In early April, HESC introduced Shawu to the @campjabulani herd on Kapama Game Reserve. He is doing very well, and the herd have been very welcoming and loving towards the little orphaned elephant that we have all grown to love. —
A little time ago we posted one of their videos, showing Shawu taking the first lead of the herd, around the dam close to Camp Jabulani. Well this has now become a bit of a tradition with him, as he is anxious to get back to the stables after a long day out in the bush, to get his evening milk bottle. —
The team at Camp Jabulani have recently decided to do the milk bottle feeding by the dam, as the winter months creep in, and it gets darker earlier, so the light is better and it is warmer. Tokwe, the matriarch seems happy with the new slight tweak in their evening routine, and so do the rest of the herd.


You will see Shawu's reflection, as he dashes towards Tigere, our elephant manager, waiting with his bottle.


It is really beautiful to see how protective and concerned all the elephants are, of Shawu's well being.

I finally got my copy of this #kickstarter project which is near and dear to my heart. Written by Keith Wilson it is a collection of photographs and stories that examine the illegal wildlife trade in effort to bring awareness to the crimes and end the suffering and exploitation of animals around the globe. I highly recommend it. I bought two with the intention of giving one away as a contest prize. I’m planning that now so stay tuned to learn how to win your own copy.

In 1958, the future of conservation in The Bahamas and the wider Caribbean would change forever. The establishment of The Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park made it the first of it's kind in the world and to this day, this park stands as a prime example of what a Marine Reserve should look like. Some of the Bahamas' most beautiful sites lie within this park's 176 square mile boundary, and rivaling to the #gardensofthequeen this marine reserve may just be the healthiest and most flourishing marine ecosystem definitely in The Bahamas, and maybe the surronding Caribbean. However this park is nowhere near its full potential as, there are many amazing things that are about to happen here, and it has it's challenges, Resources being the biggest one, and Poachers being second. Until you visit the ECLSP, the first Bahamian National Park and the foundation of what conservation was built off in The Bahamas, you haven't seen The Bahamas.

One of many breathtaking sunsets in the extraordinary cloud forest of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. .

Colombia is the world's most biodiverse country for birds, with over 1,900 species of birds, accounting for 18% of all known birds in the world! This country also has the highest number of bird endemisms in the world, with 73 species found nowhere else. However, the true gem of Colombia is the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta; an isolated, coastal mountain range with over 440 bird species and the highest number of bird endemics per unit area in all of Colombia. .

The isolation of the mountains, as well as the drastic habitat differences between the foothills and higher altitudes allowed for this impressive evolutionary feat. One of my favourite bird orders are Parrots (Psittaciformes) and I ventured here hoping to find the critically endangered Santa Marta Parakeet (Pyrrhura viridocata). Unfortunately I didn't see any, but this beautiful place had so much to offer, I left fulfilled nonetheless. Do you have a favourite bird species/family? Let me know in the comments below!

It’s been a great year for Wood Stork nesting in the Everglades. This year’s nest count estimate is still being finalized but it’s likely to be about 3x higher than the annual average count of the last ten years. More importantly, many of the nests fledged 2-3 healthy nestlings, adding lots more Storks to the population. The recent heavy rains are a bit of a concern because it means water levels have risen considerably in the Everglades, and this limits the ability of these young birds to forage effectively. Fortunately most birds fledged long before the rains arrived and so have probably already moved on to greener pastures beyond the Everglades.

Nathan: “We’re going live!” Me: “Live? What the...???” 😂😂😂 Endless prairie sunset along the Yellowstone River last week with the real @nathansatranphoto .

Small Great Plains wetlands like this near Forsyth, Montana—often ephemeral—provide critical habitat for migrating and nesting waterfowl, shorebirds, and songbirds. Here refueling dunlins and Wilson’s phalaropes fed furiously within a couple feet of my mud-patch belly crawl as blue-winged teal jetted past, sandhill cranes called, and the prairie sunset went on and on. .

Proportionately larger beaks, long tails, and relatively bare, light-coloured, facial patch (medial) distinguish macaws from other parrots. Sometimes the facial patch is smaller in some species, and limited to a yellow patch around the eyes and a second patch near the base of the beak. A macaw's facial feather pattern is as unique as a fingerprint. The greatest problems threatening the macaw population are the rapid rate of deforestation and illegal trapping for the bird trade.

