Welcome to ‘Moving Images’, the new blog featuring the work of The African Environmental Film Foundation (AEFF). My name is Tanya Trevor Saunders, and I work as AEFF’s Director of Strategy. AEFF makes educational films about environmental and conservation issues, for the people of Africa, in their own languages, for free distribution across the continent.
I am not entirely new to the world of wildlife blogging, as since October 2007, I have been documenting the wildlife dramas occurring daily around my home and office, which lie in a beautiful wilderness area of Kenya, bordering the mighty Tsavo National Park. You can catch up with all my previous stories and photographs here. I have also been keeping people updated on AEFF news on our website.
From now on, while also keeping both these blogs going, I shall be combining the two in this brand new Moving Images photo-journal, so this will become a record of AEFF’s work as well as of the wildlife with whom we share our home, and the particular challenges faced day to day in a life far from the modern trappings of urban convenience (and inconvenience!)
Here at AEFF, we are all excited to be a part of Safaritalk, which is such a vibrant hub supporting conservation initiatives across the African continent, and indeed further afield, and I look forward to telling you more about our work and our life in the bush. Thank you for having us!
