Anyone who spends time beside the sea knows there's a wealth of 'treasure' to be found, be it natural or manufactured, living or washed up. Beachcombing in South Africa is a friendly guide to the seashore's rich pickings.

Short chapters such as Floaters and drifters, Sea-beans, Sponges, Eggs and egg cases, and many more, detail what can be found and how to interpret or identify specimens. Items may reveal links to activities or biological events in the nearby ocean - or, perhaps, thousands of miles away. They may relate to human activities, such as fish or bird tagging, or be oceanographic instruments separated from their moorings. Or they may be part of the growing menace of flotsam and jetsam from the planet's burgeoning human population.

This book will enhance the experience of beachcombing, satisfy curiosity about finds, and contribute to a better understanding of the life in our oceans and along our shores.

Populations of cities have grown at unprecedented rate, consuming ever more land, placing severe strain on the environment and also on cash-strapped governments. Nature needs to be reintroduced to our cities.

This book is focused on urban nature conservation, aspects that will resonate with advisors to local government, people interested in bringing back nature to our cities and anyone with a keen interest in nature.

Our ecosystems are under threat and green infrastructure needs to be better managed so that there will be less fragmentation and habitat loss. All of us have to live more towards a sustainable urban nature environment. This book guides all of us how to address nature on our doorsteps. There are 214 photos, 6 tables and 25 illustrations on principles of urban nature conservation.

The book informs how to participate and synchronise lifestyles to contribute to sustainable urban nature environments. Urban wetlands, watercourses, riparian zones, buffer zones, ecological corridors and functions are explained. The annexures in the book described owl boxes, bird feeders, earthworm bins and how to produce organic compost. What is important is that more and more people move to cities and city developments encroach upon nature areas. These encroachments can be managed to accommodate ecologically sensitive urban nature areas. These areas can be utilised in ways that it will benefit the environment people live in.

Hierdie stories is inheems soos kremetartbome, onderhoudend soos 'n kuier om 'n hardekoolvuur.
Die skrywer en sy vrou het 'n huis in Sabiepark, 'n private natuurreservaat aan die Sabierivier, waar wilde diere name het, soos die luiperd Vin Diesel en die vlakvark Brood. Waar 'n hiëna vir aandete by die stoeptafel opdaag. Hulle het met die jare boekgehou van buitengewone verskynings en gebeurtenisse. Sy stories oor Sabiepark en die Wildtuin blaai die veld oop en gee ons 'n intieme kykie op wilde diere. Dit stem tot nadenke, soos die uitstekende “Skurwe slaapmaats” waar die leser leer hoe om 'n olifant te benader: met groot nederigheid, neergeslane oë en geknakte nek. Daar is interessante inligting, soos dat baldadige jong olifantbulle uit die trop verban word totdat hulle geleer het om hulle te gedra. Dat olifantkalwe 100 tot 120 kg kan weeg.
Die stories word gekenmerk deur fyn waarneming, 'n droë humorsin en buitengewone woordvaardigheid.

Here's another batch of David Muirhead's unrespectable creatures, following his successful earlier volume of hilarious animal accounts (The Bedside Ark ). It offers a wealth of accurate information on each of the profiled creatures, while revealing their softer sides and the near-human frailties from which they suffer - and temptations for which they fall. Delightful, humorous pen-and-ink sketches accompany many of the stories.

Muirhead's mix of humour, mythology, anecdotal tales and folklore builds quirky and captivating portraits of each animal, and makes for a lighthearted, funny - as well as illuminating - read.

This new anthology, offering something different from the standard collection of animal CVs, will appeal to anyone interested in humorous writing and the natural world, no matter their age (from teen to adult) or level of knowledge.

World-renowned wildlife trackers Alex van den Heever and Renias Mhlongo have spent more than two decades working together, tracking leopards and lions at Londolozi, jaguars in South America and grizzly bears in the United States.
In Changing a Leopard's Spots, Alex shares stories from his life with Renias, including the successes, failures, dramas, laughter, disappointments and highlights. As they experience numerous adventures, Alex and Renias learn to trust and rely on one another - both in order to stay alive, in a literal sense because of the sometimes dangerous environments in which they work, but also to develop a deep and meaningful relationship.

By challenging each other and learning from one another they break down social, cultural, racial and personal boundaries and obstacles that often divide South Africans; and in the process, the two men forge an unbreakable bond.

EPIC LAND is a celebration in pictures and words of the arresting beauty of the landscapes of Namibia and of the centrality of land in the culture, history, politics and daily lives of its people.

The dramatic scenery of remote deserts, mountains, mystical trees and stormy shores are the equal of any. Through her captivating photographs and absorbing text, Amy Schoeman shares with the reader the strange beauties of her life's passion.

Waking up to roaring lions near her doorless dung hut; encountering elephants while walking with other women to fetch water from a distant spring; realising that older Himba people saw themselves as part of nature, not as separated from it nor at its apex ... These were just some of the experiences that would change the way Margaret Jacobsohn thought about wildlife conservation - and our modern deficiency in ecological intelligence. So, the Capetonian journalist and environmental writer turned researcher became a Namibian and helped pioneer an African way of doing conservation and tourism.

Famed for its spectacular landscapes and gloriously unclad geology, Namibia is a country that wears its skeleton on the outside, the author says.

Similarly, her story is as gritty and real as Namib sand. The conflicts and mishaps, the triumphs and breakthroughs - what it takes to break paradigms and do decades of community based conservation in remote and inaccessible places, earning some of the top international environmental awards along the way.

A book that will make you think.
