Amy Dickman, founder of the Ruaha Conservation Project in Tanzania and all-round conservation super star is one of the honorees of our Annual Event, which this year is taking place on March 5th at the Whitby Hotel in NYC. Tickets are available to buy through the link in our bio and we would love to see you there!
As well as meeting Amy and our other fearless women working in the conservation space in Africa, there will be a chance to bid on a selection of safaris across some of Africa’s most incredible parks and reserves, generously donated by our partners.
Amy founded Ruaha Carnivore Project in Tanzania in 2009, after receiving her Msc and PhD in the area and a 5-year Fellowship from Oxford University. Her aim was to establish an internationally significant conservation project and her vision has been one of the defining factors in the way the vast Ruaha landscape, and other areas, are managed in Tanzania.
With her academic background, she works alongside researchers to provide solid scientific research that is in turn used by the government to make informed decisions towards well-managed wilderness areas and, of course, to protect wildlife. One of Amy’s greatest achievements is educating communities close to Ruaha National Park in order to create sustainable scenarios in which villagers are connected to conservation and benefit directly from it.
