Meshack Tshingwe

Meshack from Limpopo, first studied public management as a profession, and turned to conservation when he began witnessing first-hand the effects of poaching on his community. 
It is his vision for youth who care for wildlife to become know all over around the world, sharing information to help protect our environment. He believes that a new generation of conservationists and nature enthusiasts can understand that poaching is not wrong because it is illegal, but illegal because it is wrong.  Building upon his current knowledge and skills he gained at the Youth Forum for People and Wildlife, he is now working with South African National Parks to make this dream a reality.

"I can say that the best education I ever had, started at home. This was when mother taught me the principles in life and values that I still hold strong until this very day."
