Led by zoo and wildlife veterinarian, writer, and educator Dr. Lucy Spelman, this 3-week trip to South Africa is designed to give artists an inside look at the ripple effect of the wildlife trade on the health and well-being of the animal being traded, as well as other animals, including humans. The focus will be four species in big trouble from the wildlife trade: pangolins, lions, elephants, and rhinos. Space is LIMITED to 7 travelers.
