Unlikely success: how Zimbabwe has become a global leader in rhino conservation.
Read this link, very heartwarming, great article, thank you all…but I do NOT feel that we have an ‘unlikely’ success story here…we have a very LIKELY success story…Zimbabwe has a strength of resolve and a plethora of committed, highly moral people who aim to make a difference for the future of all wildlife in Zimbabwe, Africa and even further afield!

We at Senuko, Clive Stockil and indeed the whole Save Valley Conservancy, are excited that Raoul Du Toit will speak at the Wildlife Conservation Expo in San Francisco….
Raoul and Natasha check for bullets…
Thank you Lowveld Rhino Trust for so many years of dedication to the cause of Zimbabwe”s and indeed, the World’s, rhinos!
The Save Valley Conservancy stretches along the upper reaches of the great Save River in the south east of Zimbabwe. The Gonarezhou National Park laps against the southern banks of the Save River and between these two nestles the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. These three celebrated wildlife areas form part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area, (GLTFCA)- a unique wilderness jewel which is home to the “Big Five” (endangered Black and White rhinos, elephants, buffalo, lion, leopard) and the ”Little Six” (Klipspringer, Suni, Duiker, Steenbok, Sharpe's Grysbok and Oribi). Endangered African wild dogs, Cheetah, Brown hyena, Bat-eared foxes and a host of special birds and plants contribute to the immense variety of this ecosystem. Communities around the GLTFCA contribute to innovative partnerships with National Parks and the private sector, forming a sound base on which to manage social, economic and environmental issues.
This is home to artist and writer Lin Barrie and her life partner, conservationist Clive Stockil.
Expressing her hopes, fears and love for this special ecosystem with oil paints on canvas, Lin Barrie believes that the essence of a landscape, person or animal, can only truly be captured by direct observation.
Lin Barrie states: “Through my art, and my writing, I feel an intimate connection with the natural world, and from my extensive field sketches of wild animals, people and landscapes, I create larger works on canvas.
Lin's work is in various public and private collections in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Australia, England, Canada, Sweden and the United States of America. She is represented by galleries in South Africa, Zimbabwe, England, Kenya and Florida, USA.

Fantastic – so many dedicated people working together for the rhinos, not for publicity or themselves.
Thank you Janet!
