Addo Mazimba - one of Zambia’s newest - (and most enthusiastic) canine handlers. With Icke, one of Zambia’s newest detection canines. Both Addo and Icke have been receiving training and mentorship with the rest of their four person team at @north_luangwa REPU base. When they are ready they will head home to @nsumbu_tanganyika to introduce the canine component to the law enforcement operations of the Nsumbu Tanganyika ecosystem.

Teamwork across ecosystems… Having two projects in Zambia means that a lot of cross-pollination can occur between FZS’s oldest conservation project in Zambia: North Luangwa Conservation Programme – and one of FZS’s youngest projects – the Nsumbu Tanganyika Conservation Programme (NTCP) – their sister programme. One of the key areas for skills sharing involves the Wildlife Detection Canine Programme.

Darwin, a very young Darwin, taken all the way back in 2008, when the iron-fisted Pim was King and young male chimps like Darwin scratched their chins and contemplated life on quiet forest paths. Two years out of university, my nomadic mum having sold her small car and loaned me the sale money to buy the contents of my small photo backpack, this was one of the first wildlife photos I was really proud of, because there was so much attached to it. Over four days we trekked each day to spend time with the Mahale M group, it was a cover story for a Tanzanian magazine and I was feeling the pressure. Photographed on a venerable Canon 20D (and its still going!), under a very dark forest canopy, while using most of my precious allotted chimp hour crouched on the damp forest floor with this special boy. One turn of head combined with one sliver of light allowed my 70-200mm f.4 to stretch for this beautiful moment, one that turned into a highlight in my life. Thank you to the always knowledgeable always cheerful Mahale chimp expert @butati.nyundo for the help with ID-ing this special chimpanzee. For years I had wondered who he was in the Mahale M group pecking order - if he was still alive, what had happened to Pim, and then I found Butati on Instagram and what a treat it was to hear all the news of this special troop of chimpanzees.

How many blues can one lake have? And what is your Kariba blue? Is it plain old “sky” blue – sky vast, breeze light, Cirrus clouds feathery… simple, but complete in its mild beauty. Or perhaps “steel” blue springs to mind… of balmy soft silver-stone sunless afternoons when Kariba vibrates with serenity, the stillness and stickiness a damp cloak, the horizon slinking off for a quiet snooze. Or is it deep “azure”? Synonymous with that high unforgiving sun that bakes terracotta earth, gold grass shriveling, antelope listless. Or how about “midnight” blue? Storm approaching, Nyaminyami awoken, boiling white-capped waves, this inland sea suddenly a-froth. Or merry “indigo-meets-stone-meets-berry-meets slate-meets-teal” blue? That mesmeric offspring conceived of pre-sunset and post-rainshower union. Or how about the crisp and clean “cerulean”? Of clear winter horizons and drinkable vistas? Perhaps this is “December blue” …watched from a Kipling’s verandah… with friends, coffee, the show unfurling.

And it’s all over! Ten days ago we finished our 350km walk following the Luangwa River through North Luangwa, Luambe and South Luangwa National Parks. It was an adventure, an education, a pleasure, a test, it definitely wasn’t a walk in the park. But most of all it was an immense privilege... to be able to experience this very special valley on foot, to breathe in its changing landscape, to be close to its wild creatures, and most importantly, to meet the people who call it home, the people who know its moods and it’s joys, it’s gifts, secrets and tests, it’s threats, it’s deep intrinsic beauty, its irreplaceable value.

Thank you to everyone we met along the way. Thanks for giving up your time to talk to us and teach us, to walk with us, or just to cheer us along. The real work begins now and we hope that we can do justice to the campfire talks, the mopane log interviews, and all the great conversations which taught us so much.

In honour of #EndangeredSpeciesDay and Shungu, a very special black rhino, who in this photo is pictured with Royd Kasonde, a North Luangwa Conservation Programme base attendant, and also part of the small but dedicated team that currently takes care of new rhino arrivals at @north_luangwa National Park.

Much of the history of black rhino in Zambia is fraught with devastation - and, once upon a time, national extinction. In the 1960s, Zambia’s black rhino population was the third largest in Africa but it was decimated by the relentless poaching of the 1980s, and by 1998, black rhino were extinct in Zambia.

