the cart used to bring energy solutions and resource to. be created interactive content to change the next generation about environmental protection and were determined to build something here for the next generation. to use the multimedia environment series w. . welcome to global three thousand this week we find out just how desperate life has become for many farmers in australia. we need to members of a very special orchestra in egypt that offers visually impaired women a unique opportunity. and we head to symbolic way to look at what conservationists
10:31 pm
are doing to protect an endangered species. african wild dogs are extremely successful hunters that kill rate per chases around eighty percent that's far more than lions for example the pack animals are key to culling herbivore populations which helps keep the ecosystem balanced. but they're under threat wild dogs used to be a common sight in africa savannah's in the mid twentieth century there were around half a million of them. but their range has grown more and more limited and their numbers have been decimated. in this week's global ideas we head to south east in zimbabwe where our reporter yoking schneider visited the survey river valley to meet conservationists working to give these unique animals a future. it's seconds. as
10:32 pm
the day cools down and life slowly returns to the bush in southeast zimbabwe. leading the african wild dogs spent the hottest part of the day sleeping in the shade. now in the late afternoon the park comes together ready to go out hunting. the perfect time for just a cold water mire to check up on the park she heads up a conservation project for wild dogs in the southern valley conservancy it's a protected area that covers three thousand square kilometers she spent years working with these animals. and this is our first of pack and we've called them that because as you can see they've got beautiful and very distinct and colorful markings and they also happen to be one of the biggest pets in the conservancy so there are body live in adults not all started off the dating season or the year twelve they had fourteen puppies but we're down to seven now and they're also is
10:33 pm
a very relaxing the beach added back as you can see so fantastic for us for working with them and for munching and research purposes while dogs are among the most endangered carnivores in africa and with population numbers of around seven thousand at most the son of a valley conservancy provides a large area for them to roam freely which is exactly what they need to survive. impala antelopes are their first choice of prey they are incredibly social pack animals so. it's just the way that they interact with each other the way they take care of each other where they take care of the puppies opec members pull together to look after each other very different from other social convoys for example line when wild dogs either kill the adults one at the puppies eat first they will look after the injured they will take me back to the injured. the survey conservancy was
10:34 pm
originally formed from an amalgamation of large private ranches that finances itself through tourism and controlled sustainable hunting this means endangered species are protected and the area isn't sacrificed for farmland outside the conservancy little of the original bush remains the local population has grown and more and more land has gone over to farming leading to increased contact between wildlife and humans. the conservationists now work closely with local communities to protect the animals. teaches school students about how the wild animals live. if. he and his team visit the schools three times a year. many of the children are fascinated the local villagers often have a very different take on how to deal with the wildlife in their area. they traditionally age this girl i don't equate it to the conservancy use. the name of
10:35 pm
the chase the my way if the. uppity did us but if there you'd be force be nomadic you would be in for for meat so you think the knowledge which we are bringing on this end of it when you know we have to quit fused with it even the left let's kind of water and also the place be she's as. was she by a teachers the children about the food chain and explains what happens when one species dies out completely the idea is to help the children see the importance of conservation was no photos example i think it's great to learn about protecting the animals no one. and the no no i know that if pictures come i need to report it to the police or my teachers that will not only do. the wild dog project also finances books and teaching materials and even pay said to wish and fees for some
10:36 pm
of the students this school started working with the conservationists and twenty thirteen head master clinic when your says a lot has changed since then you can actually see that even if you see a snake in the school is often out they will tell you that oh there's a lake just to these things they see music leave this think it's good to leave because it clearly even put it for the it was the steal of those kids that if a troll does it to this school we have an ear for it kid you are is that for putting it. back in the conservancy the pack are hunting close to a kill. but this world of beast is a little too big for them still it provides a good sparring partner for the younger dogs to hone their hunting skills. so after a little excitement predators and potential prey decide to go their separate ways.
10:37 pm
but african wild dogs are themselves exposed to danger even inside the park as we discover the next day ranger kinkade civil is out on patrol when a colleague contacts him. still for work to dog dead chromosome a. the ranger immediately heads to the scene where jessica water myrick is waiting for him it soon becomes clear the situation is even worse than they thought since we got a report this morning that there were two dogs it reported was they were still fighting the wise so we rushed as soon as possible and got it within twenty minutes of the report but on forty bucks on the gotcha the dogs had already struggled themselves and suffocated. it's a senseless killing the dogs weren't even the target of the poachers. they set the
10:38 pm
wire trap to catch antelopes the dogs tried to free themselves by biting through the wire but the copper was too tough. and worse still it's the alpha male that's been killed along with another adult dog the best hunters in the pack for the next step will be for our scouts to work with some of the scouts and to move through this area non-sweet and make sure we can pick up as many of these was as possible ideally you pick the was up before this happens. the wire is almost invisible in the dense bush and the area is vast but the rangers managed to find around fifty wire traps dogs all unique to africa we don't find them anywhere else and as conservationists working in africa we have a duty to to protect them to make sure they stay a few generations and they are completely genetically distinct species and once they've gone they caught. the rest of the pack will stick together until the
10:39 pm
juveniles are fully grown fortunately the alpha female has survived unscathed otherwise the pack would have broken up but with her mate now gone hopes of gaining a new litter of puppies this year now looks lamb. almost half of the australian land mass is now devoted to agriculture some of the territory is used to raise grain but much more is given over to life stock nearly eighty percent of the country's agricultural products are sold abroad in two thousand and seventeen harvests were particularly good then a drought in two thousand and eighteen through the sector into a tailspin still production continues to rise but only large scale farms are raking in substantial profits in the last thirty years around forty percent of australia's small farmers have given up that's had enough and devastating effect on them and

10:42 pm
a pharmacist she was fifteen and we were making the decision on what we had made the decision to sell the farm because we were going back before the banks come and said get out we decided to get out before that happened. it was a rational decision but her husband couldn't cope with it emotionally james hung himself. it's a lost ball it's our loss we live and breathe the land i love it actually. to the point of not looking after themselves. marius convinced that if small farmers were able to more at the job her husband might still be alive. farmers in australia don't receive any subsidies. the number of farmers has fallen by forty percent in the last thirty years it was so busy just trying to survive on our own farms we don't often get
