Letter to DHL employees re rhino (Eliska) translocation One of the things of which I am most proud is the support DHL has given to supporting animal conservation. [more]

Rhino translocation The upcoming rhino translocation of Eliska (booked for next week) is now fully arranged and DHL are doing an amazing job of organising their side of everything, including donating the flight, which is the most massive contribution. Dvur Kralove Zoo in Czech Republic and the Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) are in constant communication, and the move is being filmed by Maverick. DHL are organising the social media and the hasktag #DHLRhino will be in evidence on Twitter. [link]

Penguin press release 7th September 2010
Daily Mail

'Born Wild describes his (Tony)breathless roller coaster across the African savannah with passion and humour, an inspirational tale of what one committed individual can achieve against the odds.'
Sunday Telegraph, Brian Jackman

 'The book ends with him (Tony) returning to Kora, invited back by the Kenyans to the happy landscape of his wild youth. They want him to restore the area to the state it was in before Adamson was murdered and Fitzjohn himself was run off the land - and it is a challenge he is relishing. Which makes this a truly African story and the author, despite his place of birth, a true African.'
Daily Telegraph, Graham Boynton
