2008 CALENDAR

Zebras are social animals communicating through changes in the positions of their ears and tail as well as by sound. The social group consists of a male and a few females, which stay in the same harem all their adult lives, remaining in a home range.


With evidence mounting of elephant intelligence, wide-ranging communication ability and apparent awareness of the feelings of their fellow group members, it suggests a need for a rise in their status, both on the intelligence spectrum and for protection against culling and poaching.

Cheetah are very vocal and can emit chirps, purrs, hums and yelps. The most striking contact call is a yelp that can carry for up to 2 kilometres.

The Outer Islands of Seychelles tells the human and environmental story of these far flung islands for the first time. Their history is fascinating and unique in the world yet they have remained virtually unknown not just to visitors to the country but even to the majority of Seychellois. They were discovered and charted by Arab, Portuguese, French and British sailors but their exact position and in some cases even their names remained unclear well into the 19th century, resulting in many a shipwreck. Eventually they were settled, becoming amongst the last islands on earth to receive human inhabitants. The people who toiled on the islands were isolated for months at a time, with no contact with their employers on Mahé or indeed the rest of humanity, like a satellite colony marooned on another planet. It was essential for survival that they were totally self reliant for all their needs from medical care and food to law and order. This is a story of a way of life that appeared from nowhere, rapidly evolved and
