Our big Big Grey was dehorned and his tracking collar fitted. He was slightly aghast waking up without his horns and in a new place but, like all strong proud men, he seemed to shake it off and take it in his stride. Not wanting to show any weakness in the new group he puffed and postured just like most males do to show dominance. He is a beast on the outside but we think he may be a big softy on the inside.

The grey ladies were giving him a few interested glances (discreetly of course so as not to upset their resident boys) who if we didn't know better, looked a little grumpy to have such an enormous bull in their midsts. He eventually went off to explore his new home. It will take a while for the others to accept him but we will keep you up to date with how it goes on his progress.

Even on the brightest of days they cast a shadow, the imprints of yesterday, the boots that came before and left their history below the sands. We shall not walk over them, but join the ranks, and walk among them with respect and morality. 🇺🇸

So salt poisoning is listed as the cause of the translocated rhino deaths.

The deaths of seven black rhinos at the Tsavo East National Park last week were as a result of salt poisoning, Tourism CS Najib Balala has said. Balala has in the meantime suspended the ongoing translocation of the rhinos following the tragic deaths.

Balala suspends rhino transfers after eight die of salt poisoning

The deaths of seven black rhinos at the Tsavo East National Park last week were as a result of salt poisoning, Tourism CS Najib Balala has said.

Balala has in the meantime suspended the ongoing translocation of the rhinos following the tragic deaths.

The rhinos were being translocated from Nairobi and Nakuru National Parks to the newly-created sanctuary in Tsavo East National Park being supported by WWF-Kenya. "Preliminary investigations by KWS veterinary teams attribute the deaths to salt poisoning as a result of taking water of high salinity on arrival in the new environment," he said.

These findings are consistent with cases of salt poisoning in other animal species, indicating a challenge in the translocated rhinos’ adaptation to the change from fresh water to saline water in t
Several tens have also been successfully immobilized for clinical intervention.

The eight dead rhinos were among 11 that had been moved to the sanctuary in an initiative to start a new population in line with the National Rhino Conservation and Management Strategy.

A total of 14 rhinos had been planned to be translocated. “Subsequently, we invited Prof. Peter Gathumbi, a Senior Veterinary Pathologist from University of Nairobi, to Tsavo to carry out independent investigations, where he collected samples on July 12, 2018, and would present his report in a week’s time,” Balalasaid.

He added that they have also sought input from Markus Hoffmeyer, a Wildlife Conservationist, Rhino Veterinarian and translocation expert from South Africa.

Meanwhile, the four remaining rhinos are being closely monitored by veterinary and park management.

PLEASE DO NOT REPORT THIS IMAGE - THE WORLD NEEDS TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING EVERY DAY TO THESE INNOCENT BIG GREYS. LIKE TO NOT LIKE
If ever there was a picture that sums up our reason - this is it.
A mother and her two babies were brutally and mercilessly murdered at @sanwildsa reserve. The mom and the older calf were poached but, even though the baby managed to get away, the little calf didn't survive the stress. This was confirmed after a desperate search and rescue attempt - they found the little one but he had already passed away.

There are so many words to express how we feel; despicable, repulsive, loathsome, detestable, execrable, offensive, revolting, heartbreaking! And WRONG just absolutely and utterly WRONG.

Sad sad news from Kenya... NAIROBI, Kenya, July 13 – The Kenya Wildlife Service is investigating the deaths of 7 out of 14 Rhinos translocated last week to Tsavo East National Park.

A KWS official who spoke to Capital FM News in confidence, confirmed the deaths, but did not offer more details, only saying that they all died in Tsavo under unclear circumstances. “This is a great misfortune and investigations are underway to ascertain the death of the rhinos,” said the KWS official.

Of the 14 Black Rhinos, eight were from Nairobi National Park while six were from Lake Nakuru National Park.

KWS is yet to issue an official statement on the matter after last week’s major publicity it gave to the exercise.

The translocation exercise was launched at the Ivory Burning site here in Nairobi by Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala.

The exercise was part of the broader plan in partnership with Wild Wide Fund for Nature-Kenya (WWF-K) to create more secure space with suitable habitat for the rhinos.

Of worth to note is the increase in rhino population. By the end of 2017, Kenya had a rhino population of 1,258 (745 Black rhinos, 510 southern white rhinos and 3 Northern white rhinos, the only surviving northern White rhino Male died in March 2018, thus only 2 females remain) having grown from less than 400 rhinos in 1980’s.

The rise in population is attributed to concerted efforts from KWS, private landholders, communities, county Governments, local and international partners. “However, these efforts must be sustained as the numbers remain relatively low and the species remains critically endangered,” KWS acting General Director General Julius Kimani said at the time of relocation. “This is due to increased demand for rhino horn, inadequate financial resource, and limited secure space for expanding the rhino range.” To achieve desired meta-population growth rates and strengthen national rhino population gene pool WWF Chief Executive Officer Mohamed Awer noted that rhino translocations and stocking density management are key biological management components.

