Thanks for the Nudge Lai
It looks like they might have some news on BCD in a couple of days. Also I wonder if their programe Lions The Truth is being shown on Sky or BBC, and when, perhaps we will get more news on that later. Their is also an update on the Tiger/ Visitor issue.

Thanks for the Nudge there Lai, My friend went to the talk in London and invited me along with her, sadly it was clinic day and I couldn't cancel it at short notice.....I must catch up with her to see what she has to say about it...oh how I would have loved to have gone though.
Can't wait to hear what he has to say about the future of BCD.

Update from J & A - 31st May

Hi everyone. We fly back to the UK tomorrow and then have a few days in London before heading back to Kenya on the 6 June. So we will have been on our travels for nearly 5 weeks in total, but a great mix of work and vacation. Our son David is in his third year at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. We were fortunate to be able to see some of his work in the students Spring Show at the Academy during our visit – the standard of work was exceptional. Not sure how he does it but David somehow finds time to still run our website and he and Angie had lots of fruitful discussions of how we can grow our business and strengthen our brand. We have recently made some great contacts in the PR and Branding division and are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. The power and potential of the internet never ceases to amaze us!

Just to give you an early heads up of events to look out for that we are involved in:

Bird Fair: 21-23 August, Rutland Water, England. We will be giving a talk and signing books at this event,

Photokina: 21 – 26 August, Cologne, Germany. We will be attending this event for the first time as guests of the Canon Ambassadors Programme.

Royal Geographical Society: 14 December, London, England. We will be giving an illustrated talk on Lions: The Truth to raise money on behalf of Friends of Conservation for a patrol vehicle for the Masai Mara to help protect vulnerable species such as cheetah with young. The talk will based around the new series I am presenting on Lions for the BBC, highlighting the latest research on lion behaviour and the major challenges lions now face throughout Africa due to conflict with man and his livestock.

We very much look forward to seeing some of you at these events.


I am definitely going to try and get to the RGS on 14th December lol!

Thanks for the nudge Doogs, just had a read, as you say no news on BCD but at least Jonathan has let his feelings be known about the proposed road through the Serengeti.

I know Doogs - what a wonderful if not exhausting time they must have. My friend and i were talking last night about another safari next year and whether or not we should go with J & A again! She is mad keen on photography as am i and we learned a lot with Angie so it may be on the cards.

Meantime Pete just likes Rekero and all the team there - so here's a thought .................2 safaris Laughing Laughing Laughing (well it's always good to dream)

Update from J&A dated 21 July 2010 :-

"Apologies to one and all for the long absence – mainly driven by the lack of internet on our travels to Botswana and the Serengeti.

What a stroke of luck to bump into Rebecca at Sopa Lodge at Ngorongoro Crater. Delighted to see you Rebecca after all the great contribution you have been making to the Blog – just sorry we didn’t have more time to catch up. Next time!

The Delta was as beautiful as ever and we saw wild dogs at a den and leopard too. The Serengeti was just awesome – those plains and the kopjes are like nowhere else in the world. More on that another time.

We are off to the UK in a couple of weeks. We will be at the Bird Fair all three days (20-22 Aug at Rutland Water) – we always look forward to this event – just so much to see, loads of good camera kit on display and binoculars and outdoor wear – so a great place to network while enjoying a beautiful location with some great talks and fun events. Hope to see some of you there.

Details of our two Rekero trips (Feb and Oct 2011) will be online shortly – and we will be hosting safaris in Zambia 2011 – and maybe even Bhutan and Sri Lanka, two places we have always wanted to visit.

The Serengeti Highway is still the hot topic and we would be interested to hear more of your views on that – is it really necessary, how much will it benefit the local community, and how much will it impact the migration??

We have a referendum here in Kenya on the 4 August to decide on whether the country will adopt the proposed new Constitution. So we are all hoping for a peaceful outcome. It will be a test for us as to how our next elections might pan out in 2012.

Wishing you all a happy day!

Jonathan and Angie"

Thanks for posting Doogs - i've been checking daily and wondering when they would be back on-line! I don't envy them on 4th August and i really hope it is peaceful.

They are also in the UK in December and doing their talk on Lions at the RGS in London. They do get about don't they? and have some lovely trips on offer, what fantastic places they are going to!

I too thought they'd never do an update :o Still waiting for them to say something about BCD, they said they'd get back to everyone about it but still haven't Crying or Very sad They have remained silent on that matter so far !!

They are always soooo busy but how fantastic to be busy working in the way they do - so much better being stuck in an office typing and filing all day affraid

They are very lucky people - but they do work hard Wink

Latest from J & A blog - sounds like a good book

Exciting new publication: The Biology and Conservation of Wild Felids


As a subscriber to CatNews I was delighted to find an editorial and review of a new book called The Biology and Conservation of Wild Felids. 2010. Edited by David Macdonald and Andrew Loveridge, Oxford University Press. It is said to be a state-of-the-art compilation of our knowledge on wild cats and how to conserve them. The 9 Chapters od Part 1 are reviews, starting with a complete account of all 36 felid species, followed by chapters on phylogeny and evolution, felid form and function, genetic applications, felid societies, management and conflicts, conservation and research techniques, ex situ programmes, and wild felid diseases. Part II presents 19 case studies on lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, snow leopards, pumas, wildcat, Eurasian lynx, Iberian lynx, Canada lynx, black-footed cat, ocelot, and Andean cat. As important as the list of species is the variety topics covered, which range from research and ecology to diseases, small populations and conflicts with humans, to conservation and adaptive management. The final chapter discusses the future of felids in an inter-disciplinary and farsighted approach.

Personally I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy – and it will be top of our shopping list when we hit London next month.
