Osiris Doumbé has always been a nature fan. Though his favorite animal has changed from a lion when he was young now chimps and giraffes; one thing was always clear- he was going to work with African wildlife.
Specifically, wildlife in Cameroon, where his father was from. He grew up in France with a French mother and a Cameroonian father who wanted to impart knowledge, pride, and reverence for Africa in his kids.
And though Osiris spent time identifying birds at his grandparent’s farm in France, his heart was already in Africa. With 2 organizations, 2 master’s degrees, a book and now a research and lecture position at the Bristol Zoo studying and protecting Nigeria-Cameroon chimps and Kordofan giraffes.
