When the one on the left said he’s moving to NYC to study big cats for grad school I thought he just meant fat tabbies and volunteered Q-Tip. Turns out that’s not what he meant. Living with you for two years has been wonderful and I’m glad the world brought us together. Good luck at Columbia Michael!!

So, following many attendances to open day and my photography day I've been wanting to adopt a big cat from @thebigcatsanctuaryuk I've so many beautiful photos of the cats I've had a hard time choosing but despite being tempted by @mayathejaguar I've chosen to support Hogar, who is a critically endangered amur leopard and what a handsome boy he is! There are estimated 100 or less of these guys in the wild, which is absolutely devastating. Please support big cat conservation!! #thebigcatsanctuary #bigcatphotograhy #amurleopard #amurleopardsofinstagram #leopard #leopardsofinstagram #bigcatconservation #catconservation #conservationphotography #conservationproject #dslrphotography #canon80d #amateurphotography #wildlifeofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifephotograper #bigcat #catsofinstagram #spottedcat #endangeredspecies #criticallyendangered #savetheplanet #savethecats @gilesclark

Intense Lion 🦁 / Males and females take on very different roles in the pride. Male lions spend their time guarding their territory and their cubs. Female lions are the primary hunters of the group. They are smaller and more agile than males. But since their prey is still generally faster than them, they use teamwork to bring an animal down. #lion #lioness #kingofthejungle #lionsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #bigcatsofinstagram #malelions #lioness #shade #cat #cats #bigcats #bigcatconservation #predator #hunter #carnivore #wildlifeofafrica #wildlifeshots #wildlifephoto #krugernationalpark #kruger #krugersafari #wildlifepark #savethelions #conservation #iucnredlist

#SpotTheDifference 1: Leopard close-up by @singita_
.
"Leopards are one of the most adaptable and resilient of the world’s large carnivores, and as a result, it is often assumed that the conservation status of the species is secure. However, like many other species, illegal hunting, habitat loss and the bushmeat trade are having a negative impact on leopard numbers. Research suggests that South Africa’s leopard population is declining at an alarming rate of 8% per annum. -

This is a true picture of dominance. Kashane Male was one of the first leopards I ever encountered in the Sabi Sand Reserve. Viewing a male leopard in this way, is truly a memory of a lifetime. #creatingmories .

Ringed Kingfisher: A large and noisy kingfisher that is commonly found along larger rivers of Central and South America. With the different kingfisher species in the area, size of the bird actually correlates with the size of stream/pool they prefer to live at! The smaller the species the more time they spend in denser vegetation at smaller water bodies and the larger the species the more likely it is encountered around larger rivers, ponds and lakes. This minimizes competition and allows multiple very similar species of kingfishers to live in the same forest together.

Photo by @beverlyjoubert. Staring straight into the amber eyes of a lioness will always awaken a part of me that knows instinctively that I am not the true predator here. And yet - people's amazing ability with tools and intelligence has made our species stronger by far and we are outcompeting every other predator on the planet. Lions are iconic - strong and proud and symbols of power throughout the world. But there are now more statues of lions in the world than there are real lions. Only around 20 000 remain, scattered in ever-smaller patches of wilderness. It's worth noting this decline this #WorldLionDay but also noting that we have the ability to halt and reverse it when we put our minds to it. Nine years ago, together with @dereckjoubert, and National Geographic, we set up the Big Cats Initiative as a long-term effort to halt the decline of big cats in the wild. The initiative supports efforts to save big cats through assessment, on-the-ground conservation, education, and global public-awareness campaigns. To date, this has supported more than 110 innovative projects in 28 countries that are helping big cats and communities thrive - all working to keep these wild eyes alight across Africa, ready to pierce our souls with the truth about who we really are.

It’s World Lion Day. I am proud to be an ambassador for the Kevin Richardson Foundation. Kevin - @lionwhisperersa - does a fantastic job raising awareness of the plight of this alpha predator. Few people on the planet know more about lions than Kevin.
.
No animal is under greater pressure from encroachment in Africa and Kevin believes there are less than 15,000 lions left in Africa. That’s a calamitous fall of over 90% in the last 100 years.
.
This image - The Lion King - was taken with remotes in Kevin’s sanctuary. It is a reminder of what our grandchildren could miss out on. We should all do our bit in anyway we can.

This is the road being repaired on the Northern Jaguar Reserve after a heavy rain. The arroyos swell and flood the road, and it is often destroyed and cannot be used until we bring the tractor for repairs. // Este es el camino siendo reparado en la Reserva Jaguar del Norte después de una gran lluvia. Los arroyos crecen e inundan el camino, el cual es comúnmente destruido y no puede ser usado hasta que nosotros traemos el tractor para repararlo. // Photo and words by Laqui Duarte.
Laqui is currently the only person on our staff trained to operate our tractor, indispensable for infrastructure and restoration projects. // Laqui es actualmente la única persona en nuestro equipo de trabajo que está capacitada para operar nuestro tractor, el cual es indispensable para los proyectos de restauración e infraestructura.

