On the move. So lucky to see the wild dog working as a pack. Another of the endangered species of animals. In this instance we didn’t witness a kill. #wilddog #wilddogs #wildlife#canoncollective #africa #southafrica #kruger#krugernationalpark #c4photosafaris #outdoors#iloveafrica#endangeredspecies #huntingasapack #packanimals#natgeo #natgeo100contest #natgeo100 #natgeoafrica

I was ECSTATIC the first time I saw a giraffe stance itself to take a drink. Time after time I saw them approach the water and then walk away. (They’re extremely vulnerable when they drink and understandably hesitant.) After that first sighting I was lucky enough to get a double dose, so this photo is one of my favorites ❤️
“Wildlife is something which man cannot construct. Once it is gone, it is gone forever. Man can rebuild a pyramid, but he cannot rebuild ecology, or a giraffe.” -Joy Adamson

Did you know.. of the 9 recognized subspecies of giraffe, 2 are classified as critically endangered, 1 endangered, with the others being threatened or near-threatened?
Loss of habitat as well as illegal hunting for the bushmeat trade is leading the giraffe towards a “silent extinction” (Dr. Julian Fennessy, co-chair of the IUCN Species Survival Commission Giraffe and Okapi Specialist Group (SSC GOSG) and director of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF))

Calling the pride....
This young lion was lost, separated from his pride. He was calling them and uneasy being on his own. His pride was about a 10 minutes drive away resting in the shade after feasting on a kill.
Shot in the Masai Mara National Reserve in October 2017.

Sometimes I take pics and they’re good by accident! Case in point: momma zebra jumps in the shot last second, red-billed oxpecker opens his beak when I was shooting, and where did that big croc come from in my baby geese pic?! #oops #accidentalgoodness #zebra #oxpecker #egyptiangeese #wildlifeonearth #wildgeography #natgeowild #natgeoyourshot #southafrica #wildlifephotography #yourshotphotographer #natgeotravel #wildanimals #animallover #fromwhereisit #naturephotography #wildlife #krugerthroughmyeyes #africa #capturethewild #natgeoafrica #photooftheday #animalkingdom #krugernationalpark

A fisherman shows me his catch.
.
Tanganyika is nicknamed 'Darwin's Dreampond' for its hundreds of endemic species. On my first morning camping by the lake I met some fishermen bringing in the night's catch. I counted more than ten species in one man's boat, and almost a different 10 in another! Lakes Malawi and Tanganyika contain 10% of fish biodiversity. 10%. That includes all the fish in coral reefs and the Amazon, in rivers and lakes the world over.
.
I was not too late, as is so often the case on this increasingly pressured planet. The water was crystalline, and I swam through ever-changing chandeliers of brightly coloured fish glinting in the tropical sun. The first time I snorkelled in Tanganyika I literally screamed under water (it doesn't really work) when I saw a family group of cichlid fish exhibiting behaviors I'd only ever read about in books.
.
I was not too late, but you might be. In October 2016 Tanzania signed an agreement with the DRC for joint oil exploration. Oil has been found throughout the rift valley, and Tanganyika, the deepest lake, is sure to have reserves. However, a spill would be catastrophic, and, the way things are going in the region, inevitable. Hundreds of species that evolved over millions of years, millions of people with fish as their main source of protein, and countless potential visitors to this pristine corner of the world - all are at stake.
.
I'm not some big Instagram influencer, I can't make a #savetanganyika and expect it to go viral, but I'm working on it. Do some research, have a conversation, spread the word. I'll make a movement of this yet.

How she is with me ➡️ How she is with my friends

For some reason this madam shows my friends more PDA than she shows me. 🙄
Like excuse me, I'm your daughter, you know? The second apple of your eye?? Bring that love over here

And today was one of those days you need a moment with the wild.

The sun is hot but we expect high rainfall in Mara to make the savannah green again.
