@africanparksnetwork @natgeo @stevewinterphoto @Zakouma_National_Park in Chad, is one of the most amazing ecosystems on the planet. Zakouma is just one of 15 parks managed by conservation NGO African Parks (@africanparksnetwork). If you want to see wild plains teeming with lions, leopards, herds of elephants, giraffe, and now rhinos (they just reintroduced black rhinos after a 50-year absence) and no tourists - go to Zakouma - check out the lodges there and in the other parks the manage in 8 other countries via their website. Tourism revenue goes back to the parks they manage and important community projects like education, healthcare and improved livelihoods. What is happening in Zakouma is one of the most hopeful stories in conservation. The park was once ravaged by poaching and insecurity. More than 4,000 elephants, which was 95% of the population, were slaughtered between 2002 to 2010 for the sale of their ivory – and poachers wreaked havoc on both the wildlife and people who lived there. By 2010, only 450 elephants remained. That same year, @africanparksnetwork signed a long-term agreement with the government of Chad to fully manage Zakouma and change the trajectory of the park. They built a ranger team and implemented effective law enforcement measures and community networks, and today poaching has been practically eliminated. The elephant population is finally on the rise for the first time in a decade. Elephants have surpassed 550 individuals, and not one has been lost to poaching since January 2016. Last year @africanparksnetwork counted 81 elephant calves under the age of three years old; in 2011 they counted one. Without the support of local communities this would not work. The park is the largest employer in the region; thousands of people are getting an education and healthcare, and decency and civility, along with life, have found their back to this once forgotten place.

@africanparksnetwork @natgeo @stevewinterphoto There are nine sub-species of leopards on earth, occurring from the southern tip of South Africa's Cape mountains to the island of Java in southeast Asia. The leopard can live in true deserts, tropical forests and even in the Russian tundra where it drops to below 10 degrees celsius! The biggest threats facing leopards in Africa include the illegal skin trade, wire snare poaching and human-leopard conflict. @Zakouma_National_Park in Chad, @africanparksnetwork, is one of the most amazing ecosystems on the planet – the abundance of life found here is off the charts.

@africanparksnetwork @stevewinterphoto @natgeo A rare Kordofan Giraffe with a murmuration of birds at a waterhole in Zakouma National Park in Chad! Kordofan giraffes are thriving in Zakouma National Park in Chad. Zakouma was established as a National Park in 1963, with the goal to conserve the last remaining 50 individuals of Kordofan giraffe left in all of Chad, due to decades of poaching which had almost completely destroyed them. But today, in this park, they are flourishing. We counted more than 900 giraffes in the last survey in 2016, making Zakouma home to more than half of the entire wild Kordofan giraffe population in Africa! I just returned from @Zakouma_National_Park in Chad, one of the most amazing ecosystems on the planet – I have been to so many places throughout my career @natgeo – the amazing abundance of life found here is off the charts.

@africanparksnetwork Guards that are coming back from their 12 days in the field, protecting the park, meeting their friends or neighbors or family members that are also guards – getting ready to head out to the field. Communities protecting their park and all the animals!!! Zakouma National Park in Chad is one of the most remarkable stories about transformation. In 2010, African Parks, on invitation by the Chadian Government, signed a long-term agreement to manage Zakouma and stop the bloodshed. Our first step was to overhaul law enforcement, but it wasn’t for the faint of heart. In 2012, six of our rangers were gunned down execution-style during their morning prayers. But our rangers, with their indomitable spirits, didn’t give up. Because of their efforts and effective community work, only 24 known elephants have been lost to poaching since 2010. Along with providing law enforcement, we built ‘Elephant Schools’ for local communities, providing desks, blackboards and teachers’ salaries, helping more than 1,500 children get an education. We built airstrips, and VHF radios were installed so community members could contact our control room with information about any illegal activity. People were employed to help manage the park, making Zakouma one of the largest employers in the region. With law enforced and security reclaimed, tourists began to visit, delivering needed revenue back to the park and local communities. And then something miraculous happened. Elephants were able to be elephants once again, and for the first time in years, they began to breed and could raise their young. In early 2017, we counted 81 calves under the age of three. In 2011, we counted one. Elephants have now surpassed 527 individuals and are on the rise for the first time in a decade. We’ve come a long way since 2010. The story of Zakouma is of a park rising from the ashes and becoming an unlikely tale of redemption, for people and animals alike. Our work in Zakouma would not be possible without the support of our partners: The Republic of Chad, the EU, Foundation Segré and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to name a few.

@africanparksnetwork @natgeo @stevewinterphoto Zakouma National Park’s six black rhinos have been dehorned. The horns were removed and transported away from the park to a secure location in the nation’s capital. In addition to these security and protective measures, a horn trimming regime will continue on a frequent basis going forward. The dehorning, which was part of the initial plan in caring for these rhinos in Zakouma, was carried out by experienced vets who took every step to ensure that dehorning was done safely and did not cause any harm to the rhino. This step was carefully researched and planned, and studies suggest there is no long-term or social impact of dehorning, as long as all the rhinos in an area are dehorned. There are fewer than 5,000 wild black rhinos remaining in the world today – which is the result of being heavily targeted by poachers who are killing these animals, who have been around for millions of years, simply for the illegal sale of their horns. In a historic move, the first six black rhinos were reintroduced to Zakouma National Parkin May bringing back the species after a nearly 50-year absence. Dehorning them is one of the many security measures we are taking to reduce the risk of poaching. We have spent the last eight years making Zakouma safe for these rhinos, and all the other wildlife in the park thanks to our rangers and community-based conservation initiatives.Together with the government of Chad, our rangers, and the surrounding communities we are ensuring these rare black rhinos are protected and have an opportunity to breed and thrive for the benefit of future generations to come.
