Gabriella Leighton, BSc(Hons)

Gabi is a Doctoral student in the Biological Sciences Department, University of Cape Town. Born in London, she grew up in Cape Town passionate about wildlife, particularly felids, and so decided to study zoology at a young age. She has since completed her BSc Honours and her research interests have focused on conservation biology, particularly how innovative use of technology can aid in data collection to inform this field, and the developing field of urban ecology. Her current project aims to examine how urbanisation influences the diet of Cape caracal, using classic and new methods.
