  1. @Caracal: These giraffes genetics is similar to the giraffes located in Tanzania and Southern Kenya. They are thus Masai giraffes!
  2. Really love your painted dogs pictures, in these lovely red grasses.
  3. Lions as well as jaguars where they are literally exterminated in Bolivia nowadays...
  4. Today was launched Operation Twiga Phase II in Murchison Falls National Park (MFNP), Uganda. In 2015, some giraffes were translocated South to the Nile to expand the giraffes territory in MFNP, from where they were found absent. With the technical consultant Julian Fennessy from the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, UWA is currently working in the conservation of the Nubian giraffe in the country. Ugandan giraffes were formerly considered as an endangered sub-species called Rothschild's giraffe. There are about 2100 animals worldwide, and their stronghold in Uganda is to be found in MFNP Paraa sector North of the mighty Nile river. UWA decided to introduce / or re-introduce animals to build new population in Lake Mburo National Park, and MFNP Southern sector. The aim is to lower the risks if a catastrophe would happen in Paraa sector. Nubian giraffes are present in Western Ethiopia (Gambela National Park), Western Kenya, and Southern Sudan. Further information about Operation Twiga can be found here, and details are provided concerning the different populations of this vulnerable sub-species: Giraffe taxonomy is pretty difficult and new discoveries are not yet all widely accepted by the international scientific community. It was formerly recognized a single giraffe species with 9 sub-species. The Giraffe Conservation Foundation started a genetic analyze of all the giraffe sub-populations and proposed that instead of a single species, there are 4 different species: - The Northern Giraffe divided in 3 different sub-species (Western giraffe only to be found in Niger, the Kordofan giraffe located in Central Africa, and the Nubian giraffe now also including the Rotschild's giraffe). - The Masaii giraffe. - The reticulated giraffe. - The Southern giraffe divided into 2 sub-species (South African giraffe and the Angolan giraffe). UWA is also working in reinforcing Kidepo National Park kob population. With only 40 animals estimated in this park located in the Karamoja region in North Eastern Uganda, it was decided to translocate between 100 and 200 animals from MFNP where Ugandan kobs are thriving.
  5. The worst about it is that is seems that the Brazilians are now indifferent. Perhaps very tired about this political and economical crisis that never ends...
  6. @pault The point is that I had lost many pictures from Pantanal, but I recently acquired one software called Wondershare recovery and I found back hundreds of pictures scanning my external disks. I am very happy about it, I felt really bad when I realized I had lost such fantastic pictures. I am not sure I understood your suggestion for the last jaguar portrait (which is indeed a crop of the first jaguar pics). I slightly change the edition and decided to darken the periphery of the photo, but I guess you would have preferred to increase this effect. Is this correct? I will try to do so.

  9. The project is over, a total of 520 elephants were relocated from Liwonde and Majete parks, including 34 animals to Nyika.
  10. Very good to know that wildlife is still abundant around Dinsho and Bale Lodges, also that lions seems to be still there. Quite a miracle considering the huge population of livestock inside the park (both resident and migrant). Good and close sightings around Dinsho demonstrates poaching rate is quite low and that trophy hunting is not important, otherwise I presume the mountain nyalas would be much less confident as they do. Do you feel human pressure is less around Rira - Harenna Forest compared to the Northern fringes of the Park (Gaysay and DInsho areas)?
  11. I do not trust at all the estimations from Radom and Southern National Parks.
  12. I have just received the 2016 Annual report from EWCP. There are some very positive news concerning Bale wolf population, with an estimated 30% increase. There were around 80 pups in and around the park, which is good news for the population recovery. Bad news come from Delata sub-population in Wollo region, that dropped to only 2 animals.

  13. I recovered many Pantanal pictures on my external disk. Here is a movie I shot of our first jaguar:
  14. Here is the last SCF communication release, which stresses on an addax survey in Tim Touma desert in Eastern Niger where addax main population crashed down in the last years, and on the scimitar horned oryx reintroduction project in OROA, Chad.
  15. This is correct. Rio Paraguay has high jaguar densities but less compared to Porto Jofre, 50-fold less tourists on the river. And less sightings compared to Porto Jofre (jaguars are more tame, there are very few tourists, no talkie walkie between the boats)
