Thank you to everyone who watched this fascinating documentary with Anderson Cooper 
on CNN. 
We were honoured and proud to be a part of "Bats and the Mystery of Covid-19". (I believe that you can also watch it on demand on CNN if you missed it the first two times!)   ;)
Thank you all for your support always and thank you to all of our new friends and supporters!
A special heart-felt thank you to everyone who came out to my appearance at The American Museum of Natural History in NYC! What a wonderful turnout! 
Thank you to my staff and to everyone at the museum for their hospitality.
