End of the Year Updates

Just a couple of quick updates. A 12 minute video of our Nov 2012 visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, featuring the Baby Orphan Elephants and their dedicated Keepers. has been posted on our YouTube Channel. Secondly, we are leaving in a few days for Indonesia to visit Dr. Birute Galdikas and the orphaned Baby Orangutans of the Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) on the Island of Borneo. Deforestation there continues at an alarming rate and is usually followed by more Palm Oil Plantations being created on the denuded land. As a result more and more Orangutans are loosing their Habitat or are being killed. OFI is trying to raise enough funds, go to: www.orangutan.org to see how you can help, to purchase a major tract of unspoiled Habitat so that the rescued Orangutans will have a suitable home once they are mature enough to be reintroduced into the wild. We'll post a report of our experiences in Borneo soon after our return. All for now: JK & JMK
