💖🐘😙😭 how it is possible to be so cute. .!! Credit :@lovejoy_kisali - Elephants are the largest land-living mammals and among the most intelligent animals on earth. Adult elephants have no natural predators; the main threat to elephants is from humans. Humans kill elephants for their ivory tusks and humans destroy the elephants’ habitats. Because the threat to elephants comes from us, only we can stop the madness. And if we ignore or forget the elephants, how can we be sure that we simply won’t ignore or forget the other crises confronting our world? TUNZA! CONSERVE! ✔️ Tag your friends ✌️ .

Photo by @amivitale. Dave Matthews (@davematthewsband) plays his song “Mother of Africa” with his friend, Robert Lemaian, at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in northern Kenya. I met Dave in the middle of a blizzard at Standing Rock in North Dakota last year and by some small miracle, he agreed to come to the elephant sanctuary and allow me make a short film. It launched yesterday. (Link in profile - watch it now!). Dave has tirelessly worked as an advocate for conservation efforts and contributed large sums to peacefully proactive environmentalist groups. Go see him if you can. Not only is his music beautiful but he is an authentically awesome human being.
Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, in northern Kenya is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. You can support this incredible place and the people who protect wildlife. Make a $10 contribution in support of Reteti for a chance to win a trip to Kenya, see Dave Matthews in concert and take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave via @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems). Reteti operates in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.

This time of year can be so hard with transitioning seasons and the end of the school year. I’m taking a 10,000 foot view of life this week. Stepping back to accept the cycles of life helps me get perspective. How do you find balance during times of transition?

Wishing you balance and perspective this week! 😘

Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy is seen from the Mathews Range Mountains. #Namunyak's 850,000 acres contain higher populations of large mammals than any other landscape (protected or unprotected) in Kenya, including the second-largest elephant population in the country, with more than 7,000 individuals. Conservation efforts here are focusing on both preventing habitat loss and stopping the spread of poaching, lead by the local communities.

The Ivory Trade and Terrorism- is there a link?

There’s been long drawn-out contention about whether the ivory trade funds terror.

Some compelling evidence has suggested that the hypothesis has been proven true.

Through innovative techniques, fake tusks hidden with GPS tracking- which has been around for some years- were released into the black market and eventually found north of the base of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda, led by Joseph Kony, the man with a $5m bounty on his head for war crimes against humanity. The tusks then travelled to Sudan, which was then exchanged for money and weapons.

Further, through interviews with people along the trade route, it was revealed that the LRA were killing both people and elephants.

In 2014, 132 elephants in Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo were killed by the LRA to fund terrorist operations. There are only 1,000 left there. 40 years ago, there were 22,000. This is also the same park where the northern white rhino became extinct.

Whether the extent of the militarised poaching continues at the same rate today remains unclear- but what we do know, is that if the price of ivory falls- which it is, due to the various interventions taking place including ivory trade bans, notably in China- then the terrorists will focus less on ivory as a form of valuable currency. Of course, they’ll resort to something other kind of financing as other terrorist groups do. Though so long as black market ivory continues to flow within the continent, elephants will continue to systematically die, and terrorism in Africa will continue to be funded with the numerous senseless deaths of our planet’s national treasures.

Repost from @natgeotravel - Photo by @amivitale. Kamara, a Kenyan rhino keeper is nuzzled by black rhino Kilifi who he hand-raised along with two other baby rhinos at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife) in Kenya. Kamara spends 12 hours every day watching over the vulnerable baby rhinos. If you went back 50 years, this is where one of the densest populations of black rhinos lived, but today most people living here have never seen a rhino in their life despite it being the most perfect habitat for them. In two generations, this animal was poached almost to extinction. These communities and people like Kamara hold the key to saving Africa's great animals.

Singing for elephants - you might win a trip to Africa: My colleague and friend @amivitale, in collaboration with the @davematthewsband, recently produced this video about the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), a remarkable community run conservation initiative I’ve visited , documented and admire immensely. Ami and Dave teamed up to help this conservation model and orphaned elephants survive. While the UK is introducing one of the world's toughest ivory bans, and China, Hong Kong and Taiwan are strengthening their own bans, the US is taking steps backwards, to ease the import of so called “elephant trophies.” The Dave Matthews Band decided to take a stand for the elephants and wrote the song “Mother of Africa” at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary. If you make a $10 contribution to support the sanctuary, you are entered to win a chance at a safari to Kenya and see Dave in concert with @prizeo (more info in bio). Not only will you be helping care for baby elephants, you’ll also be entered to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems). Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa.

