Being charged by two frustrated black rhinos while WWF CEO Dr Morné du Plessis yells at me to hold on, a drowsy rhino dragging a dozen grown men through the bush before finally being calmed, another two embroiled in a kerfuffle before chasing off a white rhino (twice its size!) that happened upon the site – the first few hours of my day.In contrast to their capture, today is a blazer with...

By Melissa du PreezAs I write this, I'm overlooking the hilly landscape of one of WWF's Black Rhino Range Expansion Project (BRREP) sites in KwaZulu-Natal on a Sunday afternoon.

Blog: “Why join the navy, when you can be a pirate!”

06 October at 02:00 AM, via WWF

When I heard Steve Jobs utter these words, it felt like he had been voyeuristically watching my life. I grew up in a typical small Indian town in Pretoria in the 80's and 90's. Our town lay in a valley surrounded by veld.  In this veld was a menagerie of animals, from wild hare and rabbits, to monitor lizards (often called “likkewaan”), snakes and a myriad of birds and bugs.  I would spend...
