Sad update to Rewilding the World: The spectacular Ndumo Game Reserve, a jewel of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal region and and an internationally-protected wetland, once home to extraordinary birdlife, hippos, and crocodiles, has been invaded by neighboring people, angry that promised government aid and reparations for land-grabs have never materialized. According to this blog, repairs to the fence line were demolished this past January, lawlessness prevails, and wildlife in the eastern part of the Reserve is gone.
