Wednesday night I attended a celebration for the gorgeous new @dporthaultparis book at the home of designer @emmajanepilkington. The owner of D. Porthault, Joan Carl, was there signing copies, and proceeds from book sales went to @africanparksnetwork which protects endangered species on one of the largest conservation areas in Africa. We need to protect these special animals from extinction, and what fun to combine this important cause with a party to celebrate some of my favorite linens #glimpsephilanthropyfriday .

We are protecting more than 15,000 elephants across Africa to ensure they are able to breed and thrive, and roam safely in these protected landscapes. We are working daily to prevent elephants being killed by militarized poachers for the sale of their ivory, and preventing the destruction of their homes from habitat loss. African Parks has secured seven million hectares of national parks and protected areas to ensure elephants and other endangered species live long into the future. In Malawi alone, our rangers are protecting 90% of the country's elephant population, and just in August, we rehomed 520 elephants to restore Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve in Malawi.

I scrolled through my feed to go and copy this quote, because I think the world could do with the reminder. When I looked at the date I saw I had posted it (with this photo) on the 16 Nov 2016 - almost a year ago to the day. How so many people have still not realised that we have only one planet and only one chance to protect it, baffles me. But for those who do, and who work tirelessly everyday to protect it, support it, advocate for it and do their bit, no matter how small - heres to you. Don’t ever stop. .
.
"Men are easily inspired by human ideas, but they forget them just as quickly. Only Nature is eternal unless we senselessly destroy it. . . .

In fifty years time nobody will be interested in the results of conferences which fill today's headlines.. .
.
But fifty years from now when a lion walks into the red dawn and roars resoundingly, it will mean something to people and quicken their hearts... they will stand in quiet awe as for the first time in their lives, they watch 20,000 zebra wander across the empty plain.. .
.
Is it then really so stupid to work for the zebras, lions and men who will walk the earth in a hundred or two hundred years time? "

We're so proud to have played a role in bringing Cheetahs back to Malawi, and now the first cubs have been born in the wild in over 20 years!

Another THREE new cheetah cubs have been documented in Liwonde National Park in Malawi!! This is the first time cheetah cubs have been born in Malawi in 20 years, and the first time for Liwonde in 100 years! The cubs were born to one of the four wild cheetahs translocated to the park in May this year. Decades of habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict and poaching severely reduced the nation’s predator populations, entirely eradicating cheetahs, a species threatened with extinction in Africa. The reintroduction of the cheetah is historic for the country and ushers in a new era for the park, where the return of large predators is part of a larger restoration plan for the parks’ natural ecosystem and the conservation of this highly vulnerable species. Together with the DNPW and the @endangeredwildlifetrust , we've been able to bring this iconic cat home.

Repost @africanparksnetwork : "A poacher has been sentenced to five years in prison for killing an elephant in Nkhkotakota Wildlife Reserve, as Malawi continues to show their commitment in the fight against the wildlife trade. After receiving a tip-off about the incident, the DNPW launched a joint operation with the police and evidence led to this man being found guilty for killing a protected species. This follows the judgement passed in October where the Malawi government sentenced three people to a total of 36 years of prison time for poaching a black rhinoceros – the most severe penalty to be handed down for a serious wildlife crime since Malawi strengthened penalties by amending its National Parks and Wildlife Act in December last year. Malawi has made a strong example of the consequences for wildlife crime and for the protection of critical species.

An elephant is dwarfed by the tall grass in this image by our partners at African Parks, Benin. There’s been so much rain at the Pendjari Complex that even animals as big as elephants are proving difficult to spot.  While the rain might be a welcome sign, it’s proving a struggle for African Parks rangers during their elephant patrols. We are pleased however to report that the grass has started to dry and bush fire management will soon begin allowing the patrols to continue more effectively. #africanparks #Benin #Pendjari #Wildifeconservation #Elephants.

Another from the Chewa - gule wamkulu, The Great Dance. They believe that when an individual dies they move from the land of the living to the land of the ancestors. Dancers visit the village as mzimu, spirits that convey messages to the village and teach lessons to the young. Each dance is unique to the character and the main aim is to remind the village to live their lives according to mwambo, the moral code. While the adults of the village smiled and laughed it was fascinating to watch the children’s reactions, especially the visible fear as I was used as a human shield when this evil spirit visited. Truly a special experience and I hope I understood it enough to convey its meaning (if anyone knows better please do correct me!).
