  1. One would have thought the recent Ebola epidemic would have knocked sense into more people on this matter
  2. Sickening - African vultures will go the way of the their Asian cousins if this menace is not reigned in soon
  3. I visited Imire ranch 5 years ago and had a great time
  4. Its long overdue - Vietnam is a black hole into which too many endangered species are disappearing.
  5. I really fear for wildlife in this country as the nation continues to be driven onto the ground by Mugabe's mob
  6. Amazing to think Somalia had so many elephants not that long ago. I wonder how many cling on now??
  7. Very alarming in what should be a highly protected area:(
  8. I hope the authorities make an example of those responsible. The brazen nature of this crime means these people are a threat to many species in this region
  9. Africa's lakes have always coped with rapid climate change. The problem nowadays is the massive pressures placed on these lakes from an ever growing human population with its attendant problems of pollution,drainage, damming and excessive water abstraction.
  10. Per head - Vietnam is probably the most destructive country on earth when it comes to being a black hole for endangered species across Asia and Africa. The country should be boycotted until they get their act together
  11. Theres a pic from late last year of one in this region in the 2015 report of the Chimbo organisation - for some reason I can't paste the address here but a quick google will bring it up. Looks to be a very promising region for all types of wildlife
  12. Apparently some were camera trapped in 2014 according to an article in the spring 2016 edition of Cat News. I wonder is the population viable with a view to the medium/long term??
  13. The best way to honor these heroes is to eradicate these groups who make like a misery for all
  14. Didn't the DRC not sign up to commitments to protect these forests in Paris last year??
  15. Begs the question - What the hell does China want with all these elephants??
