The African Wild Dog is considered an Endangered species and populations are in decline throughout Africa. Human-Wildlife conflict is one of the major threats to the species - ACE is excited to work with a new conservation initiative in Namibia that aims to tackle this issue.

Follow the complete story of a successful capture and relocation of serval cats and a civet at the Chipangali Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. Project manager Kevin Wilson tells us about the initial call from a local farmer whose geese were being killed by some feisty serval cats and Kevin's plans for intervention to prevent the servals being shot. The Chipangali team successfully caught the serials - and a surprise civet - and successfully relocated them to a National Park.

Should “charismatic” wildlife species have UNESCO World Heritage status? The death of Cecil the Lion has sparked public outrage and much debate about trophy hunting. It has created awareness in conservation research and been the inspiration for a petition to establish "World Heritage Species" under UNESCO protection. All this debate raises some interesting questions about whether some species are inherently more "valuable" than others and what the role of social media can be in conservation.

Kevin Wilson, manager of the Chipangali Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, responds to the concerns that conscientious volunteers have about predator work in wildlife rehabilitation centres. We applaud any would-be wildlife volunteers who do their research on the credibility of conservation projects, and appreciate the opportunity to answer questions. Here Kevin explains how Chipangali manage their predator populations and when it is appropriate to have predators in wildlife sanctuaries.

"How as your weekend?” is a standard Monday morning greeting. If anyone asked Dr Rogers and team this Monday, the likely response would have been “What weekend?!” Here is a run down of the wildlife cases that his clinic dealt with between Friday and Sunday night!

We are very sad to announce that Valentine succumbed to her injuries on Sunday night. The lion attack had not only removed her tail but had also damaged her anus and intestine, so that she was not able to defecate and digest her food properly. While we are saddened at her loss, she had been in a lot of pain and her suffering has ended.

Arguably the entire rhino poaching crisis is based on lack of education and information, as misinformation about the medicinal use of rhino horn has created the demand. We therefore believe that the more people are well-informed about rhino as a species, the better! For this purpose, we have created the "Rhino Fact File" below. We hope you will enjoy this and share knowledge about these amazing animals with other people. Let's all become Rhino Ambassadors!
