In 1983 a group by the name of Culture Club released a song called Karma chameleon in an album called Colour by numbers. It was a hit and spent three weeks at number one on the US Billboard hot 100. “Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams, red gold and green”.

The Department of Environmental Affairs has set to zero all hunting permits for leopards in South Africa – which is, effectively, a total ban on hunting the cats. This follows an alert by its Scientific Authority that the number of leopards in the country was unknown, and that trophy hunting posed a high risk to the survival of the species. The DEA ban, sent to all provincial authorities, cancels all leopard export permits for 2016.
