Bronwyn obtained her Bachelor of Science (BSc) Degree from the University of Cape Town in 2004. She furthered her studies at Rhodes University, obtaining a BSc (Hons) and a Masters Degree in Ichthyology and Fisheries Science.
With a passion for the ocean, she started her career in the marine conservation field in 2008, focusing on reducing bycatch of seabirds in local and international fisheries. This type of human-wildlife conflict and stakeholder engagement experience puts her in a good position for her new role at HWS.
She has a strong scientific and conservation background, having worked in this field for over 10 years. She has acquired an extensive skill set during this time period which includes project management, financial management, mentoring and management of staff, community engagement, facilitation skills, monitoring and evaluation, environmental education and research experience.
Bronwyn joined HWS in January 2018, as the Operations Manager and Area Manager for the South East region.
