Dr Jeremy Anderson

Jeremy Anderson has almost 40 years experience in Wildlife Conservation. Starting as a Game Ranger in Zululand, he then became a biologist in the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Management in Zimbabwe working on game ranching and elephant and buffalo population management. 

He obtained his Ph.D. on the ecology of Nyala in Zululand and then worked on lion management in Umfolozi before becoming Director of Pilanesberg National Park, and then Director of the KaNgwane Parks Board (now the Mpumalanga Parks Board).

He has undertaken a variety of conservation projects in Africa (Angola, Botswana, South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Zambia) and further afield (Saudi Arabia, Syria, Sri Lanka, and China). He was a partner in an innovative ecotourism company and consults on nature-related tourism in Africa to a major international leisure group. His wide range of experience, particularly in evaluating, planning and managing protected areas and wildlife utilization projects, is a useful bridge between scientists and field managers. He has published 30 scientific papers.
