Tankoh Solomon Tayim was born in the Besali village adjacent to the Tofala Hill Wildlife Sanctuary. He dropped out from secondary school when his father died. As the first male child in his family, it was his responsibility to take care of and support his mother and siblings. It was from this situation that he got involved with the trapping and hunting of animals such as cane rats, porcupine, duikers and bush pig. He also engaged in the cultivation of cocoa and palm to generate income for his family. In 2010 he came in contact with ERuDeF during community sensitizations on the creation of the Tofala Hill Wildlife Sanctuary. He then became involved in the conservation project as a bio-monitor and he is currently working as a field guide and community ranger in the Tofala Hill Wildlife Sanctuary.
