As a child I was often told how I should behave or not but I discovered that all I really needed to do was walk through open doors. I charting my own path with people who believe in me and want to help. I. now see my work featured at festivals, in magazines avd books and get an amazingly strange out of body experience. I barely recognize myself and what I’ve achieved.
Looking at the cover of this beautiful book I know that it would have been possible without the incredible support of some truly amazing people who believed in me. From my Board of Trustees at WildlifeDirect, and my team, to my family and my Nat Geo Family. Dino J. Martins Janet Han Vissering Chad Cohen Charlie Hamilton James Toby Strong, Princeton University, The Whitley Foundation, The Wild Lives Foundation, Save The Elephants, Manu Chandaria, and USAID/DOI and too many friends to mention.
Secrets of the Elephants is a major personal achievement this year, and I see it as a new beginning. A chance to bring everything I’ve been doing together finally. Secrets of the Elephants premiers on Earth Day, April 22nd. You can pre-order the book on Amazon. It’s not just full of outstanding photos, I used the opportunity to tell my own story in this book, it’s a story that I hope many will relate to.
