Worldwide, we all grapple with a shared challenge: climate change. In Africa, it’s high time we grasp our unique role in the fight.
Oppenheimer Generations Research and Conservation (OGRC) supports a stronger, louder voice from Africa, and through its partners, has developed key programmes focussed on addressing and mitigating climate change.
Environmental scientists should step out of their silos if they want their research to make an impact, says Duncan MacFadyen, head of Oppenheimer Generations Research and Conservation.
Worried about population growth and the pressures of feeding a hungry planet? Don’t have a cow, cultivate one rather. Meanwhile, venison might help us buck the trend.
We are all in a desperate race for net-zero to halt the changing climate. Plus we are in the middle of an unprecedented biodiversity crisis, e.g., wild mammals now reported to make up only 2% of the global land mammalian biomass (the majority of which is livestock).
It’s easy to be laid low by all that ails our planet. But the cure lies in taking incremental steps, celebrating small wins and building on them.
The consumption of wild meat remains a morally contested and controversial issue in conservation policy and science.
Pressing environmental problems are coming home to roost. Smart rangeland management can help change this, but we must act now, while learning from the past.
Boosting biodiversity could benefit farmers back pocket, writes Laylaa Teixeira Sampaio.
