African Wildlife Species

African Wildlife Species Page 945X

Why are we so drawn to Africa’s wildlife?

Could it be that they are the icons we grow up with? Remember movies like Born Free, the Jungle Book, Lion King, Bambi and more recently Madagascar. Sadly today’s real life wild lions, rhino, elephant, giraffe and zebra are in serious trouble of going the way of the Dodo bird… extinct!

By sharing information and facts about these icons we hope to make them more real and interesting… and worth your time to get involved to help save.
