After a long-awaited start, Brittany joined the Woodrow team in January 2024 as an Ecologist within the Botany team. She hails from South Africa where she completed her tertiary education at the University of Cape Town and obtained her MSc in Pollination biology, focusing on Ericaceae (heath family). She went on to work for the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) surveying for and monitoring endangered wildflowers in South Africa. She then spent a further eight years working for a conservation NPO on the southern coast of South Africa. Here she honed her skills in a myriad of different biomes and landscape types including, endemic fynbos, forests, dune systems, rivers and estuaries as well as in the social and human-animal conflict spaces. In her spare time, Brittany enjoys hiking and has an array of creative outlets. She also does website design and dabbles in illustrations, both traditional and digital.
