  1. Here is the August 2018 APN Monthly newsletter: https://www.african-parks.org/ceo-report/august2017 APN is working hard to reintroduce black rhinos in Zakouma in the next dry season, and are working closely with the governmente of Chad to manage the new Ennedi Natural and Cultural Reserve in the North of the country. They are also working on an extension of the area under their management in the larger Zakouma region. Lions reintroduction in Liwonde is planned for next year, where the cheetahs are still going well. The situation is still very dificult in Chinko because of the civil crisis in CAR. Bangweuleu game reintrouction is going well, with large herds of pukus reintroduced in the last weeks.
  2. Here is the last newsletter from African Parks. Interesting is to note that Liuwa current Manager Robert Reid will take the position of Field Operation Manager in Siniaka Minia, Chad. I have tried to find further information about this news, but I did not find anything about. APN's interest in Siniaka Minia was released in an article a couple of years ago, but no official communication from the Chadian authorities or from our preferred NGO was done until now on this matter. I hence understand that there is a new conservation project in the air in Chad, which is great and shows the strong commitment of this country for conservation of its wildlife and natural national heritage. There are some important advances in OROA in the Swahilian ecoregion, Ennedi was declared as a World Heritage in 2015 with a project with APN to manage this area as a natural and cultural reserve, Ounianga lakes few years before, Zakouma administration was given to APN in 2010. https://africanparksreports5.org
  3. Here is the NGO 2016 anual report: https://api.african-parks.org/system/annual_reports/downloadables/000/000/030/original/2016_African_Parks_Annual_Report_Impact_Defined.pdf?utm_source=Updated+strategic+list&utm_campaign=00923c1f87-African_Parks_February_2017_CEO_s_Report3_29_2017&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1f080ba31b-00923c1f87-326177169 There are huge efforts to reintroduce species and recover landscapes in difference parks. - Zakouma: elephant population has reached 500 animals. - Chinko: APN is securing a core area where wild dogs, lions, elephants and lord derby elands are to be found. - Garamba: Since Junce the NGO has successfully stabilized the situation after a loss of 3 rangers and 100 known elephants carcasses. - Akagera: Lions population has doubled in less than two years after the big cat reintroduction. - Odzala: Efforts are pursued to control the bushmeat crisis in the Central Africa wilderness. - Liwonde/Majete/Nkhotakota: Big game species and elephants translocation to Nkhotakota project phase 1 was a major success. - Liuwa: Large predators continue to recover in this park holding the second largest wildebeest migration in the world. - Banweuleu: Plans are underway to reintroduce game species. Plans are underway at Ennedi (Chad), Pendjari (Benin), Bazaruto (Mozambique), Buffalo Springs and Shaba (Kenya) to ad new adquisitations to the portfolio. The Ethiopian authorities blocked the NGO bank accounts and plans are compromised at Gambella.

  8. Here is the last report from APN. As far as I know, there was no release for March. https://africanparksupdate3.org Great news for Zakouma where the last census/Survey concluded to an increase of large game species, with more than 80 elephants calves seen since 2014. The NGO is about to share the results of Liuwa census in the following weeks. Lion cubs seen in Akagera. Wild dogs, lions and large giant eland herds spotted at Chinko. At Garamba, the situation is bleak, but APN is trying to raise further funds to reinforce staffing, and develop new tactics, to halt elephant poaching which is on the increase.
  9. I let here the last newsletter of the Chinko Project in CAR, managed by the NGO African Parks. http://us3.campaign-archive2.com/?u=6da01d64147ee79181cbb168c&id=92f03528f0&e=a987279c04 APN is currently collaring some giant derby elands. Anti-Poaching patrols are led to ensure the security and law enforcement in the core area of the project. To see past issues, have a look on this website: http://us3.campaign-archive2.com/home/?u=6da01d64147ee79181cbb168c&id=1b5194eef5

  11. I would like to share with you the first APN newsletter of the year 2016: http://africanparksupdate.org/ The NGO starts again with monthly reports.
  12. A great new for conservation, something I was expecting. African Parks decided to take over Chinkou project management. http://africageographic.com/blog/african-parks-takes-over-management-of-protected-area-in-central-african-republic/ Chinkou is a huge area of CAR within a 70.000 km2 without any villages. African Parks willl control 17.000 km2 currently managed for trophy hunting. Let's hope African Parks will soon take over other huge areas in Central and Western Africa. I know they were involved in Gambela survey with other NGOs in Ethiopia. Any information is welcomed. http://www.chinkoproject.com
  13. Just read news that safari hunting has been stopped in Chinko Project area, CAR. Here is part of a message from Erik Mararv (from a hunting board, Africahunting.com - I am not a hunter and never will be, but find Chinko a fascinating place; I do however believe that responsible hunting in places like CAR can be a powerful tool for conservation in places where photographic tourism cannot yet make a foothold), owner of CAWA Safaris which used to operate there and one of the founders of Chinko Project. Here's to hoping the wildlife comes back!