@matherpeter was on the final day of a three-week trip to Alaska’s North Slope when, from his snowmobile, he spotted what he thought was a rock. When he realized the mass was actually an arctic fox, he spent two long hours approaching it, trying his best not to spook the canine. The result of his patience? This category-winning photo. More from this year's competition via the link in our bio. // #conservationphotography #wildlifephotography #alaska #arcticfox

Nesting Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) build their nests in small soil depressions surrounded by rocks and grass. Killdeer eggs are covered in spots and resemble rocks themselves allowing for better camouflage against predators. It’s always important to give plenty of space when photographing nesting birds and to not lurk too long.

Photo by @celinaxchien for @everydayextinction Captured from the wild, isolated in battery cages and force-fed nothing but coffee cherries, Asian Palm Civets (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) are subjected to horrific conditions across South East Asia for the production of Kopi Luwak, the world’s most expensive coffee. The beans ferment as they pass through the civet's digestive system, and the prized results are selected from their faeces. This poor civet was up for sale in a rotting cage on the streets of Medan, Indonesia.
.
The trade in wild animals is not only a moral and ethical issue concerning the suffering of its living victims, but also a conservation crisis. Many, if not all, of the animals in this market originated from the neighbouring Leuser Ecosystem, one of the largest intact rainforests of South East Asia and is the last place on Earth where critically endangered elephants, tigers, rhinos and orangutans still coexist in the wild. Populations of a diversity of species are crashing due to the combined destructive forces of habitat destruction and animal extraction for the wildlife trade. The moral corruption that allows this industry to thrive off the exploitation of endangered and tormented animals must stop if their wild counterparts are to survive into the next decade.
.
Never buy Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee and spread the word; tell the world that the wildlife trade in all its forms is cruel and threatens biodiversity. We must confront the demand, educate the public and pressure governments to introduce and enforce their wildlife laws.

Esse ai da foto é o Jaçanã (Jacana jacana), essa espécie de ave apresenta dedos extremamente finos e longos, possibilitando que ela ande com facilidade sobre a vegetação aquática pois seu peso é dividido sobre os mesmos, assim a ave anda e corre sob folhas e capins flutuantes como se estivesse andando em solo seco. Graças a essa característica em alguns lugares da África e da Austrália, as espécies de jaçanã são conhecidas como “Jesus bird” (pássaro Jesus), porque parecem andar em cima da água!

It is not right to stand by and watch injustice taking place. There are times when action is necessary. However, we must choose carefully as to what action we do take. To halt the pandemic of wildlife crime we need an integrated approach that is undertaken at multiple levels to ensure that both the cause and the effect of the poaching is dealt with. Taking a military approach alone will not halt the slaughter!

The San Salvador National Parks are crucial breeding grounds for many long lived and migratory seabirds that use the many offshore cays for breeding. This amazing photo shows a small colony of Magnificent Frigatebirds along with a single red footed booby that has utilized this cay to raise their chicks. Frigatebirds are a sight to see around these cays with their 7 foot wingspans, and red inflate throats, which only the males possess.

Feeding time at the elephant orphanage
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This little elephant is an orphan. Along with many other orphaned infant elephants, he has been rescued by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, where I was lucky enough to encounter him. His mother and family were most likely killed by poachers for their ivory, leaving him alone, traumatised and grieving. Baby elephants are fully dependent on their mother's milk for the first two years of life and continue weaning until the age of four, so DSWT have developed a special milk formula to feed the orphans every three hours and their keepers stay with them twenty-four hours a day, even sleeping with the elephants during the night. DSWT takes in orphan elephants from all over Kenya and raises them until they can be released into the herds of Tsavo National Park and reintegrated back into the wild.

March of the gentle giants
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Elephants are the world’s largest and most majestic land mammals. Their name comes from the Greek word ‘elephas’ which means ‘ivory’, but due to illegal ivory poaching there are only two main species of elephant left on the planet: The African Elephant and the Asian Elephant. The Asian Elephant is now an endangered species and the African Elephant is considered vulnerable. Without urgent action to save them, elephants could disappear from the wild within a single generation. We must act to save them now, before it is too late. To do this we have to start with education and knowledge. Without that, the children of the future will only remember elephants as the dinosaurs of the 21st century. #savetheelephants
