Meet Our Conservationists In The Making 

"Truth be told, one cannot come to ALU and leave the same. Every time, I get to campus, I feel greatness in the air and the pressure to get to work and be a light for Africa.” 

Aminata Soumah Guinea Leadership Core, Year 1  

"Our passion, whatever its size, will never lead to anything without work. This is the role that ALU SOWC plays for me. The school gives me opportunities to discover, learn and practice what I love, but also to meet conservation experts who help me grow each time a little more. With each conservationist in residence, I can get an idea of the different careers that exist in conservation as well as their requirements; and determine which path to choose. It's a real privilege to be able to do this so early in my career. I stay in touch with the experts that related the most to my journey and they continue to help me shape a clear vision of what I will do later.  I would probably never have met then if not here."
