World Wildlife Day: Technology In Conservation

It’s a little over 10 years ago now that March 3rd was declared United Nations World Wildlife Day. It’s an auspicious day, having been the date the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was signed in 1973. Technology in conservation has come a long way since then. This is a global 24 hours to recognise the importance of wildlife and biodiversity along with the benefits and beauty we’re able to derive from nature.

The Legendary Allure of Tanzania’s Serengeti

The Serengeti’s storied plains are a thing of wondrous beauty; endless grasslands, winding rivers, rocky volcanic outcrops and thorny acacia forests. Renowned for its epic mammal migration which draws thousands of safari lovers every year, this pristine wilderness is also one of the best places in the world to see lions in their natural habitat, along with a host of other unique wildlife.