How can we draw our visitors’ intention on Songbirds? That’s not so easy: birds are shy and sometimes hide when people come in their aviary.

@zoo_mulhouse_fans

We were very excited to highlight the unknown Songbirds for this campaign! These days also gave us the opportunity to bring up many different conservation subjects and fulfil an important mission of zoos!

Yellow-bellied slider, Trachemys scripta scripta basking on an algae mat in the Kingsland Basin. The other photos are of the red-eared slider, Trachemys scripta elegans. When young these species of pond slider are voracious carnivores but become increasingly herbivorous as they age. Terrapins were native to the UK until the last ice age 8,000 years ago and now, pet lovers who have changed their mind, have illegally reintroduced them. With climate change these alien species may breed and devastate native species such as coots and moorhens which are already threatened on our waterways by habitat loss, pollution and people disturbing their nests. Introduced alien species cause more problems in depleted ecosystems. If we can build up habitat along our waterways then these exotics will have a smaller impact. #canalandrivertrust #canal #waterway #exotic #alien #alienspecies #introduced #introducedspecies #algae #slider #terrapin #reptile #climatechange #carnivour #herbivour #pollution #wildlifecrime #habitatloss #habitat #regentscanal #kingslandbasin

Regrann from @earnaboldi - Repost @alex_and_malak
by @media.repost:
BREAKING NEWS: Officials in Japan have just confirmed that they will attempt to lift a ban on commercial whaling so they can kill whales for profit again. They will make the official request at an International Whaling Commission meeting in September.

Please sign and share ✅ this petition urging Japan officials to reverse course and leave the ban in place.

Japan hasn't specified details of its proposal, including what species it hopes to target, but any efforts to bring back commercial whaling should be squashed now. It's a brutal and bloody process that can lead to a slow and agonizing death for hunted whales. We must stand up for these gentle giants and fight any attempts to bring back the cruel and inhumane slaughter. #japan #whaling #greed #internationalwhalingcommission - #regrann

As we got the big grey boy to HQ he needed to be dehorned and a tracking collar fitted. This massive bull wasn't going down without a fight. It was almost as if his pride was saying "take it - but I will I will keep my pride. I know you are doing this to keep me safe and I thank you" words cannot describe the size of this big beautiful guy. He is one of the biggest rhino we have ever seen and we will do everything in our power to keep him from harm. He knew he was finally safe. It is our job to keep it that way.

Heb jij je zomervakantie al geboekt?😎 En ben je nu aan het uitzoeken welke leuke dingen je kunt doen in de omgeving? Denk daarbij dan ook aan de dieren en de natuur op je bestemming🌿 Zo bieden veel organisaties in het buitenland bijvoorbeeld wandelingen met leeuwen aan. Maar dit is niet zo onschuldig als het lijkt! 🦁 Veel leeuwenwelpjes worden vroeg bij hun moeder weggehaald om ze te laten wennen aan mensen. Eenmaal gewend aan mensen zullen deze leeuwen nooit meer terug kunnen keren naar het wild en eindigen ze vaak bij de zogeheten trofeejacht.😱 Ga daarom liever op safari om leeuwen in het wild te spotten 🤗 Kijk voor meer do’s en don’ts op wnf.n/vakantie of check de link in onze bio.

Regrann from @savingrhinos - Regrann from @vetpaw - South African Nature Conservation oversee the dehorning process. Here you see them checking for the microchip with a scanner so they can correlate the code from this microchip with the microchip that will be inserted into the horn so every horn can be linked, with each individual rhino, along with their DNA which is placed in the national rhino database - RHODIS

#Tbt During recent crocodile surveys #repost @treyaann "I’ve always heard reports about crocodile poaching but I’ve never experienced a case first hand". We came across a crocodile that had fallen victim to poaching. We managed to her guide back into the pond with one rear foot completely lacerated and the other badly damaged. In an area which is preserved for wildlife to thrive, we found other #crocodile traps, crocodile bones & a piece of a Hawksbill sea turtle shell.
Due to past & current population trends, our crocodile population, protected by law, is declining due to poaching, habitat loss and fragmentation 😔
Our native wildlife uniquely contributes towards the maintenance of our healthy ecosystems, cultural heritage and eco-tourism. So why are we destroying it ⁉️ ▪️

By now you will have realized that we have a new bull on our reserve. His story is quite unbelievable yet totally inspiring. His story shows that fate and timing are never wrong.
News came to us a few weeks ago that this was the last rhino standing on a reserve whose entire rhino population was decimated by poachers BUT by some miracle this big grey was still alive and unhurt.
We knew we had a matter of days to move him to our secure HQ as we had received reliable intelligence that he would be taken down, for his horns, by poachers within 48 hours.
An army of people from the veterinarians, game capture team, ground team, conservationists, volunteers and our team of veterans sprung into action to get him moved to safety as quickly as was humanly possible. We will be sharing his progress with you over the next few weeks. Here he is just before he was moved.

