Very pleased to be part of this gang.
I was a police officer in the UK and served 25 years before having a change of heart and retraining as a Guide. I've worked in many countries around the world, taking people up Kilimanjaro and Machu Picchu but also working on three-month long expeditions in Borneo on conservation projects. I have truly been touched by the beauty on Earth, its people, animals and environments.
During 18 years as a guide, I have witnessed massive deforestation and changes in environments and loss of bio-diversity. I have written on this in magazines and published my own fiction novel, Stonechild, where the famous statues of London come to life with their serious message on saving the planet.
I am pleased to see things ramping up such as sites like Wildhub, the momentum of the youth movement and more and more people expressing the need for change, which I believe will come. Big businesses are changing, governments will be forced to act and we are good at innovation and so I am positive for the eventual outcome. Reaching equality on all levels will also be the key.
