It is always sad to say goodbye to a WEcrew and I know for so many of our chatters, saying goodbye to Simon will be hard. He has been with us for some 4 months and it has been a great pleasure to see and watch the obvious pleasure that he has taken in living in the African bush. Unfortunately Simon is moving back to the US for a while. There are many reasons for this including issues like work and residency permits, changes that are happening at WildEarth, as well as the need that all young adventurers have ... to move on and explore our WildEarth ... it is in their nature.
Simon, you will always be a part of WE and, I am sure, that WE will always be a part of you. May the wind remain at your back and may the road rise up to meet you. I am sure that this will not be the last time WE see Simon LIVE on WE.
Simon will be conducting his Saturday Night LIVE chat show tonight for the last time, and will be making his final appearance and saying his goodbyes tomorrow night at the Fire Side Chat.
