I would like to post the last news for 2013 by thanking everyone who helped me with my project and in special, every single animal on earth I have clicked behind the lenses of my camera. These animals together with all the children I teach inside the Wildlife Project, were responsible to support and help me during the year 2012.
Impossible not to mention Africa in my words, a place that I love since I was born, and hopefully, will have the pleasure to visit and work with, for the rest of my entire life.
I should like to send all my readers my very warmest wishes for 2014. May the New Year bring refreshment and joy to you and your families, May 2014 be filled with happiness and peace, tolerance and understanding within our world community.
Let us celebrate the wonders of our world, strive to protect them and learn to share them a little more equally, specially with children and animals. Happy New Year! Happy 2014!

The image above has been printed in a limited edition of 100 prints, numbered and signed by the author (me) and sold to a company which is now distributing to their customers as a special gift. The money we have raised with this limited edition will help us to move our project forward, but we still need to get more before we become able to start. We still have some prints available, which can be produced in a nice box with your logo up front, and distributed to YOUR clients. Think about, and maybe, just maybe you could help us to start our classes next year.

This time it is going to be two of us searching for the best of Serengeti. We still have 89 days to go!
