BSc. Wildlife Management, Class of 2017


It is my network that is every day increasing my net worth. When I graduated last year I thought I was learned, but I later realized I had to remain a learner to be competitive.
Through mentorship (By Dr. P.Webala) I am today running a project in the botanical garden “Establishment of a tree nursery for environmental education and community awareness at selected degraded sites in Narok County, Kenya” funded by the Rufford Foundation.
