Jackson Meets Sir David Attenborough

Today I received an e-mail from friend Paul Kirui with a photo of David Attenborough taken with Jackson (on far right).

Sir David Attenborough is a world renowned naturalist.  In the U.S., we know him for a wealth of books and fantastic Nature videos for BBC/PBS.  His website notes:  “His career as a naturalist and broadcaster has spanned nearly five decades and there are very few places on the globe that he has not visited.”  His book The Life of Mammals is described as:

A fascinating and complete insight into the group of animals to which we ourselves belong. David Attenborough introduces us to the most diverse group of animals ever to live on the Earth, from the smallest – the two-inch pygmy shrew, to the largest – the blue whale. The Life of Mammals is the story of 4,000 species which have outlived the dinosaurs and conquered the farthest places on earth.

You can also see a clip from the The Life of Mammals DVD.

Hopefully, I can post more when I hear from Jackson himself.  Given my typical American enthusiasm for wanting to know all the details, sometimes I wish he weren’t so modest!  If you’re trying to read the name on the vehicle, it says Gamewatchers, the corporate name for a number of safari camps, including Porini Amboseli Camp, where Jackson works as a guide.
