Ms Femke Broekhuis
After completing a Bachelor in Biology in 2006 at the University of Utrecht, The Netherlands, I continued with a Masters in Wild Animal Biology at the Royal Veterinary College at the University of London in collaboration with the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). For my dissertation I looked at the habitat selection patterns of cheetahs in the Serengeti, Tanzania. Soon after completing my Masters in 2007 I ended up working as a research assistant for Zinta Zommers, a D.Phil. student at WildCRU, collecting behavioural data on chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) in Budongo Forest, Uganda. Once I completed the fieldwork in Uganda I went on to work for the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust (BPCT) where I am currently carrying out my research.
