Are you wondering how the above 5 photos relate? Read on to find out-
Sorry for no posts for so long, this week was very hectic! It was the Gallatin Eco-Fashion Week at NYU and I was shooting events, and I began with a personal trainer to get ready for my travels after I graduate, and then my parents came in this weekend for my grandmother’s 87th birthday. Happy Birthday Grandma, (one of the most loyal readers of my blog)!
I realized that I have been so busy planning all my travels that I forgot to share them on this site. Starting on July 31, 2010 I will be embarking on a 5-month trip throughout Africa, India, and Asia to continue my series of photographing endangered and threatened species in their natural habitat. The photographs above correlate to each place I will be. (I didn’t have a photo of an elephant so I hope you don’t mind a photo of my dog playing with a stuffed elephant as a substitute)
The first two weeks in August I will be going on a safari with my wonderful parents in East Africa with And Beyond. I have never used them before, as I have never been to Africa, but they come highly recommended so I am very excited!
Then on August 16th I leave the luxury style travel (and my parents) behind and head to Johannesburg to start volunteering at a lion sanctuary. I will spend the rest of my time abroad volunteering and doing photography at animal sanctuaries in South Africa, Jaipur, Xi’an, and Borneo. My schedule be as follows:
August 16th – August 30th Working with lions at a sanctuary near Johannesburg, South Africa
September 6th – October 4th Working with endangered wildlife near Capetown, South Africa
October 17th – October 31st Working at Elephant Sanctuary in Jaipur, India
November 5th – November 26th Working at Giant Panda Sanctuary Shaanxi Province, China
December 3rd – December 17th Working with Orangutans on Borneo, Malaysia
I’ll post more as I get ready for the trip, and I’ll be posting as much as I can while I’m abroad so be sure to follow along with me on my travels!
