As I get close to turning 70........

...I remain eager to see more, do more, learn more. Guess that's why for my 65th birthday I got a tattoo of the Chinese symbol for curiosity! Finding this website is a highlight of what this past year has brought to me (not to downplay grandchild #eight). I grew up in the Bronx, NYC, hanging out at the zoo there - and I knew way back then seeing the animals in cages was NOT the environment they belonged in. This is an amazing experience-seeing wildlife do their"thing" in their own place on this globe.
Better too then what I see on TV, since this is in "real time" and I have quickly learned to expect the unexpected! I am definitely addicted!
The only thing that would top this would be another cam someplace where I could see my favorite animal-wolves!

The 'history' of Africam can be read in the Africam Book - there is a link to this via the Africam Home Page - but the book is all about the years preceding 'ABC' - Africam Before Campbell!

As for how Africam has come back to life since ABC, and how it has since developed, that is a seperate tale and one which, until the story is published (maybe one day), you can only find out about by searching the Boma!

Addicted? It's taken me weeks to remember there is something other than viewing the wild life....such as checking the forums to see what people are talking about! Glad to read more welcoming messages. It makes this place feel so very special for me!! I also want to extend welcomes to several other Pennsylvanians I see have now joined up-and especially a hi to Sarasin. Being a retired psychiatric social worker I know what is meant about getting away from the stressors of the mental health field. I DO have one question-is there a place I just haven't spotted in the index that tells the history of how this site came to be? The who, what, where of its organization, how people came to be moderators, who pays for all this ? I guess I just want a sense of how it developed, what keeps it going-but also who to thank for these joys!
