" I am a Wildlife and Infectious Disease enthusiast. And over the years, I observed that principal cause of poaching is hunger and poverty. And this leads to imbalance in the ecosystem due to wild species being hunted into extinction. The SDGs embraces the same cause. I look forward to changing the narrative. Ensure people are empowered to make a living without having to poach Wildlife and as well have a means of survival. "
