My name is Sarah Bell. I am currently working towards my PhD at Oxford Brookes University in Oxford, UK studying human-perceptions of wildlife in a post-Ebola landscape in Sierra Leone. I also have my Masters of Science in Primate Conservation from Oxford Brookes and my Bachelors of Science in Anthropology with a Minor in Journalism from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. I love all wild life and wild spaces, and most of all, I want to preserve them.
This blog will be dedicated to conservation education, science and animal related news, and my personal journey to serve as a guide for those who will come behind me.
To follow my journey to the jungle find the category on the left-hand side of the page titled “My Journey.”
Not all photos are mine and although many are courtesy of the respective artists on Flickr Creative Commons. I still respect your choice, so if you find one of your pictures and would like it taken down, simply ask and it will be done.
