Cynthia Tuthill, PhD is an avid environmentalist and pilot who retired from her successful biotech company to spend more time playing with her grandchildren and traveling with her husband. Cynthia and Jim embarked on their first trip to Africa in 2003, and returned with the news that Africa was embedded in their hearts. Safari travel in Africa became an annual pilgrimage, and they have spent weeks each year since in Zambia, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, and have just returned from their 13th trip to the continent. Cynthia has displayed her photographs of the people of Africa – with their inspirational infectious optimism - in an art show in Springdale, Utah, and both Cynthia and Jim have volunteered to assist in anti-poaching efforts and community and educational outreach at “Conservation Lower Zambezi” in Zambia. Their travels in Africa have been lovingly described in Cynthia’s book “Letters from Africa,” and their photos are posted at pbase.com/tuthillx2/travel
