This is my footage of the elephants in Uganda- East Africa. I filmed these powerful giants in Kidepo, Queen Elizabeth, and Murchison Falls National Parks. Thirty five thousand elephants are killed every year for their ivory. Fortunately, Uganda does a remarkable job protecting this majestic animals, and the current population there is estimated to be around 5,000. Words cannot describe how emotionally moved I am, and how honored I feel when I am in the presence of these magnificent creatures.

My passions in life are wildlife conservation, animals, travel, food, wine, cultures, traditions, and learning languages. I worked with tigers and lions for many years in the U.S. This experience inspired within me a deep desire to protect endangered species. Currently, I am working for Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda. During my time here in East Africa, I have seen the importance of community based eco-tourism, and conservation.
