The year 2020 is almost over, and I expect that many people are glad of it. While this was a difficult year for me, it was also a surprisingly good one. Now, as Winter approaches, it’s time for me to leave Colorado and begin the next phase of my journey.
Following our introduction to field training the day before, my AmeriCorps crew and I returned to the South Mesa Trailhead on July 10. This would prove to be a challenging day, but my one of my best with American Conservation Experience (ACE).
Following my arrival in Boulder on July 6, my next two days with American Conservation Experience (ACE)/AmeriCorps consisted of PowerPoint presentations. As riveting as those slideshows were, I’ll skip them and head to my first day of field training on July 9.
On July 6, the day had come for me to fulfill my commitment to American Conservation Experience (ACE) and AmeriCorps. I was up at 4 A.M., and on a flight to Newark by 8:25. From there, I boarded a plane that would take me to my new home of Boulder, Colorado.
Hello everyone, this is a quick update to let you know that I’m still alive.
This is a special post, and one that I’m excited to share. It’s a Q&A with Dr. Shari Wilcox: Texas Representative at Defenders of Wildlife, and an expert on wild felid (cat) conservation in the United States-Mexico borderlands. Our conversation focuses on a species of cat called the ocelot.
The month-and-a-half since my last update has been an eventful period – not just for me, but for the world.
I’ve just learned that the Chester Zoo, the most visited zoo in the United Kingdom and a major supporter of conservation projects around the world, is in trouble. They’ve been hit hard by COVID-19, and they need our help to survive.
