Top three animals you would like to see (or have seen) in the wild
I’ve seen a spectral tarsier (smallest primate in the world) in the wild in northern Sulawesi , but I’d really love to see a Flying frog and go swimming with Whales one day.
If you could visit any three places on the planet
Too many Places to choose from!
The current favourites are Antarctica, the Fiordlands in Patagonia and the Amazon Rainforest and Madagascar and Borneo! I guess that’s five but it’s too hard to pick favourites.
