Mountain Gorillas and Tigers.
We watched Chai's videos of his recent visits to Uganda and India to go and view these to critically endangered species. The footage and images are unreal and it is such terrible thought that they will not be around for much longer. The beauty and power in both these animals is almost a direct contrast to the fragility of their future.
If I think of how someone feels when seeing a lion, leopard or rhino for the first time, I can only imagine what it must be like to see these iconic animals, gorillas and tigers, in their natural environment... for the last time.
Do we what it takes to save these species? How long will they still be around? Can we stop, or at the very least delay the inevitable?
Whatever the answers to these questions may be, I will see these animals, and capture their beauty before it is too late.
Anyway, back to the here and now. I will be flying to Johannesburg on Friday for a few days and hopefully get time to work through and edit the hundreds of images I have collected during the last few weeks! If all goes to plan I will be uploading these images to the Photo-Africa Image Galleries by the end of the week!
As always I look forward to hearing from you!
