Our own Paula Wright, has moved from her world wide travels with Road Scholar to more independent travel as a volunteer at a South African wild game preserve for two weeks. Her professional quality  Power Point presentation, with ambient animal sounds (chewing and purring) was captivating. She closely interacted with cheetahs, lions, tigers, rhinos, warthogs, cows, etc; where her duties included feeding, vaccinating (cows-possible her most dangerous task), traveling by truck to pick up both purchased and donated food for the preserve wildlife-- consisting largely of animal carcasses and live chickens, scratching, petting and holding many of the wildlife, and learning about the various species, and the conservation actions necessary to protect them. Paula's next trip is going to be to work at a large animal and marine mammal preserve in the southeastern part of South Africa.

Jim Nolan, Boston's Official Santa gave us a great insight into what being a professional Santa is like to be one, the training involved, how "Santas" are assigned, and what some of the pro and cons of being Santa are. Jim also shared some very heart warming stories, where he has been able to bring  comfort and joy to many kids and parents alike  -- this is the best part his profession, what got him into it and keeps him doing it year after year.