But hope emerged in 2003, when a pioneering project created through the partnership of the Zambian Government and the @frankfurt.zoological.society saw the reintroduction of black rhino into Zambia - and specifically into the beautiful and remote North Luangwa National Park. Fast-forward seventeen years later, and @north_luangwa’s black rhino have since settled and are now breeding successfully thanks to the dedication and hard-work of the North Luangwa Conservation Programme and specifically its Rhino and Elephant Protection Unit (REPU). Join Claire Lewis @claire_northluangwa of NLCP’s Rhino Programme for the @savetherhinointernational BIG RHINO QUIZ tonight at 7pm UK team (click the @north_luangwa bio to register)

Creativity & the Power of Knitting - how the Gogo Olive Trust is surviving Zimbabwe's lockdown (by Mana Meadows Photography)

Sharks keeping warm by sporting winter jackets, tortoises donning masks, and a porcupine named “Wuhan” – these are just a handful of the colorful and creative assortment of knitted creatures created by the women from Gogo Olive for a special competition where the unique items will be auctioned off to raise money for the charity’s “Covid-Relief fund”.
The Gogo Olive Trust is a charity which works primarily with inmates and ex-inmates from Mutare Remand Prison, teaching them to knit and providing them with employment that has become an integral part of their rehabilitation while in prison and reintegration back into their communities after they are released.
The knitters were asked to knit a creature using whatever yarn they had at home. It had to tell a story of how they feel about Covid-19 or how the lockdown has affected them. It wasn’t allowed to resemble any of the Gogo Olive products and had to be completely their own design. “This created some healthy competition between the knitters!” says Julie Hagan, Gogo Olive founder.
One of the favourites that has emerged has been Gladys Maromo’s charismatic porcupine called “Wuhan”. Gladys said she named it Wuhan “because that is where the coronavirus started and they were the first people to fight Covid-19 as a porcupine fights enemies.” As well as an avid knitter, Gladys is in charge of quality control at Gogo Olive. Gladys says that a porcupine has got many quills on its back which it uses to defend itself against its enemy. “This is also what we are doing together, the whole world, like a porcupine. A porcupine uses its quills to strike its enemy, we are using our quills – medicines, masks and sanitizers – to fight against coronavirus.”
Shorayi Chipongo knitted two animals – a Kamba (tortoise) called Listen and a Hozhwa (snail) called Do-it. “Their special feature is that they have shells (homes) in case of danger, says Shorayi. “If they sense any danger on their way they can just get in their shells until the atmosphere calms. That’s what we are being encouraged to do during this deadly pandemic of coronavirus. Because if we continue to move around we will be spreading and increasing this virus.”
With orders at a standstill and their online shop closed, Gogo Olive founder, Julie realized the charity needed to act quickly to ensure its survived the pandemic. “We went around in circles for a while trying to work out what to do but have decided that our main priority at the moment is making sure the ladies, and their families, have enough food to eat and that their essential needs are met. Life is not normal for anyone at the moment but we want the Gogo Olive ladies to know that we are here and we have their backs.”
For the last two weeks the Gogo Olive social media sites have been sharing the “Lockdown Creations” leading up to the online auction which will take place on Facebook between 8pm Zimbabwe time (7pm GMT) on Monday 18th May and 8pm Zimbabwe time (7pm GMT) on Tuesday 19th May. The build-up to the auction has already huge interest from the charity’s own supporter base, many of whom have been following the creations and commentary for daily doses of cheer.

------------
@Gogo Olive is one of my favourite products and I have spent a lot of time with many of the women who work there, sharing their stories and the story of Gogo Olive. They have launched this wonderful competition to assist them survive this tough time - I got hold of Julie Hagan the Founder of Gogo Olive to find out more and put together this quick background ahead of their Unique "Lockdown Creation" Auction on Monday the 18th May. Please share the post so more people can see their wonderful work and be inspired by these enterprising Zimbabwean artists - and visit their page at Gogo Olive to see the "Lockdown Creations" 👏👏👏
