Megan Emmet

Briza Publications author Megan Emmet is best described as a naturalist with a creative bent and literary inclinations. With a conservation degree, a Masters degree in Environmental Management, and years of guiding and training field guides in her background, she has a solid grounding in all topics natural. But her career has been more eclectic than the traditional “bush-whacker” and has involved, amongst other things, creative expression through both written and visual media.

Currently, Megan is the Senior Producer on the 30-year old SABC environmental TV programme 50|50 and she has authored numerous natural history books including “If Trees could Talk” and a children’s series on wildlife. Megan is most at home behind her pair of 10×32 binoculars stalking an “LBJ” or snapping a macro shot of something obscure that someone else might have stepped over.

When she’s not gallivanting in the bush for whatever reason, she is most probably enjoying a glass of Sauvignon Blanc in the company of her good friends or encouraging the keys of her Yamaha concert piano to produce a tune.
