I am very fortunate in my life to have the opportunity to work with some amazing animals. Most of my experience has been working with tigers, and lions at Six Flags in Vallejo, CA, the Oregon Tiger Sanctuary, and Wildlife Companions in Rio Vista, CA. My work with the big cats eventually led me to conservation and eco-tourism in Ethiopia.

My Time With Hippos In Ethiopia
Hawassa is located in southern Ethiopia. My time here this week was filled with excitement. A boat ride on Lake Hawassa brought me very close to a family of Hippopotamus, including youngsters. I was able to observe them breed which was a fascinating experience.
