Black rhinos at sunset in Etosha National Park, Namibia by Michael Sheridan (shared from another source). Images such as these will soon be just that - an image of a distant memory. Current methods of conserving this species appear failing rapidly despite incredible efforts of small conservation projects ie my grandmother in the Midlands and much larger . Something has to give whether it be the current approach , or the mindset of those seeking these animal products.

Kuti is continuously working on the very important Zebra ID project. We helped collect data, which will give a better understanding of the herds in the Kuti reserve. As volunteers, Emily Ingram and I, Rachael Steffen, spent hours in the bush, observing zebras, collecting data and take ID photos. After gathering as much information as we could, we would enter it into a collective database. It is a long but rewarding activity!

This chair is made from a sycamore tree that fell in the winter storm of 2010 in the remote Scottish Highland village of Tongue. I am proud to say it did not fall in vain.
It was created as a personal statement against the cruel and unnecessary trade of Ivory.
Employ an artist. Not a poacher.

A subject close to my heart. If you can, please share to raise awareness on this issue!
Wildlife often struggles to thrive and in many cases is merely trying to survive. By far and away the biggest threat to wildlife is us, loss of habitat being the biggest issue as man and animal fight for the same land now. For certain species poaching is also a real concern and so long as there is demand for horns, tusks and pelts this will be a problem

We have a responsibility and I for one do not want to be part of the generation that obliterated our planet of the natural world. We all need to do our bit, however small that is. If it is only making others aware then we are doing something. #conservation #saveourwildlife #saveourplanet #endangered #endangeredspecies #lions #lion #cheetah #elephants #elephant #wildlifelovers #wildlifeaddicts #wildnature #wildlife #wwf #wildnature #rememberingwildlife #africa #tusktrust #wildark #africanwildlifefoundation #lionconservation #elephantconservation #amboseli #tusk #conservationafrica #kws #actnow #takeaction #raiseawareness

At this lookout point at a nature reserve in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, I was hoping to see some of Africa's iconic animals in this vast expanse of verdant land before we set off on a hike. To find out more about my adventures in Africa, check out 'A Lion's Roar' on Amazon.

One of my happiest memories in South Africa was learning to trot on this beautiful horse, Farwell 💚. He was very thirsty after a long ride out in the bush at the Hanchi Horseback Conservation Project. Read more about my travels in 'A Lion's Roar'. 🐆

We're receiving some wonderful footage for this year's #tvebiomovies competition!
These fabulous images from @Brooke_C_Bee in #Tanzania are of the first #Dance4Conservation event organised by @Peace_For_Conservation_TZ.

The competition invited villages bordering the #Serengeti #NationalPark to perform traditional dances and songs with an #AntiPoaching message.

The aim was to empower the communities to protect their surrounding #wildlife.

Thank goodness yesterday was a multiple elephant sighting day. 14+ actually, which helped to pass the 8+ hours cycling in the blazing heat & sun.
Cycling past elephants is 100% a pinch me moment, even though I’ve been imagining this and training for it for 7 months. They are such massive and gorgeous animals, their motion is so majestic & mesmerizing. The other night we watched them appear out of the dark (gray ghosts) at the elephant sands watering hole & it was one of the most moving experiences of my life.
Their body language is intelligent & clear. Their trunks are up in the air smelling us as we approach, babies less evident, tucked away until it’s deemed safe.
Our support team think they don’t know what bicycles are as they’re not common here. Once, if the matriarch or lone bull decides we’re not a threat, they relax and spread out, settling back into eating again.
Only one lone bull elephant today wasn’t pleased to see us, remaining still with trunk & ears up. We bikes by in convey. Rapidly.

6 weeks at Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage have come to an end!
.

The 130 chimpanzees that currently call this place home I consider very lucky. Whether being stolen from the forests for the illegal pet trade or being orphaned due to their mothers' grisly deaths for the illegal bushmeat trade, these chimps, and many more over the 35 years since the first rescue, have been given a second chance at life here in Zambia. .

It's been a pleasure to work with the super friendly staff (who have saved impala, duikers, vervet monkeys, bush babies, eagle owls and even a hippo!) and to learn from them, in many more ways than I could have imagined! .

Read everything at www.chimfunshi.de .

Hippos! 😍 can you spot the one in the water?
Spent the day at Werribee Zoo in Victoria, which started as just a personal collection of animals before forming into an open range zoo dedicated to mostly African animals.
Check out my instastory to see some fun animal facts and also a great way to help with conservation! 🙌🙌
Everyone should check out @beadworkskenya 👍❤️
They sell beautiful beaded jewellery made from women in Kenya and the proceeds go directly back to these women in the community. This means they are earning an income (which alone is great!) which allows them not to have to sell livestock. Not having to rely on livestock for their income means they start to repair their relationship with wildlife like lions who are commonly killed because of threatening the locals livelihood. Also more livestock = more food for the wild predators = increase in their numbers.
Yay for conservation!!

