Herper of the Week: Hiral Naik

20160403_121355

Each week a “Herper” of the Week is chosen. These individuals come from all sorts of backgrounds but they all have one common interest – “herps” (reptiles and amphibians). Hopefully, you will learn about them and their important work. This week’s Herper if Hiral Naik, a conservationist from South Africa.

Hiral Naik earned her Master’s of Science degree in Ecology, Environment and Conservation from the University of Witwatersrand. Her research was on the evolutionary pattern of the diets of snakes in the family Lamprophiidae.

She is currently a blogger for Conservation Careers, where she interviews conservationists and writes articles about them. She is a Project Coordinator with Wildserv, where she is working to get groups to help remove invasive species and plant native trees instead. Lastly, she is a communications coordinator with Save the Snakes.
