Stories from the
For as long as I can remember, I've been enchanted by animals. I have spent the last 7 years traveling to wildlife-rich areas of the world with my camera in hand and heart on my sleeve. I've learned about different species and about the lives of individual animals.
I've cried tears of joy, tears of laughter, and tears of sorrow as I watched the lives and deaths of the animals play out in front of me.
Every day I learn more about the plight of animals as well as about their victories. I am on a mission to share what I learn with others so that together we can preserve the wild world for generations to come.
I'm starting 2023 a bit slow after the last quarter of non-stop travel. This quarter, I'm headed to East Africa.
It's been over 30 years since I've been to Tanzania and this will be the first time I'm there for the calving season. I'll be visiting Ngorogoro Crater and the Serengeti. It will be my first time traveling with Tanda Afrika and I'm very much looking forward to the trip.
After the Serengeti portion, I'm returning to Kenya. First some private travel with my sister (organized by Wilderness Uncut) to Ol Donyo, one of the Great Plains Resorts near Amboseli and then to Amboseli for a few days. I'm praying to see animals in much better condition then in November and hoping for lots of grass and greenery. (see my article about the drought here)
After that short trip, I'll be joining Andy Biggs for an intensive Sheldrick Wildlife Trust trip. If you don't know - Sheldrick's is a non-profit that helps orphaned animals (mostly elephants) return back to the wild. They do this starting at their Nairobi nursery and then as they get older, they go to one of the three reintegration units where it can take up to 10-15 years for them to be adopted into a wild family. During this trip, we'll be visiting 2 of the reintegration units. I love the elephants and the work that Sheldrick's does is inspirational.
During the rest of the quarter, I'll be working on my "regular" book keeping job and editing / culling / posting and writing...so stayed tuned.
