I took this photo on our last but one day in Africa, and it pains me to no end that these animals have to fight for their survival.
Thank you!

It makes me sad too, thinking about how ineffective the protective measures taken
still haven't brought poaching to an end. The wardens of these reserves do a fantastic
job, but they are a handful of people who have to patrol vast areas. They can't be
everywhere at once. :(

Really, I would like to see hunting season on poachers open - see how they like it.
And those who claim a human life is more valuable than an animal life can be added
to the list as well. It's how government officials in Australia are justifying the use of
shark nets, which are just horrible because everything gets caught in the nets, after
there were a spate of shark attacks and I think a death. "The loss of a single human
life is unacceptable." It sickens me, really.

Anyone who swims in the ocean where there are known to be sharks, well, the risk
is their own. No one is forcing them to swim. My opinions probably don't make me
popular, but it is what it is. How many more species are going to become extinct
because of the human race? :( /end rant.

Sorry for the late response, but I agree with you 100%.
I think there were some good news recently and that is that China, at long last, will ban the import and sale of ivory products in their country.
Now, if only the rest of South East Asian nations could be persuaded to do away with rhino horn, tiger bones and penises etc., the battle against extinction would still stand a chance.
On the other hand, there still is the problem of the ever increasing human population and the ensuing conflicts between human and animal interests...

No worries about the late response!
I saw that too, and it's definitely in the right direction of curbing the illegal
ivory trade and saving these majestic creatures. It's a victory, but there is
still so much more that needs to be done before we lose any more of these
amazing animals.

I saw something a few weeks back about the conservation measures taken
in South Africa with the cheetahs and how the fenced reserves aren't good
for the cheetahs, because they need such huge territories. To prevent the
risk of inbreeding, the keepers have to transport the cheetahs between the
parks. Because cheetahs are so sensitive to the anaesthetic and get stressed
out when they're moved, 1 in 3 don't survive. :( I was so upset to hear this.

Such is the mess the human race has caused, even when we do try and help,
more animals die. Yet the loss will be even higher if we do nothing and if there
are no fenced reserves to try and protect cheetahs and other wildlife from both
poachers and from farmers. It's a mess. It truly is.
