Intern - Human-bat interactions team
Aquilla is a recent Copperbelt University graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Forestry, graduating in April 2021. She enjoys using the skills she acquired to help her community understand the importance of natural resources and how best they can be used so that both the present, as well as the future generations can get the most from them.
While at university, she participated in the 'plant a million' campaign and she earned a certificate for her leadership skills as an electoral commission secretary for Copperbelt University Natural Resources and Environmental Society (CUNRES). Aquilla's greatest inspiration is her family and friends. In her free time, she likes to watch movies or football, chat with friends and play with her nephew, Theophilus.
Aquilla is an intern working within the Bats without Borders human-bat interactions team. The team is working to better understand bat persecution and engage with communities to discuss misunderstandings about bats and finding mutual benefits for people and wildlife.
