The Brock Initiative's projects in Tanzania are coordinated by Ben Please. Ben graduated in Natural Science from Cambridge University in 2001, winning the prestigious Brownoswki Prize and the Gill Prize for Natural Science. He spent a year teaching science and music in a Tanzanian secondary school and later led a large biodiversity survey expedition to the remote south eastern region of Tanzania. Before joining the Brock Initiative at its foundation in June 2003 he worked at the Natural History Museum in London as a science explainer to school groups.

Ben films on a small Panasonic 3CCD miniDV camera, and edits in the field on an Apple G4 powerbook running Final Cut Express in conjunction with two small external hard drives, one of which will contain all the archive footage he might need for a particular project.
