The Story of the Honeyguide
Our periodic email newsletter is named after the Greater Honey Guide, a bird that has developed the remarkable habit of leading tribespeople to wild bees' nests, with the promise of honeycomb and grubs once the humans have opened the nest and taken the honey.

The complementary relationship shared by bird and human represents the newsletter's goal - to periodically lead readers to new and timely bits of information about East African wildlife, culture, and travel.

Flying Gazelle 
What seems so normal to some can be utterly unbelievable to others.  Take Gidamuydaghat, a respected rainmaker in the Barabaig village that Another Land and the Amias Project work with in Tanzania.
Telling the Tale
Barabaig Rainmaker amused by SantaA few years ago, Another Land's founder Nichole told him the story of Santa Claus.  She explained that he lived at the North Pole, drove a sleigh pulled by "flying gazelle" and squeezed down chimneys to deliver gifts to good boys and girls throughout the world.  The story had our favorite rainmaker grinning from ear to ear.
However, when Nichole described the elves as little people with pointed ears that help make toys for Santa, Gidamydaghat's smile took on a skeptical quality.  He wrinkled his brow and asked ..."Is this story really true?".
