Tutortalk – Meet the Environment Tutors

One of the best things about an online course with ADL is the unlimited tutor support you get from start to end of your course.  Whenever you have a question, your tutor is there to help.  We believe that good academic knowledge must be solidly grounded in the practical applications that it is put towards.  Today we introduce a few of the tutors whose expertise our students benefit from.

Manny Mvula Msc, Cert Ed.

A passionate conservationist with a real drive to ensure today's natural wonders can be enjoyed by tomorrow's generation, Manny Mvula has built a long career harnessing the opportunities of tourism to help provide for rural development in conservation zones. 

Beginning his career as an assistant ecologist for the National Parks and Wildlife Service of Zambia, Manny was well placed to immerse himself in some of the most amazing natural environments in Africa.  His later work in the country would have him expanding his skills and introducing others to the wonders of Zambian wildlife as a professional tour guide and camp manager where, amongst other activities, his role in anti-poaching patrols to protect Zambia’s incredible animals earned him the title of Honorary Wildlife Ranger.

Though he has since moved to the UK to teach and train others, Manny continues to be involved in key conservation issues abroad working as a responsible tourism consultant for Tribal Voice Communications Ltd, who work to improve the livelihoods of the communities who live and depend upon the wildlife reserve as well as provides his considerable knowledge as a volunteer to the Zambia Primate Project and the Born Free Foundation.
