Meleji L. Mollel
Wildlife and Natural Resource Monitoring Program Assistant
Meleji L. Mollel joined Tanzania People & Wildlife in 2016 as the Wildlife and Natural Resource Monitoring Program Assistant. In this role, he uses a variety of techniques and tools to monitor wildlife—especially big cats—and natural resources. He oversees monthly wildlife counts, works with the Warriors for Wildlife team to monitor big cats, and is an important member of the community rangeland monitoring program. He also collaborates with the organization’s partners at the Wildlife Conservation Society on both rangeland and wildlife monitoring projects. Although he is from the outskirts of a city, Meleji’s love for wildlife drove him to earn a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management from Sokoine University of Agriculture in Tanzania.
