My camp and other animals: By Gregory’s grace

You would think, living in the wilderness surrounded by wild fauna (human and animal alike) might satiate the human need for animal companionship.

The Other Marine Ecosystems of the Cayman Islands

  With increasing anthropogenic (human induced) stresses affecting the marine environment, there has been much focus placed on coral reefs and how they are being affected as a result; for good reason too. Despite only contributing 1% of the ocean’s surface area, the complex structures of coral reefs are home to an estimated [...]

The Cat Report: 19 – 25 May

Both the Mara and Djuma teams had an action-packed week with some great surprises in both locations.

Mercy Goes Wild

It is a picturesque journey. For about 10 kilometers after you turn off the main highway and start descending into the Rift Valley, you are treated to one of the most magnificent views in the world. It is also a harrowing road that dangles precariously on the edge of an escarpment, with equally scary oncoming [...]

Originally, I wanted to be a mermaid but soon realised that wasn’t going to happen so I settled on marine biology instead. Little did I realise that one day I would step off a plane in Grand [...]
