Elephants have long been targeted by humans: not only are they killed for their ivory, but their extraordinary strength, intelligence and charisma have seen some of them captured, chained and effectively jailed for life.
Bully and Induna are two African elephants, both orphaned in organised culling operations and destined for lives in captivity. Growing up far apart and quite differently, Bully (a former animal film star) and the less fortunate Induna were both driven to react to their circumstances - Induna even killed one of his carers. Their individual situations reached a point where both were considered to be dangerous animals and were under threat of being put down.
This is the true story of their lives. Conservationist Richard Peirce presents their individual narratives and the twists and turns of their fortunes: the exploitation of these majestic but sensitive animals, how they each came to be trapped in unsuitable 'employment' and shunted about from one venue to the next, before finding one another - free at last - on a farm in Southern Africa. It's a gripping story, full of drama, danger, sadness and ultimate rescue.

The Kruger National Park, one of the largest and best-known conservation areas in the world, supports a remarkable diversity of birds. This attractive and handy field guide lists more than 500 species that have been recorded here, and provides full-colour photographs, detailed distribution maps and succinct information on 400 of these - all the species that a visitor is likely to encounter in the park. An informative introduction describes the park's underlying geology, vegetation types, climate and rainfall, and how these dictate bird distributions within the area.

Seabirds hold a special place in the hearts of birders, not least because of the challenge of getting to grips with a group of birds that is largely inaccessible, and living in an often hostile habitat. Guide to Seabirds of Southern Africa is the first book focusing exclusively on the nearly 1,000 birds that occur around the southern African coastline and adjacent Southern Ocean.

This book is primarily an identification guide, but the author also includes information about these birds' fascinating biology and behaviour. The text is richly supported with photographs, as well as distribution maps for all the birds. A detailed introduction covers, among other topics, seabird origins, havens, feeding, breeding and conservation, as well as how best to watch and photograph these enigmatic birds.

Guide to Seabirds of Southern Africa is an authoritative, first-of-its-kind, essential, volume for birders' libraries.

Predictability isn't a word you will find in any Bushveld dictionary, and the life of wildlife guardian Mario Cesare has been anything but. After years as warden of Olifants River Game Reserve, his feet are firmly planted in this magnificent slice of Big Five country to the west of the Kruger Park, where he has experienced a rich life packed full of incidents far from routine.
In Heart Of A Game Ranger, Cesare recounts some of these hair-raising, heart-breaking and heart-warming moments: a buffalo calf reunited with its pining mother, injured lions given second chances and rhinos lost, one by one, to poaching. Nestled among these tales, Cesare pays homage to the brave, dedicated and curious personalities engaged in a deadly combat on the most majestic of battlefields. Yet, while rhino poaching is by far the reserve's biggest problem, Cesare reveals how the daily struggles of a game ranger are so much broader - and the rewards, when they come, immense.

Heart Of A Game Ranger is a story of extremes, one of fierce loyalty and devastating betrayal where spectacular days that end in exhausted satisfaction and achievement are balanced by those that leave behind only despair and frustration. Seen through his eyes and spoken from the heart, Cesare tells a deeply personal story - not only of a life lived wild, but of the joy of Africa's incredible natural world.

The renowned zoologist Fritz Eloff became interested in the Kalahari lion in 1958 when he first heard a lion roaring from the red dunes surrounding the camp. So impressive was the earth-trembling sound that he decided to devote his studies to these predators. This meant that he also had to become familiar with the Kalahari, its dust, its intense heat during the day and freezing cold nights, its vegetation, all the mammals and birds that form part of the lion's food chain as well as the other predators the lion has to compete with. This book is the result of 40 years of extensive research and numerous exciting adventures. Written in an accessible style, it imparts information about the physical characteristics of the Kalahari lion, its habitat, role in the ecosystem and interaction with humans. The book concludes with the stories of a number of legendary male and female lions, and the author's view on the survival of these magnificent animals in an ever changing environment.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Fritz Eloff was professor of Zoology at the University of Pretoria and was also well known in rugby circles. He regularly participated in radio programmes on nature, thus becoming known for his expertise throughout South Africa.

Insectopedia uncovers the fascinating and infinitely varied world of insects. It explores their intriguing behaviour and biology - from mating and breeding, metamorphosis and movement to sight, smell, hearing and their adaptations to heat and cold.

A chapter on superorganisms probes the curious phenomenon of social communities among insects; another covers the critical role that these creatures play in maintaining the fragile balance of life on our planet.

The book concludes with a 60-page illustrated field guide, describing most insect orders and their main families.

Previously published as Insectlopedia of Southern Africa, this fully revised and redesigned edition includes up-to-date information throughout, an expanded ID section, and several hundred new photographs.

Die bekende dierkundige Fritz Eloff se bemoeienis met die Kalaharileeu het reeds in 1958 begin toe hy een aand teen sononder die koninklike brul van 'n leeu tussen die rooi duine hoor opklink het. So beïndruk was hy met die selfversekerde geluid wat die aarde behoorlik laat bewe het, dat hy besluit het hy moet die leeu behoorlik leer ken. Maar daarvoor moes hy die Kalahari, die tuiste van dié statige diere ook verstaan: '... sy stof, sy hitte en sy koue, sy plante en al die diere wat deel van die leeu se voedselketting uitmaak, ook diere met wie hy kompeteer vir voedsel.' So skryf hy vroeg in hierdie boek, wat die resultaat is van 40 jaar se uitgebreide navorsing en talle opwindende ervarings.In toeganklike taal word die Kalaharileeu se fisieke eienskappe, sy habitat, sy plek in die ekosisteem en sy interaksie met die mens dan bespreek. Ten slotte kom ook 'n paar legendariese leeumannetjies en -wyfies aan die bod en besin die skrywer oor die oorlewingskanse van die Kalaharileeu in 'n veranderende wêreld.

Die wildstreke van Suider-Afrika is uiteenlopend wat betref die landskap asook die dierelewe wat daar voorkom. Elke ekosisteem het unieke elemente maar ook uiteenlopende fasette wat met mekaar in wisselwerking is en nie in isolasie waardeer kan word nie.

- Lesersvriendelike teks en meer as 900 asemrowende foto's verklap wat die kreature van die Afrika-wildernis doen en waarom hulle dit doen, asook watter rol elkeen in die komplekse web van die natuur speel.
- Inligting is verklarend en beskryf gedrag, pleks van die ritse tegniese data tipies van ander veldgidse.
- 'n Kleurvolle en verbeeldingryke uitleg betrek die leser visueel by die inhoud.
- Ander kenmerke sluit in verspreidingskaarte, dierspore, ikone en tabelle vir vinnige identifisering.

If you read only one book this year, you want it to be this one ...

Rhino horn is worth more than cocaine, heroin or even gold on the black markets of Southeast Asia and China. Now, Killing for Profit brings you the story of one man's journey into a violent underworld where ruthless criminal syndicates will stop at nothing to attain their prize. It is a tale of greed and corruption, and of an increasingly desperate battle to save from extinction an animal that has existed for over 50 million years. Journalist Julian Rademeyer follows the bloody trail of the syndicates, poachers, smugglers, hunters and hustlers from the frontlines of the rhino wars in Zimbabwe and South Africa to the medicine markets of Vietnam, and into the lair of a wildlife-trafficking kingpin on the banks of the Mekong River in Laos ... This is investigative journalism at its gripping best.
