A selection of what's been whetting our reading appetites these past few months.

From 450,000 lions in the 1940s to 23,000 today. Sobering to describe what's in that number.
We were surprised and very happy to hear the news this weekend that ALERT is gearing up to release their second pride into a purpose-built enclosure at their Livingstone, Zambia, location.
September 1st will mark the one year anniversary of the release of the Ngamo Pride.
The African Lion & Environmental Research Trust works with all sectors of society throughout Africa to promote the development of sustainable lion conservation management plans. ALERT is proud to foster partnerships with stakeholders to collaboratively develop and implement African solutions to African challenges. ALERT promotes community action by raising awareness, motivating and empowering people to protect and restore their environment and improve livelihoods.
Panthera leo, the lion, Africa's most iconic symbol, is dwindling in numbers at an alarming rate.
I am in love. Only time will tell if it's a case of blissful infatuation where I will inevitably be let down and disappointed once I get to know Africa better and reality sinks in, or if my love will deepen and be taken to a higher level with a new understanding from my first-hand experience.
