👆In Majete Wildlife Reserve, a small park in southern Malawi with a devastating past, something miraculous is happening. By the early 2000’s the park had been completely hunted out – rhinos, elephants, lions, leopards, everything poached and only a few antelope remained. The forest was beginning to be felled for charcoal; only 12 scouts were employed, and not one single tourist had visited in the park in the prior three years, meaning not one single dollar had made its way into the park. But in 2003, the conservation organization @africanparksnetwork entered into a long-term agreement with the Malawian Government to manage the reserve and bring it back to life. After securing the park, they brought back rhinos in 2003, elephants in 2006, lions in 2012 and 1,200 other animals over the years. They built schools, delivered healthcare, prevented conflict, and worked closely with local communities to deliver other needed benefits. Fast forward just 15 years, and Majete has now been restored. Wildlife is thriving and since their reintroductions, not one elephant or rhino has been lost to poaching. Elephant numbers grew to over 400 last year, where some were moved to help repopulate another park in Malawi. More than 180 people are employed, and in the last year 9,000 tourists visited the park, half of those were Malawian nationals, and they brought in over $500,000 in tourism revenue which goes back to helping protect Majete and to local community programs. Today, more than 22,000 animals call the park home. And just last week, the first two, of what will be up to 10 lions, were translocated from Majete to help bring lions back to another park – Liwonde - in Malawi. Majete has become a source for wildlife and is helping to repopulate other parks in the country. @AfricanParksNetwork is living proof that well-run protected areas can deliver countless benefits for people and wildlife alike.

"Freddie the #cat": ¿Qué diantres...?! Este mes el #majete cumple su primer año. Aunque no se sabe el día, esta cerca. Sigue siendo igual de juguetón, pero ha aprendido a mordisquear sin emocionarse tanto (mis manos lo notan...). Es... su manera de querer (los gatos quieren a la gente. Verídico).
Durante este tiempo él ha aprendido a convivir con un humano y yo a vivir con un gato. Me mola que me busque, y también que se esconda cuando le busco yo...
Cada día me parece más inteligente. ¿Amante acérrimo de los gatos? No sé, también me gustan mucho los perros... Nunca entenderé por qué hay que decantarse, pero cuando tienes a uno, claro está que es el más majete💯👍

Dinner time! I’m photographing a lion translocation by the @africanparksnetwork from Phinda Private Game Reserve, South Africa to Liwonde and Majete National Parks, Malawi. These two lionesses are enjoying an impala in the early morning sun. Shortly after I snapped this photo, the Phinda reserve team immobilised and moved these two lionesses to a boma for a few weeks before they make the flight over to Malawi! @africanparksnetwork is working together with the @lionrecovery to restore lions to parts of Africa where they once roamed! This is truly #goodnews as African lions are threatened by bushmeat poaching, conflict with farmers and poorly managed trophy hunting across much of their range. @africanparksnetwork is presently
managing 13 national parks in 9 countries, protecting over 7 million hectares of habitat which holds threatened species like black rhinoceros, forest and savanna elephants and big cats like lions and
leopards! Their recent work has brought back rhinos to Rwanda, moved #500elephants to a new home in Malawi and impacted more than 2 million people who are benefiting from the parks under their management.

@leonardodicapriofdn and @leonardodicaprio are funding the @LionRecovery who are sponsoring this translocation with the Dutch government!

On our first day as #earthwatch volunteers, we were given a crash course on identifying (species, gender, age) the various four-legged animals we would be helping to count as part of the census. While some species were more obvious like elephants, lions and #zebras, I thought there would be no way I would remember the various #antelope. On day 6, I was at a waterhole when some students from Texas walked over and said, "hey look, there are deer here", and I was able to say "actually, the one in the left is a male #nyala and the one on the right is a female #impala." #nerdalert #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #travelphotography #majete #malawi #bushbuck #sable #africanadventures

Saturday is World Wildlife Day - Big Cats!!
Big cats are some of the most revered species on the planet – but they’re under serious threat around the globe. Africa’s most iconic cat – the lion - has suffered drastic declines in the past two decades, down from once over 200,000 individuals to fewer than 20,000 today. But there are some hopeful and extraordinary things happening across Africa where lions have been thrown a lifeline. Just last week, the conservation NGO @AfricanParksNetwork successfully translocated the first two of 10 wild lions to Liwonde National Park in Malawi, in a project supported by the Dutch Government, @Lionrecovery and @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn, that will see wild lions gracing the plains once again. Lions are being brought back after the last one was seen four years ago, and it’s been even longer since breeding lions were found in the park. @AfricanParksNetwork assumed management of Liwonde on behalf of the government in 2015 and have spent the last three years securing the park, training rangers, removing snares, preventing conflict, and reviving the park to become an ecological and economical hub for the region. @AfricanParksNetwork currently manages 14 parks across Africa, protecting more than 26 million acres with the largest ranger force for any one NGO on the continent. They’ve returned rhinos and lions to Akagera in Rwanda, brought cheetahs back to Malawi and moved 500 elephants across that country, and they provide thousands of people with healthcare, education and employment. They are living proof that well-run protected areas can provide countless benefits for people and wildlife alike. Follow @AfricanParksNetwork for more inspiring conservation stories from across Africa.

