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.

Thanks for posting..sounds like good news for Buffalo Springs and Shaba too. Although I feel like Shaba both suffers and benefits from a bit of benign neglect. It is such a beautiful, remote and tranquil location and I enjoyed the utter dearth of other visitors.
