DIARY OF A GAME RANGER – CHAD COCKING - 2 MARCH 2018

Tomorrow, the 3rd of March 2018, is the UN-sponsored World Wildlife Day with the theme, “Big Cats - Predators Under Threat”. In South Africa we try to celebrate and focus on these animals constantly, as well as any other species that need protection. In light of this, we have dedicate today's blog: “The Week In Photos” to celebrating the Big Cats that call Tanda Tula their home.

Despite our regular encounters with various big cats in the Greater Kruger Park area, we sometimes forget that these species face threats from many sides. It is imperative to raise awareness of the pressures being placed on big cats today throughout the world mainly through habitat fragmentation and loss. We support the UN’s goal to celebrate our planet’s beautiful and diverse wildlife whose intrinsic value provides so much to ecological, social, economic, scientific, cultural, recreational and aesthetic aspects of our human well-being and sustainable development.

The following images of some of the big cats found in the Timbavati over the last seven days were taken by Chad Cocking. We hope that by showcasing these beautiful big cats on World Wildlife Day we can help create awareness.
