Vegan in Malawi

Conservation biologist, Rachael Cooper-Bohannon, talks to us about her vegan life in Africa

Global Vegans

In the late 70s my parents moved from the UK to Zambia, where I was born, and then to South Africa, where I grew up, with my brother, Robert. I was lucky to spend time in national parks, and see large African mammals and other awesome animals, which sparked a lifelong love of wildlife and nature. I moved to Bristol in the UK when I was 20, where I lived for over 10 years and met my partner, Keith.

I’m a conservation biologist, specialising in bat ecology and conservation across southern Africa. I get asked a lot — ‘why bats?’ Well, I’ve always loved the ‘underdog’ and after studying zoology at the University of Bristol, I changed my research interest from large to small mammals. I went on to do a PhD on African cavedwelling bats and I now run a small NGO called Bats without Borders (, which works to conserve bat populations across southern Africa.

About Vegan Life

Arriving in the office on a cold, crisp morning, I overheard colleagues talking about how they had slept the night before, and it got me thinking about how important good quality shut-eye is. Are you one of those lucky people who are asleep as soon as their head hits the pillow, up early and ready to take on the world? Or perhaps you’re often awake during the early hours, clock-watching, before spending the following morning reaching for the coffee. If you fall into the latter camp, check out our feature to see how you can eat your way to a great night’s sleep. One of the best parts about winter is the satisfying feeling of warming up after being out in the elements, and there is no better way to do this than with a restorative bowl of soup. We’ve put together all the recipes you need to feel nourished and comforted this November, and Sean O’Callaghan, AKA Fat Gay Vegan, tells us why he loves soup season, too. Donkeys are beautiful, peaceful creatures that are facing further threat due to the horrific donkey skin trade; we shed light on what is happening and how you can help. It’s a tough but essential read. If you’re out enjoying fireworks and bonfires this month, remember to keep animals safe. We’ve got the best advice for caring for both companion animals and wildlife. I hope you enjoy the issue
