There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

I get so frustrated with the ‘no intervention’ blanket policy…I would advocate for a case by case for exception.

I agree I hate the blanket policy. Like for Gores case, IMHO, he surviving, thriving I might say, so why not dart him and stick that thing back in where it belongs. I do not get it.

In the end I think that this "policy" of non-intervention even in exceptional cases has a cash fund, treatments like this demand a reasonable price and in a place where the lion population is stable is probably not an incentive for interventions, these factors should count a lot, cases involving humans such as the use of traps there is an effort because this denigrates the image of the reserves before the public. I could be wrong? perhaps, perhaps there are people there truly interested in the welfare of the animals and not only in the profit they make, but we must not forget the business fund that exists behind it.

Ultimately this is nature. He is still around so he didnt need the intervention. And if he didnt. His life just wasnt meant to be and someone else gets his opportunities. Male lions are quite expendable like that.

Intervening would just be ruining someone's elses life.

Agreed. Furthermore, the whole process or darting and treating an animal takes a lot of time, energy and resources, which is another reason why they limit interventions to man-made cases. It only makes sense to prioritize resources and manpower towards the more immediate and pervasive threats to wildlife (i.e. habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict and poaching), especially given that the Kruger lion population is stable and viable.

Three of the N'waswishaka males were located today in the afternoon doing what lions do best during the day, resting in the shade. They raised their heads every so often to check on their surroundings and then went straight back to resting once again.

2 of the Ndhzenga males prospecting new land and a new pride along the Sand River in the heart of MalaMala. They were later joined by the 3rd male while the 4th was seen moving north across our southern boundary…
