I've made the cardinal sin of blogging by letting this blog sit unupdated for so long. My thoughts have often turned to this blog but I have purposefully neglected it due to worrying about it being a conflict of interest once I started working back at the Zoo. So, for the last 3.5 years, I've just thought about blog posts that I would like to write but I haven't actually written them. I've thought of picking this blog back up many times but I kept putting it off. In order to continue this blog, I'll need to shift the focus slightly to make it a little bit more of a lifestyle blog that happens to focus on saving animals in the wild since that is what I'm passionate about and want to share with others.
Last week, we had our annual Conservation Gala. National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore was the event speaker and I think I was the only person in the tent that had tears streaming down my face during his entire presentation. He spoke about how some of his photos changed entire nation's policy toward their native species. THAT is the kind of thing that I want to make sure keeps happening in the world.
Because of that, it's time to pick up where I left off 3.5 years ago and continue to educate about wildlife conservation!
Hi! I'm Brittany and I started this blog to share my love of animals and to try and help save them in the wild.
