Sam M. Ferreira has a PhD in Zoology with a focus on restoration and community ecology from the University of Pretoria in 1997. His working experience permeated his studies - from 1984 to 1989 Sam worked as laboratory assistant at the Shortridge Mammal Collection of the Kaffrarian Museum in King William's Town. Over the summer of 1986/87 he spent a year on Marion Island working for the Department of Environmental Affairs and the Feral Cat Eradication Programme. He spent a second year over the summer of 1989/90 at Marion Island coordinating the Seal Research Programme of the Mammal Research Institute of the University of Pretoria. He also coordinated the Richards Bay Dune Forest Restoration Research Programme under the auspices of the University of Pretoria from 1992 to 1997. He worked for the Department of Conservation in New Zealand as Conservancy Advisory Scientist for 7 years from 1997 to 2004 where projects included marine reserve planning, dolphin and bird research, and alien mammal eradications from islands. Sam completed two concurrent post-docs in 2005 and 2006 - one at the Department of Entomology & Zoology at the University of Pretoria on elephant temporal dynamics, and the second at the Department of Statistics of the University of Auckland on modeling large mammal dynamics including elephants, lions, hippos and antelopes. His interests centers on mammal and bird conservation biology with emphasis on temporal and spatial dynamics and the factors influencing these. He also has an interest in restoration ecology and the solving of ecological problems. Sam has published 55 peer-reviewed papers, 2 chapters in books, 96 technical reports, and presented 41 papers at national and international conferences and 153 invited scholastic talks on mammal ecology. Sam is currently working for SANParks as a Large Mammal Ecologist since 2008 and his primary task is to ensure that large mammal management decisions are underpinned by good science.
