Who We Are
Adam Cruise, PhD
Adam Cruise is an award-winning investigative environmental journalist, academic and author from South Africa. He has contributed to a number of international publications, including National Geographic and The Guardian, covering diverse topics from the plight of wildlife in Africa to marine species in Indonesia and the plight of polar bears. He has a PhD in Philosophy specialising in environmental and animal ethics from Stellenbosch University in South Africa. He is the author of It’s Not About the Bats, a book that explores wildlife conservation and the human relationship with the natural world.
Rosie Awori is a Kenyan journalist, senior writer and a corporate communications strategist specialising in African policy and wildlife conservation from an African perspective and with an African voice. Her work centres around championing for elephant conservation and highlighting the predicament of the rural communities living with and alongside them, writing numerous articles to this effect. Her work has been published in The Independent UK among others. She hopes that her generation will one day see a world where wildlife in Africa is no longer under threat from human actions – such as poaching, trophy hunting, habitat destruction, climate change and pollution.
