Acacia Africa Highlights Endangered Species Day

With scientists concluding that one million of the planet's eight million species are threatened with extinction by humans, Acacia Africa claim there's an even greater need to raise awareness of Endangered Species Day (17 May). The landmark report by the U.N. stated that shrinking habitat, exploitation of natural resources, climate change and pollution are the main drivers of species loss.

Arno Delport, Sales & Marketing Manager at Acacia Africa comments, “Covering 12 countries in East and Southern Africa we introduce clients to a variety of parks, reserves and projects. On every visit offers travellers have the opportunity to learn about the work that’s being done on the ground so that they can better understand the issues faced by Africa’s endangered and critically endangered wildlife."

To help spread the word Acacia is discounting over 100 tours by up to 20%, with select departures in May, June, July and August.

The offer includes three of Acacia’s recently launched overland safaris, with savings of up to 20% on the 62-day South Africa to Kenya. The itinerary features visits to South Africa’s Mountain Zebra National Park, home to the endangered Mountain Zebra and the country’s Tsitsikamma Marine Protected Area, its threatened fish species considered more critically endangered than the black rhino; Namibia’s Etosha National Park where one of the largest populations of the critically endangered black rhino reside, Botswana's Okavango Delta, some of the world’s most endangered species of large mammal inhabiting Africa’s last remaining wetland wilderness, South Luangwa National Park, home to Zambia’s largest African wild dog population and Lake Malawi, an estimated 9% of its 458 fish species said to be endangered.
