PRESS RELEASE: Celebrity wildlife conservationist and the host of ABC’s Emmy-nominated wildlife program The Wildlife Docs has joined Nsefu Wildlife Conservation Foundation as a board member.

She has showcased conservation efforts around the world and in North America from the elusive pine marten in Michigan (her home state) to the savannah elephants of East Africa. Rachel is poised to bring a platform and a passion to Nsefu Wildlife Conservation Foundation, which develops, administers and manages conservation initiatives for Zikomo Safari located in the Nsefu sector of South Luangwa National Park in Eastern Zambia.
