Amazing news! 15,000 gorillas are safer today. The Congolese Government just made Ntokou-Pikounda National Park official. This park will protect an astounding 10% of the world's remaining wild gorilla population. (And 800 elephants and 960 chimpanzees, to boot!) In 2008, Wildlife Conservation Society researchers discovered 125,000 western lowland gorillas living in Ntokou-Pikounda and the surrounding region, and the staff has been working non stop to get this park established since then. We know that in order to protect gorillas in the park, WCS needs to staff up rapidly – which means recruiting, training, equipping, and supporting ecoguard patrols. The faster people are on the ground to manage the park, collect data on the gorillas, and find poachers before they strike, the better chance we have at protecting every last gorilla. If you would like to be part of this amazing and developing story to safeguard the home of one of the largest gorilla populations in the world. Click here to donate to WCS.

Notes from the field: Equatorial Guinea. Today was an emotionally overwhelming, yet rewarding day. I have wanted to see a pangolin as long as I can remember, and I know field guides in Africa who have spent their entire lives in the bush and only managed to see one or two. Traveling this morning through Equatorial Guinea, I saw 8 Pangolins hanging from their tails on roadside stands, 7 of which were dead. Due to the dire economic situation in EG, bushmeat is a means of survival, but an end to biodiversity. My solution, to buy the one I found alive, and release him into the protected realm of Parc de Monte Allen and hope for his survival. -Jessica Pociask

Exciting news! As of today, the Supreme Court of India has lifted the ban imposed on Tiger Tourism. We have just opened our India Tiger Safari for booking. This trip is guaranteed to sell out, so don't wait. No one knows how long this window will remain open, and with a dwindling Tiger population of less than 3,000 individuals in the wild, this may be your last chance. Sign up today!

Breaking Tiger Conservation News! India's Supreme Court has offically banned tourists in preserves for conservation reasons. Less than 3,000 tigers are believed to remain in the wild. While this is not good news for travelers, hopefully this will finally be the answer to preserving the small population for future generations. Click here to read the full article.

Guests are safe and sound here in Bamako, Mali, despite the military coup. Check our facebook page for more updates. As far as their tourism sector is concerned, its such a shame, because Mali is really an incredible place, with beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites and even more beautiful peoples.

Sanya R. just celebrated her 10th voyage with us! She made history by being the first WANT guest to complete 10 voyages, so it was not a question that our managing director had to greet her personally on her recent Pantanal Jaguar Safari and had to celebrate with her. Once again, we would like to thank Sanya for her incredible loyalty and wish her the very best health for the coming decades and many more successful expeditions to come.
