Dominic is from the coal-mining town of Wankie (Hwange) in Zimbabwe, home to the country’s largest National Park. As a child he was exposed to both the big and small five and developed his love and passion for wildlife. Wankie district was rife with poaching activities of all wildlife species by locals and foreigners in search of easy income, and this motivated Dominic to prepare for a career that would help him to ensure a future for Zimbabwe’s magnificent wildlife. Dominic is now the Conservation Education Officer at Painted Dog Conservation (PDC) in Zimbabwe, teaching school children the importance of keeping balanced biodiversity levels and sound ecosystems in their locality. He is also an Assistant HIV/Coordinator for the Wild4Life/PDC HIV Aids program. He holds a Bachelor of Educational Administration Planning and Policy Studies degree, a Better Environmental Science Certificate, as well as a Teaching certificate. Dominic runs various wildlife related competitions for clubs, conducts game drives, and is currently studying for his Learner Professional Guides License. He speaks eight languages, which allows him to speak fluently with all the communities in which he works, to more easily convey his love, passion and knowledge of wildlife to these communities.
