Jeannette Hanby has been guiding educational safaris in East Africa for more than 30 years. She earned her PhD for behavioural research on Japanese monkeys, and is fascinated by the mechanisms that keep social groups of any species together. She first came to Tanzania in 1974 to study social carnivores, running the Serengeti Lion Project with husband David Bygott. Since then, she has been active in conservation education and interpretive design. She has established a conservation education program for Tanzanian schools and helped create educational displays in several of the national parks. She has written books on subjects as diverse as lions, kanga fabrics, and human origins.
