Biography

Belinda (also known by her Samburu name Nalaroi) was born and raised in Kenya. She has 19 years of experience working with Grevy’s zebra, of which 17 have been spent working with communities on Grevy’s zebra conservation. In 2003, she started the Grevy’s Zebra Scout Program while working for the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, and later, she worked for the Northern Rangelands Trust in its establishment phase. This grassroots approach engaged pastoral communities in Grevy’s zebra conservation and led to Belinda co-founding the Grevy’s Zebra Trust in 2007. Belinda has an MSc in Conservation Biology with Distinction. She is a member of IUCN’s Equid Specialist Group and sits on Kenya’s national Grevy’s Zebra Technical Committee and Grevy’s Disease Response Committee. Under her leadership, the Grevy’s Zebra Trust was awarded the prestigious 2012 AZA International Conservation Award in recognition of the Trust’s practical and effective community-led conservation efforts.
