It’s been an eventful spring and I feel like I’ve barely had my feet on the ground. As I write this I’m on a plane headed back toward one of my favorite parts of the world – the mega-diversity country of Indonesia for two full months of filming and photography. I’ll be pursuing birds-of-paradise once again in Papua, working on underwater coverage in Raja Ampat, and then heading to Borneo to continue documenting orangutans at Gunung Palung, especially the female Walimah, who has just had a baby. So exciting times ahead, and I’ll share images and stories as I can here and on social media.
Back in May I had the opportunity to co-lead another wildlife safari to Tanzania with my good friend and former professor Eldon Greij, for the Hope College Alumni Global Travel Program. Every safari leads to amazing wildlife encounters, but I’d like to share a few images from a truly extraordinary day that we experienced.
