An Economy of Scales…

As one of the most illegally trafficked animal species in the world, the pangolin is hunted for both its meat and scales. It is estimated that tens of thousands of the eight species of pangolins are illegally traded across the globe each year. This Ground Pangolin (Manis temminckii) is fortunate to be living in the heart of the Okavango Delta.

Hunda Island, Okavango Delta, Botswana.

Race for Survival…

Who will win in this race for survival? With fewer than 12,500 individuals left in the wild, the Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is in a race for its very existence and perhaps in the long run on the losing end of this battle. With extremely high cub mortality rates, loss of habitat and poor defences in their interaction with other predators and with humans, the cheetah will unfortunately be one of the next major species to be in need of an intervention in the coming years.

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.
