Hans Ngoteya is a conservationist from Tanzania with a passion for filming and photography. He is a co-founder of the Landscape and Conservation Mentors Organization, which focuses on promoting, supporting, and improving community livelihoods through sustainable environmental practices.
Hans has a deep interest in creating awareness around conservation and developing materials for conservation education. For the past three years, he’s worked on a project dubbed “Vijana na Mazingira” which means “Youths and the environment” in a remote village in eastern Tanzania. The project’s location neighbors one of the country’s largest national parks where he works with communities on sustainable environmental practices.
His ultimate goal is to develop and explore practical solutions to solving emerging conservation challenges, through a combination of skills, knowledge, passion, and experience. Hans is a 2016 National Geographic Young Explorer grantee.
