Endangered Wildlife: Ecotourism and the Environment, a Vision is the fifth annual report of the Endangered Wildlife Trust. Vision 5 covers an impressive range of subjects from ecotourism to traditional medicine and business, and the environment to endangered species conservation. Of interest to ABC members is James Harrison's article on the recently published Southern African Bird Atlas and its implications for conservation and Kevin McCann's review of how Africa's largest electricity supplier is working with the Endangered Wildlife Trust to minimise the impacts of powerlines upon populations of Blue Anthropoides paradisea, Southern Crowned Balearica regulorum and Wattled Cranes Bugeramus carunculatus. Vision 5 is a fascinating read and has been described as a state of the environment report for southern Africa. Anybody with an active interest in conservation in southern Africa should definitely buy a copy.
