Director of Impact and Operations, Grevy’s Zebra Trust
As Programs Manager at Grevy’s Zebra Trust (GZT), Sheila works to conserve and grow the population of endangered Grevy’s zebras in northern Kenya. Sheila strongly believes in the power of people to conserve and coexist with wildlife if they are given the opportunity to contribute to, and adapt, to a changing environment in a way that secures the future for the resources that they rely on and value. She believes the inclusion of women in this process is central for its success. GZT puts the people that live with Grevy’s zebra at the heart of designing and implementing conservation actions for the species. The alignment and merging of institutional and personal goals has allowed Sheila to thrive in her role with the Trust where she oversees the implementation of GZT’s research strategy to ensure it delivers on its impact model. She also oversees monitoring and evaluation of GZT’s different programs and communicates GZT’s impact.
