A web page displaying some of Mr. Rutherford's photos is here: http://cargocollective.com/benjaminrutherford/NYAMA

 

 

I was sorry to read about the private wildlife conservancy that is selling its game animals, closing, and becoming a farm because of insurmountable poaching.

 

But I was glad to read about a reserve along the Kafue River that was once heavily poached and now is a success story. Wish they said which reserve it was...
