Hi All

Remember that 11 December is “International Mountain Day”. So grab a friend and head for the hills. The purpose of this day is to remind you of the importance of sustainable mountain development. For those lucky enough to live in Cape Town, your nearest Mountain is seconds away.  I was lucky enough to be invited to the top of Table Mountain for a birthday party last Friday. Thank you Paula!! I never get tired of that view. It keeps reminding me of how precious our natural resources are.

Other interesting news is that there is a new book out that looks really worth the read. See the information and link below. I have not had the opportunity to source and read “Killing for Profit”  so will have to place an order for the Christmas Stocking. Anyone who has had the opportunity to read this chilling book,  please share your views with the rest of us.

 

Killing for Profit

Killing for ProfitKilling for Profit

A terrifying true story of greed, corruption, depravity and ruthless criminal enterprise…

On the black markets of Southeast Asia, rhino horn is worth more than gold, cocaine and heroin. This is the chilling story of a two-year-long investigation into a dangerous criminal underworld and the merciless syndicates that will stop at nothing to obtain their prize. It is a tale of greed, folly and corruption, and of an increasingly desperate battle to save the rhino — which has survived for more than fifty million years — from extinction.

Killing for Profit is a compelling, meticulous and revelatory account of one of the world’s most secretive trades. It exposes the poachers, gangsters, con men, mercenaries, killers, gunrunners, diplomats, government officials and crime bosses behind the slaughter. And it follows the bloody trail from the front lines of the rhino wars in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique to the medicine markets of Vietnam and the lair of a wildlife-trafficking kingpin on the banks of the Mekong River in Laos…
