Who Am I?
Dr. Ruth Sharpe (PhD)
I have always been an animal lover. My whole live I have been surrounded by animals! I grew up with cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits, fish and even stick bugs! Now I have one rescue cat and several guinea pigs, all in my small apartment! I go horse riding in Southlands and in my spare time I love taking photos. (I took all the photos on this website!)
I completed my PhD in the Ecology and Evolution of Animal Behaviour at The University of British Columbia in August 2017. I also have a Master's in Animal Behaviour from Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK and a Batchelor's Degree in Physics from Imperial College, London (UK).
I have worked with animals around the world including baboons in Nigeria, capituan monkeys in Peru, spiders in Brazil, peccaries (jungle pigs) in Ecuador, as well as dogs, cats, rabbits, horses etc. in both England and Canada!
