It is great to hear about innocent foundation's activities with ExcellentDevelopment (http://excellentdevelopment.com/) in Kenya! will certainly be keeping track of your updates...

I had the joy of heading to Kenya last July. Whilst the main reason for the trip was to attend a (5 day) wedding, we took advantage to head into the wild for something more than _just_ a safari - opting to learn more about the ecology. Just one example impact: It pained us to see the impact of the intensive flower industry, which is not only gambling with the lives of the wildlife, but also with the sustainability of the living environment for the local people. There is contamination of the water by the chemicals used in the intensive flower industry, reduction in water levels, smaller/fewer fish,... Amongst the more visible impacts: the destruction of woodland - as a source of firewood for flower-industry workers - is removing all trees from the hills around Lake Naivasha. This in turn is having an impact on not just the local ecology, but is starting to flow down-stream - noting that this is an important tributary for the River Nile.

We chanced upon a local conservation hero, Isaac "ecobushman" Ouma - a champion for the sustainable development of tourism (operates from Lake Naivasha, yet covers all of East Africa). It was through Isaac that we were able to acquire a lot more knowledge, and interact with so many more people. Our eyes are now wide open to the issues that are to be faced - and the hardship that exists today.

I wish JT many superb experiences, and a lot of satisfaction from his involvement in the foundation's endeavours in Kenya - and beyond!

That's just brilliant JT, thank you for finding the time to go to Africa.

Always a friend in Canada.

Carrie Collins.

he's too good looking to be good at computers.

I swear he's not from Wolverhampton - I've lived here 10 years and we don't have pretty men like that here!

He can fix my computer whenever he likes... oho yes.

But seriously? Good on, you, its a gorgeous part of the world :-D
