Did you know Otter's are one of the most traded animals for the pet trade.
100's of wild otters are trapped for the pet trade: what does this mean? Mother otters are killed and then their new born babies stolen and destined for a life in captivity. As a young pup otters look cute and cuddly, as they grow up and reach maturity these pet owners realise that the needs of an otter is by no means an easy task and all too often these 'pets' end up in tiny, dirty cages with little to no enrichment and unable to express their natural behaviours.

Please never think any wild animal should be a PET they are wild for a reason and where ever possible should be allowed to live their lives in a natural environment. In this global COVID19 pandemic, many humans have been confined to less 'freedom' - ask yourself how have you coped? Yet you know that you can go for a walk and that this lockdown will not be forever - can you imagine what these otters in cages must feel and think when their lockdown never ends?

Today is World Otter Day - lets celebrate today and work towards all otters being free from a life in tiny cages and used as entertainment.

Zimbabwe: Ex-Cop Jailed for Killing Rhino

Great results from Zimbabwe, with the minimum mandatory sentence given for the conviction rhino poaching, to a retired police officer, a former scout and a Zambian national for killing a black rhino in the Bubye Valley Conservancy.

A retired police officer, a former scout and a Zambian national have been jailed for nine years for killing a black rhinoceros in Bubye Valley Conservancy near Beitbridge last year.

Makwande meaning scales in Shona. Born in a poachers sack, abandoned by his mother due to stress and now in our care.

The latest attack on the rangers protecting Virunga National Park has left all of us completely devastated. Our sympathies and thoughts go out to the ranger’s families. Words at a time like this can do no justice to the impact that these deaths will have on so many lives, both animal and human.

Virunga National Park is one of the most biologically diverse areas on the planet and home to the world's critically endangered mountain gorillas.

https://phys.org/news/2020-04-gabon-pangolin-pandemic.html
Positive news coming out of Gabon who are taking a proactive stance against the future spread of Corona type viruses. Bush meat consumption is a practice that needs to be addressed worldwide and sustainable and ethical alternatives need to be sought.

Gabon on Friday banned the sale and eating of bats and pangolins, which are suspected of sparking the novel coronavirus in China where they are highly prized in traditional medicine.

Iris the bush pig

Meet one of our new rescues, Iris the bush pig. She came to us on the 23rd of February. Good samaratins found her drowning in a canal in Chiredzi. She has fully recovered from her ordeal and is very sweet most of the time, but can also be a little cheeky. She is around four months old.

A little bit of positive news. Sentence not long enough, but some justice at least and a step in the right direction.

Thank you for all you do for Pangolins and other endangered animals.
A much needed action coming from China. Let's hope that this ban remains in place and is correctly policed by the relevant authorities.
