Lara is a zoologist and conservation biologist who has lived and worked in Africa for the past year. Although she specialises in black rhino feeding ecology, she has also been fortunate enough to study mouse lemurs in Madagascar and the dolphins along Zanzibar’s coastline.
Lara is extremely passionate about preserving our world and is determined to ensure that there is a future for as many species as possible hence her interest in science communication. She strongly believes that raising awareness and increasing engagement is the key to successful conservation efforts. In 2017, she set up a wildlife instagram page to shine a light on some of the most pressing threats to our wildlife, and fast forward three years later, she is proud to have shared her journey with a whole community of animal lovers and wildlife warriors.
Lara is determined to use her camera as a voice for the voiceless and continue telling the stories of those who work tirelessly to conserve some of the most endangered species on the planet. You can join her journey on instagram @lara_wildlife.
