European events to promote ‘the Vervet Forest’
When last year the opportunity came up to do a screening this year in February at the Museum for Natural Sciences in Brussels where we could have VMF Co-Director Josie to do an intro and Q&A, the idea came to make Josie’s visit worthwhile and not only have her come to Belgium for only one event. So the search for more events started. It wasn’t long after, in September, at the IARC (International Animal Rights Conference) in Luxemburg, where screenings of ‘the Vervet Forest’ were on the program that two more possible events came up, one screening in Trier, Germany, and one event in Ghent.
Josie arrived in Belgium on the 2nd and left on the 9th of February and so a week of adventure started… On the 2nd I picked Josie up from the airport where she could immediately experience the cold and 35° temperature difference compared to Tzaneen at the Sanctuary. Before going out, the rest of the week, 7 layers of clothes, a fleece, gloves and a hat became THE daily routine.
