Black Rhino Conservation with WWF
 
01:55
A short documentary film about Wildlife ACT’s black rhino conservation work that is being done with WWF to help save this species from extinction. Since 2004, over 160 black rhino have been trans-located with 10 new populations created. To date there have been more than 60 calves born on project sites. Black rhino range has increased by 220 000 hectares in South Africa through the project, with an increase of 49% of their range in Kwa-Zulu Natal. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * SUPPORT REAL CONSERVATION Wildlife ACT funds itself by offering a Fair Trade Tourism certified volunteering program supported by global conservation authorities such as the WWF, the Endangered Wildlife Trust, Panthera and Wildlands.

It is one of the loudest calls in the animal kingdom and can be heard from up to 8km away. The male lion roar is deeper and louder than the female’s. Lions roar to warn other prides to keep their distance from their own territory. Lion roars indicate strength and size and let other lions know where they are. You can mostly hear lions roaring just before sunrise and sunset when they are most active. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * SUPPORT REAL CONSERVATION Wildlife ACT funds itself by offering a Fair Trade Tourism certified volunteering program supported by global conservation authorities such as the WWF, the Endangered Wildlife Trust, Panthera and Wildlands.

Hawksbill Turtle Conservation
 
01:01
Critically endangered Hawksbill Sea Turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) are part of the cheloniidae family and can be found in tropical and subtropical regions of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. In contrast to all other sea turtle species, Hawksbills nest in low densities on small, scattered beaches. This small to medium-sized marine turtle has a thin elongated oval shell with overlapping scutes on the carapace, a relatively small head with a distinctive hawk-like beak, and flippers with two claws. Hawksbill turtles are mainly carnivorous and appear to be opportunistic predators. They use their narrow beaks to extract invertebrate prey from crevices on the reef. MAJOR THREATS: Hawksbills face multiple, severe threats including the Tortoiseshell Trade, egg collection, slaughter for meat, destruction of nesting and foraging habitat, oil pollution, entanglement and ingestion of marine debris and fishing gear, and hybridisation of Hawksbills with other species. In 2001 a IUCN Red List subcommittee upheld the Critically Endangered listing of the Hawksbill based on ongoing and long-term declines in excess of 80% within three generations. Hawksbill Turtles can take 20 to 40 years to mature. Data on reproductive longevity in Hawksbills are limited, but becoming available with increasing numbers of intensively monitored, long-term projects on protected beaches. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * SUPPORT REAL CONSERVATION North Island was recognized for its conservation work by being awarded as the National Geographic World Legacy Awards winner for Conserving the Natural World 2017.

Wildlife ACT Volunteer for Africa

Tami Medsker is one of many people who volunteered with Wildlife ACT and left feeling inspired and motivated to do more. She put together the following video and shares some insights into how African conservation is perceived on her home continent: “I can't begin to really explain the impact my four weeks with Wildlife ACT has had on me. The people here in the States have a very shallow understanding of the realities of snaring, poaching, and subsistence poaching. Most people really can't even grasp the poverty and desperation of the people living in and adjacent to the reserves. Even for me, the reality was a revelation. So many people have asked why "you" can't just explain to them the importance of conservation and I tell them it's not a matter of "teaching" them about endangered species and ecological balances - it's changing their entire culture that's making conservation efforts even more challenging than they already are” * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * SUPPORT REAL CONSERVATION Wildlife ACT funds itself by offering a Fair Trade Tourism certified volunteering program supported by global conservation authorities such as the WWF, the Endangered Wildlife Trust, Panthera and Wildlands.

Lions Roaring - Male Lion vs Lioness
 
01:09
Lions have the loudest roar of all the big cats, and can be heard up to 8km away. You can even hear the echo behind his roar in this video. Lion roar for several reasons: - To show their presence - To call the pride - To help establish their territory - And to attract a mate Why is a Lion's roar so loud? Tigers, leopards and jaguars all belong to the same genus, Panthera, and have similar roars. However, the reason why the lion's roar is so loud is not necessarily due to the size of the animal, but due to their vocal cords which are different to other species. In most species the vocal cords are shaped like triangles, whereas those of lions form a square shape. The reason for this shape is due to lion's having some fat located deep within the vocal fold ligament, which stabilizes the vocal cords, enabling them to better respond to the passing of air. This allows lions to produce loud roars without exerting too much pressure on their lungs.

