    I would like to congratulate Dr. Pedro Vaz Pinto with perseverance and a first result in the fight to resurgence of the palanca negra in Angola.

    I should add that recently in the Luando Reserve a herd of between 40-50 giant black sable was seen. The 9 calves are testament to the fact that at least in Luando Reserve the population is breeding.

    I equally look forward to the first calves from the newly established Cangadala herd with a Luando Reserve bull. I would expect that as we speak the first calves may have been born there too ….