Poaching rates hit frightening heights after the legalisation of once-off ivory sales in various countries- telling perhaps, of the correlation that exists between allowing tusks to flow in a free market and it’s inevitable impact on stimulating demand in an active black market. One-third of the world’s African elephant population plummeted in a short span of 7 years. There are less than 415,000 left as we speak.

Prices of ivory have, however, fallen over the years and have dropped to record lows of $730/kg from $2100/kg due to a market reaction to China’s ivory trade ban in 2017, tighter regulations and most likely declining demand due to increased awareness of the abhorrent trade.

So, tides are turning for the better. The question has always been- as with most cases of species vulnerable to extinction- how much faster do things need to move in order to ensure these creatures live on?

We created this mess, so we have to fix it.

Regrann from @amivitale - Today is Endangered Species Day, a day to redouble our efforts to protect and fight for the world's most vulnerable animals. We must begin to see ourselves as part of the landscape of this planet. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals.

In addition to caring for orphaned elephants, Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) also cares for orphaned giraffe, endangered Grevy’s Zebra and the black rhino Loijipu. Black rhinos are critically endangered because of rising demand for their horns. Loijipu arrived at the sanctuary when he was only two days old - the size of a dinner plate. Through Reteti's loving, dedicated care, Loijipu has thrived. Today, he’s a sweet and spirited rhino who has grown strong and will soon be re-introduced into the wild where Reteti hopes he can reunite with his mother.

While the UK is introducing one of the world's toughest ivory bans, and China, Hong Kong and Taiwan are strengthening their own bans, the US is taking steps backwards, to ease the import of so called “elephant trophies.” Dave Matthews Band (@davematthewsband) is taking a stand for the elephants and for community based conservation. Watch this new video of Dave and his incredible song “Mother of Africa” at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) - and then make a $10 contribution to support the sanctuary, and enter to win a chance at a luxury safari to Kenya and see Dave in concert with @prizeo (link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for baby elephants, you’ll also be entered to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems). Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild.

iJunia, one of our favourite ladies. She has a very kind and beautiful face. 🐘
She is tall and towers over everyone else, with a long swayed back which indicates that she is an elderly female. She is estimated to be over 50. This means she was an adult during the civil war in Gorongosa and has probably witnessed a lot of tragedy and sadly, likely remembers it all. When we first met her she was understandably pretty aggressive, but over the years she and her family have really calmed down. The I family is one of the most frequently seen families in @gorongosapark.🐘

Detail from the painting “King of Trophies” from #yoursideyourchoice project with the photographer Simone Sbaraglia —�—�—�—�—�—�— The Lion is the most known, loved and feared animal of Planet Earth. It lives in numerous packs that can reach 30 specimens. Inside the pack lions have specific roles: male defends the cubs and territory from intruders while female are expert hunters. Once the mother gives birth, she keeps the cubs in isolation, away from the rest of the pride, for the first four to eight weeks of their lives. #nickbrandt #savelions #savethelions #wildlife #safari #conservation #lionrecoveryfund #dontletthemdisappear @rootsandshoots #janegoodall #janegoodallinstitute #stoppoaching #leonardodicaprio @leonardodicaprio_foundation #bigcats #bigcatconservation #moby #janestrafficstop @conservationorg #wwf #greenpeace #lav

The Caring Ones

It’s been a month since Dame Daphne Sheldrick, the pioneering woman who gave her heart and soul to saving, protecting and rearing orphaned African elephants, passed.

Her legacy lives on, as we all knew it would, through the people she’s transferred her skills onto and the organisation that ensures her work carries on. At the David Sheldrick Orphanage, there’s a lot of caring going on- and it also gives others an opportunity to share their love of elephants and to help their kind survive the poaching crisis created by the ivory trade.

Dave Matthews (@davematthewsband) is greeted by Nadasoit and a whole herd of elephants at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e). He is smitten.

Reteti Elephant Sanctuary, in northern Kenya is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. The sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. You can support this incredible place and the people who protect wildlife. Make a $10 contribution in support of Reteti for a chance to win a trip to Kenya, see Dave Matthews in concert and take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave with @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems).

My dear friend and colleague @AmiVitale, Dave Matthews (@davematthewsband) and @conservationorg are doing amazing work with elephants through community based conservation in Kenya.

While the UK is introducing one of the world’s toughest ivory bans, and China, Hong Kong and Taiwan are strengthening their own bans, the US is taking steps backwards, to ease the import of so called “elephant trophies.” Please take a few moments to watch this new video of Dave and his incredible song “Mother of Africa” at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) - and then make a $10 contribution to support the sanctuary, and enter to win a chance at a luxury safari to Kenya and see Dave in concert with Prizeo. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems.
