from @africanparksnetwork - News outlets are reporting today, that China has postponed the lifting of the ban on the trade of tiger and rhino parts for medicinal and other uses. Over a week ago it was announced that China would allow trading in products made from farmed tigers and rhinos under "special circumstances", reversing a previous ban that was established in 1993 amid a global push to protect fast-disappearing endangered species. There was concern that overturning the ban could make it easier for poachers and smugglers who are dealing in the illegal trade, to hide behind a legalised one. However, China announced today that lifting the ban has now been postponed, further reiterating that the old bans would continue to be enforced and that Illegal acts will be dealt with severely.

Having watched the documentary, "The Last Lioness," as a young boy with my dad one evening, I was quite impressed, even back then, that there was such a place in Zambia. Open grassland, filled with game seemingly only existed in places such as the Masai Mara and the Serengeti, so it quickly made its way onto my list of places to visit. The park hosts the second largest Wildebeest migration in Africa, which start as the rains begin in November, so the trip seemed almost perfectly timed! Unfortunately nature doesn't stick to the books and this year the migration was late so we unfortunately didn't get to see that spectacle. Nevertheless Liuwa plains exceeded the already high expectations, with us seeing plenty of wildlife as well as add a few new mammals and bird species to the list. Lastly the Lozi people, that live in and around the park were a pleasure to meet. They very kindly showed us their way of life, and how they fish for Barbel (Sharptooth Catfish) which they later smoke and sell to the rest of Zambia. All of this with great enthusiasm, smiles and laughter all around - making us feeling very welcome! I look forward to visiting again, hopefully next time having more luck with the migration! . . . #liuwaplains#africanparks#hyena#oribi#zambia#nature#photography#naturephotography#wildlifephotography#canon#canonphotography#nationalpark#masaimara#serengeti#naturephotography#wildebeestmigration#africa#thisisafrica#africanwildlife

Trainer Boaz takes 3 month old Thor through his paces at Akagera National Park, Rwanda. Thor and his siblings will be at the forefront of African Parks’ counter poaching operations in Akagera. Their efforts have brought the number of poached animals down significantly, from 180 in 2012 to five in 2015. Only two people were arrested and just six snares were removed in 2017. Akagera’s new trainees are part Belgian Malinois which are known for their confidence, intelligence and stamina, and part mixed breed from Rwanda which are less susceptible to the tsetse fly transmitted disease, trypanosomiasis. Good luck with your training Thor! You’re in very good hands. @boazk9@akagerapark@africanparksnetwork . Image by Safarious editor @antoncrone.#k9#antipoaching#africanparks

repost via @instarepost20 from @africanparksnetwork Big cat sighting: An inquisitive leopard was recently caught on camera in @akagerapark in Rwanda. Did you know that since African Parks assumed management of Akagera, in partnership with the Rwanda Development Board in 2010, large mammal numbers have increased from 4,000 to over 13,500? Here are five more inspiring things you may not know about Akagera since African Parks assumed management of the park: 1. Visitor numbers have increased from 12,000 a year to 36,000 – half of which are Rwandan nationals 2. Over 5,000 school children visit the park each year 3. A single community cooperative earns over $100,000 per year from providing guiding services to tourists 4. Full time employment levels have increased from 18 people in 2010 to 230 today 5. Park income has risen ten-fold from $200,000 in 2010, and this year we anticipate breaking the $2 million mark! These are the results African Parks can achieve when we take on the direct responsibility for the long-term management of national parks and protected areas in partnership with government and communities. The benefits of well-managed protected areas go well beyond wildlife with direct links to mitigating climate change, creating sustainable development and providing improved security for both people and wildlife.

*apologies for the poor quality of this photo* Yesterday afternoon we were called by our guide Shai who was very excited. He told us he had spotted some Buffalo at the close by Namndinga Pool. We quickly joined him to go and see them and were met with a wonderful and unexpected first for us all at Bua River Lodge. Over 100 buffaloes had gathered on the grassy banks eating and drinking until a sudden gust of wind carried our scent and spooked them. We only managed to capture this photo of the event just before the mass evacuation! This viewing is not the first time guests have come across buffalo on our bush walks but it is the first time we have seen them is such numbers here in Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve. It is thanks to African Parks (in partnership with the DNPW), who safely translocated these wonderful animals to our reserve during the last few years and who have working endlessly to keep them safe, that we have be able to enjoy seeing them roam free enjoying the bounty of our vast reserve. We are currently running a November special at the moment offering every room at $105 per person per night.

