Ange S.L. Tan
Ange’s introduction to conservation and Asian elephant research came upon an as accidental chance - one that she truly appreciates and is grateful for. Having graduated with a Biotechnology degree, Ange found conservation very different with its intertwined challenges and have remained intrigued since. Her primary interest is in the realm of social science - how humans play a fundamental role within a myriad of conservation challenges. Within MEME, she went on to explore and be part of many social science researches and engagement with local villagers, implementing agencies and various stakeholders. In 2016, Ange graduated from Master of Research (MRes) where she mapped present and past Asian elephant distribution in Peninsular Malaysia using interview survey approach. She has been fortunate to be part of many other projects since and is currently involved in developing management guidelines for select Primary Linkages within the federal government’s initiated Central Forest Spine Master Plan.
