Utterly ridiculous that any civilised society would lift a ban on trading of elephant (or any animal) trophies.
A reminder of their majesty. ・・・

@Regranned from @franslanting - @FransLanting “The Ivory Game” I’m on my way to the Southern Ocean and we'll share more about the amazing wildlife we'll encounter there, but today we want to draw your attention to an important new documentary that is available to view now on Netflix. “ The Ivory Game,” produced by @LeonardoDiCaprio, is a hard-hitting exposé that goes inside the illegal ivory trade to put Africa’s elephant poaching crisis back on the global agenda. Right now, the fate of Africa's elephants depends too much on the efforts of courageous individuals and small embattled groups scattered across the globe. They can’t do it without more support. We all have to raise our voices and get engaged. Organizations that support the elephant cause in a big way include the World Wildlife Fund, Wild Aid, and Save The Elephants. Please check their websites, check out the DiCaprio film and spread the word. I made this elephant image in Botswana, which is one of the few countries in the world where elephants have found a safe haven and are doing well, thanks to the leadership of the Botswana government. Stay tuned for more images and stories from us.

She is massive, armed with horns and protected by thick skin, and yet she is utterly vulnerable. 😭 Raise your hand if you want to save this amazing species. 📷©️ @franslanting

On Sep. 22 we celebrate World Rhino Day — She is massive, armed with horns and protected by thick skin, and yet she is utterly vulnerable. One ear is pointing my way, the other faces backwards. Rhinos make up for not seeing well with a sharp sense of hearing. Her calf is just curious, and has no clue what is facing them. But we know what is happening to them across Africa and Asia. Rhinos are in imminent danger of extinction in the wild. And that is why we need to celebrate World Rhino Day—to draw attention to them and to the people and organizations that are making a difference where it matters, in the hallways of governments and in the front lines of protection on the ground. I hope you will support them so that rhinos will get a fighting chance. Follow me @FransLanting for more stories about rhinos and how you can help.

On this #worldrhinoday I'm remembering Maxwell, the sweet, blind rhino living at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. I was fortunate enough to share a quiet moment with him just before foster parent visiting hours ended. I will never forget the gentleness of his presence or how inspired I was by the extraordinary dedication of the people working there. Truly one of the most incredible days of my life 💓

Photo by @FransLanting A newborn chimp baby lies cradled on her mother’s chest. To be this close to wild chimpanzees requires trust. It took us several weeks of following one group of chimps on foot in a remote part of Senegal before they felt comfortable enough with us to allow this proximity. The day I made this photo was a breakthrough: The little chimp and her mom both dozed off in front of us—less than 60 feet away. Chimps and bonobos are our nearest relatives on the great tree of life, but we’re not treating them like family—they are all endangered. Habitat loss and the bushmeat trade are impacting their lives wherever they occur in west and central Africa. We urge you to support the organizations that are trying to make a difference, including the World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International, the Jane Goodall Institute, and Neighbor Ape, founded by primatologist Jill Pruetz, an Emerging Explorer for National Geographic with whom we worked on assignment for @natgeo. And we encourage you to visit chimps in the wild, if you have the opportunity—at places like Mahale and Gombe in Tanzania or Kibale in Uganda, among others. Money earned through chimpanzee tourism provides funds for conservation projects and brings jobs and other benefits to local communities. Follow me @FransLanting for more stories of great apes in the wild.

Los elefantes (tanto los asiáticos como los africanos) tienen un neocórtex muy grande y complejo, una característica compartida con los humanos, los simios y algunas especies de delfines.
Los elefantes asiáticos tienen el mayor volumen de corteza cerebral disponible para el procesamiento cognitivo de todos los animales terrestres existentes. El volumen de corteza cerebral disponible para estos procesos excede el de cualquier especie de primates, y un estudio sugiere que los elefantes debería estar en la misma categoría de los homínidos en términos de habilidades cognitivas para el uso y fabricación de herramientas.
El cerebro del elefante cuenta con un patrón de giros más complejo y con muchas más convoluciones que los de los humanos, primates o carnívoros, pero menos complejo que los de los cetáceos, aunque los elefantes tienen igual número de neuronas corticales (células nerviosas) y sinapsis corticales que los humanos, que es un número mayor que el de los cetáceos. Se cree que los elefantes tienen el mismo nivel de capacidad para resolver problemas que los delfines,y muchos científicos tienden a clasificar a la inteligencia de los elefantes a la par con la de los cetáceos; de hecho, un artículo de 2011 publicado por ABC Science indica que "los elefantes son tan inteligentes como los chimpacés, y los delfines". #Repost @franslanting (@get_repost)
