Jesca Mchomvu

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Management from the College of African Wildlife Management – Mweka, Tanzania. As part of my undergraduate studies, I conducted research on human-hippopotamus interactions. Since graduating, I have worked with different organisations involved in wildlife conservation and community development. For example, I worked on the Elephant Project in Simiyu-Meatu, implemented by the Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute and the SUSTAIN Project in Kilombero Landscape, run by the African Wildlife Foundation. In the field of conservation, I am interested in the interaction between wildlife and people and writing conservation papers. In September 2019, I started working as a Field Assistant for ConHuB Tanzania where my role is to collect primary data from people living close to protected areas in the Ruaha-Rungwa landscape.
