Zambia Farmers’ Day
Agricultural Society Showgrounds (Near Sunset Stadium)
Thabo Mbeki Rd,Lusaka Zambia, SE Africa
In early August, the people across Zambia celebrate Farmers’ Day each year. The celebration is marked by a National Agricultural show where the expansive showgrounds in Lusaka, Zambia, come alive with farmers, politicians, and ordinary citizens and their families.
There are games and exhibits and carnival rides for children, agricultural demos and awards, performances, food, and more! Zambians are very dependent on farming, with many people using it as their profession. We wish a happy farmers’ day to the people!
Farmers Day celebrates the country of Zambia's agricultural sector, praises their efforts in providing crops to feed the country, and gives them a day to relax from their labors. Governmental officials normally give speeches outlining the advances in the harvest of crops, particularly maize. But average citizens enjoy a variety of sporting events that are held on the Farmers Day weekend. In Zambia there is a Closed Tennis Championship on Farmers Day. Other events include soccer championships. http://www.holiday-times.com/public-holidays-zambia/

South Africa Women's Day
(Public Holiday) Across South Africa
Every year on 9 August we celebrate Women’s Day in South Africa, a public holiday that pays homage to the women of our nation; - the mothers, the wives, the sisters and the daughters who fought tirelessly against the tyranny of the Apartheid government.
Inaugurated in 1994, along with a free, democratic South Africa, the public holiday commemorates a 1956 protest lead by Lilian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph, Albertina Sisulu and Sophia Williams-De Bruyn. To rise up against the legislation that required black South Africans to carry the "pass" (special identification documents which infringed on their freedom of movement during the Apartheid era), approximately 20 000 women from all over the country took to the streets of Pretoria – many carrying the children of their white bosses on their backs – to stage a peaceful march to the Union Buildings.

Tanzania Animal Welfare Society
'Teaching compassion and finding sustainable solutions – colloquium gives hope to the donkeys of Tanzania'
Tanzania Animal Welfare Society P.O Box 10268 Dar E Salaam Tanzania
Morogoro is a city with an urban population of 206,868 (2002 census) in the southern highlands of Tanzania, 190 km west of Dar es Salaam. It is the capital of the Morogoro Region. In Tanzania, animal welfare is at a grassroots stage.
Facilitating behaviour change to improve livelihoods was explained through the Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) Approach. This is a way of making sure people understood the hazards they were posing for themselves. It is very similar to our working donkeys situation in the rural areas where donkeys are abused, overworked and have no access to veterinary care. We will try to show that donkeys feel pain and get tired, like people, so if they are living with wounds and abuse, it means they do very little work to support peoples’ livelihood. If working donkeys are cared for and people have compassion, then it’s possible the donkeys will be stronger and work efficiently to help people to earn a better living.
Training animal health workers is very much needed, and we will opt for this so working donkeys can have access to, at least, some veterinary care.The Community-Based Harness Development Initiative for pack donkeys, again presented by people from Ethiopia, is a most welcome solution for our situation in Tanzania. Wounds stemming from poor or no harnesses have been a major problem for 98% of working donkeys in Tanzania. The use of locally available materials for harnessing will help us fight severe wounds, which is a big issue for the large population of working donkeys in the central part of the country.

World Elephant Day ~Focus on African & Asian Ele's
World Elephant Day was created so the world can learn about and act on solutions to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. The elephant is loved, revered and respected by people and cultures around the world, yet we balance on the brink of seeing the last of this magnificent creature.
Poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity are just some of the threats to both African and Asian elephants. Working towards better protection for wild elephants, better management of their natural habitats, better treatment for captive elephants and when appropriate the reintroducing of captive elephants into natural, protected sanctuaries are the goals that numerous elephant conservation organizations are focusing on around the world.
*Watch the stunning movie on home page of their website. "Return to the Forest." World Elephant Day asks you to experience elephants in non-exploitive and sustainable environments where elephants can thrive under care and protection. On World Elephant Day August 12, express your concern, share your knowledge and support solutions for the better care of captive and wild elephants alike. Learn more http://worldelephantday.org/

~ Sterilisation and the reasons why it is so important
~ P rimary health care of animals at home

The following provides a list of common illegally-traded wildlife products to avoid. It is adapted from the US Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Law Enforcement’s Tips for Travelers.
It is not intended to be a comprehensive guide. Before buying any wildlife product, consumers should consider: what the product is made of, where it came from, and what documentation is required. See website to see how you can help African wildlife. http://www.laurelneme.com/index.php/take-action

Anti Poaching 1) Right now most of the anti-poaching teams in Chad are mainly soldiers from the State. These soldiers are doing an amazing job. However there are areas that are not protected and heavily populated by elephants. Our goal is to get rangers from local communities to protect these areas. We want to provide them with salaries, vehicles, phones, and any other equipment needed for the job.
SOS Elephants most notable efforts are to put an end to the slaughter of Chad’s elephants. We have been working very closely with the Head of State himself Idriss Déby Itno , who is very passionate about the survival and future of the elephants in Chad. We are in the field daily working to put an end to poaching. We have set up several goals that we are hoping to accomplish in the near future. Learn how to help. http://www.soselephants.org/

They have already been vaccinated and the two male lions will soon be vasectomised. As soon as they no longer require close monitoring, the three lions will be moved from their adaption enclosure to a larger enclosure, which will become their temporary home for the meantime.
However, FOUR PAWS together with the Princess Alia Foundation (PAF) is creating a new wildlife sanctuary in Jordan.

At the Project Area, nearly 100 chimpanzees live in four separate communities in enclosures measuring between 19 and 77 hectares each.
