Photo by @FransLanting | This black rhino may be helped by a glossy starling to get rid of pesky insects, but she is on her own against poachers who stalk her equipped with military hardware. On Sept. 22 we celebrate World Rhino Day and I’d like to draw attention to their plight and salute the organizations which are determined to stop the slaughter. That includes the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya where this image was made, which has set up its own paramilitary response team. Please, check out the links and consider supporting them in any way you can because only when we band together can we turn the tide.

@FransLanting Black rhinos make up for poor eyesight with a keen sense of smell, so if you want to approach one it’s best to do that from a downwind direction. Every poacher knows that, but against their powerful guns often equipped with silencers a rhino’s sense of smell is no defense at all. That is why we need to draw attention to the rhino’s plight on Sept 22—World Rhino Day and support the organizations that are making a real difference in this war against wildlife. Check out the links below and follow us @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more encounters with rhinos and learn what you can do. @LeonardodiCapriofdn @WildAid @World_Wildlife @Lewa_Wildlife #WildAid #worldrhinoday #Rhino #SaveTheRhino #AspinallFoundationn #endangered #protection #naturelovers

Regram from #RG @franslanting Photo by @FransLanting This female black rhino and her calf are massive, armed with horns and protected by thick skin, and yet they are utterly vulnerable. All ears are pointing my way. Rhinos make up for not seeing well with a sharp sense of hearing. The calf is just curious, and has no clue what is going on. But we know what is happening to them across Africa and Asia. Black rhinos are in danger of extinction in the wild. And that is why I want to draw attention to them and to the organizations that are making a difference where it matters, in the hallways of governments and in the front lines of protection on the ground so that rhinos will have a fighting chance. Support the World Wildlife Fund in its efforts to establish an International Court for Wildlife Crimes; support Wild Aid for its campaigns to influence consumers in China and Vietnam and support the Lewa Conservancy for its efforts to protect a sanctuary for rhinos in Kenya. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more stories about rhinos and how you can help. @natgeo @natgeotravel @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @wildaid @world_wildlife @SaveTheRhino @lewa_wildlife #wildaid #Rhino #SaveTheRhino #AspinallFoundationn #celebrate #protection #naturelovers @rememberingrhinos #rememberingrhinos

@Regran_ed from @franslanting - Photo by @FransLanting A nearly full grown black rhino calf appears to be hiding behind its mom, who is a formidable adversary for any natural enemy, but she is defenseless against poachers who come equipped with military hardware like machine guns and night goggles. I photographed these rhinos at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, which has ramped up a paramilitary force of its own in response, but many places which harbor rhinos do not have the resources to do so. That is why we need to draw attention to their plight on Sept. 22, which is World Rhino Day. Please, consider supporting the organizations in the links below. They are as determined to act with solutions to the poaching crisis as this rhino mother is to defend her offspring.
