"Prices have already reached unprecedented heights, with ivory commanding more than $1,000 per kilogram in Beijing, while rhino horn fetches more than 20 times that figure—far more precious than gold or cocaine"

"The fact is that elephants, rhinos, and other 'charismatic megafauna' are essential to sub-Saharan Africa’s vital tourism industries"

The story Newsweek has is a success story of bringing rhinos back to Zambia. It also talks about the potential for restoring them to other parks in Zambia including South Luangwa where both Zikomo Safari and Nsefu Wildlife are located. 

It is a story of hope in a time where we see little reason to do so. We wish them continued success!

Co-Founders Coe Lewis of iHeartMedia/KGB-FM and the Wallace Family of Zikomo Safari Camp, Mfuwe Zambia expressing their "honor and thrill to have the world-class wildlife crimes expert and specialist, whose work is respected and revered worldwide, join the NSEFU team to fight the epidemic that is poaching". Lewis stated further, "We are in the fight for our lives. 100 majestic elephants are massacred EVERY DAY for black market greed and it's catastrophic lust for ivory. Not to mention that there are less than 4,000 rhinos and less than 30,000 lions left in Africa!"
