Sarah Bologna is a social anthropologist and a writer who specialises in conservation-driven development, the interface between humanity and nature.
Her work examines the consumption of nature and the complex and conflicting issues around the environment, resource use and climate change debates, most explicitly in the development arena. Her work aims to bring into clear focus the lives and priorities of those who bear the brunt of global inequalities.
She is a strong and experienced researcher and is particularly keen to be involved in documentary film making - of which she has experienced all aspects including research, filming, editing and sound, during the production of Encounters, a 23 minute documentary on tourism to townships in Cape Town, South Africa.
Sarah is widely traveled and as a researcher with over ten years of experience in Africa, Sarah would be an invaluable addition to any production team working on the subject of people and wildlife.
