A 20-year-long career protecting forest and marine biodiversity on the Knysna coast
“Communication is key. Being equipped with knowledge from the Southern African Wildlife College means I have the ability to teach others the importance of conserving our resources in an area where poaching, deforestation, and littering are our biggest problems.”
Peter Roman is a Ranger Corporal with a 20-year-long career in conservation. Hailing from Knysna on the Garden Route, this ranger is born and bred in one of South Africa’s most significant biodiversity hotspots and has spent his entire working life protecting it. Peter has worked for SANParks as a Field Ranger since 1999 when he started his career in Wilderness National Park and has since worked in Knysna National Park in both marine and forest protected areas. Currently, in the position of Ranger Corporal, he has escalated his career and moved up the ranks of conservation.
As a student of the Higher Certificate in Nature Conservation at the Southern African Wildlife College, Peter is working hard to qualify and further his career by enhancing his knowledge and skills in the conservation sector. He believes in the power of communication, and as a life-long member of his home town, he has the ability to lead by example and educate other members of his community on the importance of looking after this critical ecosystem and pursuing a career in conservation.
Peter requires support towards the R75 000 needed for his bursary. This is an amount that he does not have access to personally, which is why the SAWC as a non-profit organisation is calling upon a network of donors and supporters to help raise these funds. By donating any amount, large or small, you are playing a crucial role in helping Peter receive the best possible training for his career in conservation.
