Kenyan knight in shining armor and his young charge... This is a crisis and we must act now, as in yesterday. Instead of a material object consider giving the precious gift of preservation and conservation the next time you are shopping for a 🎁. Protect this international treasure that is our wildlife. Adopt an 🐘 through @dswt and help pass on greatness for generations to come #dswt #respect #rangers #wildlifeconservation #elephant #babyelephant #keepthemwild #adopt #savetheelephants #hope #preservation #knotonmyplanet #elephantcrisisfund #nairobi #kenya

Part funded by the ECF and set up by @conservation_lower_zambezi with Zambia’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW), the Lower Zambezi Dog Unit is producing great results. The latest success of the unit comes after the unit raided a house that led to the confiscation of five home made muzzle-loading guns and the apprehension of two suspects following intel from Luangwa and Chongwe Investigations and Intelligence Officers while out on operation in the Rufunsa District. The unit aims to disrupt the movement of illegal wildlife products and to act as a deterrent to wildlife traffickers. #antitrafficking #wildlifecrime #elephantcrisisfund #ConservationLowerZambezi #Zambia #DogUnit #elephants.

For the Maasai nowadays a lot of Maasai women and men don’t dress or mark themselves with the long hair (mainly Moraans), circles on their cheeks or stretch their earlobes. It reminded me of Jimmy Nelson’s project, Before they pass away.
It’s slowly fading away because the country is getting more and more educated.
This of course is a very positive thing but it also made me a bit sad to realize that there will come a time that these traditions will no longer exist.
Will it benefit the areas these people currently live in? I don’t really know. Had a lot of discussions and all of them with different outcomes. There is always two sides to a coin.

Thanks to @savetheelephants’ tracking app, powered by Vulcan, and the support of other conservation partners, Elephant Crisis Fund partner the Wildlife Action Group Malawi (WAG) in Malawi is now able to track a troublesome bull elephant named Chakuse in Thuma forest reserve, and hopefully keep him out of harm’s way. Chakuse has a reputation for breaking fences and raiding farmer’s crops and so with help from @AfricanParks and the local vet, WAG were able to dart the enormous elephant and put a collar on him. By tracking Chakuse’s movements, WAG can now try to stop him leaving the reserve and potentially getting shot or speared by angry locals. #elephants #elephant #elephantcrisisfund #thumaforestreserve #Malawi #wildlifeactiongroup

Earlier this month, ten collars funded by the ECF were deployed on elephants in the North Luangwa Ecosystem and in Nsumbu National Park, Zambia, in a joint operation between the Zambian Department of National Parks and Wildlife and ECF partner, @frankfurt.zoological.society (FZS). Data from these collars will allow law enforcement managers proactively deploy and guide anti-poaching units. Greater understanding of elephant movements, visualised on the Save the Elephants’ tracking app (powered by Vulcan), will also help inform wider law enforcement planning and assist in mitigating human elephant conflict. #elephants #FrankfurtZoologicalSociety #DNPW #ElephantCrisisFund #Zambia #NorthLuangwa #NsumbuNationalPark.

Yesterday, me and 9 other Maasai men prepared ourselves for the slaughtering of a cow. As usual with the Maasai there were only men and no women allowed. Especially at this period when the men leave their homes for 3 to 4 weeks to camp in the bush with friends and family to regain strength for the year to come.
They regain their strength by eating meat (cows and goats) and by drinking their special herb tea. Everything is done according to their traditions.
The thing that kept me busy is how I noticed how fast I’m getting used to the whole slaughtering and butchering of animals here in Kenya. Especially when I was holding the cows heart in my hand and handing it over to the person next to me I was surprised by how little it affected me. At that point I got annoyed with myself wondering if I was turning into someone that doesn’t appreciate the life of an animal that’s just been killed.
The only thing that made me feel better in some sort of way is the way the Maasai use everything of the animal and the respect they have for these animals.

