A very informative article on animal diseases and especially about avian flu.

Some super stuff on cats, a new monkey found in Tanzania and a very tempting invite to the Outpost in the KNP Maluleke consession. On the crawley side, read about golden orb-web spiders and the humble but vital work of insects in the cycle of life.

Also of interest Ian Michler's article on new legislation on canned hunting.

As always, the front page is awesome, and this issue's is huggable and incredibly cute!

Happy reading

I spent a month in that area last November doing an EcoTraining course. Check my websiteif you'd like to see more pictures of the Makuleke (including the waterfalls featured in the article).

See our SANParks writing competition on page 19 and also read about the award given to Boulders Penguin Colony in CT on page 18.

Controversial topic - elephant rides are addressed in an article "On the back of Gaints".

Bat eared Foxes - I really don't know much about these creatures, but the article was enlightning - another woman in conservation doing a great job! (Sorry, need to get excited about women taking care of mother earth)

On page 38, an exciting over of the Peace Parks Foundation - check out Machampane Tented Camp in the Lebombo Mountains....

Changelings, page 26, babies are tough cookies from day one and page 30 brings good tidings about the wonder of water in nature. (And some pretty nice photographs to boot!)

I'm naughty now, but there's a mouthwatering model on page 9 that got me really exited....

After buying A G for the last couple of months I am seriously considering subscribing. It is a bit pricey as I already subscribe to National Geographic and Getaway. Non the less, I consider it so important to support magazines that promote the environment.

Have you seen it's specialist twin magazine Africa Birds and Birding ...Brilliant I subscribe to that instead.

Hi PB,
I am not really a birder, but I do appreciate how good the magazines are. Their quality is unbelievable. If I had a better eye and a better pair of binocs, there would be no challenge :wink:

Hi Macho Mouse...What Binos do you have.. maybe they are perfect... maybe they are too dark, maybe they are too heavy and hard to hold still?? I've done A LOT of research into optics so maybe I can add my six eggs to your situation which may or may not be a problem after all. Do you wear glasses as you said your eyesight could be better?

PB, mine were purely and simply stolen. I had painters and carpenters... when I left for my holiday.... all was gone :evil: :evil:
if you can give me guidance into a reasonably price good pair of binocs, I would be grateful.

Wildlife Wonders of the Kruger National Park.All I can say is that the photography is superb - from the front page to the last page.

Page 25 is one of my favourites.

Not a lot of reading material inside, but the photographs will really do a few things; you will want to experience this beautiful Park, you will dust your camera for the 100th time (this year) and head off to take a few more pictures, or you will weep with utter longing and joy to have such a precious glimpse of heaven...

Enjoy!

There is also a special edition on birds, but as the magazines are a bit expensive IMHO but worth every cent, I will treat myself after month-end. The pictures I have seen after a quick page-through was excellent, and the Narina Trogon...well, one day I will have my own personal photograph of that... :wink:
