About me

My name is Tim Huijsmans. I’m a wildlife conservationist and last-year veterinary student.

In 2012 I co-founded Faunawatch, an international operating animal welfare and conservation foundation.

Wildlife (artificial) reproduction, animal welfare and species distribution are my main interests.


We were able to detect the first African golden cat in Mpanga Central Forest Reserve and the region of Central Uganda, an area 1.5 times the size of the Netherlands. Our article got published in Cat News.
