Great White sharks, attracted by an offshore seal colony, have brought success to the adjacent fishing village of Gansbaai along the southern African coast. A flourishing shark cage diving industry has sprung up, bringing jobs and money, and so benefiting almost the entire community. Tourists come from far and near to experience the thrill of a real-life brush with the legendary 'Jaws'. Shark Town, as it has become known, is booming. Then one day, the sharks disappear. Slowly at first, but with gathering momentum, the word spreads: cage diving off Gansbaai can no longer promise the thrill of an encounter. The crowds thin, the boats remain at their moorings, and the once bustling community waits as their livelihoods tail off. Entrepreneurs and scientists alike are baffled.

But it's not long before shark carcasses start washing up on the beaches. These, together with some coincidental sightings of another apex predator in the vicinity, are the first leads to the possible causes and culprits. Against the clamour and thrill of the cage-diving season in full swing, Richard Peirce visits the unfolding drama and explores what's behind these strange events.

Ninety percent of the world's megafauna (its larger creatures) have disappeared since humans migrated from Africa and fanned out across the rest of the world. Within a very short time the megafauna - mammoths, mastodons, woolly rhinoceros and the huge carnivores that preyed upon them were extinct. Only Africa seems to have escaped: not unscathed, but not entirely vanquished either.

This book:
describes the history and extent of human impact on the worlds wildlife (marine included), good and bad;
it examines, in particular, the status of wildlife in Africa - the world's last great megafaunal sanctuary;
and it questions whether Africa's wildlife has reached its lowest ebb, and whether it is about to witness the turn of the tide?
The author sounds a note of cautious optimism: conservation initiatives have gained a new urgency in the 21st century, and governments in Africa and elsewhere are showing increasing resolve to tackle poaching. Vast transfrontier parks, many still in development, have the potential to provide a sustainable habitat for the continent's megafauna.

If we can muster both local and international support, name and shame the rogue nations, and build a practical conservation model that does not conflict with human needs, then Africa's wildlife can perhaps be saved.

Peacocks & Picathartes is a celebration of the diversity of African birds, focusing on families that occur only in Africa as well as iconic families and species that, despite having close relatives in other parts of the world, seem to embody something of Africa.
Watson's anecdotal style captures vividly his encounters with prized species, such the secretive White-necked Picathartes and the elusive Congo Peacock. He conveys the sheer delight mousebirds take in 'being what they are', and reveals the surprise discovery in 1991 of a new partridge in Tanzania's Udzungwa Mountains.
Drawing on precolonial and current-day avian accounts, he offers his own insights based on a lifetime of personal observations in the wilds of Africa - recounting unforgettable expeditions, quirky bird behaviour, jittery taxonomy, moments of rare good luck - and much more.
Both informative and entertaining, this book captures the essence of African bird life, and will appeal to bird enthusiasts across the spectrum.

Demand for wild animals vastly outstrips availability. There are simply not enough rhinos, elephants, tigers, and countless other creatures left to satiate our desire to wear, eat, display, and make medicine from them. Despite experts warning that a host of species - some beloved by the public, others, like the pangolin, virtually unknown - are well on their way to being made extinct within the next decade, the illegal wildlife trade is one of the largest contraband markets in the world. Yet the war on poaching is vastly underfunded and unacknowledged. Traffickers operate with impunity, while those committed to stopping such wildlife crimes battle rampant corruption and a lack of resources. Rachel Nuwer takes us on a harrowing journey to the frontlines of the illegal wildlife trade…
