Impala creche

Impala lambs are generally born around the same time, in the rainy season when everything is green and grazing is abundant. Rather than staying exclusively with their mother, the lambs stay together in creches overseen by a few females who keep an eye out for their well-being.

Rhino in the evening light

Yesterday I saw the prize-winning documentary Stroop about rhino poaching and the trade in rhino horn in Asia. It’s so sad to know that our greed as human beings destroys the world around us. Why can’t we find a way to share, to go not for profit but for sustainability and livelihoods for workers? Look at this innocent creature, so mighty and strong, but so vulnerable to our vices. Will they still be with us in 50 years time?
