We’re Mark & CeCe Sieffert. We have just completed our masters’ degrees at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Mark in Agroecology and CeCe in Conservation Biology and Sustainable Development.) We now live in Washington, D.C. and are looking for work in our chosen fields.
This blog first began when we took a year off to travel in 2008-2009. During those thirteen months, we visited 30 countries in 13 months. It was life-changing. You should do it too.
This blog also documents our work in 2011 with the International Crane Foundation at the Cao Hai Nature Reserve in Guizhou Province, China, which is the wintering ground for the endangered black-necked crane.
We first met in Boston and moved to Baltimore in 2003, where we lived for five years. After the ’08-’09 trip, we moved to Madison, Wisconsin to get our fill of cheese curds, ice fishing and democratic rallies.
Milo is our cat. He is a Scottish Fold, with small, folded ears. He has only one eye but seems to be doing well with his disability. He’s a big fan of yoga and enjoys spending his summers on the coast of Maine. If you want to see more pictures of him (and who doesn’t?) click here.
