Lara is a conservation biologist whose research has taken her from the black rhino population in East Africa to the Belizean rainforests, from the mouse lemurs of Madagascar’s dry forests to the dolphins off the coast of Zanzibar. Extremely passionate about preserving our world, Lara is determined to ensure that there is a future for as many species as possible, hence her interest in science communication. She strongly believes that raising awareness and increasing engagement is the key to successful conservation efforts.
In 2017, Lara set up a wildlife Instagram page to shine a light on some of the most pressing threats to our wildlife. Fast forward a few years later, and she is proud to have shared her journey with a whole community of animal lovers and wildlife warriors. Lara is determined to use her camera as a voice for the voiceless and continue telling the stories of those who work tirelessly to conserve some of the most endangered species on the planet.
