Bruce Chrispo

Bruce’s interest in pursuing an MSc in Conservation Biology is rooted in his early exposure to the natural environment since his childhood years. He grew up in Ngarenanyuki village bordering Arusha National Park (ANAPA). ANAPA is one of the famous protected areas in Tanzania and growing up in its vicinity greatly influenced his love for nature conservation. His love for conservation grew even further when he was a student for seven years at the College of African Wildlife Management, Mweka, pursuing a Basic Certificate in Tourism and Wildlife Management, Technician Certificate in Wildlife Tourism, Ordinary Diploma in Wildlife Management and finally Bachelor Degree in Wildlife Management.

Bruce’s biggest dream is to become a renowned scientist in the field of Conservation Biology, and to contribute to making conservation successful.
