TENDUA’s team is volunteers’ team : each brings its knowledge, its know-how and its desire to change things and to protect the nature.
Let us introduce our team !
In founding TENDUA, I wish to impart some of my passion for the wildlife, and the need for us to heighten our awareness, become more conscious of our acts and their consequences. What would our world be without the colour and the diversity that nature offers us? My personal journey brought me to wildlife and underwater photography, and to defend the cause of the biodiversity. The desire to feel something which will seek the best in ourselves, the energy of life, this is what Nature has taught me; and in turn, I wish to share this with those who have the same aspirations. I am definitely convinced that with integrity and sincerity, that our efforts will succeed.
- Myriam is the president of TENDUA.
Carole has recently joined TENDUA.
In contact with the misery and human unconsciousness for fifteen years, she is convinced that the beauties and riches offered to us by nature are essential to our balance. So, she decided to participate in the preservation of two fates that are intimately linked: that of man and nature.
- Carole is the treasurer of TENDUA.
As an artist and an island child, where she spent more than half of her life, Caroline has vowed her unlimited passion for nature, and especially for cats. Painting, sculpture and using computer aided design, every medium is used to create and express the emotions that only nature can inspire.
Caroline is finding her way thanks to her observations of the animal, vegetable and mineral worlds and the life lessons they are teaching us everyday.
- Caroline designed the website for TENDUA and she is an honoured member of the association.
Publisher, author, passionately fond of nature in its every dimension, Christine likes to leave Paris to go and watch wildlife. Elephants or coypus, tigers or squirrels, polar bears or tits, whales or hedgehogs, oaks or baobabs… All of them deserve our attention and respect without having to say thank you. Christine fully agres with the spirit of Tendua : to like nature for what it is and not for its economic interest.
- Christine is helping TENDUA in the realisation of communication documents.
TENDUA would like to thank Bruce, our friend from New Zealand, for his unfailing help from the other side of the planet, and for his patience in re-reading and correcting our English version, enabling our non-French speaking members and all Anglophone internauts to follow the TENDUA’s newsletters, reports, actions through our website.
