Hi, my name is Sande Mulwanda, I was born and raised in Zambia and now live in the United states of America. I completed my Bachelor of Science degree Studying Wildlife Management at the Copperbelt University. After graduating I had the opportunity through the Livingstone Museum to work on a Bats without borders collaborated project assisting in mobilizing bat occurrence data in Zambia, an exciting opportunity that had me trained in geographical information system (GIS) and molecular techniques at the University of Porto’s CIBIO InBIO, Portugal. I later Joined the Livingstone Museum as an Assistant keeper of Herpetology another exciting opportunity that took me to some of the remote and beautiful areas of Northwestern Zambia and experienced the unique herpetofauna of IKELENGE. Working in collaboration with Bats without Boarders was a founding contributor to my passion for bats and I identify with the incredible works that they do in Africa protecting these sky puppies through collaborative research, capacity building, community education and many other fantastic conservations efforts. I currently have a remote volunteer role with Bats without borders, assisting in desk research and other delegated tasks. Proud to be part of this sky puppy team of superheroes!
