Protecting Wildlife

“I work in a small wildlife laboratory in the African bush where wild elephants walk right by,” said Emilee

Millet. “At night, I hear lions roaring and hyenas calling. As I make my morning coffee, I find myself

feeding the naughty wild monkeys and warthogs outside my kitchen.”

Emilee is an assistant ecological consultant and laboratory technician. She conducts disease surveillance

programs to prevent the outbreak and spread of wildlife related and zoonotic diseases and tests water

quality for drinking purposes. Soon she’ll be trained to use an anti-poaching tracker/sniffer dog to protect the Rhino in South Africa.
