  1. It's done! African parks just signed an agreement with ANAC, to manage for a mandate of 25 years Bazaruto National Park in Coastal Mozambique. This is the first Marina protected area to be included in APN portfolio. The less I can say is that the landscapes is gorgeous! https://www.african-parks.org/newsroom/press-release/first-marine-reserve?utm_source=Updated+strategic+list&utm_campaign=beda026ab3-Rhinos_Return_to_Rwanda_After_Ten_Year_A5_1_2017&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1f080ba31b-beda026ab3-326177169
  2. I visited the Paraba Barba Azul project in Loreto (Bolivia) in last October, a project lead by Conservation Loro Bolivia. This is a fascinating project which aims to protect a small, breeding population of this critically endangered macaw endemic from the Beni grasslands of Bolivia. It is estimated that less than 300 birds remain in the wild (1000 birds are captive). Here are some very interesting articles from another project lead by Armonia, another NGO from another area in Central Beni, Bolivia: https://www.birdwatchingdaily.com/featured-stories/fighting-blue-throated-macaw/ http://armoniabolivia.org/2017/11/20/record-sighting-155-blue-throated-macaws-confirms-steady-population-growth-barba-azul-nature-reserve-2/ https://www.birdwatchingdaily.com/blog/2014/03/10/two-times-the-room-for-bolivias-magnificent-blue-throated-macaw/ https://es.mongabay.com/2016/12/biodiversidad-aves-extincion-areas_naturales_protegidas-amazonia-bolivia/
  3. Here is the last newsletter from SCF: http://mailchi.mp/a1c68d8faca1/sandscript?e=0f940a5598 Remember that the Saharan Conservation Fund is working with partners in the scimitar horned oryx reintroduction project in Ouadi Achim Ouadi Rimé Game Reserve in Northern Chad (https://www.saharaconservation.org/node/187), and is currently the leading NGO working in the conservation of the Sahelian-Saharan ecosystems.
  4. Your guide definitely has a world class spot for pallas cat. Impressive to see that you scored all the days you tried to see this elusive and rare cat!
  5. Here is Last October APN monthly report: https://www.african-parks.org/newsroom/ceo-report-october?utm_source=Updated+strategic+list&utm_campaign=220d9a8f07-African_Parks_October_2017_CEO_s_Report3_29_2017&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1f080ba31b-220d9a8f07-326177169 Highlights on: - the birth of cheetah cubs in Liwonde, - big sentences to rhino and elephant poachers in Malawi, - MOU between Chand and South Africa for the reintroduction of black rhinos in Zakouma. - Sinia Minia agreement to be included in APN portfolio.
  6. In 2015, rhino experts agreed that there might be only 30 sumatran rhinos left: 2 in Kalimantan, few or none in Bukit Barisan, less than 15 in Gunung Leuser and same in Kay Wambas national parks. They also agreed that at this state, it was urgent to capture wild breeding rhinos and relocate them in a breeding center with at least 20 rhinos. Unfortunately, the decision maker - the Indonesian government - has not taken any decision up to know. Neither decided to send semen to Sabah to try in vitro techniques. I let you the story here: https://news.mongabay.com/2017/11/worst-case-scenario-there-could-be-only-30-wild-sumatran-rhinos-left/ https://news.mongabay.com/2017/11/where-oh-where-are-the-rhinos-of-bukit-barisan-selatan/ https://news.mongabay.com/2017/11/is-anyone-going-to-save-the-sumatran-rhino/ https://news.mongabay.com/2017/11/the-fate-of-the-sumatran-rhino-is-in-the-indonesian-governments-hands/
  7. @Africlan: I have absolutely no information about it.
  8. Yes @Paolo, first phase sourced its animals mainly from Gorongosa for waterbucks and Maromeu for Buffaloes, as well as some elephants from South Africa if I remember well. Next phase will mainly source animals from Save Valley's Sango concession, that will kindly give animals to Zinave. The good thing concerning Zinave is that they now secured a good budget to lead the main activities inside the sanctuary. I do not know if they also have long term fundings to expand the sanctuary and develop law enforcement activities in the whole park in the next 10 years.
  9. Further information about this very sad crisis: https://es.mongabay.com/2016/10/especial-fauna-silvestre-la-venta-jaguares-las-nuevas-victimas-del-trafico-bolivia/
  10. Bhutan made a very positive announcement: the population of tigers in Royal Manas in increasing, from 12 tigers in 2015, to 22 in 2016. Further information concerning the science is available in the report. This is without doubt some great news, and demonstrates the strong commitment of Bhutan to save the tiger. http://www.wwfbhutan.org.bt/?uNewsID=316050 Doubling of Tigers in RMNP PDF 24.34 MB
  11. The Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, with support of the Segré Foundation, is working with the local authorities from Kazakstan, to establish a new population of Kulan, a sub-species of asiatic onager endemic to the central steppes and deserts. Formerly distributed from the European steppes to the central asia deserts of Karakum and Kizilkum, it is now only to be found in small pockets in Southern Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, with the main population located in Altyn Emel National Park, Kazakhstan. The first pilot group of 9 animals was released in last october in the Torgai steppe, huge grasslands now almost devoid of people. It is expect to reintroduce a group of 40 animals in the next 4 years. This vast project aims to restore the Kazakh steppe, which is one of the stronghold of the saiga antelope. http://www.nina.no/english/News/News-article/ArticleId/4364/The-wild-ass-returns http://www.nina.no/english/Research/KULANSTEP
  12. Here is more information concerning the Zinave recovering project in Southern Mozambique. http://www.peaceparks.org/news.php?pid=1696&mid=1782 The park received more than 700 hundreds animals in 2017, next phase will start in 2018. By 2020, the park will receive 6000 more animals, mainly from Zimbabwe Save Conservancy area. They made a fantastic video to promote and present the project. I highly recommend you to have a look at it!
  13. Here is some video material related with the 34 elephants translocated from Liwonde National Park to Nyika plateau National Park in Malawi: http://www.peaceparks.org/news.php?pid=1696&mid=1780 The Peace Parks Foundation has huge projects in Southern Africa. NYC project is quite small but this is a very concrete action to recover and protect this small park from Malawi, sharing frontiers with Zambia. http://www.peaceparks.org/news.php?pid=1696&mid=1761
