Photo by @AmiVitale // Who inspires you? My dear friend and fellow conservationist, Ami Vitale is one of my biggest sources of inspiration. Not only is her imagery emotional and beautiful, she has chosen to document some of the most tragic and challenging conservation issues of our time, including the assault on elephants, rhinos and giraffes in Africa. Amazingly, she does it in a way that is uplifting and motivational. What I love most about her work, is that it is infused with a sense of hope. Please help me get @AmiVitale to 1

"Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino left on this planet is comforted by Joseph Wachira, 26, moments before he passed away March 19, 2018 in northern Kenya. Sudan was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralove in the Czech Republic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta and has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. If there is any meaning in his death, its that Sudan can be our final wake up call. In a world of 7 billion, we need to start recognizing that we are not separate from nature. When we see ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves.
Today, fewer 30,000 rhinos and 3,900 tigers remain in the wild. We are witnessing extinction on our watch and must help them by speaking out and supporting conservation efforts worldwide, especially among the indigenous communities who are on the front lines every day against poaching. Follow @olpejeta @safari_park_dvur_kralove @conservationorg @nature_africa and others to learn more and get involved." @kenyawildlifeservice @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeoimagecollection #LastManStanding #SudanForever #WorthMoreAlive #OlPejetaRhinos #NorthernWhiteRhinos #protectrhinos #DontLetThemDisappear #rhinos #saverhinos #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #africa #everydayafrica #photojournalism #iloveamivitale
