Dr. Ymke Warren (F. 1986-88)
Tuesday, 29 June 2010

The Association is immensely sad and horrified to have learned of the tragic death of Dr. Ymke Warren (F. 1986-88) at her home in Limbe, Cameroon on 29th June 2010.

Since leaving Brighton College Ymke has spent all her time, passion and energy with Conservation work, particularly focusing on Gorillas, working in many countries in Africa, from Rwanda to Cameroon.

The Association and Brighton College send their heartfelt sympathies and condolences to Ymke's friends and family.

On 04/08/2010, Rob Little writes:
"Her funeral was on Monday and was an extremely well attended and emotional occasion (with a number of Old Brightonians in attendance). Even after knowing Ymke for over 25 years I had the pleasure of learning even more about the amazing things, in her short time with us, she has done for conservation around the world and the high regard she is held in amongst her peers and world leading experts. Truly inspirational and heart breaking at the same time."
