Vicki Fishlock


My name is Vicki Fishlock; I’m the Resident Scientist at the Amboseli Elephant Research Project (AERP), the longest-running study of wild elephants in the world. I joined AERP in January 2011 to study social disruption amongst drought survivors. Working in Amboseli is the realisation of a life-long ambition, and a big change from my previous work in the dense rainforests of Central Africa. Like many, I’ve been fascinated by elephants and by Africa since childhood, and I’ve been lucky enough to study both gorillas and elephants in Congo Brazzaville.
