Cécile Bloch

I was born in 1970 in Moselle but I grew up between Alsace and Lorraine.
As a kid, I dreamt to live in Africa in the middle of wild animals. In 1987, as I was fond of animals, I decided to make my career in horse ridding teaching but I kept learning a lot on the African fauna, going through the African National Reserves, volunteering for the protection of lions and hyenas.
I got the opportunity in 2008 to permanently move to Africa. Within 15 days, I left everything in France and flew to Senegal with 6 luggage, 2 children and a dog. Senegal was my first step, and then I moved to Cameroun and came back, in 2013, in Senegal.
In 2008, when I was doing a photographic report on the unknown Senegalese wolf (Canis aureus senegalensis), I discovered its behavior and morphology was very similar to the wolf one. I questioned the scientific community with my pictures. Those ones ended up awakening the African canidae specialists’ interest. In 2012, I published a scientific article on the West African wolf (Plos one) and began working as an ecology consultant on the African Wolf.
In the same time, I keep on teaching horse ridding, voluntarily assist the animals held in captivity health at the Dakar Zoo and bring-up orphan felids.
I have been developing my passion for photography since 2007 but the African wolves are my main topic, and so are the African cattle and every single rare mammal or bird in all Africa.
