Janet Mkami joined Peace for Conservation as a journalist. She was awarded a scholarship to pursue Secondary Education at Immaculate Sisters Secondary School to improve her communication and language skills, including English and French, to competently interview English speakers as well as French speakers. During school holiday Janet hosts interviews with different people regarding wildlife conservation and social issues facing the communities. Janet is the host of the “Conservation by Conversation” program which involves dialogues and discussion of issues related with conservation challenges and ways forward. This will spark a way to bring up new and important conservation issues to be identified and discussed by conservationists.