New Male Lion Coalition at Manyoni
 
00:49
Keeping an eye on Manyoni Private Game Reserve’s newest lion coalition… It is often thought that it is only the lionesses that do the hunting, however such is not always true. Male lions have to fend for themselves before they take over a pride and after they have been displaced from one. Male lion coalitions (most often a group of brothers or related individuals) hunt together, sometimes even having enough power to take down a lone buffalo! However prey can vary from the size of a warthog or porcupine to that of smaller antelope and zebra. These dietary habits are exactly the type research and data that Wildlife ACT volunteers are here to experience and record. The team came across these beautiful males one evening at a waterhole - not far from camp. Having only been on the reserve for a couple of months, these fine cats seem to be settling in well. Looking quite alert, the brothers were just starting to get active as the sun was setting over the horizon. At just four years of age, they are well on track to becoming Manyoni’s biggest males! * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * SUPPORT REAL CONSERVATION Wildlife ACT funds itself by offering a Fair Trade Tourism certified volunteering program supported by global conservation authorities such as the WWF, the Endangered Wildlife Trust, Panthera and Wildlands.

Encounter Between two Cheetah Coalitions
 
01:03
Our priorities over the last few days had been to locate a few specific cheetah that hadn’t been seen in a while. Our wildlife monitor was explaining to us the different family groups and cheetah coalitions around this area. We hoped to see a mum and her new litter of cubs! Little did we know that we were in the front seats for a once in a lifetime experience… We located 3 cheetah which we quickly identified as the reserve’s coalition of 3 brothers. But we were told 5 cheetah? At first we thought they might be stalking some prey, but as we scanned the area we soon spotted another 2 cheetah… 2 more males? Once again, using the identity kits that volunteers help put together by capturing photos of all the individuals, we identified these 2 to be the newly released coalition on the reserve (recently released to strengthen the gene pool), and the first reported sighting! The 3 brothers slowly approached the other 2 with an initial soft greeting – yet this didn’t last too long. Soon sounds of interaction erupted. Squeaks and squeals and what almost sounded like bird chirruping were coming from all directions as the 3 brothers appeared to circle the other 2. This testing of the smaller coalition went on, back and forth for a couple minutes, then a rest period, then an individual would initiate again and the process would start all over. We weren’t sure how this would play out. Would the larger coalition force the smaller coalition out of their territory? Or would the two cheetah coalitions join forces to become one large coalition? So many possible outcomes… yet the 3 brothers eventually stood up, and with a quick glance back at the 2 brothers, left the area together. Both coalitions intact! We all looked at our watches and couldn’t believe it – we had been watching this epic testing of wills for over 150 minutes – every second memorized! Without the volunteers to scan, help record behaviour, get GPS coordinates and take ID photos of the entire exchange, research of these events would be rather difficult. Wildlife ACT rely heavily on a constant stream of volunteers to help the monitors document experiences such as this.

New Lion Cubs on Somkhanda
 
01:10
And then there were eleven… On 29 May the Somkhanda Game Reserve priority species monitoring team heard the sound of very young lion cubs vocalising close to what was thought to perhaps be a den site. “For the next two months the pride’s movements remained consistent. They gave us no clues and we wondered if we hadn’t in fact imagined the young cubs’ chorus”, says Wildlife ACT Senior Monitor, Pippa Orpen. But in July 2018, to much excitement, the Somkhanda pride emerged with four new lion cubs. These magnificent creatures never cease to amaze – their bond is tangible. The adults and older lion cubs are intensely affectionate and tolerant of the young ones, the four new mischievous cubs demand round-the-clock attention and they are keeping the others on their toes! As seen in this video, the older female cub from the first litter (born last year) has a tendency to sit on her younger siblings when she has had enough of their antics. Ecologically, lions play a pivotal role in keeping Somkhanda’s ecosystem in equilibrium. Lions are carnivores and have no natural predators besides man, which makes them apex predators or keystone species. Monitoring them assists reserve management to better understand their impacts on the reserve’s systems and processes and make informed decisions. Due to habitat destruction and human persecution, fewer than 25,000 lions remain in the wild today, and their range has diminished by approximately 80%. WILDTRUST, together with the Gumbi community – the landowners of Somkhanda – introduced a population of lions to the reserve in 2016 to help restore balance and contribute to the conservation of this important species. The lions and other priority species are monitored daily by Wildlife ACT. To learn more about the work of these organisations, visit www.wildlifeact.com and/or www.wildtrust.co.za

Lions Give Chase!
 