#augustbreak2018 - Cat.

These are my kind of cats!

All photos that I took when I visited @thebigcatsanctuaryuk a couple of years ago. These animals are truly magnificent, so well cared for, involved with all kinds of conservation and breeding programmes, and very obliging when posing for passing amateur photographers!

I find something incredibly powerful, primal even, about being in the presence of these big cats - their strength, their absolute certainty about their place in the world, and I'm not too big to admit that it made me quite emotional to share space (not too close!) and make eye contact with them, I felt as if they could see into my soul and the heart of who I really am, and I hoped that I could draw some of their strength into myself.

Honestly, I'm fairly indifferent to domestic felines - and allergic to them - but I sincerely hope that wild big cats of all kinds never become extinct, the world would be a truly poorer place without them.

Caz and I attended the big cat night at paradise wildlife park, raising money for big cat conservation in-situ and ex-situ. The keepers and conservation ambassadors gave amazing talks and we got a real insight into behind the scenes of big cat keeping. We also got the opportunity to stand inside Rocky, their recently deceased elderly tiger’s enclosure and spread his ashes. The whole evening was just incredible, and of course I got to meet my idol! #bigcatconservation

So pleased to get the opportunity to meet @gilesclark last night and hear his talk on big cats and conservation at the Paradise Wildlife Park Big Cat Night. Also heard a very interesting and insightful talk from Richard Vigne from @olpejeta about what the are achieving in the Laikipia Region in Kenya #paradisewildlifepark #bigcatnight #bigcatconservation #rhinoconservation #olpejetaconservancy

No matter where on Earth you call home, forests make your life possible. They are so many things – our respite, our natural air filters, our water factories, our medicine cabinets. We literally can’t live without them. And at @ConservationOrg we work to ensure the world’s most important forests are protected for future generations.

This beauty. Met her at Manyoni while she was adjusting to her new environment in a boma, waiting to be released into the reserve. Conservation a lot of the times is about managing a species as a metapopulation, like the cheetah at Manyoni. This female is bringing new genes into the reserve to ensure heterogeneity in the gene pool. #funfact #conservation #cheetah #southafrica #africa #photography #conservationphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #love #bigcats #bigcatconservation

Laqui is in demand everywhere and with every project on the Northern Jaguar Reserve and surrounding Viviendo con Felinos ranches. He works as a jaguar guardian and field assistant, and we rely on his wide-ranging knowledge and abilities more and more each year. In any given month, Laqui will place and maintain motion-triggered cameras, assist visiting researchers, guide interns, accompany filmmakers, take the truck to the mechanic, help remove trespassing cows, and participate in gabion construction, road maintenance, fence repair, and invasive species removal. He has the skills required to share tasks with our biologists, combined with an innate knowledge of this area and a cool, confident dedication we find inspiring.

💫 Magical experiences 💫 We were so lucky to witness a rare sighting of a mama cheetah & her babies 🐆 out for a walk in the Kenyan savanna. A cheetah sighting was high on our safari bucket list not only because of their amazing beauty but also because of their elusiveness. It was really beautiful to watch her at full stride.
~~~
Being on safari made us fall in love with nature and these fabulous animals we share the planet with even more, and the experiences will forever be etched in our hearts & minds. It was beyond our wildest dreams to see rhinos, elephants, lions, giraffes & other beautiful creatures in the wild and to feel imperfectly human among the most majestic of all creatures. We dedicated our safari series to the wildlife of Kenya in hopes of raising as much awareness as we can on the wildlife & conservation efforts here. Have you been on a safari? We hope that we've inspired you to go on one someday! ~~~
We next head to our home country (can you guess where?) and we can't wait to share our insight & stories into its beauty with you amazing people - our TIOE fam! Thank you for following us on our adventures in exploring beautiful places together, we have so much more to show you, so stick around & travel in our eyes! ❤️❤️

So, I said no more BobbleKitties...well, how can I not make anymore! Plenty more cats to go through.
I love the Groucho Marx eyebrows on the cubs and Caracals ear tassels. The most widely accepted theory for why these cats have ear tassels is that they twitch them as a way to communicate with fellow caracals. What’s this guy saying? .

One of the last photos of Xanda, the son of Cecil the Lion. Only a few weeks after this picture, the six year old father of several cubs was killed in much the same way as his famous father: shot by a trophy hunter outside Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. The protected game reserve runs in parallel to one of Zimbabwe’s largest hunting concessions, only separated by a train track, with no barriers to stop wild animals crossing from one side to the other... It’s a sad story, but one that needs to be told on #worldlionday #hwange #zimbabwe #lions #endangered #conservation #worthmorealive #cecilthelion #stoptrophyhunting #bigcatconservation #savelions #wildlife #africanwildlife #bigcatsforever #wildlifelovers #wildgeography #tierfotografie #wildlifeconservation #capturethewild #lion #natureinfocus #discoverwildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlife_seekers #wildlifeaddicts #africanamazing #savebigcats #africageographic #wildlife_photography #protectwildlife
