Sad that we as the human race has so little regard for this beautiful blue planet we call home. Let’s all do our bit, wherever we live or wherever we travel and to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.

Well said Babs. We as humans are destroying the oplanet and it iss our individual duty to do all we can to right our wrongs. There is no planet B. Thank you.

I agree with you!

Global warming is rapidly changing and it needs people with good insight and knowledge of how to pertain the ground and habitat where the animals feed. Such a pity that our beautiful country has been hurt because we did not listened earlier to the warnings of global warming . We are to blame for our situation and should do our part in trying to restore it as best we can.

Interesting blog, Robyn. Sometimes I wonder about climate change.
There are certainly also lots of other facts/ factors that influence the number of animals or the migration patterns and the environment in general.
In Tansania e.g. the enormous increase in births of human babies, in the number of people putting strain on all the land there, especially the Serengeti. They built a railwayline, crossing the Serengeti, which means that animals are seriously disturbed.
Wars decimated the numbers of animals or brought them even close to extinction in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, The Kongo, you name it… Now some animals are reintroduced into some countries or areas of countries. All this puts – I believe- far more pressure on the environment than climate change. The more people there are, the more land/ water/ and other resources they need. The more wars there are, the more the animals suffer… A vicious circle and climate change is just one part of it. And it also depends on the number of people. A world of 11 billion people is going to happen – a nightmare. And this also means an enormous increase in human habitations on land taken away from nature and an increase in Co2.

A very interesting blog Robyn. It is obvious from reading the blogs that Londolozi is doing its very best to be environmentally responsible. Thank you for sharing with us.

It’s hard to even come to grips with the possibilities of climate change. It’s happening though and we can either be part of the solutions or just keep being a part of the problem. If everyone makes small changes even what a start it would be.

Thank you Robyn for your comments on this complicated issue and how it might affect the flora and fauna in Londolozi. It seems sometimes, that now that we know some of the causes behind climate change, people still doubt the scientific research. It’s unfortunate, but until earth’s inhabitants that reside in unaffected regions, are subjected to the extreme effects of climate change such as drought, extreme temperatures, floods, etc, progress will remain slow. My hope is that concerned people in each nation will put pressure on their governments and industries to begin the process of reversing climate change, otherwise our natural world may never recover.

Change is a constant now. It is happening a more rapid pace than in the past, adapting is going to be the key to survival of everything. I only hope humans will continue to be more active in their awareness and actions to give everything the best chance for survival.
