Take every chance you get in life, because some things only happen once.


Dear Readers,


At the time of putting this edition together, it started to rain … and rain it did. What a blessing!

Having been through two of the hottest and driest months (January and February) that I have ever known whilst living here in Uganda, the rain was a welcome relief and I am certain that there are a lot of other people out there who are just as relieved about its’ arrival.

Water is precious … even more so, water is life and is essential for the survival of all life on mother earth!

In this edition, our feature article is on The Semliki Valley; this secretive valley located in the west of the country is described as “Uganda’s hidden vale” by the article’s author, Pamela Kertland Wright.

We also look at the Uganda Conservation Foundation (UCF), which has recently partnered with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), to help build the capacity of the Ugandan authorities to protect the country’s natural heritage and to combat the illicit trafficking that threatens both Uganda’s abundant wildlife and its security. Both appropriate articles, I hope you will agree, as the onset of the wet season brings with it new growth and vitality to our diverse fauna and flora.Shaz Glencross Editor of the eye magazine
