Bob currently lives in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe where he previously worked as the Chief Principal Researcher for ALERT: African Lion & Environmental Research Trust and worked hands on in the wild each day to help with conservation efforts. Bob studied at Cornell University and UC Davis on a Herbert Humphries Fellowship. He is the Founder of 4 C’s Climate-Community-Conservation-Corps, a project to bring vital attention to the urgent need to supply his village with clean drinking water. He is very passionate about wildlife conservation and the need for people and animals to live in harmony with each other and works closely with the WWF-US by collecting data for further study. Bob is probably the only speaker to have been chased by a mad bull elephant and has a lesson to share as a result of his dramatic encounter.
