Rhinos continue to be poached at rates which can only be described as slaughter. The demand from the Asian market for rhino horn is insatiable and an unwillingness on government level in African countries to combat the scourge has caused the largest spike in poaching in decades.

Male lions are ousted from their prides by their fathers when they are around 18 months old. The youngsters become nomadic and roam freely for several years while they gain experience and maturity. In that time they stick with their brothers and sometimes join forces with other nomadic males to form what will become a powerful coalition. Once they come of age around 5 – 7 years these coalitions will challenge other coalitions of territorial males in an attempt to take over their pride lands, hunting grounds and the treasured females which make up the lion prides.
