   Biography

Have been doing ornithology work for the past 19 yrs, my main interests being raptor research and conservation education. I have done a lot of research and monitoring on raptors, especially Black Eagles (Aquila verreauxii) and its diet in the Matobo Hills, Zimbabwe. I also have done a lot of Cape Griffon monitoring at its northern-most roosting site of its distribution range (Wabai Hills, Zimbabwe). I also have been monitoring the population and breeding success of Fish Eagles in Lake Chivero, near harare, a heavily polluted lake in Zimbabwe. My mentor is Professor Peter John Mundy, now at the National University of Science and Technology, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, who I have worked with for 14 years. I am a founding member of the Zimbabwe Raptor Research Group, that includes the Zimbabwe Falconers Club. I am also a member of the IUCN Afrotheria Specialist Group - my interests here being hyraxes (because of the Black Eagles).
