How many Chris Gregory’s in Jacksonville?

Since the name of my blog is Chris Gregory in Jax which is slang for Jacksonville, FL, I thought it would be fun to look up how many more Chris Gregory’s there are in Jacksonville.

There is this guy that is a grad student at Jacksonville University but his profile is boring. Other than that there isn’t much out there so I expanded my search beyond Jacksonville and found some colorful characters.

My favorite is this photojournalist.  There are a lot of photo websites but this guy has really good composition and some of the shots he takes are very technical.  Thanks for making Chris Gregory look good my friend.

Here is a blog from a Chris Gregory that is obsessed with Bob Dylan and run on sentence structure=)  Someone please introduce him paragraphs please.

Here is an interesting Chris Gregory that apparently is head farrier which for you city folks is someone that does horseshoeing.

Another photographer.  Maybe I missed my calling.


Its rather interesting looking up other Chris Gregory’s.  I’ll come back to this post as I find other colorful characters out there.

Elephant Immuno-Contraception

This video was sent by our friend Audrey Delsink (Auds) who is working on the game preserve Makalali which my wife and I along with several friends have had a pleasure of visiting on several occasions.  This video explains an alternative to the practice of “Culling” or killing elephants to control herd size.  Culling is a controversial practice that many game preserves employ to keep their elephant populations from getting out of control.  If you have ever seen the path of destruction that a herd of elephants can make on the vegetation of a preserve you will know why there is such a need for controlling the population.  Auds has been practicing a revolutionary form of herd management using elephant contraceptives.    When my wife and I first heard about this from Auds we had visions of helicopters flying in with black suited rangers fast roping down to the scene of elephant copulation with a giant condom in hand.  We were glad to find out that it was an injection that the female elephants received and then were closely monitored by Auds and her team.  The study is leading the way to a more humane way to control elephant populations throughout Africa.
