In honor of International Women’s Day last month, Travel’n On will introduce Camille Jackson, an officer in the Economic Policy Staff in the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of African Affairs, who has worked on development policy, finance, health and other issues related to women in Africa. Then, we’ll go “birding” with Gavin Shire, VP of Communications with the American Bird Conservancy, who will discuss the growth of bird-watching tourism, some of the best places to go bird-watching, and some of the bird conservation issues throughout the Americas. Finally, you’ll meet this month’s Travel Angels, Corliss Hill and Tabeier Shine. In response to Hurricane Katrina these childhood friends formed T.R.I.P., a nonprofit organization that travels to low-income, predominantly African American inner cities in the U.S. to help rebuild communities and inspire hope among its residents. **Please note that we will begin broadcasting as WORLD FOOTPRINTS Radio as of next week. We look forward to you joining our journey to leave positive footprints.
