Giving Back to Nature

Giving Back to Nature

I would like to thank Mark, for this opportunity to write a little about our (my wife Andy and my) 30 year love affair with African wildlife and African Wild Dogs in particular.

We (I!) decided that it would be a good idea to drive there from the UK. This took us solo, across the Sahara desert and through the jungle of the then Zaire, amongst many other fascinating countries. We even had the wonderful and unforgettable opportunity to see the mountain gorillas in Rwanda. It was when Diane Fossey was still working with them and we were one of the first [Read more...]
