The Women in Nuix (WiN) podcast shares the real stories of our friends, peers, and other remarkable women, on a global scale. In this episode, WiN host Annie Oman talks with Leitah, a member of the all-female, anti-poaching unit Black Mambas.
As a ranger protecting wildlife from poachers, Leitah’s workplace is the Balule Nature Reserve and Kruger National Park, in South Africa; her office supplies are her jeep, a walkie-talkie, and pepper spray; her co-workers are elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, and rhinos. Annie is also joined in this episode by Nuix colleague Stu Clarke, who works extensively with South African wildlife conservation programs. Together, they talk at length about what led Leitah to become a Black Mamba, the perils and rewards of the job, and what it means to be a role model for girls growing up in the parks’ surrounding communities.
