Cory was on set in South Africa with ABC’s Born To Explore. Although the whole experience was pretty amazing, here are a few of the highlights: being part of a tracking operation that involved darting a baby rhino from a helicopter, chasing its mother off with a jeep, running out and inserting a microchip and the notching the ears, applying the antidote, and leaving quickly to allow the mother and calf to reunite; seeing penguins in Cape Town; running into Alex Trebek while he was on safari; meeting a determined and amazing principal who started teaching under four large trees and enlisted the help of the community and the Africa Foundation to build a top-notch school for her hometown; going to Maybu Records (see Searching for Sugar Man…); hanging out with the guys who made The Last Lioness. And working with DP John Barnhardt and cameraman Greg Harriott.
