After being raised by his uncle who was a poacher, and who was shot at by Liwonde National Park rangers while in the act of wildlife poaching, Eliot Felix would like nothing more than to see his community understand the benefits of wildlife conservation and the fruits of ecotourism.
A CITW member since 2009, when Eliot’s parents could not financially support his secondary and tertiary education, CITW provided him with a scholarship.
With hard work and perseverance, Eliot graduated from university with a degree in Humanities.
He is still an active YES Club member at Nangondo, on the eastern side of Liwonde National Park.
