Hey, I'm Dr Roan D. Plotz. I am currently a Scientist and Project Manager of the Traditional Ecological Knowledge Weather Project in the Pacific, with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology in Melbourne. Previously, I was a PhD Candidate at the Centre for Biodiversity and Restoration Ecology, Victoria University of Wellington, NZ, and Centre for African Conservation Ecology, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, R.S.A. I spent three years researching and tracking black rhino on foot in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, Zululand, towards my PhD (The interspecific relationships of black rhinos in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park). Prior to this I completed a BSc (ConsBiolEcol) Honours degree from La Trobe University in Australia. My interest and research in Africa’s animals came from my childhood in South Africa before I emigrated to Melbourne, Australia. I have also done remote fieldwork on fur seals on Kangaroo Island, South Australia and trained and taught high school for two years in the UK and Australia. For all my publications and details see my LinkedIn Profile.

Tailored safari specialists. When and where to go in Africa, and with whom. A few weeks too early / late or a few kilometers off course and you could miss the greatest show on Earth. And wouldn’t that be a pity?
