Welcome to the 35th issue of The Eye.
These guys from Majete and their collaboration with African parks and the department of national parks never cease to amaze me with their ongoing developments and their success stories, which they all obviously must be faced with many, many obstacles. This issue they focus on efforts made on monitoring the apex predators, namely lion, leopard, and the spotted Hyena. Big thanks to Willem Briers-Louw & a familiar name Dr. Alison Leslie.
We welcome a new contributor in Alex Chungwa, Parks Manager (DN) for Lake Malawi National Park, which, let’s face it a national treasure, being in the top 10 of biggest and deepest in Africa. We run our second part to Chameleons, from one of the longest contributors to The Eye, Prof. Harrison Simfukwe – Karonga; stay tuned as I know he is itching to bring us something from up North as it’s been a while. Susan Waldron keeps us in check with a very real issue – Cholera. Carl Bruessow is back, which is about time, with no, not Mulanje, but the porters race, yes, in Mulanje, now an international event and in their 20th .year. Well done guys.
A very dedicated, Sandy Trevethan, gives us a really great piece on their relentless efforts in Mwayi Trust, which, sometimes these projects may be overlooked but they are incredibly important in sustainably within any community, town, city, country, well you know the rest. Help where you can. Sandy is sticking around so do expect more from her in the future.
Advertisers, thanks for sticking with us. We will not disappoint. Despite the situation 9000 mags will be delivered by, well the time you read this.
Have faith, I have allot of plans in the pipe line.
For now take care of yourselves and each other.
