Before WWCT

Anskar Lenzen & Lea Milde – Van Hall University, Netherlands

April 2017

We both had a passion for animals, nature and wildlife lifelong. We eventually met in the language course of our current bachelor study, Animal Management with the major Wildlife Management, in the Netherlands (we are both originally from Germany). Our first internship we did apart, Lea in South Africa and Anskar in Ecuador. For our major internship (just before the start of our bachelor thesis) we decided to do something together on a continent not one of us has been to. As our university did not have any offers in south-east Asia we took it on ourselves to find something suitable. We both had a thing for mammals and already worked with camera traps before in different countries, so WWCT sounded very suitable to us.
