Great blog Amanda. We have only got this one Earth. If we destroy it, there is not another one. We must all do iur part to protect it. Rhino conservation is very close to my heart. It is wonderful to know visiting Londolozi we are doing a small part in conserving these precious animals.

Thanks for making me stop and think, Amanda. We all have a tremendous responsibility to care for our earth and we need to be reminded of that obligation frequently. Thank you for encouraging change.

I try to do my part. Saving water, recycling. My daughter is the Santa Barbara Channel Keeper – founded by Bobby Kennedy, Jr. She is instrumental in keeping the Santa Barbara Channels clean. They Educate children, bring law suits, and test the waters. I am so proud of her. She and her family visited with us in 2017, we stayed at Founders Camp. They want to return with us in 2020 – will probably stay in Founders Camp, and they will have an 11yr old at the time.

Beautifully written Amanda. The accompanying videos really highlight the issues facing our planet today and I only wish they could be streamed worldwide.

I had no idea that a percentage of Londolozi ‘s tariffs went to support anti-poaching measures for rhinos. That’s brilliant! Looking forward to your next article.

Thank you for this post! A main reason we recommend Londolozi to everyone we know is because of its heart – and actions – for Mother Earth and all of her creatures. Thanks to the Vartys and everyone there, a million times: Thanks!

I applaud Londolozi for it’s determined and continuious drive to insure safety of all animals on the reserve. My prayer is zero poaching will become a reality soon and that other reserves will eagerly join in. Conservation is a must!

Well said Amanda. We all sail this spaceship called Earth through the galaxy together and it is crucial that we conserve all the resources we can and work jointly (in JV’s terms) to “Tread lightly on the Earth” to sustain our environment and its inhabitants for generations to come. It sounds a little corny but it’s heartfelt!

Amanda, Thank you for reminding us of the incredible work that is being done to protect wildlife in your region. -0- kills is a fabulous goal!
