Extinction is forever…..Russet Rhinos must survive!

Extinction is forever. It will be a sad day if ever we can not see these wonderful creatures called ‘Rhinos’ in the wild…..

Here at Senuko Ranch in the Save Valley Conservancy, and contiguous with the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation  Area, we can still  walk through wilderness and find our protected White and Black rhinos living free. Long may it last!

Organizations such as the Save Valley Conservancy, Lowveld Rhino Trust, International Rhino Foundation, Tusk Trust, SAVE, African Wildlife Conservation Fund, Painted  Wolf Wines,  Malilangwe Trust, and Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Authority help to protect our  Zimbabwean rhinos,  African wild dogs and other endangered species.

Further afield, Lewa Conservancy and the Northern Rangelands Trust in Kenya do a magnificent job.

Prince William, with The Royal Foundation, Tusk Trust, and United for Wildlife is  a dynamic force for endangered species, addressing the issues of wildlife trade, including elephant, rhinos, African wild dogs and lions…

About wineandwilddogs

Lin Barrie 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.
