Dear Sir or Madam,

I am attempting to contact Bill Weber or Amy Vedder as I am planning to join the Peace Corps and would like to make conservation and ecotourism development my specialty both during my service and beyond. As they are both former volunteers and pioneers of the ecotourism industry, I would very much like to get any advice from them that I can. I understand completely if you cannot release their email address(s) to me, but if you can forward this message to them I would appreciate it very much.

A bit about me: I spent three years living in Kenya where my father was a Peace Corps volunteer. (My stepmother was a volunteer as well, serving in Brazil.) Like my father, I am an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Army. I am currently finishing a degree in business and would like, if possible, to gear my volunteer experience toward the development of eco-tourism businesses or wildlife preserve management.

Thank you very much.
