Born and raised in the US, Axel began his wildlife career at the University of Alaska and the University of Connecticut where he received his Bachelors Degree in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. After graduating he moved to Alberta, Canada to research Grizzly Bears.
With a lifelong passion of African wildlife, Axel moved to South Africa in 2013 where he attended the University of Pretoria to study Wildlife Management & Conservation for his Honors and Masters degrees. His initial work was studying the rare and endangered Suni antelope as well as the Spotted Hyena. He has gone on to become an authority on both species, authoring the IUCN Red Data Assessments for both animals in Southern Africa.
Having witnessed first-hand the troubling reality that our planet's wildlife is facing, Axel co-founded Wild Tomorrow Fund to make deeper, longer lasting conservation changes. He works alongside some of the top conservationists and researchers to protect and better understand threatened species and ecosystems in South Africa.
Join us on November 14th as he shares about his experience over craft beers and delicious bites at Beat Culture Brewery.
