ANTON CRONE quit the crazy-wonderful world of advertising to travel the world, sometimes working, sometimes drifting. Along the way he unearthed a passion for Africa’s stories – not the sometimes hysterical news agency headlines we all feed off, but the real stories. Anton has a strong empathy with Africa’s people and their need to meet daily requirements, often in remote environmentally hostile areas co-habitated by Africa’s free-roaming animals. His journey brought him to Africa Geographic where he is now Editor in Chief, and custodian of Africa Geographic online magazine. This week marks a year since Ebola began wreaking havoc in three West African countries, and still holds them in it’s grip. In 365 DAYS INTO EBOLA, Anton looks at the bravery of aid workers who faced the horrors of the disease and the indifference of the “First World” to Africa’s plight.