Saving Africa’s wildlife has never seemed more urgent, but thanks to unprecedented conservation initiatives taking place in Africa – it has never seemed more possible. Kevin Sieff, from the Washington Post, visited Majete Wildlife Reserve in Malawi and saw what it takes to restore species to areas where they have been overhunted or even have gone locally extinct. Just over 16 years ago, not one elephant lived in Majete Wildlife Reserve – they had all been hunted out by the 1990’s. And that wasn’t all. The last rhino was seen in the 1970’s, lions and leopards had long been eradicated, and only a few surviving antelope remained in a forest that was also under threat of being felled for charcoal. After overhauling law enforcement and working with local communities, extreme measures were taken, including a series of reintroductions of rhinos, elephants and lions, amounting to a total of 2,900 animals from 14 different species. Ranger teams were trained and well-equipped, laws were enforced and abided by, and community projects were implemented delivering education, healthcare and alternative livelihoods to a once severely underserved community. Fast forward 16 years and Majete is now home to over 12,000 animals. More than 9,000 tourists visited the park in 2017, half of whom were Malawian, bringing with them over US$550,000 which feeds back to the management of Majete and community projects. Sieff hails @africanparksnetwork as a 21st-century “Noah’s Ark” where governments, donors, communities and conservationists are working together to ensure the survival of key species in these areas under the management of African Parks for the benefit of not just of wildlife and natural ecosystems, but for the people who live there too.

Lions in Malawi, the ‘warm heart of Africa’, are making a comeback! The country’s pride is growing as six wild lions have been safely transported from South Africa to their new homes in Majete Wildlife Reserve and Liwonde National Park to help revive the parks’ predator populations. Just last week, four of these lions (two males and two females) joined the two male lions who were translocated to Liwonde in February this year. Lions were last seen in the park over four years ago, and it had been even longer since a breeding population lived in the park. We moved the other two males to Majete Wildlife Reserve to improve the genetic diversity of the current lion population there. All lions are in secure enclosures (bomas) where they are adjusting to their new environment and bonding, and will be released over the coming weeks and months. Africa’s wildlife has suffered immensely in recent decades, and the lion population has crashed by more than 40% since 1993. Just 100 years ago, more than 200,000 lions lived in Africa- today, best estimates put them at fewer than 20,000. “Very simply, if a park is not being managed then it will be lost, we have two options, one is we allow these places to disappear. The other is we make our own plan,” says CEO of @africanparksnetwork, Peter Fearnhead who was recently quoted by the Washington Post (see link in our bio). By working closely with the Government of Malawi, the local community as with critical support from the Dutch Government, @lionrecovery and @leonardodicapriofdn – we are making a plan to restore the species to protected areas across Africa for the benefit of future generations. #AfricanParks #NaturesReturn #Conservation #Wildlife #Liwonde #Majete #Lions #Predators @africanparksnetwork #DutchGovernment, @lionrecovery and @leonardodicapriofdn @Zakouma_national_park

Lions in Malawi, the ‘warm heart of Africa’, are making a comeback! The country’s pride is growing as six wild lions have been safely transported from South Africa to their new homes in Majete Wildlife Reserve and Liwonde National Park to help revive the parks’ predator populations. Just last week, four of these lions (two males and two females) joined the two male lions who were translocated to Liwonde in February this year. Lions were last seen in the park over four years ago, and it had been even longer since a breeding population lived in the park. We moved the other two males to Majete Wildlife Reserve to improve the genetic diversity of the current lion population there. All lions are in secure enclosures (bomas) where they are adjusting to their new environment and bonding, and will be released over the coming weeks and months. Africa’s wildlife has suffered immensely in recent decades, and the lion population has crashed by more than 40% since 1993.

Waterbuck also called locally ‘toilet seat’ for their white ring of fur around their rump.

Osman (Safari Guide): "Which animal do you want to see most?"
Me (without a second thought): "Elephant"
Osman: "Oooo. Maybe if we're very lucky. But possibly not"

Got to spend the day today watching elephants, nyalas, impalas, waterbucks, bushbucks, kudus, warthogs and baboons visiting a water hole, helping the #earthwatch team collect data on the wildlife. The #sunset was just icing on the cake. #majete #Malawi #africanadventures #sunsetphotography #travelphotography #warmheartofafrica #africanparks

Sometimes the wildlife is too close for your telescopic lens, so your mobile phone will have to do! #earthwatch #majete #Malawi #africanadventures #wildlifephotography #travelphotography #naturephotography
