Africa’s wildlife isn’t confined to national parks only. Species roam across vast and varied land, some portions of which are absolutely key to their survival. Protecting wild lands is therefore critical to saving wildlife from extinction. https://bit.ly/2EwpVf1

The UK government has announced that it will ban the trade of items made from ivory.

AWF's President Kaddu Sebunya said, “The announcement by the UK government is such a significant move towards fighting illegal wildlife trade and gives hope to the survival of African elephants that are diminishing at an alarming rate due to demand for ivory.”

Sudan, the last male northern white #rhino in the world, is seriously ill. The subspecies' survival depends on Sudan's ability to breed with the world's last two female northern white rhinos. cnn.it/2oKW6h0
