Africa Talk at Black Earth Library

Just a quick post to let locals know that I’ll be giving a talk on December 1st at the Black Earth Library on my animal-behavior focused trips to Africa. I’ll combine the best of my and Jim’s photographs and talk about the adventures of safaris in Kenya, Botswana, Tanzania and Rwanda. We’ll talk about radio-collaring “Jones,” the breeding male of an African Wild Dog pack, sitting with gorillas in Rwanda and the impact of the current drought on the people and animals of East Africa. If you’re in the area, I hope you can come!

Here’s my favorite photograph from the trip we took in August, on the Masai Mara.

    Too bad I’m not there to watch your talks and see your photographs. I’ll would like to join you on discussions about the drought and this implications on people and animals in Africa. There are some related things here in Brazil. Good issue!
    Regards,
    Mateus

    Ooooh, oooh, sounds like the next best thing to actually having gone to Africa.
    Also, I might be moving to the Madison area for work after the new year, so the talk would be another reason to get out there and investigate the surroundings. Off topic and selfish request here: anyone know of any good sources of info on moving with dogs? What I’ve found so far has been um, basic, and I’ve only moved in the past when I was between dogs… really want to make a smooth transition.
    Any way, very excited about the Africa Talk!
