Biologist St. John (Jo) Anderson moved to East Africa in 1995 shortly after graduating from Oxford University. He has since conducted wildlife research throughout Eastern and Southern Africa, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro more than 50 times, and led countless safaris in Rwanda, Tanzania, and Kenya. Jo is a founding partner in Carbon Tanzania, which recently became the first organization in Tanzania to develop a community-led forest-based carbon offset project, working with the hunter-gatherer Hadza people of Northern Tanzania. He has also worked on local ecotourism projects. He lives with his family in Arusha, Northern Tanzania.
