red-knobbed coots fighting by wildlife and conservation photographer Peter Chadwick.jpg
Gauteng Birding
“Eish you are VERY early,” the security guard at the entrance gate to Marievale Bird Sanctuary said while having a huge stretch and stifling a yawn after he had stood up from an extremely rickety looking plastic chair that was half hidden in the shadows of his security hut. He was not far off the mark, as only the...

Limpopo Birding
Thin wisps of mist rose off the reeds and sedges as the sun threw its first golden rays over the horizon. In the background White-Throated Robin-Chat, Woodland Kingfishers, Southern Boubou, Swainson’s Spurfowl and Crested Francolins announced the break of a new day, being quickly joined by the bubbling calls from Burchells Coucals and the much harsher calls from a...

Gauteng Birding
Gauteng is the undisputed heavy weight champion of South Africa when it comes to the economic driving force of the country and this brings with it a fast paced lifestyle - which has me as a small town “dorpenaar” cringing in the corner and looking for slower and more peaceful spots. Fortunately, one does not have to look far...
Black Collared Barbet by wildlife and conservation photographer Peter Chadwick.jpg
North West Birding
In the city of Johannesburg there is a continuous hustling and bustling, as people rush to meet one deadline after another, with seemingly never a moment to take a break to just breathe and enjoy! Fortunately, just one and a half hours away from this craziness and past the expansive waters of the Hartebeestpoort Dam lies the wild and...

North West Birding
Madikwe Game Reserve has long held a fascination for me and ever since I heard about its plans for development in the early 1990’s, I have kept a close eye on it without actually being able to visit the area. What really attracted me to it was the fact that it is where many of the arid western bird...

Photography
I am often asked which my favourite wildlife photographic experience has been. It is then expected that I mention something that renders from the bushveld where the "Big Five roam - something like the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti or watching a pride of lions pulling down a large Cape buffalo bull – the stuff that Africa is made...

Marine Conservation
The majority of our coastal and marine fish species are facing similar if not greater levels of overexploitation and poaching than the current rhino and elephant poaching epidemic. However, this is hardly reported on and there seems to be little concern from the public regarding this.

Marine Conservation
South Africa is blessed with one of the richest and most diverse coastlines and marine environments on the planet. Our coastline extends for nearly 3000km’s between the Mozambique border and Kosi Bay in the east and the Orange River estuary bordering Namibia in the west.
Elf in the hand by wildlife and conservation photographer Peter Chadwick.
Marine Conservation
Our oceans are critical to our very existence; it’s a simple matter of healthy oceans = healthy people. Besides providing us with food (today almost one in six people in the world rely on fish as their primary source of protein), oceans provide us with many other important services that our survival depends on. ...
rattling cisticola by wildlife and conservation photographer Peter Chadwick.jpg
KwaZulu Natal Birding
There is something magical about sitting on a high vantage point overlooking dense valley bushveld and listening to the calls of Purple-Crested Turaco’s and Black-Headed Orioles while in the distance herds of zebra and impala are just visible as they graze in the open grasslands. Sitting overlooking Weenan Game Reserve in KwaZulu Natal, I was in such a setting...
