Sorry for the hiatus - I'm back, and want to share a story best told in photos. A few weekends ago, I had the honor of being the Assistant Best Man in a traditional Samburu wedding near Wamba, Kenya. The groom, Jeremiah, is a wildlife scout I met while visiting Shivani's lion research and conservation project.
Towards the end of August I visited other AWF’s large carnivore projects. The idea was that I could learn from other well established projects and see how different/similar land-use practices between East Africa and South Africa are. The projects include the lion project in the Maasai Steppe Heartland (Tanzania) and the wild dog project in the Samburu Heartland (Kenya).
Do any of you use Twitter? I’m exploring connecting with AWF supporters and conservation partners through Twitter, which is a network where people keep each other posted on what they're doing at the moment.
Thanks to my smart phone (a blessing and a curse), I can send quick updates on my adventures and AWF news directly from the field.
“There is a mystery behind that masked gray visage, an ancient life force, delicate and mighty, awesome an enchanted, commanding the silence ordinarily reserved for mountain peaks, great fires, and the sea.”