00:44
Lions are known to use a combination of ambush and stalking to take down prey. Watch as these two male lions attempt to take down a Wildebeest on Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game reserve! The two males were resting together when they spotted a Wildebeest in the distance. The first lion reacted by moving into a position that enabled him to chase the Wildebeest towards the second lion, which had ducked down low and remained in position, ready to cut the Wildebeest off. The target prey managed to zigzag past the two lions and found a gap through the bushes to escape. It was an incredible sight! This is one of the amazing sightings that Wildlife ACT Volunteers are often able to witness while monitoring Lions, Cheetah and African Painted Wolves on the iMfolozi Project.

Support Real Lion Conservation
 
01:02
A big threat to lions is their captive breeding. This unethical practice is what is fueling the cub-petting industry. Many of these hand-reared lions are ultimately trophy hunted in canned hunts when they reach a certain age. The captive breeding of lions is NOT conservation. Do not believe that hand-reared lions can be successfully released into the wild and survive. If you pet a lion, you could be indirectly responsible for killing a lion: http://bit.ly/2iR0GXP Please help create awareness about the captive breeding of lions, support Real Lion conservation, and watch the documentary, Blood Lions™, to get a proper understanding of what is happening behind closed doors. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * SUPPORT REAL CONSERVATION Wildlife ACT funds itself by offering a Fair Trade Tourism certified volunteering program supported by global conservation authorities such as the WWF, the Endangered Wildlife Trust, Panthera and Wildlands.

Wildlife Monitoring with Camera Traps
 
02:42
Camera trap setup and take-down can be a labour-intensive task and requires some positive teamwork and a bit of elbow grease! The results are always worth it however, and the species captured on these remote cameras play an important role with assessing the status of endangered species on a reserve and to help develop and monitor management interventions. Camera traps can be used for numerous applications – whether it’s monitoring population sizes or to answer a specific research question. When used effectively, the information captured by camera traps can be invaluable – especially when coupled with other monitoring techniques. In Africa specifically, camera traps continue to be an important component of endangered species monitoring, particularly for more elusive species such as Leopard and Black Rhino. In many areas these animals are characteristically shy and difficult to observe, which can result in poor knowledge of a population and its demographics and ultimately poor population management.

Tusker Elephant on Tembe
 
01:01
This magnificent #Tusker elephant was filmed at Tembe Elephant Park last year. Tembe is widely known for having around 200 of the world’s largest elephants, and is also the last remaining indigenous herd in KwaZulu-Natal. This population includes a handful of legendary “Tuskers” (elephants whose enormous tusks can weigh more than 45kgs)! The last remaining big-tuskers are slowly dying out in wildlife parks, but it is hoped that through the conservation of this important population’s gene pool, future tuskers will emerge.

How Often do Lions Mate?
 
00:35
It is estimated that lions copulate 3000 times for every cub that survives to the yearling stage. In addition to this fact, studies show that generally only 1 mating cycle in 5 results in progeny. Gestation for a lioness is 3.5 months with an average of 3 cubs per litter, however, anywhere from 1 to 6 cubs is a possibility. One of the priorities for the Wildlife ACT Team on Manyoni Private Game Reserve is to keep track of such behaviour and which individuals are interacting. The monitoring team was fortunate enough to witness one of the reserve's younger females mating with one of our newly-introduced males from July this year. As time records, roughly 4 months have passed... We have tracked this lioness’ progress, observed her swollen belly and teats, and recorded her whereabouts, which led near to a well-hidden lair towards the south of the reserve, where reports of four wobbly-knee’d cubs have arisen!

White Rhinos Mating in Hluhluwe
 
01:01
The Leopard Survey priority species monitors, currently based in the Hluhluwe section of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, were very lucky to be in the right place at the right time when they came across a rarely witnessed event of White Rhinos mating! The event shown in this minute-long video lasted about 8 minutes from start to finish. For White Rhino bulls to succeed in their courtship with a female, they must first claim “attractive” land by marking (using dung and urine spray) and protecting it against competitors. White Rhino cows may have overlapping home ranges with several territorial bulls, but when receptive for mating, the bull will attempt to “win her over” and keep her within his area for up to 20 days. The female’s courtship acceptance is to allow the bull to rest his chin on her rump before allowing him to mount, as seen in this video. Keep in mind these animals are the 2nd largest African land mammal and males can weight up to 2 tons… It takes several attempts before they get it right and further courtship may proceed for 2 to 5 days. Sixteen months later (if successful) Hluhluwe will be one 40kg Rhino richer. In 2016, the White Rhino population was estimated to be between 19,682 and 21,077, the majority of which lives in South Africa. However, with the increasing demand for Rhino horn, more than 7,245 African Rhinos (Black and White) have been lost to poaching in just a decade... This rare footage of Rhinos mating is therefore good cause for celebration. Thanks to the endless hard work by conservation organizations such as Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and Wildlife ACT (including camera trap images obtained through the Panthera Leopard Survey), that help ensure that these grey giants still roam freely within their natural habitats.

