Many, including myself, who have been to Africa and been a part of the totally wild environment, filled with a noah's ark 's worth of animal treasures, do not return to their homes the same.
Something way down has been touched, and the world is a different place.
Sometimes I think I was at home there. Other times I think it reflects a world without human clutter and clatter. Then there are the moments I shudder in fear over its absence in the future (highly likely), trying to understand why I care (emotionally).
I think there is something the African wildness balances for me. A base of solid life, around which I can spin through all the chaos of the 21st century life of humans.
I could go on.
What I'd like to share are my readings about wildlife from African sources I have learned to love, and share my ongoing search of a wildlife conservation group to work for and contribute my time and (limited) talents to supporting them in their mission.
Future commentary will be limited to the east african countries I know best - kenya, botswana, south africa, tanzania, and their neighbors.
Most notes will cover articles from the Africa Geographic and SWARA (published by the East Africa Wild Life Society in Nairobi, Kenya).
Hope you enjoy it.
