My latest post for the African Wildlife Foundation's blog concerns the world's rarest canid, the lovely Ethiopian wolf, and the gelada monkeys, as big as baboons, that kindly tolerate the wolves as they hunt for rodents. With the fastest growing population in Africa, Ethiopia's montane habitats are under threat as never before, and urgent action is needed to keep these wolves howling under African skies.
I'm honored to have been chosen to participate in the 2015 Chesapeake Bay Institute by the good people at the Institute for Journalism and Natural Resources. Five days of fieldwork, networking and exploration as we explore some of the environmental challenges confronting the Bay and its perilous situation in a changing world. Looking forward!
