My name is Alex Braczkowski and I'm a big cat biologist from Kwazulu-Natal, SA. I have researched lions in the Timbavati, leopards in the greater Knysna ecosystem and Zululand and the lesser known caracal in the Cape. In 2014 I graduated from the University of Oxford with a Masters degree examining aspects surrounding the hunting of leopards in Africa. Since leaving Oxford I have worked for Steve Winter as a photographic assistant and cameraman for National Geographic's magazine and television stories on leopards and jaguar stories. I am currently working towards my PhD at the University of Queensland in Australia, examining the economics and monitoring of big cat populations in East Africa.

Story


I believe if the last of Africa's big cats are to be saved, it will only happen through locally led projects and initiatives.

Cat conservation needs the same synergy as that found in lion prides. Their teamwork, support and strategy when hunting is inspiring.

Hike


Writing for and talking to kids about conservation is my passion. They're the future, and the hope for the protection of Africa's cats and wildlife. There's purity when you look into a child's eyes - and if you're honest they'll give you their time.

Collaboration and partnership are two of my core values. I will work with anyone interested in saving the worlds big cats and the communities living alongside them.