#Repost@disunitythefilm with @banovichbrand ・・・ BREAKING NEWS: @AfricanParksNetwork - “Regrettably, we have further bad news to report from Chad. An additional two black rhino carcasses were discovered in Zakouma National Park this week, bringing the total mortalities to four, of the six that were reintroduced in May this year. We can confirm that none of these rhinos were poached and we are taking all actions to determine what may have resulted in their deaths. On the advice of a team of veterinarians experienced in working with black rhinos, the remaining two animals are being recaptured and placed in holding facilities in order to facilitate closer management; and a SANParks veterinarian was dispatched to Zakouma National Park to assist with the process, and one rhino has already been recaptured and is doing well in their enclosure. Post-mortems have been conducted and various samples of blood, tissue and fecal matter were sent to specialist pathology laboratories in South Africa. Histopathological results so far have indicated that infectious diseases or plant toxicity are not the cause of death. Serological evidence has however indicated exposure to trypanosomes, a blood borne parasite transmitted by tsetse flies, but at this stage this is not suspected to be the cause of the mortalities. Low fat reserves do suggest however that maladaptation by the rhinos to their new environment is the likely underlying cause, although tests to be undertaken on brain and spinal fluid may shed additional light on the exact cause of deaths. Collaboration among the Governments of the Republic of South Africa and the Republic of Chad, including SANParks and African Parks remains active as efforts continue to be made to establish clarity around the exact cause of deaths of the four rhinos, and to safeguard the remaining two animals.

August 1989 - "The Zambian press protested that Zambians were being killed too easily. Zambia’s president, Kenneth Kaunda, voiced his indignation against Zimbabwe during a press conference in Lusaka. On the other hand, like robbers attacking a bank, groups armed with Kalashnikovs were illegally crossing the border into a friendly country, to kill for profit that country’s animals as well as the men charged with protecting them. Operation Stronghold had become a political hot potato." Excerpt from Chapter 3. ZAMBEZI VALLEY - THE LOST STRONGHOLD , by Silvana Olivo.

Species are being exterminated faster than evolution can keep up with. A new rep
Species are being exterminated faster than evolution can keep up with. A new report estimates that the world is on track to lose two-thirds of its wild animals by 2020, a decline of 67% since 1970 levels. Wildlife being lost range from elephants to gorillas and lesser known animals like vultures and salamanders. The biggest cause of this collapse is the converting of wildlife areas for farming and logging, poaching, pollution and climate changes. Rivers and lakes are the hardest hit – and the report warns that these extreme losses impact human life, and can even provoke conflicts. However swift action could tackle the crisis and help species recover – and we’re seeing signs of hope around the world where humans have intervened – tiger numbers are on the rise, pandas are off the endangered species lists, and new protections have been made for pangolins and rosewoods. Ecological restoration is a process of assisting recovery of an ecosystem through active human intervention. This is central to the work African Parks does across Africa, in every park under our management, from species introductions and translocations, to providing security for people and wildlife through our law enforcement efforts. Most remaining wildlife and wild ecosystems today need our direct and active protection to prevent them from disappearing altogether – and we believe it’s not too late to turn the tide.

Le parc contient le lac Mburo et 4 autres lacs mineurs. L'altitude du parc varie entre 1 219 m (4 000 ft) et 1 828 m (5 997.40 ft) Le paysage est constitué de collines boisées, de plaines et de quelques marais aux abords des lacs. Le parc abrite 68 espÚces de mammifÚres dont les plus notables sont les zÚbres, trÚs nombreux, et les élands (la plus grosse antilope). Le parc est l'unique lieu d'Ouganda ou il est possible d'observer l'impala, la mangouste rouge et le rat de rocher. Les populations d'herbivores de savane sont également bien représentées: buffles, phacochÚres, bubales, cobes à croissant et autres antilopes. Des babouins et les vervetssont abondants. Les seuls grands prédateurs sont les hyÚnes et léopards.

Tourism plays a huge part in African Parks' successful conservation model. And whilst I was in Akagera National Park in Rwanda, I visited the site of Wilderness Safaris' new Magashi Camp. Situated in the far north of the park, this small camp will be on the Magashi Peninsula, positioned between a pair of lakes that teem with crocs and hippos. As well as bringing in vital revenue for the park, Magashi Camp will also ensure a permanent presence in the remote northern sector. Wilderness have also committed to conserving the population of rare shoebills the survives in this area. To support African Park's work, please share and please donate. #conservation#africanparks#rwanda#africa#alu#akagera#europcyclerecord#bigfive#elephant#roan#topi#lions#picoftheday#shotoftheday#travelblogger#sunset#instawildlife#wildlifephotography#travel#safari
