Siyat A. Buthul

Siyat has been involved in conservation for as long as he can remember. He is the head of the ranger team based in Bura conservancy. He became interested in conservation ten years ago when he joined the Arawale hirola community conservancy in 2006. Since then he has been very helpful in data collection, human wildlife incident reporting and especially coordinating patrols to curb poaching in the area. His dedicated contributions to conservation is a great asset to the project in Bura conservancy.
