Amazing campaign to protect the mountain gorilla and it’s habitat. #1001gorillas in the wild by 2018…but only with your help. Spread the word.
As a child, I used to spend hours pouring over bird books, learning their names, looking at the maps that showed where they lived in the world and wondering if I would ever get to go to those places.
The one which I most longed to see was the golden oriole. Bright. Exotic. Beautiful. Rare.
So as I scanned the verdant forest of BR Hills Wildlife Sanctuary in Southern India, looking for the orange streak of a tiger, I caught instead a magical gleam of a golden oriole as it flashed through the trees.
I left the forest that afternoon feeling elated.