This was an amazing experience getting to see baby giant African land snails, at only a few days old their shells are still a but transparent. Look carefully as you can see what I can only assume is their heart beating.

“Today we are witnessing the extinction of a species that survived millions of years but could not survive mankind.” It’s heartbreaking to learn of the passing of the last male Northern White Rhino. We are witnessing the extinction of a magnificent mammal. 🦏 I post this in honor of the time we spent with the Southern White Rhino, applauding the successful conservation efforts over the last few decades to bring the southern subspecies back from the brink. Unfortunately, humans failed the northern subspecies. RIP Sudan. We MUST do better. ❤️🦏❤️ #lastwhiterhino #ripsudan #extinction #whiterhino #savetherhinos #stoppoaching #rhinorescueproject #wemustdobetter

REGAL PRIDE:  Could you imagine an Africa, or even a world without lions? It is something we have to ask ourselves and take the necessary conservation measures to protect this incredible big cat.  Lions are without a doubt iconic, however they are also a threatened species with their numbers in the wild dropping below 27,000.  This magnificent male lion in Botswana'a Okavango delta allowed us to really appreciate his power and regal nature.

Finally decided on names for these guys. Since Jackson's chameleons originate from Africa I decided to honor a couple African national parks, by naming the female Nyika and the male Kruger. Kruger is a well known SA park and one of my favorite places to visit. Nyika is a park that actually runs through two countries I called home for several years, Mozambique and Zambia. #jacksonchameleon #jacksoniixantholophus #kruger #nyika #nationalparks #conservationafrica

Edwin is the Head Elephant Keeper at the world-renowned David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @dswt in Nairobi, #Kenya. We spent a day with Edwin, and his group of Elephant Keepers, who are working hard to rehabilitate a herd of orphaned elephants.

"One of my biggest goals here at the Elephant Orphanage is to educate people on the importance of conservation. All animals have the right to life and protection. Everyday nearly 200 people from nations around the world visit us here where we teach them that it is everyone’s responsibility to protect and care for wildlife. Growing up, I wanted to join the priesthood. But you know what? God’s plan for my life is just as good. I’m saving those [elephants] who would have died without my help. I save those that wouldn’t have had a chance and help lead them to freedom."

While interning with the Wild Volunteers, I was able to join the Wild Tomorrow Fund at Phinda Private Game Reserve to take part in a rhino dehorning. This was an incredible and heart wrenching experience. Rhino dehorning is an important part of conversation and is one of the few affective methods of preventing rhino poaching. It's hard to think that stripping a rhino of it's horn is the best way to protect it, but in reality doing this decreases the chance of it other wise being killed by poachers. "We have lost 95% of rhinos in the last 100 years" ~ Wild Tomorrow Fund. A big thanks to everyone at Phinda Private Game Reserve and Wild Tomorrow Fund, for giving me the opportunity to come along. #pindaandbeyond #andbeyond #rhino #rhinodehorning #antipoaching #conservation #conservationafrica #photooftheday #ukuwela #phindaprivategamepark #photoaday #photoadaychallange #wildlifephotography #wildlife #photography #visualambssadors #visualambassadors #wildvolunteers #wildtomorrowfund #loganstroudphotography #rhinoconservation #safari #saveourplanet

VIGILANCE - a hartebeest watches its own back in a game farm in Limpopo, South Africa. A huge amount of land in the country is now privately owned and devoted to wildlife, prompting many conservationists to tout the strategy as an example to other countries. However, there are concerns over whether farming and breeding of charismatic wildlife - often to produce rarer, more unusual and hence valuable animals for trophy hunts - will upset or redefine the natural balance of the ecosystem.

Photo by @amivitale. A newborn elephant named Kinya nuzzles her protector looking for comfort after falling into a well and losing her herd and mother in a remote part of northern Kenya. Through the afternoon and into the evening, the men offered saline to the orphaned elephant as the agitated baby cried plaintively for her family. The elephant was eventually taken to the Reteti epelphant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary.

A very powerful photograph taken by @lifethroughalensphotography Members of the @annektaylorfund show the snares found in a single day in the Mara Triangle, Kenya. Once used for trapping wild bush meet by rural communities they are today used primarily for commercial purposes, often trapping preditors such as lions and leopards.

Before I proceeded to shooting...I literally prayed that God should let the animals stay...Well as requested, this guy was even changing poses for me...He felt sad from what I perceived but thanks to him, My dream of getting them close came through... Like we were head to head and he didn’t run or anything. #JahListens #Ncf @ncfnigeria @natgeo #animazing_nature #allblackeverything #KeepOuranimalsalive #ConservationAfrica #animalphoyography #Creativeminds #animalphotoclub #animalsmood #legit

Another cheetah photo because the last didn't do the species justice. This young male is already collared and ready for transport to Malawi.
