Gus volunteered for Opwall as a research assistant during the 2012 expedition to Honduras, working in both the marine and terrestrial sites. Notably, the excitement and charismatic study species found in large mammal research caught his attention. After graduating from his Biology BSc at the University of York, Gus worked in a small team building a passive house where he gained practical skills useful in field research. Following this, he began a research masters at the University of Bristol focusing on African elephant behaviour in the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, Botswana. Gus has volunteered in practical conservation, research and ecological education for a variety of organisations. Including a role in 2018 as a Dissertation and Field Supervisor with Opwall at Dinokeng Game Reserve, South Africa. Gus will be working with us throughout 2019, preparing for the expeditions to South Africa and Malawi, additionally, returning to Dinokeng to manage the research site on the ground. Loves field work, statistics and making both endeavours fun.
