her studies she returned to Africa and began working at Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, as a Conservation Manager, where she focused on working with local Maasai communities to alleviate human-wildlife conflict.
