If you want to know more about the journey that led Camille to Laos and to establish Association Anoulak (and if you can understand French!), Camille was interviewed by independent artist Solange Te Parle to talk about her journey.
In this intimate discussion, Camille describes what led her to Laos, from her childhood interest in animals and nature, to an early fascination for non-human primates and her sense of engagement for nature conservation, to how she fell in love with the red-shanked douc (Pygathrix nemaeus) a little-known species of primate found only in Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia highly endangered of extinction, which eventually led her to Laos and start Association Anoulak, dedicated to biodiversity conservation in the Annamite Mountains of Laos.
Camille also discusses the importance of staying optimistic despite the huge challenges and setbacks, tells us that as long as we still feel the passion, motivation and energy to do what we do, we are where we should be, and reflects on how local community projects can have big(ger) impacts.
