What I do
What is our purpose on earth if we are not of use to others and to earth with all her critters and creatures?
Sharon's first "love" in conservation is rhinos. Ever since first interviewing and working with Dr William Fowlds most of Sharon's efforts in conservation have been on rhinos.
Specific Conservation Projects
Although rhinos will always be the main focus, Sharon also gets involved with other conservation projects such as cheetah rewilding projects, elephant rescues, etc.
Sharon believes that the future of conservation and curbing any form of poaching lies with community involvement, community upliftment and community ownership of land, fixed assets and animals.
