Met Wild Dogs for the first time. It was good to be up close and get a sense of them. The guide at de Wildt Cheetah project said they’ve been a very difficult species to conserve as people consider them ‘ugly’ and ‘brutal’ the way they kill their prey.
I met with Ann Van Wyk afterwards and we spoke about her work and how it connects to other environmental ‘issues’. She seemed tired and disillusioned with people.
[do you blame her?]
