Our wildlife education nonprofit developed the Caribbean's first artisanal rum inspired by nature and infused with the natural heritage of the islands. The rums are flavored with 100% natural, 100% sustainable ingredients, handcrafted in small batches on the island of St. Martin.
I study wildlife on the island of St. Martin in the Lesser Antilles. I created this web site to showcase the fauna of the island and to give people a place to download a book I wrote about it, and other research that I've done. Even though they're fascinating, little islands are often under-studied and poorly understood. I'm trying to change that for St. Martin.
I decided to put together a little video in support of the petition against the UK badger cull. [more inside]
I am fortunate to live in a beautiful environment, the mountains of western North Carolina, and have the opportunity to day hike nearly every week, year round. The Blue Ridge Parkway is nearby, as are a couple of national forests, Pisgah and Nantahala. It is fair to say I love to hike. There is information on the web about some of the very popular hikes in this area, but for the most part there is scant trail reporting available. I aim to improve that situation with this hiking blog. I offer experience with trail length and conditions, elevation change, and how to get there. I detail the features along the way with terrain maps and photos. Perhaps if I'm lucky, I will encourage folks to get out and explore the great outdoors. [more inside]
