No one else really understands the battle against poachers quite like the rangers on the ground. These brave men and women have given up a life of comfort to protect our wildlife. Between 2009 and 2017, a shocking 740 rangers have died in the line of duty. 740. And according to the International Ranger Federation, at least two rangers are killed every week. Experiencing scenarios similar to soldiers in combat, these are the true wildlife heroes of our planet. --
Pictured here, a Kenyan ranger standing guard over the Elephant Ivory and Rhino Horn Burn site at Nairobi National Park. The large stockpile caused security nightmares for the Kenyan government, who were worried they might be raided by terrorist groups who use illegal wildlife products to fund their activities. These horns were set alight under the watchful eye of the world’s media. Kenyans believe that no trade should be allowed on any wild animal parts and are against South Africa’s trading policies. Seized rhino horns in South Africa are kept for the national stockpile in the hopes that trade in rhino horn might one day be legal internationally, but in Kenya, seized stockpiles are burned.

STOP RHINO POACHING (☡GRAPHIC CONTENT)
_
Africa's rhinos are being butchered into extinction. To supply a growing demand for rhino horn powder in Vietnam and other Asian countries, poachers are killing these iconic animals in ruthless and unimaginably cruel ways. It's time to face up to violent truth behind the horn trade.

In conservation, it’s important to hear stories of when justice is served. When we’re overwhelmed with challenges and depressing news on a daily basis, to hear details of effective systems that are in place can restore our faith, and, more importantly, recharge our hope.
.
Respect to my peers and friends at Wildlife Protection Society of India and The Fund for the Tiger for continuing to shake things up on the ground in the heart of tiger poaching territory.
.
Case in point, the killer of legendary tigress Sita, Kailash Baheliya, escaped authorities by staging his death with a phony cremation ceremony (it was a langur monkey) and having his family produce a fake death certificate. He even destroyed his thumb/finger prints to hide his identity.
.
Because of WPSI’s intelligence gathering skills and trusted standing in remote communities, they received valuable tips that he was alive and well. Sure enough, they jumped on his trail, found him, and had him arrested.
.
Justice served for Sita. Respect my friends 🙏🏻.

RHINO SHOT, POACHERS HELD AT KAZIRANGA NATIONAL PARK
_
Poachers shot dead a female rhino in Kaziranga National Park in Assam on Sunday night but failed to take away the horn as forest guards alerted by sound of gun shots challenged the poachers by retaliatory firing.
_
Park sources informed that the rhino was killed near a forest camp in Bagori Range of the National Park. The carcass with the horn intact was recovered by forest staff. Three poachers were arrested by northern range officials from a hotel under Behali police station on Sunday night after a combing operation has been launched to trace them.
_
The incident was the first case of rhino killing by poachers this year. Last year five rhinos were poached in KNP while in 2016, 18 rhinos were killed and their horns taken away. (Source: Kaziranga Live)

The innocent beauty of a white rhino calf as he explores all around him with ears erect and eyes wide. Long may he live in peace free from senseless poaching!

Rapidly escalating wildlife and environmental crime is placing Africa’s iconic wildlife and protected areas at risk and is having far reaching consequences for the rangers tasked with their protection. Through this conservation photography project, I am documenting and highlighting the consequences of this environmental and humanitarian crisis. Conservation work that does not have environmental, social and economic sustainability built into it is fundamentally flawed.
This project has been undertaken in support of the @gamerangersassociationofafrica and the @ilcp_photographers Please consider supporting and donating to these worthy organizations that support conservation.
Founded in 1970, the Game Rangers’ Association of Africa (GRAA) focuses on providing networks and support for rangers across Africa by capacitating them to effectively perform their duties through equipment provision, training and promoting their interests. This will allow the restoration of Africa’s biodiversity and the continued existence of its wilderness for the benefit of present and future generations. www.gameranger.org/

The International League of Conservation Photographers mission is to further environmental and cultural conservation through ethical photography.  https://conservationphotographers.org/

A CAMPAIGN TACKLING ELEPHANT POACHING HAS LAUNCHED A COUNTRYWIDE PETITION THAT IT HOPES WILL HELP COMBAT AN ALARMING RATE OF POACHING IN MYANMAR (link in bio 👆)
_
With at least one elephant hunted every week, six international wildlife agencies have created the six-month “Voices for MoMos” @voicesformomos campaign highlighting the devastating effects of the illegal trade. Nullifying the sale of elephant products is “imperative,” according to WWF-Myanmar conservation director Nick Cox, as experts say elephants face extinction if poaching continues at its current rate.
_
Elephant skin, tail hairs, teeth and ivory are sold at Golden Rock (Kyaiktiyo Pagoda), ivory is sold in Yangon and Mandalay. There are also large markets along the border regions of China, Myanmar, Laos and Thailand—an area known as the ‘Golden Triangle.’ Elephant skin is sold dried for traditional ‘medicine’ or polished into beads and sold as lucky charm bracelets. The tail hairs are put into silver rings and worn for luck.
_
Nick Cox, Conservation Director, WWF-Myanmar said, “It is imperative that Myanmar ends the illegal and open trade in products from elephants and other wildlife. “China’s closing of its domestic ivory market is a great step forward but if we don’t end the sales nationally the trade will simply come across the border. “We must make it clear to all tourists that Myanmar is not an illegal wildlife trade destination and end these sales once and for all.”
_
Beginning today (January 16), Myanmar artist Arker Kyaw’s We Love Elephants public art exhibition will be at Junction City, after three weeks of being on display at the Junction Square grounds. The elephants will be open to public viewing at the ground floor foyer of the mall until the end of January and will run alongside screening of Voice for MoMos public service announcements and elephant facts on a number of digital screens inside and outside the mall premises.
_
The petition, which aims to attract 100,000 signatures, can be signed at Junction City’s Voice for MoMos kiosks or online via www.voicesformomos.org/petition
