Monique is an avid wildlife enthusiast who volunteered at CROW for two years before joining the staff team in early 2013. In addition to volunteering at CROW, Monique has also volunteered at several other wildlife centres across the country including SAMREC (SA Marine Rehabilitation & Education Centre), Bayworld, Ushaka Marine World and Seaview Game and Lion Park. Monique is currently in the process of studying towards a diploma in wildlife management and one day aspires to work as a primate behaviourist.
Through her numerous volunteering roles Monique has acquired an impressive amount of knowledge regarding our indigenous species and the wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release process. Monique’s role here at CROW includes overseeing the admissions process, answering queries from the public and ensuring that all patient files and administration related to CROW’s work are kept up to date.
In addition to her study commitments, Monique is also an avid sportswoman who can usually be found playing, coaching or umpiring hockey. Monique also enjoys camping, fishing, hiking and generally spending time outdoors as much as possible.