The most positive news for elephants in the last six months has been the final closure of ivory markets in China and the decision to close the Hong Kong markets over a five-year period. But that doesn’t mean the Ivory Crisis is over. Although the tide is slowly turning, much more needs to be done. A combination of visionary support, collaboration between governments and NGOs and an integrated approach is helping but we still have a long way to go in our struggle to save elephants.  As we celebrate World Elephant Day, read how our valiant partners are battling the ivory crisis across Africa and Asia in our new ECF report out today by clicking on the link in the bio.

During my stay here in Kenya I met a lot of farmers. Everyone with their own story and almost all of them experience the same problems and challenges.
First of all providing for their family’s is the most important thing and secondly protecting their crops.
These are some of the farmers I met along the way!

A huge thank you to my amazing parents, Tom and June, who chose @elephantcrisisfund as their charity of choice for their 50th Wedding Anniversary party a month ago. ECF nimbly supports emergency efforts across countries in Africa, focused on deploying support to end poaching, trafficking and the demand for ivory. Everyone can make a difference; I urge you to take a look at how you can help. No amount is too small, no gesture is insignificant. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for supporting conservation efforts in Africa!!! #conservation #elephants #elephantcrisisfund #stoptheivorytrade #stoppoaching #stoptrophyhunting #empowersafrica #beforeitstoolate #gooddeeds

One of the most remarkable features of an elephant in my opinion is how silent they move for an animal this big. When an elephant hears something approaching it will stop moving until the “threat” is gone or in a worst case scenario it or you will bump right into one.
When you’re walking through the bush this makes it very hard to spot an elephant. For the communities in these kind of areas encounters like these are common and may end up in one having to pay with his/her life.

Does my mom look like a Trophy to you? We cannot allow the Trump administration to lift the ban on elephant trophy imports.
The Trump Administration has once again given in to the efforts of the NRA and the Safari Club International and has sneakily issued a court filing that it will allow the importing of elephant and lion trophies from South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia whom are both on the Endangered Species List.
We are asking for your urgent support to help us reach out to the U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to stop this from happening.
Protect me from trophy hunters by demanding Interior Secretary @repryanzinke end this immediately!

In Odzala-Kokoua National Park in the Republic of Congo, managed by conservation group @africanparksnetwork in partnership with the Congolese Government, one group of dedicated eco-guards are being hailed as the secret weapon to protecting an elusive population of forest elephants that live there and to one day restoring Odzala to its former glory. Learn more about their efforts to turn the park’s fortunes around and find out what the Elephant Crisis Fund is doing to help try and make this a reality by heading over to the Elephant Crisis Fund website.#odzala #elephantcrisisfund #congo

One of the weapons the poachers use to kill an animal. Bow and arrow isn’t a weapon they use a lot nowadays because the poaching, most of the times, takes place at night. A lot has happened these last few days regarding poachers and I will discover a lot more about what they do and why they do it.

One of the people joining last week when we were preparing a feast for Joshua’s (my good friend and companion these last few weeks) family was this elderly Maasai woman. This women came over to get some food and wasn’t aware that there were so many people coming over. The story of this elderly woman is one that’s not really part of my project but I wanted to share her story. It’s quite a sad story but not uncommon.
Her name is Susan Mang’ang’a and is unable to have kids. Because of this she got neglected by her family.
Everyday she still walks great distances but unfortunately she isn’t able to care for herself like she used to. The community helps her a lot by providing her with as much as possible. Even though she almost 90 years old she caught my eye because of how fragile and strong she looks at the same time.

Inherently to my business it is often referred to and considered as an 'impersonal and everything for the money'. I never considered this to be the case, but I wanted to do something differently.
So this has brought me to an idea! Therefore from now on, with every successful placement that i'm involved in, I will 'adopte' an endangered animal. Thanks to my new placement at Ebay, I'm proud to say that I just 'adopted' an elephant named Tahri @dswt 🐘❤

THANK YOU @tiffanyandco for supporting us, it is humbling. The 3 million dollars raised though the sales of the Save the wild collection in a record 7 months to benefit @elephantcrisisfund have been a game changer on the ground and the elephants are smiling. #ivorybelongstoelephants #elephants #knotonmyplanet #elephantcrisisfund @naomi @trishgoff @doutzen
