Hi ,.....Shailesh here from India working in the field of Conservation from last 8 years for NGO ---Pugmark Wildlife Foundation.
In India there are so many superstitions regarding with the snakes actually snakes are Holy Creature for Indians but some time snake intrudes human areas so humans killed them. There is smuggling & illegal business of snake poison & snake skin by poachers . So we are fighting for saving snakes from humans & running awareness projects on snake also. Tiger is the endangered species, we are concentrating now to save Tigers .
You can guide us & you can share your thoughts & experience & knowledge with us. So that many Activist, NGO, Students, can take inspirations from your efforts & activities
Welcome, and enjoy the Wild Earth group here! I don't think I'll join their Twitter group, but I usually write a tweet when something really interests me, like seeing the lions or leopards. Maybe you could scan-in a few of your old safari pics to share :-)
Enjoy and Have Fun,
~John aka @TucsonJohn
PS: I hope you don't miss Hawaii too much once you get back to the cold and windy city!
