Zambia Environmental Management Agency
TIMEFORNATURE
Health and environment are two sides of the same coin. When we take care of our environment we take care of our health, too. Nature is on the verge of a breakdown due to our insatiable appetite for development without due care to the environment. Be a part of the solution and join #ZEMA in calling for Time For Nature.

Ocean Conservation Namibia
A little bit more background to Antoine’s and Naude’s efforts to free seals in Namibia from Ocean rubbish and plastic pollution: see how they spot the animals, how they identify the ones they can get to, and eventually the rescue. Ocean Conservation Namibia has rescued over 200 seals this year alone. Most of our seals are caught in discarded fishing gear that the seals pick up from the ocean. Without intervention, they would find a horrible and slow end because of suffocation and starvation.
We have made it our mission to catch and release as many animals as possible.

BBC is with BBC Scotland
This osprey’s having a bit of bother with its fish supper…
G: I have added this because, although filmed in Scotland, we have ospreys visit us in Zambia. I have seen them in Lower Zambezi. They look similar to the fish eagle, but, when catching fish, they dive right into the water unlike the fish eagle which only catches fish from the surface.

Gill is also the author of several guidebooks about Zambia and the region, worth looking up and reading.
