    Greetings Liam and best regards from Sylvia and Jim Franklin. Really enjoyed seeing the video of the Pangolin. I had thought that they were only in Asia, India and China and hadn’t realized they were in Africa. Hope you are well and your family are weathering the Corona Virus. Right now Sylvia and I are scheduled for the Botswana trip April 2021. I don’t know if you will be on that but we hope we will have an opportunity to travel with you in the future. Jim and Sylvia
