PHOTOGRAPHER'S PROFILE: SABRINA COLOMBO

Sabrina is Manager and Ranger at LEO Africa. She was born in Italy and moved to South Africa to work for LEO Africa in 2012. In 2011, she got to know the project when she came here as a volunteer.

Sabrina decided to move to South Africa leaving family, friends and sport behind to monitor and study wildlife, in particular lions, her favorite animals.

With the years, she started to develop a passion for photography that she uses both for her work in the field, to take ID photos of the animals, as well as to try and raise awareness in conservation.

She would love to be able to educate people through her photography about conservation and sustainable living by portraying the magic of our planet and make people understand how important it is to live simply, sustainably and thinking about our future.

Sabrina believes that everyone can make a difference by just modifying a few habits: stop using single use plastic, buy only what you really need, choose palm free and plastic free products and simply conduct a responsible life, so that every single inhabitant of our beloved planet can benefit from our good behaviors in the future.
