Rate this:
Take Indiana Jones, mix in a dash of Marlon Perkins, a bit of Jack Hanna, and a pinch of Dr. Dolittle, and you get Dr. William Karesh, wildlife veterinarian and adventurer extraordinaire. From the jungles of the Amazon, to the golden savannas of Africa, to the rocky shores of Patagonia, Dr. Karesh plies an extraordinary craft. A healer of international renown, his patients are often as ferociously toothed as they are difficult to subdue. A man whose commitment to conservation is as fierce as the landscapes and animals he encounters, his exploits put fictional characters to shame. Whether combing the jungles of the Amazon in search of the elusive okapi or evading the wrath of an enraged elephant, Karesh is a committed crusader on behalf of the earth and its inhabitants. Wildlife adventure appeals to a large and dedicated audience, as evidenced by the popularity of the award-winning National Geographic Explorer, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and the Nature Channel.
