The recently published IUCN news that mountain gorilla populations have grown enough in recent years to re-class their conservation status from “Critically Endangered” to “Endangered” comes as a wonderful reassurance to the all of the organisations who are working tirelessly on the ground to bring this species back from the brink of extinction.

Masai Mara: November Game Report

Weather and grasslands:

It was very hot and dry in November, often with strong north easterly winds resulting in warm evenings and hot, dusty days. Relative humidity was as high as 90% and rainfall was 21.5mm received in the Musiara areas, although some areas of the Mara have had a little more rainfall than others, patterns have been localized. This November is dry compared with past years. The Mara River has dropped drastically in the last two weeks of the month and the marsh water levels have also more or less dried up.
