My name is Chris Wasserman. I am the owner of this site.
I appreciate this opportunity to share my passion about African wildlife by using my knowledge and experience gained from going on African safaris to create this website.
I hope to grow this site into a place that can inform and educate people about the wonders of African wildlife. This is my attempt to provide a resource for conservation, education and public awareness.
I live in sunny South Africa and I earn my living from being a professional accountant and auditor. When I became a chartered accountant in the early 1990s computers were expensive mainframes owned only by very large businesses.
Because I wanted experience with the largest Enterprise Resource Planning software company in the world (SAP R/3), I had no choice but to work at big corporate enterprises like Unilever and South African Airways.
Since that time, the internet has transformed our lives. We are living in a time where we can use the power of
wildlife imagery to inspire the world to discover, value and protect
Look at this amazing video of an Osprey fishing for its prey.
Now if that type of sight do not fill you with a sense of wonder and amazement you have probably landed on the wrong website.
Born in Namibia and growing up in South Africa I have always been surrounded by African wildlife in our many nature reserves and game parks.
I have been interested in nature and wildlife for as long as I can remember and I love to spend as much time as I can in the African bush.
Wildlife conservation is very important to me and I am passionate about preserving our wildlife heritage for future generations. If current trends continue Africa will lose a significant proportion of its remaining wildlife during this century.
There is nothing that gets me angrier than seeing one of our rhinos with half its face cut off because of sheer greed.
Over the years I managed to do find answers to many of my questions by through studying the work of wildlife experts and doing several courses, which were aligned with the curricula set by the Field Guides Association of Southern Africa.
These courses usually combined lectures from the wildlife experts with field trips to various nature and game reserves.
We are passionate about connecting people with the natural world and want to ensure more people experience and are inspired by African wildlife.
Hopefully many of you will join us in our mission to learn about the Africa’s endangered animals, reveal what what makes them special and importantly why we should protect them.
