a very special castra in egypt that offers visually impaired women a unique opportunity. and we had to embark way to look at what conservationists are doing to protect an endangered species. of. african wild dogs are extremely successful hunters they're killed right chases around eighty percent but it's far more than lions for example the pack animals are keen to culling populations which helps keep the ecosystem balanced. but they're under threat while the dogs used to be a common sight in africa's savannah's in the mid twentieth century there were around tough 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
6:32 pm
yoking schneider visited the survey river valley to meet conservationists working to give these unique animals a future. six seconds. as 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 meyer to check up on the pack 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 pack and we've called them that because as you can see they've got beautiful and very distinct and colorful
6:33 pm
markings and they also happen to be one of the biggest packs in the conservancy so there are body live i don't snarl 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 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 survey 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 or pack members pull together to look after each other and very different from other social convoys for example line when wild dogs either kill the adults or let the puppy see first they
6:34 pm
will look after the injured they will take me back to the injured. the survey conservancy was 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 want to do want to convict or chibuye or 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
6:35 pm
a very different take on how to deal with the wildlife in their area. day to just knowingly this gully i don't equate it to the conservancy is. the name of the chase them away if the. uppity did us but if there it befalls be nomadic you want them for for meat so you think the knowledge tree upbringing you know this if it were in the snow we have to quit seized with it if they left let's go and it was it was for the prey species as. you know it. was you buy a teaches 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 we're not going to go no no i know that if poachers come i need to report it to the police or my teachers that will work with them. in the wild dog
6:36 pm
project also finances books and teaching material. and even pay situation fees for some of the students this school started working with the conservationists and twenty thirteen had masterly and when your says a lot has changed since then you can actually see that even if you see it's like this is a flat out they will tell you that oh it doesn't lead to these things they see these leave these think it's good to leave it was it only even if it did for the it was of those kids that do. to this school we've lived it kid you are is that for puts you. 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
6:37 pm
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. but african wild dogs are themselves exposed to danger even inside the park as we discover the next day ranger kinkade's ever was out on patrol when a colleague contacts him. still for work to dog dared to chromosome in. 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 that were caught and was they were still fighting the whys so we rushed just soon as possible and got it within twenty minutes of the report but unfortunately gotcha the dogs had already strangled themselves and suffocated.
6:38 pm
it's a senseless killing the dogs weren't even the target of the poachers. they set the 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. the next step will be for our scouts to work with some of the scots 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 conservationist working in africa we have a duty to to protect them to make sure they stay for future generations and they
6:39 pm
are completely genetically distinct species i once said gone they caught the rest of the pack will stick together until the 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

6:43 pm
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 a chance to get together. and support each other and and go up against these big multinationals or whatever and say hey we need to be paid for what we're doing . mary managed to lease the farm she's very open about telling james the story almost everyone knows farmers who suffer from depression and she says they need to talk more about the strain never under. any promise to do it is a whole different kettle of fish because all farmers are very stoic they tend to carry on just doing what they need to do and tough and had a house. mountain but who's been a farmer and social worker for more than thirty years he says you need to appreciate the nice moments like heading out to the sheep on
