My name is Maddie and I am a third year geogaphy major with a minor in primatology. I am very interested in human wildlife conflicts/interactions along with wildlife management and would love to work for the park service in the future. I am so excited to finally be able to put my past two years of classroom experience to work out in the field here in Botswana. I have loved nature since I was little and I have my parents to credit for that with their endless camping and hiking trips they always took me on. I am so excited to see the incredible landscape and animals here in Botswana along with meeting new people and creating new bonds. I would like to thank the Rapaport scholarship for helping fund my trip and of course I’d like to thank my incredible parents for both funding this trip and always supporting my aspirations.
With love from Botswana 🧡