Baby Elephant chasing nyalas
 
01:00
Stumbling and speed-walking through life, this young elephant calf is gradually getting his ears and trunk around the awesome advantages of being one of the true Kings of Africa. It is through close interaction and kinship with all the members of the herd which allows not only the calves to mature and learn, but also helps teach young cows the difficulties involved in mothering a 100 kg baby. By mimicking the older cows in the herd, the calves will slowly learn the skills needed to operate their trunk and ears, as well where to find water and learn which animals to avoid. Chasing nyalas, experiencing the joys of a trunk, and drinking from mother's undercarriage, is the hard life a baby elephant at Tembe Elephant Park goes through!

To date, Panthera​ (the global wild cat conservation organisation), with support from Peace Parks Foundation and Cartier, have distributed over 15,000 faux leopard fur capes (known locally as amambatha) to members of the Nazareth Baptist (Shembe) Church in South Africa, as part of their innovative Furs for Life Project. The project is seen as a practical and culturally-sensitive solution to addressing the illegal skin trade, and thanks to the support of Shembe leaders, the faux skins have gained increased acceptance as viable alternatives to real leopard skins. For more information, please visit www.panthera.org/furs-for-life As a partner of Panthera, Wildlife ACT has been screening the Furs for Life educational video (with Zulu narration) as part of their Kid’s Bush Camp Programme in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

How to Save Vultures from Extinction

Southern Africa's vultures are on the verge of extinction. Wildlife ACT and the Zululand Vulture Project plan to change that. Please help before it's too late... http://bit.ly/2DoUEdz Of the 6 species of vulture that occur in Zululand, the Lappet-faced and the Cape vultures are classified as endangered while the White-backed, White-headed and Hooded vultures are classified as critically endangered. The vultures of Southern Africa are literally teetering on the edge of extinction. Just how did vultures get to the point where we are faced with the imminent loss of multiple species in southern Africa? In addition to the largest enemies of all wildlife (habitat loss coupled with ever-increasing human populations) vultures are vulnerable to a trifecta of conservation threats which push them closer towards extinction every year… Please support vulture conservation in Africa by making a donation towards this essential work: http://bit.ly/2DoUEdz

Family: Felidae Scientific name: Acinonyx jubatus Common name: Cheetah IUCN Red List of Threatened Species Status: Vulnerable Population estimate (in the wild): 7000 Approximate number of mature individuals: 6674 Population trend: Decreasing Learn more: http://bit.ly/2xQAu9p Cheetah are part of the felidae family and can be found throughout Africa in open plains and grasslands or other terrains that allow them to run unhindered. They are characteristically identified by the black tear marks along their faces and their slight frame. Even though cheetah are considered one of the larger predators, they are quite significantly smaller than other feline predators such as the lion or leopard – only measuring between 80 to 90cm at the shoulder and weighing between 30 and 60 kilograms. Cheetah are rather elusive creatures and have been known to live between 11 and 16 years in the wild. Hyena, lion and leopard pose the biggest danger to cheetahs, adults and cubs alike. Cheetah have disappeared from more than 75% of their historic range in Africa and their population has decreased by over 30% in the last 20 years. Fewer than 7500 adults remain in the wild, with approximately 1000 of these found in South Africa.

African Wild Dogs (also known as Painted Dogs or Painted Wolves) are the second most endangered carnivore in Africa. In South Africa, we have fewer than 550 roaming our wild spaces and only 39 distinct sub-populations left in Africa. African wild dogs need massive areas to support themselves and for populations to be genetically diverse and sustainable. Due to their endangered status, African Wild Dogs are our focal species which the majority of our conservation efforts are based around. Our intensive monitoring of African Wild Dogs is done 365 days a year. Our ultimate goal is to reintroduce painted dogs successfully back into their historical ranges and ensure the protection of the population into the future.

Giraffe Fight for Dominance
 
02:33
What might look like two male giraffe elegantly swinging their necks towards each other in a beautiful dance, is in fact a display of competition for dominance. Giraffes achieve this by steadying their legs and swinging their necks towards each other to deliver a “sledgehammer” blow to each other using their ossicones at the top of their heads. At a distance this fight appears to be in slow motion but the sounds of their impacts can be heard up to 100m away. They can fight like this until they obtain serious injuries or even death from their opponents. After the fight the winner will emphasize his dominance by briefly mounting the loser.
