Phillip and Yulia were part of our staff on our Antarctic Whales expedition in March 2016. "Sperm whales were devastated by the catches -- 400,000 in the Southern Hemisphere, 315,000 in the North Pacific, and that doesn't include the huge number taken before 1900," Phillip Clapham, who co-authored the paper with his wife Yulia Ivashchenko, told Discovery News." http://www.seeker.com/new-investigation-finds-japan-repeatedly-falsified-whaling-reports-2004275176.html?xrs=RebelMouse_fb

NEWS from Doug and Gail Cheeseman now leading our safari in Kenya: “We witnessed about 40,000 Wildebeest and about 2,000 zebra crossing the Mara River today. It took almost an hour for that many animals to cross so they can reach fresh grass. The huge crocodiles that usually stalk the animals as they cross were overwhelmed with so many and didn’t score a meal. Everyone was amazed with the spectacle, even Gail and me and our local guides who have all seen many crossings.” ‪#‎marariver‬ ‪#‎maasaimara‬ ‪#‎kenya‬ ‪#‎kenyatour‬

NEWS from Doug and Gail Cheeseman now leading our safari in Tanzania: “Our group arrived at Ndutu on the Serengeti Plains and right away found three cheetah females. One just caught a Thompson’s Gazelle and was sharing it with her ten-month-old cub. The second was resting under an acacia tree with one twelve-month-old cub. And the third mother Cheetah had two five-week-old cubs. We went on for more cat watching – the Marsh Pride of nine lionesses feeding on a freshly killed Masai Giraffe as two large male lions joined the meal.” http://www.cheesemans.com/region/africa

NEWS from Nicole LaRoche now on our safari in the Norwegian Arctic! “I write from the northern most islands of Svalbard, where we just spent the morning with a beautiful pair of Polar Bears! We watched as they slept after eating a big meal and then one wandered along the coast. We are enjoying wonderful weather so far!”

SPOTLIGHT ON NATURE: Located almost smack in the middle of South America is the world’s largest tropical wetland: the Pantanal. During the rainy season from Nov to Mar, water can rise two to five meters, draining from the surrounding areas into this depression in the earth’s crust. Water is then slowly released to the ocean through the Paraguay and other river systems until the wetlands are dry again. The Pantanal ecosystem covers an area of about 65,000 sq mi and is thought to be home to 1,000 bird species, 400 fish, 300 mammals, 480 reptiles, and over 3,500 plants. South America’s "Big Five" can be found there – Jaguar, Giant Anteater, Giant Otter, Ocelot, and South American Tapir, which we hope to see on our upcoming Pantanal tours in Aug and Sep 2017. http://www.cheesemans.com/region/south-america
