I am responsible for organizing conservancy meetings, sending out meeting notices and taking minutes, handling conservancy correspondences, and safekeeping conservancy documents.

Over the past few years, the landscape has drastically changed negatively due to drought and climate change. There is subsistence poaching that takes place now with some community members involved. The conservancy makes sure to sensitize its members, but it is hard to keep track of domestic poachers because people are scared to report or identify them.

I have high regard for nature because we highly depend on it as farmers, to sustain our livestock and wildlife with grazing. I feel free and very spontaneous with nature.
