TravelTalkRadio discusses wildlife questions


The San Francisco bay area (previously San Diego)-based TravelTalkRadio spoke with this correspondent last week about several of his recent articles related to wildlife conservation in Eastern Africa. Discussed was, among others, the sad case of five poisoned lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park, blamed on illegal herders constantly trying to push their cattle into the park and other issues from the region.

Topics included the Kwita Izina festival in Rwanda, where newly-born mountain gorilla babies are named, and the relocation of 32 eastern black rhinos from South Africa to Tanzania, which were received by none other than President Kikwete.
