'Tufts of a mane are shown on an orphaned adolescent grevy's #zebra at Sarara Camp (@sararacamp). Sarara camp is home to orphan giraffe, zebra, Kudu, Gerunuk, warthogs, and waterbuck who all will one day be released back into the wild to live as they were always meant to. Also known as the imperial zebra, the Grevy's is the most threatened of the three species of zebra. Compared with other zebras, it is tall, has large ears, and its stripes are narrower.'

We've made it through Monday so here's a little love, kindness & perspective to get through the rest of the week! Mwahhhh
Kamara and his love for Kilifi who was orphaned after his mother was poached. Kilifi is an 18-month-old rhino & his keeper, Kamara is currently hand-raising along with two other baby #rhinos at #Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife ) in #Kenya. Kamara spends 12 hours every day watching over the vulnerable baby rhinos. He loves these animals like his own children & is part of the reason Kenya’s black rhinos, whose population had plummeted to near extinction, are doing so well here.
Much needed attention has been focused on the plight of wildlife & the conflict between heavily armed poachers & increasingly militarized wildlife rangers. But very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the front lines of the poaching wars & the incredible work they do to protect these animals. They hold the key to saving Africa’s great animals. Much gratitude & respect to @amivitale@natgeo for sharing this gorgeous story & awareness!
