Sanjo has been a student at the University of Cape Town for a number of years obtaining first, a Bachelor of Science with majors in English Literature and Applied Biology, followed by a BSc. Honours in Biological Sciences. Her honours thesis focused on the urban ecology of Black Sparrowhawk, in particular how their breeding biology might be affected by living in an urban environment. This year she is one of the DST/NRF interns at the ADU. She is working specifically for SAFRING, handling some of the administrative tasks around ring orders. In addition, processing and archiving of ringing retraps, recoveries and re-sightings are also her responsibilities. When not at work her interests include hiking, camping and dog agility.
