Chimp-n-Sea Wildlife Conservation

Filed under: Culture,General — mmrobins @ 2:06 pm

Some friends of ours, Michael Stern and Rebecca Goldstone, recently returned to Seattle after living a year in Africa setting up a non-profit foundation called Kibale Rainforest. They gave a talk about their experiences and it sounds like they’re doing a great thing. It’s certainly inspiring to see a couple so young and so motivated making a difference and doing something so altruistic. It makes me feel that my upcoming trip to South America to volunteer is actually selfish since I’m doing it in large part because I want a big vacation, but on a positive note it makes me realize how possible it is for small groups of people to make a difference, and that young people can be those people. Kim and I haven’t gotten to spend much time with them since they’ve been so busy, but they’ll be staying with us the next few nights so we’ll get to hear some of the details.
