    Spook the lion is seen after he was recaptured after escaping from the Karoo National Park near Beaufor West, South Africa. Last year, a South African lion earned the nickname "Spook" — "Ghost" in the Afrikaans language — after it escaped from a national park and eluded searchers for more than three weeks. Now Spook has broken out again. A helicopter on Tuesday, March 29th, searched for the male lion, which was fitted with a satellite tracking collar after last year's escape from Karoo National Park and should be easier to trace this time, park spokeswoman Fayroush Ludick said. The lion, which escaped overnight Sunday, has become a "problem animal" and will be killed because he knows how to get out of the park and could endanger people, Ludick said.

    Indonesian mahouts (elephant masters) train elephants prior to a daily patrol at a Conservation Respons Unite (CRU) to control elephant-human conflicts in Serbajadi, East Aceh on April 7th. Elephants have joined the front line in the fight against poaching and illegal logging in the dense jungles of Sumatra. Guided by their Indonesian mahouts, they trek alongside rivers, over rough terrain and deep into the rainforest in an area that is home to numerous endangered species, from orangutans to tigers, but which has suffered devastating deforestation in recent years.
