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.
One of my favorite places in this country is the Duho Hot Springs, located next to Awash National Park. This area is approximately 200 km east of the capital, Addis Ababa. I visited here last week and had an incredible time. Duho is home to a vast array of wildlife, including lions, crocodiles, and hippos.