I visited the @avaaz_org carbon-dating display yesterday. Did you know that carbon dating has become an invaluable tool in our fight against illegal ivory trade? Thanks to David Chivall from @oxford_uni we can now tell that negligent and unscrupulous actors are even passing off post 1990 ivory as antique. Very helpful information as we plan our next steps to protect living elephants. •

En ny rovdjurs patrull " Limpopo Lion Protection Team" jobbar för fullt i Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area för att skydda lejon mot tjuvjakt. Under de 4 första dagarna täckte teamet 57 km och tog bort 33 snaror (som lagts ut av tjuvjägare för att fånga lejon). Läs mer om Great Limpopo

People often ask me how r #rhinohorn #smuggled and #trafficked. Unlike other #animal #horns , its up of the same #chemical component as the human nail, #keratin.

A mahout and his elephant have a special bond. Look how mahout Ood grooms Deelert, checking her skin and ears for any wound, tick, insect or larvae that may cause irritation to her skin. No bull hook, no chain. 100 percent pure love. 🐘

As soon as the farmers have harvested their crops the local hunts will be out cub hunting. Under the cover of darkness, very early in the morning hunts take young hounds out to train them to the scent of foxes by ripping apart the cubs. This is one of the truly hideous realities of fox hunting that the hunts try to hide from the public. If you hear of any meets or see any suspicious behaviour around small woodlands/ known fox dens early in the morning please contact us or the national Hunt Saboteurs Association as soon as possible. ✊🐾 #huntsabssavelives #huntsabs #huntsaboteurs #cubhunting #autumnhunting #wildlifecrime #wildlife #foxes #foxesofinstagram

I am sitting here, writing this post with a heavy heart.. Reading this made me so angry and upset! Another two Rhinos killed, slaughtered. Why?! For medicine and man's greed for money!!! I was lucky enough to meet this Rhino, Bella at Kragga Kamma a few weeks ago. She was this majestic, beautiful creature, no threat to us, so friendly! Now she is dead, murdered for a centimeter of her horn.. 💔
I wish these people who are responsible for these barbaric acts realize what they are doing.. I know that posting and writing about how horrible and sad I'm feeling won't do anything to help, so I found this wonderful group on instagram VETPAW (Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife) and made a donation (I know it's not alot but its something) to them because I feel like I need to do something to help our animals.
Thank you @vetpaw for the amazing work that you are doing. #hopeforrhinos #vetpaw #helpveteransprotectrhinos #rhinos #wildlifecrime #antipoaching #usa #southafrica #africa #ilovewildlife #nature #protect #safeourrhinos #support #portelizabeth #easterncape #letshelp

We've shared our immense excitement around the arrival of the first 5 of 10 highly trained tracking dogs from Texas, and now we get to show you a video of their warm welcome on South African soil! On Saturday 7 July, the canines arrived at the Southern African Wildlife College (SAWC) where they met a very happy CEO, Theresa Sowry, and an emotional and ecstatic team from the SAWC's K9 Unit. Thanks to @ivan.carter Wildlife Conservation Alliance for the video. This is a big moment for the College and for wildlife conservation.

The Eastern Cape of South Africa is running thick with the blood of innocent greys. When will this insanity end?

Two rhinos were found shot dead at Shamwari Game Reserve near Port Elizabeth on Saturday night.

Shamwari vet Dr Johan Joubert said on Sunday that the adult white rhino cow and her calf had been shot with a rifle and their horns had been chopped off.

Eastern Cape police confirmed the incident.
Acting provincial commissioner Major-General Andre Swart said: "Good leads were found at the scene and are being followed up and we trust they will lead us to the suspects soon. "We continue to urge game owners to be vigilant and check their game regularly." #VETPAW #veterans #usmc #marines #USA #rhino #nature #rhinos #poachers #wildlifecrime #counterpoaching #antipoaching #Southafrica #Africa #poaching #rockforrhino #rock4rhino

Wildlife crime is rife and on the rise as consumer demand for wildlife products grows globally. In a month-long @interpol_hq operation (#OperationThunderstorm), nearly 100 countries took part in a global crackdown on wildlife crime, helping to expose the international reach of this cruel trade.
.
#PhotographersAgainstWildlifeCrime is part of this worldwide effort to raise public awareness and end consumer demand for wildlife products. Through the power of photography, featuring images from world renowned photographers and photojournalists (including Jo), this book project documents the plight of wild animals caught in this global trade.
