Q&A With Miriam Vermeij
When did your love of animals / the natural world start?During my youth, I travelled a lot with my parents and sister in Europe. During these holidays I developed an interest in nature and spent lots of time outdoors, discovering the local insects and plants. Following this interest I decided to study environmental sciences, and got a degree with a specialisation in soil pollution. Nowadays I am a self-employed environmental planning officer and nature guide.
Since 1999 I have travelled all around the world with my husband Marcel, and from then our love for nature has grown over the years.
