I just returned from the amazing, Zakouma National Park in Chad, one of the many parks run by the groundbreaking conservation group African Parks in partnership with the Chadian government and the local communities. @africanparksnetwork

Black Rhinos are back - having “disappeared” from Chad due to poaching in 1972 but now 6 black rhinos have been successfully moved cross continent from South Africa to Zakouma. Here is Harry in his boma at night. All six rhinos are happy and healthy!
In this historic move to aid in the long-term survival of this endangered and heavily threatened species, six black rhinos are being reintroduced bringing this animal back to the country for the first time in over four decades. The translocation is an extraordinary cross-collaboration between the South African Department of Environmental Affairs, the Government of the Republic of Chad, as well as African Parks and South African National Park (SANParks). This is a hopeful story about the revival of a highly threatened species, as well as the trajectory of Zakouma - a park that was once ravaged by poaching and insecurity but has been transformed into a secure and flourishing park since 2010. This international conservation initiative is unprecedented and saw these black rhinos being flown over 3,000 miles to the well-protected Zakouma National Park, managed by African Parks since 2010 in partnership with the Government of Chad. overhauling law enforcement and working closely with the local communities to protect the park. Without the support of local communities this would not work. Local people are the anti-poaching patrols.

They have jobs in other parts of the park including tourism and management. This is truly a remarkable effort to repopulate and protect African Parks.

“At a broken television repair shop, the grandson watches his grandfather step by step. It seems like he loves this job,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Duc Bui Viet. “This is a photo I like very much because it reminds me of the time when life is still difficult, and technology has not developed as it is now.”

“What struck me right away was the use of light in this image. Also the framing within the TV is excellent! You really set a tone with this image, I love that the grandson is looking over the grandfather’s shoulder studying as he repairs a TV. Learning the trade by just watching as it happens right in front of him. Great work with this photograph.” — @natgeoyourshot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)


Photo by @amivitale. Giraffe keeper Lekupania and two orphaned giraffes whose lives he saved at Sarara Camp (@sararacamp) in northern Kenya. The giraffes come back to Sarara, which sits on the 850,000-acre Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy and is owned by the Samburu community, every morning to check in with Lekupania. Twigs, the oldest giraffe, was found upside down and stuck in an erosion gully and immediately rescued by the community. Both giraffes have been successfully introduced back into the wild. Current estimates are that giraffe populations across Africa have dropped 40 percent, plummeting from 140,000 in the late 1990s to around 85,000 today.

Saint-Petersburg Catherine Palace is definitely worth visiting if anyone comes to Russia. This amazing palace was bombed during the World War 2. Its famous Amber Room was dismantled and eventually disappeared during the war. Before it’s loss it was thought to be an “Eights Wonder of the World”. We were super lucky to have this place just for us for this photo as usually it is packed with people.

Во время Великой Отечественной войны дворец оказался на оккупированных территориях и его знаменитая Янтарная комната была вывезена немецкими войсками. Считалось, что Янтарная комната - это “восьмое чудо света” Нам невероятно повезло сфотографировать кадр без людей. ❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍
