     Lee Gutteridge  Lee
    Lee Gutteridge, is from Hoedspruit, South Africa.  Lee has worked in the bush for 24 years, and is known as an expert in many natural fields. He is the owner of Nature Guide Training, an African guiding school, and has authored five natural history books to date including the just released field guide “Bushveld.”Lee's other published books include: a first and a revised edition of The Okavango, Bushman Rock Art, Mammal Tracks and Sign of Southern Africa, and he is currently writing books on Invertebrate Tracks and Sign of Southern Africa, and Ethnobotany of Southern Africa.  Lee is a FGASA "Scout" guide (one of only seven in the world, at present); Scout is a very unique qualification, requiring the achievement of Senior Tracker in the CyberTracker system, a SKS (Special Knowledge and Skills) in Dangerous Game encounters, and a Level 3 Field Guide. Lee is also a FGASA SKS Wild Flower guide, a Specialist Paleoanthropological guide and is currently completing his SKS Birding guide qualification. All of the above qualifications represent the highest achievements that can be obtained in their respective organizations. Lee is a renowned trainer of trackers and guides in South Africa, and has trained and assessed in Kenya, Rwanda, Botswana, Zambia and several other countries. He is well known for his depth-of-knowledge and infectious enthusiasm in conveying information about the natural world.  Kersey Lawrence is a wildlife ecologist and award-wining teacher from the University of Connecticut, currently working on her PhD which focuses on trackers and tracking in Southern Africa.  She created Original Wisdom, an experiential education company where she develops and runs courses for students and groups in the United States and South Africa. Original Wisdom courses emphasize science through "hands-on" ecology sessions in the bush; technology through the use of photography, camera traps, GPS, and GIS; and human dimensions through cultural experiences with local communities. With well over two decades of survival, wilderness and tracking experience she is also a highly qualified tracker in her own right, within both the USA and South Africa, and is, in fact, amongst the most highly qualified trackers in the world in the CyberTracker System and the highest qualified woman tracker in the world with a Track and Sign Specialist qualification & evaluator status (Africa) and a Professional level qualification in Trailing (USA). She is also a qualified Dangerous Game guide on the FGASA (the Field Guides Association of Southern Africa) standard with many hours on foot and wildlife encounters under her belt. Kersey has worked for a part of each year in Africa since 2008, which is when her love affair with the African bush began.
