The Eye magazine & Directory Editor's Letter

 Dear Readers,

A very warm welcome to you all  🙂

This very special edition of the magazine is all about wildlife conservation and I’m hoping that after you’ve read our two articles, you’ll find it in your hearts to help these two very worthy causes, in some small way or another.

Worldwide, over a million Pangolins have been poached in the last ten years, making this little-known curiosity of a creature the most illegally trafficked animal in the world”.

Read more about the rescue and release of the African Pangolin and the wonderful work being undertaken by UWA and UCF.

The chimps that are taken from the wild endure incredible pain and terror before reaching Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary. It’s estimated that for every young chimpanzee taken from the forest alive, at least 8-10 adult chimpanzees would have been killed during its capture”.

The Chimpanzee Trust is doing all they can to ensure the survival and longevity of these chimps.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our advertisers for their valued support, and to wish you all a really wonderful festive season, wherever you may be. May you travel well, travel wise and travel happy.Shaz Glencross Editor of the eye magazine
