Born in 1979 and single, Eugene has a high school education. He is planning to pursue an undergraduate course in tourism and conservation.
Involvement in Conservation and Tourism
From an early age Eugene loved nature. His parents work at the national park contributed to his passion for animals. When he watched the movie "Gorillas in the Mist ", he was especially moved and motivated to find a way to work in areas where he could contribute to saving the environment and conservation.
"For 7 months I cared for a rescued baby gorilla, who I learned to see as my child. I have also worked with different researchers on gorilla projects, the most recent being a study on the impact of tourism on gorilla behavior."
I have supported and encouraged members of my family to pursue further education, as well as supporting myself. I am proud of my English speaking skills, something I was able to develop through working in the park.
His message to the world
"The world should know more about nature and gorillas and how well we can conserve and protect them. Together, through this care, we can erase the worries of extinction. The world should also know more about the treasures of Rwanda and of our experiences."
"To continue the kind of work I do now, pursue further studies, and become a resourceful ambassador for my country as I continue to meaningfully contribute to conservation and help my family develop."
