Clive Walker  

In this new edition, a number of additions and amendments have been made in order to improve the book. These include updated text, spoor, and skulls and full-colour photographs for each of the species. Nama and Damara names of animals have also been added, where available, to the existing list of African common names and a number of distribution maps have also been updated. The author Clive Walker is one of the best known conservationists in southern Africa. He founded the Endangered Wildlife Trust, which today runs over 90 projects, protecting threatened species and eco-systems throughout Southern Africa. The Trust runs wilderness trails and other education programmes and is credited, in particular, with helping to save the black rhino from extinction. Unlike many leading conservationists Clive did not come from an academic background. He is an artist. Growing up in Africa, riding elephants at the Johannesburg Zoo, camping in the Kruger, even hunting in Mozambique, he imbibed the wild. Hunting gave him an intimate contact with animals, but as he saw the devastation of species, especially the rhino, mainly through poaching, he became a passionate conservationist.
