Bernard. M. Tulito

Community Field Assistant

Bernard. M. Tulito is the Community Field Assistant based at IFAW’s office in Amboseli. He is part of the team that interacts with communities on daily bases to push forward IFAW’s core business in the Amboseli Project to promote animal welfare and conservation policies that advance the well-being of both animal and people.

My expectation is to work with the local communities around Amboseli through consultative approaches/sharing information in order to advance wildlife conservation (securing space) within community land.
