"The death of Satao 2 earlier this year reminds us how urgently we need to do something. When I started this documentary there were approximately 40 big tuskers left. Just three years later, its believed that there are now only 22 remaining on our beautiful planet. Our filming trip last September to Kenya reminds us how much these guys need our help."

African Roundtable: Selected Topics from an Emerging Continent (OSHER at Dartmouth)
I will be co-leading a class at Dartmouth College with Norman Miller (Professor Emeritus at the Geisel School of Medicine).
Much of our fascination with Africa today starts with the human story, the evolution of our ancestors, the "invention" of medicine, art and religion, and the contemporary relations between humans, animals and their environment. Africa is also a complex 21st-century continent and our focus will include two sessions on modern politics and economic development including foreign aid issues.
Drawing on local expertise, the course co-directors have selected six specific themes that illustrate these universal topics: (1) African Prehistory and the Modern Fossil Discoveries in South Africa; (2) African Traditional Medicine and Cross Cultural Healing; (3) Indigenous Religion, Spiritism and Witchcraft, as seen in African art; (4) Contemporary Issues of African Wildlife and Conservation; (5) the Role of Foreign Aid and Non-Governmental Organizations; and (6) Key Political Trends in Today's Africa.
Invited guests include Dr. Jeremy DeSilva (Anthropology), Ambassador Roland Kuchel (Zambia and Eastern Europe), Dr. Nelson Kasfir (Political Science).
