New Job in Mauritius
Im off on my travels again soon. This time I'm off to Mauritius to work for the Mauritius Wildlife Foundation. I have been given the task of looking after and restoring a small offshore island reserve called Round Island. The work was originally started by the late, great Gerald Durrell. I am very excited to start so expect some posts soon. I won't be as isolated as the Congo and should have internet access more often. here is a site about the island (link).
John) Matthew Stritch is a Zoologist traveling to some of the more remote locations on the planet. Having spent nine months studying wild bonobos Matt then went on to be a safari guide in South Africa. He has also worked in Mauritius as warden of world renowned Round Island and more recently he has been habituating lowland gorilla in Gabon. Matt has an interest in animal behaviour, film making, photography and writing. His first book: "A Zoologists Stumbling's in Africa: How to Habituate a Bonobo" is about his time in the jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
