Biodiversity Officer

Sergeant Nyaradzo Auxilia Hoto grew up in Huyo village, in Nyamakate, located in Zimbabwe’s mighty Zambezi Valley. From an early age, she dreamed of having a positive impact on her region and its wildlife.

Nyaradzo graduated Chinhoyi University of Technology with a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife, Ecology and Conservation, with plans in pursuing a master’s degree. Her interests are centered on wildlife conservation, ecology and sustainability, protecting her region’s natural heritage for her young daughters and for generations to come.
