Hi Aussie friends, my limited supply of Bush Vet, by Dr Clay Wilson and me, sold out this morning in minutes. What this tells me is I need to bring a stack back with me after my next trip to South Africa. I will do so, and more copies will be available in June this year. Sorry if you missed out! (and I'll save some copies for the Americans as well, too!)

Normally I'm asking for you to vote for me in some shameless online poll, but today I'd like to invite you to vote for a charity whose South African operation I support. Veterans for Wildlife is a UK based organisation that pairs military veterans from recent conflicts with wildlife conservation projects and anti-poaching operations in Africa, to provide support and expert training. I've done a bit of work for them. They're up for an award in the UK and if you're interested, you can vote for them here:
