What will happen to the Bui Hippos? Print E-mail
ImageHippos have survived at Bui because they do not have to compete with people and livestock. When the dam is constructed all their current foraging areas will be flooded and the animals will be forced to move upstream to find food. This will bring them into direct conflict with people because riverine areas outside the park are farmed by people and heavily grazed by domestic animals. The impact of 400 (or 200, according to the most recent surveys commissioned by the Ghanian government) hippos moving into areas inhabited by humans is not difficult to imagine.

Savannah Monitor Book

 

Our pet-owners' guide to savannah monitor lizard is the first ever written by people who have studied the animals in the wild and bred them in captivity. There are at least seven books in print about the savannah monitor, but we think this is the only one worth reading! Last few available
