Mary Thomas (Cookie) and Doug Frohling have had a wonderful experience with Professor William L. Franklin.  Dr. FranklinThey travelled with him to Chile and the Falkland Islands to help with his research.   The Professor has studied guanacos and other camelids (like vicuña, alpaca, llamas) in Chile and the Falkland Islands for years.

His tales of animals and culture there might last many days, but he has promised to officially share for 45 minutes, and we may find out more with questions afterwards.
