Shelley Cox heads Great Plains Conservation new ventures in Zimbabwe

Great Plains Conservation is excited to announce the charting of new conservation territories in Zimbabwe. Over the coming years we will be opening new camps in prime areas ripe for expanding photographic, non-consumptive tourism outside of our current presence in Kenya and Botswana.

To steer Great Plains Conservations’ forthcoming Zimbabwe operations, recruitment and the establishment of a new Victoria Falls office, we are delighted to announce the joining of one of Zimbabwe tourism’s conservation stalwarts, Shelley Cox.
 
Born in Zimbabwe, Shelley developed a deep love of wildlife and of her country of birth from an early age. A journalism graduate from Rhodes University, South Africa, she has combined her passion for writing and photography with her passion for wildlife in order to create greater conservation awareness through numerous articles in Zambezi TravellerDiscover Zimbabwe and Travel Africa magazines.

After several years in the United Kingdom she returned to her homeland developing her tourism skills over the last six years promoting Zimbabwe, Botswana and other African countries.

Shelley continues to work in collaboration with the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority on the Joint Marketing Committee to market Zimbabwe. She is also an avid supporter and participator of the Wildlife Environment of Zimbabwe’s Annual Wildlife Census in Hwange National Park.
 
In many respects Shelley’s title of ‘Great Plains Ambassador Zimbabwe’ could not be more descriptive as she completely embodies the complexities of this important role and ethos of Great Plains Conservation.
