Chef Pierre Thiam is a citizen of two worlds—born in Senegal, it wasn't until the kitchens of Brooklyn, NY that he found his stride.

But after the passing of her husband, Rosmarie stepped into the role of Director of the Okapi Conservation Project and has quietly become the Jane Goodall of okapi conservation. Although she says the okapi are the ones that saved her, Rosmarie just might be the unsung hero to save these ‘ghosts of the forest.’
