Africa's wildlife are under attack like never before . Habitat degradation and poaching by ruthless syndicates are driving many species to the brink of extinction. The wildlife are inter dependent on one another. That's why it's called the balance of nature. The loss of one species effects them all and it's critical that we prevent that from happening.

Fortunately there are many dedicated individuals and organizations working hard and risking their lives on the front lines of this war against evil and greed and corruption and ignorance . Some already have a global presence and are well known for their work and their accomplishments.

The Quest for Hope is a voice for the wildlife and the dedicated teams working diligently to save them:
There are many other smaller operations working on very limited budgets to save the animals. It's difficult and dangerous work and they have their hands full just dealing with the day to day challenges with little time for much need fund raising trips abroad. And even if they do manage to get away, speaking in front of live audiences is generally way outside of their comfort level - it's not their forte.

And that's where I come in. I was born and raised in Africa and the sounds and sights and smells of it are deeply ingrained in my soul. I'm also an accomplished speaker and I'm happy to act as the mouth piece for all these organizations.

To speak with real first hand knowledge of their operations I need to visit them in the field - to see what they're doing, how they're doing it, and what their needs are. Consequently I set up The Quest For Hope during which I'll visit as many of these organizations as possible, learn as much as I can about them, and then when I return to the States I'll share what I've learned with audiences across the country.

Obviously this is an expensive undertaking with a host of ongoing expenses, and that's why I'm asking for your help. I don't want you to stop donating to other worthy causes, I'm asking you to dig a little deeper to help me on my quest to conserve our incredible African wildlife.
Thank you very much.
