Introducing our co-hosts, Cristina and Hal of Travel For Wildlife.

Zoologist Cristina and her husband Hal have been traveling the world in search of wildlife for the past five years. Together they founded Travel For Wildlife, where they blog about their wildlife adventures and promote responsible wildlife tourism.

Before they met, Cristina studied wolves, jackals and wild dogs in the field, while Hal was busy visiting all seven continents to film and photograph wild animals. His famous photo sequence of a leopard attacking a crocodile has been published in newspapers, magazines and books around the world. He is the founder of Dodo Films and producer of the critically acclaimed series “The Enviro-Mentals”. Hal and Cristina now live in the mountains of North Carolina with their two cats, Sadie and Scamper, and are planning on taking them camping in their next wildlife adventure…

Follow them on Twitter at @Travel4Wildlife.
