For The Love of Wildlife - Chris Mercer and Beverley Pervan ( Lion Farm Namibia)
Through no fault of the seller, the book has as yet not reached me - this is no doubt due to the postal strike. The seller sent me a reference number

Thanks so much for the kind positive rating despite you not having yet received the book. Here's hoping that the PO situation is resolved soon!
