These words by @wildlife_act rang very true this morning and reminded us to thank all our dedicated teams, rangers, people and conservationists on the ground across Africa for the incredible work they do in saving the continent’s most iconic species. So, thank you 🙏🏼 #Repost @wildlife_act with @get_repost
Our #wildlife faces the ultimate challenge of survival each and every day in the face of an ever-growing human population. The biggest challenge we face as conservationists, is the persecution of the species we are trying to protect – from an ongoing loss and fragmentation of their natural habitat, the wire snares of the bush-meat hunters, the poaching and poisoning of animals for body parts, to the people and disease-carrying domestic animals who come into contact with wildlife outside of protected areas.
