Can cannabis help treat cancer? Scientists in Madrid plan to conduct a clinical trial in 30-40 patients to find out if cannabis can help fight cancer.

Conserving the African Wild Dog in Malawi

The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) is endangered (IUCN) with only 5000 animals remaining in the wild. To date wild dogs in Malawi have been overlooked and undervalued. Despite regular sightings in Kasungu National Park and its potential importance as a viable population, no comprehensive studies have been conducted on wild dogs in Malawi. The presence of the breeding population of wild dogs, the low numbers of competing predators, and the potential to enhance the link to the Zambian population make the Malawi dog population particularly important.
