A Himba girl in NW Namibia. •

She and her twin sister were packing up camp to move in search of better grazing for their herd of goats. •

The Himba are one of the last true semi nomadic tribes in Africa. They roam the wilderness of the oldest desert of earth; the Namib•

Cultural diversity is just as important as biodiversity to the health of our planet and the human spirit. •

Amazing Africa. A hyena proudly guards her supper; the remains of a lion kill, from the committee of marauding vultures. Marabou Stalks, my most favourite of grotesquely ugly birds, feign indifference. Jackal’s cringe and skulk on the perimeter. •

Vultures garner a bad rep; often depicted as evil minions, protagonists of nightmares & almost sirens of death. But they are in fact environmental warriors of the highest order, key players in the health and vitality of all the ecosystems they inhabit. They keep house, clearing rotting carcasses before disease sets in & spreads.
But vultures are under dire threat globally due to poisoning, feeding on intentionally poisoned carcasses. Local communities wanting to kill the apex predators that prey upon their cattle. In some cases poachers kill them because their conspicuous presence can attract law enforce agents. •

Without vultures and other mesmerically ugly scavengers our savannahs & wildernesses will be ravaged by ill health & increased disease. #lovefortheuglybirds

A rescued Sumatran orangutan in rehabilitation awaiting release. Palm oil plantations have brought orangutans to the brink of extinction. •
MEP’s voted to ban the use of palm oil as a bio fuel on January 17th this year because it is more detrimental to the environment than burning fossil fuels due to the rainforest destruction. France & a handful of other countries want to overturn the ban in lieu of trade deals. •
The UK is being lobbied hard by Malaysia to not support the ban after Brexit and safe guard a lucrative arms deal. •
Palm oil brings revenue to these Asian countries but World Bank reports clearly show that the environmental destruction caused by these plantations due to rainforest destruction leading to flash floods, raging fires & air pollution costs these counties more than they gain. •
Globally palm oil bio fuel is more destructive than burning fossil fuels, rainforest destruction leads to increased GHG emissions and iconic species are brought to the brink of extinction due to habitat loss.
Palm oil bio fuel is not a green energy. It is not an alternative to fossil fuels and we can not allow our government to sanction an increase in palm oil imports to safe guard an arms deal. •

To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote:
To travel is to live. •

Be Wild. •

Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.

Mood today; human chrysalis. •
Maybe it’s the offensive weather. Maybe it’s the pull of the raising full moon. •
The moon has extraordinary power over all aspects of our planet; from rain forests to coral reefs, from wolves to whales, humans to plankton, tides to migrations. •
The moon stabilises Earth’s climate & even anchors our axis in our trajectory around the sun. •
Sea creatures & tides move in time with the silver pendulum of the night, her face ever changing from pregnant fullness to breathless crescent. •
Like the moon & the chrysalis it feels like time for a change. •

Kids of Kibera.

On assignment a few years back for Medicins Sans Frontiere (MSF) in Kibera, the slums that surround Nairobi. •
MSF are working on the front lines in all the harshest conflict zones. I was documenting their work in educating parents in the Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission (PPCT) of HIV & the opening of the first rape crisis clinic in the region.
Incredibly dedicated and compassionate teams working in the toughest of conditions. •
