“This is a monumental production and a monumental achievement.......a true testament to the belief that nowhere on this planet is so remote or difficult to work in that it is not worth trying to conserve.”          Rupert Watson, Swara 2016

Hardback book, 448 pages, full colour illustrations throughout of unique photographs and paintings

This book tells the story of the successes and challenges of conservation in the wild of the Northern White Rhinos and their ecosystem, including one of the densest elephant populations in Africa.  We doubled the populations of both elephants and rhinos in 8 years and continued conservation of the 5 World Heritage Sites of the Democratic Republic of Congo throughout the wars.

 

It provides a wealth of information presented in a readable way by those who lived and worked in Garamba National Park, from the start of conservation in the Congo and the first national park in Africa, the fascinating history of the first Elephant Domestication Centre and its revival, the practical challenges of conservation through peace time and wars, the “Warlords of Ivory and rhino horn” the current conservation with African Parks and even bringing Northern White Rhinos back from zoos to Africa.  

 

Through the book we aim to promote support for the conservation of rhinos and their habitats, especially in the current poaching crises!

 

From Comment
2015-07-27 Robin .... This is a fascinating book, with wonderful photos and amazing stories - did you know that for the first time since Hannibal African elephants were trained in Garamba? It is a sad book too, recording heroic efforts to save a very precious environment. We can only hope for ultimate success.
