2016-10-03 - Johannesburg, South Africa

Attempts to give the maximum level of international protection to all African elephants have foundered at a key species conference in Johannesburg.

Rangers in Congo"s Garamba park fight, die in skirmishes with heavily armed elephant poachers

2015-11-08 - Johannesburg, South Africa

The shootout last month, in which three rangers and a Congolese army colonel were killed, highlights the challenge of protecting parks in a part of Africa plagued for decades by insurgencies, civil war, refugee flows and weak governments. It shows how some conservation efforts resemble a kind of guerrilla warfare in which rangers and soldiers stalk €´ and are stalked by €´ poachers who are slaughtering Africa´s elephants and other wildlife.

The National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA) has laid criminal charges against a well-known elephant sanctuary in Knysna for extreme cruelty to animals after photographs emerged showing wounded elephants.
