Edwin Tambara is African Wildlife Foundation's Director of Global Leadership. He works with multilateral organizations such as the United Nations and the World Bank, as well as the U.S. and Canadian governments, to influence sound conservation policies and encourage development financing that supports African wildlife. Edwin joined AWF as part of our second class of Conservation Management Trainees. Growing up in Zimbabwe, he saw first-hand the destruction of wild lands and habitats and was inspired to pursue a career in conservation. According to Edwin, "Every day presents a new reason for us to protect our biodiversity and the environment. Get involved! Go and enjoy the outdoors and remember to always give back to the environment a better product than you get from it."
