Meet Sushi, an endangered shoebill stork
In February 2013, my husband Michael and I set off on an 8-month trip around the world. Here’s one of the many highlights of our adventure…

After going on a safari and gorilla trek where we observed wildlife at a distance, we met animals up close at the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre. Through my volunteer work with a local NGO (, we were treated to a private tour where we fell in love with Sushi, an endangered shoebill stork. When we entered the habitat, the guide instructed us on the proper way to greet a shoebill stork – bow and make a squealing sound. We were so happy that Sushi accepted us and hung around for a while to say hi. We took a video of the greeting behavior – you can see it on our travel blog (link below).
