PJ Stephenson

PJ saw his first wild tenrec in 1986 on a student expedition to north-east Madagascar, before studying tenrecs across the island for his PhD. He went on to work for conservation organizations in Tanzania, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Côte d’Ivoire and Switzerland, but maintained his interest in these charismatic small mammals through his work in the IUCN SSC Afrotheria Specialist Group. He is now based in Switzerland where he is a Conservation Consultant and a research fellow at the University of Lausanne. (Profile Photo: Alexander Belokurov http://imagenature.com)
