Salisha Chandra

Born and raised in Kenya, Salisha co-leads WE’s Understanding & Adapting program. She has a deep respect for the environment and a passion for both cultural and ecological conservation, having left her corporate career in 2013 to delve into environmental work with a focus on using her entrepreneurial mindset and experience to conserve wildlife. Her research and interests focus on how best to understand, measure, and enhance conservation impact. Salisha dubs herself a rebel with too many causes – an activist, a conservationist, and an adventurer – dedicated to finding sustainable solutions to help people coexist with wildlife.
