  1. This article in Ensia magazine (an environmental/conservation publication) concerns the environmental impact of commercial game farming in South Africa--something I never really knew existed at this level. Full disclosure, this was written by a friend of mine--a South African who used to live here in NYC and who I birded with on occasion, who has since moved back to South Africa. http://edge.ensia.com/fenced-in/ I am just posting as I think this may be of interest to some--I am not drawing any conclusions.
  2. I've just finished reading an article about worldwide conservation. it's a very long piece, but I persevered and ploughing through helped me link all the otherwise befuddling arguments provided about conservation. It is an objective look at how two approaches to conservation have helped, or not helped, wildlife and nature conservation. here's the link: https://news.mongabay.com/2016/04/big-conservation-gone-astray/?n3wsletter extracting a quote from the article: By Mongabay reporter Jeremy Hance "Borneo, one of the most biodiverse landscapes on the planet, is in ecological crisis. The Bornean rhino (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni) — a subspecies of the Sumatran — is on the knife’s edge of extinction; less than 2,000 Bornean pygmy elephants (Elephas maximus borneensis) survive; and the Bornean orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus), distinct from the great ape in Sumatra, is being killed by people at a rate as high 4,000 a year. For the possibly hundreds of thousands of other species living on the island much less is known, but their homes — their forests — are falling at one of the highest rates in the world."
  3. http://www.newswise.com/articles/view/643684/?sc=rssn ~ This news release from the Wildlife Conservation Society, via Newswise, explains that biological surveys of Uganda's Murchison Falls Protected Area have found exceptional biodiversity. The elephant population is increasing, there is considerable amphibian and avian diversity and a large population of Rothschild giraffe. As oil and gas have been discovered near and under the protected area, careful environmental planning is essential.
