#bekindtoelephants How someone could shoot such an intelligent, empathetic animal as an elephant is beyond me. No animal should be hunted for ‘sport’ in the name of conservation. Hunting and poaching of wild elephants is outpacing the species’ reproductive rate, making it hard to justify the killing of further megafauna to ‘save the species.’

Trump has put a hold on his administration’s plan to lift the ban on trophy imports from elephant hunts — and it was YOU who made him do it!

To each and every person who voiced their outrage at the ban reversal: Thank you. You made this hold happen, and now we must keep the pressure on to that ensure logic prevails. Elephants face a plethora of threats to their survival, and we are doing so much to mitigate these threats, but hunting will not save them. There’s still a long way to go to save the species, but celebrate today — your voice made a big difference! #BeKindToElephants

Baby Siku is lucky to be surrounded by a great group of girls. Her mum (Sunyei) provides the milk and maternal love, while her nannies (wild-living DSWT orphans, just like Sunyei) serve as mentors and babysitters in equal measure. As Siku grows up, mum and nannies will make sure she’s safe, spoiled, and well-schooled about life in the wild. Meanwhile, her second family (that’s us!) will be working in the background to make sure that this group of elephant gals is healthy and out of harm’s way.

Regranned from *the_walking_snurfy - Please help 🐘♥️ Regranned from *markjdrury - Yesterday it was reported that the Trump administration will reverse an Obama era law and will now allow Elephant hunters to enter the US with their “trophies.” from Zimbabwe and Zambia. To say this a step backward for decades worth of conservation is an understatement. Why anyone would want to kill these beautiful giants is beyond me. What can you do to help the elephants?

Enkesha’s trunk may always bear scars from the snare that nearly severed it, but this girl is nearly all healed — and she’s also getting bolder by the day, as Jotto learned the hard way!
Jotto is very sweet and would never bully the younger elephants, like Enkesha, because he knows that they’re just babies. She recently decided to take advantage of that kindness, and lurked around Jotto as he laboriously dug up a root. The moment he claimed his tasty prize, she made to snatch it away, which Jotto graciously allowed. Enkesha was very pleased to have her stolen snack — and she’s lucky that she chose such a magnanimous target!

I saw a video posted earlier @dp4k.m of a mother who had been shot in the leg by poachers, her baby remained at her side until she was rescued and the mother sadly had to be euthanised due to a shattered leg. I can imagine, not only the agony she was in from the poacher's bullet, but the agony she would have felt knowing her baby was vulnerable as she couldn't protect her. You see, elephants are sentient and when a mother goes down I have no doubt her stress levels are raised as her heartbeat lowers as she worries about her baby. Does she think... what's going to happen? I think she does. She is a mother. The poachers can see this as they watch the elephant during the day and mark them for killing. Illegal or legal ivory, there is no difference, it's a crime against a mother's ivory. It's a crime against wildlife and it's a damn crime against us, the people, a majority, of elephant lovers who want this to stop! Listen to OUR voice! Watch the little one stay so close to the mother......they need each other.

It’s “on hold” because so many people are outraged by a reversal of the ban on elephant trophy’s. A trophy for ones ego. Nothing justifies this. 💔🐘💔🐘

We are deeply disappointed to hear that the United States is lifting its ban on elephant trophies. Despite being listed as a vulnerable species, hunters that legally kill an elephant in Zimbabwe and Zambia between 2016–2018 will now be able to obtain a permit to import their ‘trophy’ into the US.
We strongly believe that no animal should be hunted for ‘sport’ in the name of conservation. Reversing the trophy import ban imposed in 2014, which was aimed at protecting the species, is a backward step for ethical conservation efforts.

If you feel equally disappointed, there are a few meaningful actions that you can take to help. Learn more at:

Dublin Zoo celebrates the birth of a Southern White Rhino calf! What great news!
Let us not forget that along with elephants, there are several animals facing a drastic decrease in their population numbers. Not just due to poaching, but habitat loss and human and animal conflict.
While the Northern White Rhino is nearly gone the Southern White Rhino will carry on their name and will hopefully not be left with the same fate.

Last week @realdonaldtrump lifted the ban on the import of elephant hunting trophies, which also would lift the ban on other endangered animal trophy imports like lions. On Friday, the outcry was so extreme that he has since POSTPONED his decision to allow elephant trophies. Everything we do and our action can have a difference. This proves that. But we need to continue to show our support for these endangered species or he will just wait it out until the media stops covering it. Don't stop doing whatever you can. #donate and #repost to prevent him from allowing the upper class to plunder and take the resources that belongs to Earth, and to exploit the people of Africa. Repost this and tag #BeKindToElephants and a donation will be made for everyone who does. @dswt ❤️ @theellenshow ❤️

I ❤️elephants. Did you know their brain is four times the size of ours and convoluted, indicating that elephants can reason and think? It has also been proven that the part of an elephant brain responsible for memory is far more sophisticated than that of a human. #bekindtoelephants #elephants #protectelephants #wild #free #animalsofinstagram #repost #arcticrefuge #elephants #elephant #conservation #wildlife #animals #nocaption #joinourherd #protect #naturelove #safari #weekend #instagramhub #instagram #livingroyal #love #worthmorealive #saynotoivory #jointheherd

oil painting 2017 this is a detail of a painting I have been working on for two years. It's almost done -it is called "Elephant Prayer" I wanted to share this painting now in light of the recent actions taken to lift a ban on importing trophy elephants. We can and must do better than this for these wonderful beings. Albert Schweitzer said, "until he extends the circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace." #artoftheday #art #instaartist #painting #portrait #figurativeart #figurative #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #americanart #contemporarypainting #oiloncanvas #innerpeace #lawofattraction #figurativepainting #Kunst #pintura #peinture #retrato #arte #nature #representationalpainting #americanartist #savetheelephants #elephant #elephantlove #jointheherd #worthmorealive #conservation

A Kirk's dik-dik (Madoqua kirkii) in Ruaha National Park.


The Kirk dik-dik is a small antelope native to Eastern Africa and one of four species of dik-dik antelope. Its name derived from its call. If a dik-dik is discovered by a predator it runs in a swift zigzag like pattern, emitting a trumpet-like "zik-zik" call.

The power of each of us is very small. However, if we unite, we can make a change with great power. Race, religion, borders are not problems. Let's raise our voice for the majestic giants and all the other wildlife.

Unfortunately they do not have much time left.

Kore and Tawi are two peas in a pod! We’re currently raising both orphaned elands at our Voi Reintegration Unit, but when they’re old enough, they’ll return to the wild.
