Eniang Inemesit Edem

Volunteer , Biodiversity preservation centre

As a wildlife conservationist and a student at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture in Umudike, Abia state, Nigeria, I am deeply engaged in the study of forestry and environmental management. Additionally, I actively participate as a volunteer for the Nigerian Bird Atlas Project, a vital initiative led by the AP Leventis Ornithological Research Institute in Jos, Plateau state, Nigeria. Furthermore, I contribute my time and efforts as a volunteer at the Biodiversity Preservation Center in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, Nigeria. My passion for nature extends beyond my academic and volunteer commitments. I find joy in immersing myself in the wilderness, whether it be in the field or forest, where I engage in activities such as planting trees and capturing captivating photographs that showcase the beauty of our natural world. My enthusiasm lies at the intersection of wildlife conservation, environmental management, and ornithology. I am dedicated to making a positive impact on our planet and its diverse ecosystems. 🦁🐍🦅🌳 Feel free to connect with me via the following platforms: Twitter: Happiness Eniang  Facebook: Happiness Eniang
