Good Morning Roaneric

Indeed, Bushvet is a great book.

I've also bought this book some 2 years ago, could not put it down.

Pity the end was so negative.
If you take in consideration all his effort he has put in, to do the best for Botswana wild life.

I have just bought this book.
Really struggled to get a copy.

Haven't started reading it yet, but will do so shortly.

I am busy with it at the moment. It is perfect holiday reading. (Not that I am on holiday :wink: ) The fact that the narrative is by Tony Park adds to its readability.

I would give a high recommendation for young folk who wish to know more about conservation type of work.

I have just read this - while on holiday :D
It's well worth reading.

It is a shame that Clay ended up being treated the way he was.

My family and I spend 2 nights with Clay in Kasane in 2008. Larger than life character who I'm sure rubbed a few people up the wrong way. I have no idea what happened and why he was deported , but I'm sure there is his story , their story and the truth !

RIP Clay !

I just did a quick Google search.
Didn't realise Clay had passed away a few years ago.
Sorry to hear.
