The most amazing moment in my life so far
Being involved in captures of a spotted hyaena; a white rhino (and release of another), and 2 escaped male African Buffalo; seeing a live volcano; jumping off a bridge between Zambia and Zimbabwe and then getting stuck between the borders after dark..
I'm an Aussie Expat in South Africa. I've come over here in the hope of getting my FGASA qualifications so I can show people how amazing this country is and how awesome its animals are (big and small).
Currently I'm working on research of Spotted Hyaena which are intensely amazing animals, and unfortunately have been given a bad rap (boo Lion King!). I feel so lucky that I get to see these guys every day and that, living and working in a game reserve, I can say things like "sorry I'm late an elephant wouldn't get out of the road" because it's actually true.
