Earlier this month, GIF welcomed Jennifer Appoo as the new Project Manager for the Green Islands Foundation. In 2012, Jennifer graduated from the University of Montpellier 2 in Montpellier, France with a BSc in Geosciences. She continued her studies at the same university with a MSc specialized in Coastal and Marine Zone Management, from which she graduated in 2014. Her interest in environmental conservation issues drew her to work for the Green Islands Foundation Seychelles. Jennifer is currently coordinating a shark awareness and education project to sensitize the community on the importance of sharks in the marine ecosystem. She is also assisting with the Protected Area project on Denis and North Island, as well as the tourism project on Denis Island.
We are very happy that she is part of the GIF team and she is already hard at work developing educational materials for the GEF SGP shark project.
Good luck Jennifer!
