African Wild Dogs – Spotted Phantoms

Highly Endangered – Effective Predators – Stunningly Beautiful The African Wild Dog, Lycaon pictus (means ‘wolf-like, painted’), is without a doubt one of the most fascinating animals that roam the African wilderness.

Poachers are hunting the animals faster than they can reproduce. In the early 1970s, demand for ivory rocketed with 80% of traded raw ivory coming from poached elephants. A ban was […]

Trading Rhino To Extinction

Rhino Horn is not medicine nor a status symbol for the wealthy. The removal of rhino horn powder from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in the 1990’s had largely reduced demand. During this period, horns sold for very little on the illegal black market, and on average, only around 15 rhinos were poached in South Africa each year from […]

“The Big 5” Is “Big Money”

“THE BIG 5″ is “BIG MONEY” and WORTH FAR MORE ALIVE. South Africa’s Big Five is much better for the country than previously thought. A leopard that lives for 15 years contributes more than R85 million to the state coffers. That’s the finding of a study conducted by the research institute Tourism Research, Economics, Environment and Society […]
