My name is Adam Roberts and I grew up in Kent, England. I have a burning passion for the conservation of all things nature. I was trained as a guide / ranger in South Africa where I worked on a private reserve for a small NGO monitoring the Lion population. The area was a hot-spot for poaching and only a few months before I was enrolled 7 Lions (including cubs) were lost in one mass snare incident. I would monitor the lions by walking the bush to find them on a daily basis, giving me an incredible (and not to mention sometimes unnerving) glimpse into the world of these majestic cats. Camera traps, scat analysis and visual documentation were used in conjunction with more on-the-ground anti-poaching techniques.
