As coordinator of IFAW’s global portfolio of wildlife cybercrime projects and activities, Lionel provides technical leadership and management support to cybercrime activities, including research, engagement, strategy, and training.
Lionel’s journey into wildlife conservation began during university when he joined IFAW as a wildlife cyber-spotter volunteer. Lionel later joined IFAW as a temporary wildlife campaigner for the French office and then as a global researcher, leading to his current role as program manager.
Lionel’s work on wildlife cybercrime and, more broadly, wildlife crime also contributes to strengthening IFAW’s impact in programs implemented jointly with governments, NGOs, or other organizations, such as the Coalition to End Wildlife Trafficking Online.
