Jeanne Legras

Primatologist

Park Management

Passionate about primates, Jeanne spent the last few years in Guinea at a chimpanzee sanctuary. She then joined the research department of African Parks before being promoted to the position of primatologist, responsible for the gorilla habituation site. She also supports the tourism department and works with communities to train them for careers in forest product management, which she has gained from her years of experience in remote areas.
