"I have been traveling here for nearly 30 years and from the start this place has had a profound impact on me. Serengeti is one of the very few reserves left on earth that protects and contains such a complete ecosystem and the succession of life taking place within it. In the struggle to define and describe such places as Serengeti, timeless is a word often used. But this is not a place where time is diminished. It is a land full of time that extends back to the dawn of humankind and beyond. And perhaps it is that fact that triggers in many of us some faint spark of genetic memory when visiting here. Serengeti gave our ancient ancestors knowledge. Serengeti made us human. Serengeti is the land of our youth. It deserves our utmost care, even if we live thousands of miles from it, even if we never visit it. It is vital that it remain the 'stillness of the eternal beginning.' Some recent threats have come to light, threats that could forever change the life and land here. I have co-founded a non-profit, Serengeti Watch, in order to protect this marvelous land for future generations. A significant portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to this organization."
