Liwonde National Park has remarkable biodiversity and houses several endangered species of animal, including six black rhino. Due to encroachment and poaching over at least twenty years, the animal population has been majorly depleted and are in desperate need to replace the amount of animals lost to these circumstances. Poaching for ivory has been a large issue in this area, which has impacted the amount of elephants and especially rhino. In association with Wilderness Safaris conservation program, animals have been relocated or reintroduced from other areas of Africa already in an attempt to rebuild the wildlife lost, and several anti-poaching programs are also in place to make this beautiful valley as it once was. These anti-poaching programs need to be maintained and supported, but they can't do it alone. If you can help with this cause, all the people of Malawi would surely thank you to make the one of the natural wonders whole again. If you wish to help with this cause, visit the Wilderness Safaris related projects of conservation in Liwonde National Park at http://wildernesssafaris.co.za/conservation/related_projects/overview.jsp?project=2361 to see how you can assist, or for more information. At this site, you can find multiple realted projects such as 'Care for the Rare' and the 'Endangered species of Malawi Circle.' Thank you for your your time.
