Photo by @amivitale. Congratulations to @natgeo on reaching 100 million followers! Thank you to @natgeo and everyone who followers them for giving us this platform to share the issues that mean the most to us. Last year, followers like you, made this photo of Sudan's final moments with his keeper @wachira.joseph at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) the second most popular photo on the feed. You made this moment a rallying point, and showed your determination to use this as a wake up call of our shared humanity and planet. When we see ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves.

As a thank you for your support, @natgeo is having a photo contest for the next 11 hours only. To submit, simply post your most Nat Geo inspired photo on your feed using the hashtag #NatGeo100Contest. The top 10 photos will be posted on @natgeo and the winner gets a photo trip to Tanzania. Check out my story today for more details.

#BanTrophyHunting reserves and the organizations like @VETPAW that supports and operates on them! Share this and let’s take a stand against this bullshit! Our children would like to take their kids & still see the animals we grew up watching on @natgeochannel! Someone who was fortunate enough to acquire a piece of land that has some of the most beautiful & endangered species in the world on it, shouldn’t be allowed to profit by killing them off & letting the entire world lose them. VETPAW also needs to be questioned and prosecuted. Their NPO motto states they train anti-poachers in Africa, but in reality they pose as anti-poachers in Africa where it is illegal for them to do so. They use hunting reserves so they can legally carry weapons in pictures on Instagram, because the weapons are legal and allowed for hunters on these reserves. It’s a scam & they are misrepresenting their NPO & misleading their donors by using misc veterinarians and organizations like @RescueRhinoProject to actually help Rhinos while they just stand around and pose for the videos and take credit like they are doing it. Donations roll in, thanks to the help from VETPAW and VP board member @TimothySykes & his supporting @Karmagawa and also influencers like @SamKolder and even @TheRealTarzann! This post puts them all on the Buffalo Kloof Hunting Reserve helping and supporting their trophy hunting reserve. Link in our bio to see where VETPAW operates! Share & be heard! Ask VETPAW the questions u need answers from and don’t take their lies of working alongside the South African Police. DM us and we will give you a number to call to the @sapoliceservice_za and find out they do not work with VETPAW nor is VETPAW legally able to train or be anti-poachers in Africa. Demand answers! They are a non-profit 501c3 organization that hasn’t declared ANY of the hundreds of thousands they have publicly received to the IRS in 3 years!
Finally, our last picture proves that VETPAW founder @Ryan_vetpaw lied to the influencers he used for donations about being on a hunting reserve.

Veterinarians already tried to save this Rhino from poachers, then it was killed by a trophy hunter! We need to get “Conservation” organizations OFF hunting reserves, like @VETPAW is, and #BanTrophyHunting! How can u support hunting reserves & operate on them @Ryan_Vetpaw, while taking in donations under the motto “Veterans Empowered To Protect African Wildlife”?!?! These hunting reserves only care about money, not the animals & have everyone fooled that they don’t mind letting hunters blast away at all their beautiful Giraffe, Zebra, Hippo, Leopards & Baboons, but turn down way more money to protect Rhino & Elephants. They don’t have a heart for anything but money! VETPAW operates on 2 hunting reserves, The Greater Kuduland Hunting Reserve & The Buffalo Kloof Private Game Reserve, where people pay to kill animals. We have had reputable sources tell us the GKS HAS DONE Rhino & Elephant hunts in past. We also have not gotten an answer from VETPAW or the GKS, where VETPAW is headquartered, about what they did w/ the horns that they removed from their current Rhinos. We have been told by a few sources that they stashed them to wait for legislation to change so they can sell them, or took them to the black market. We cannot confirm this though, but does it really matter? Would you donate ur hard earned money to VETPAW knowing they work only on hunting reserves? That they haven’t disclosed financials even to the IRS for 3 yrs? That they block & ban their own donors & real anti-poachers when asked about big issues on their Instagram? Why would they not answer a single question if they were so innocent & good conversationalist? VETPAW u are making the Military, the Conservation Organization community, & many donors look very bad and u don’t even care! Speak up for ur organization now @Ryan_vetpaw & @streetwiseprofessor! Keep asking them questions on their IG everyone!

This beautiful black Rhino, having been treated by vets for wounds incurred by poachers he then dies from bullets from a trophy hunter. This is not a solution. Like this if you want an end to trophy hunting #bantrophyhunting

@VETPAW, everyone is posting that it’s #WorldPangolinDay! You are a (non-profit🙄)conservation organization that stands for Veterans Empowered To Protect African Wildlife. What the F’ are you protecting, besides the same few Rhinos on the fenced in hunting reserve where you operate? Why can’t you make a single post that shows you and your team actually doing something to help ANY animals, without proper conservationist in the picture and video doing it for you? Just one. Can you give the donors that? You took all their money with no questions and now won’t answer theirs when they question you back. You don’t do your @IRSnews financials, you don’t show any progress of anything, you don’t show what you have done. What is this bullshit? You have taken so much in donations, you could save every Rhino in Africa! Where is the money going?!? Speaking of what VETPAW stands for, how the F’ do you protect African Wildlife when you operate only on Hunting Reserves?!? In case anyone out there doesn’t realize this, hunters in Africa cause more suffering than poachers most of the time. They are rich amateur shooters who usually don’t shoot straight and wound the animal first. Some use bow and arrows! Then they have to chase it around the fenced in enclosure with vehicles until they find it and kill it. Sometimes it takes hours or even days. When the animal survives it is wounded for the rest of its life. How can an animal conservation company work on, help finance, and support a hunting reserve? A small fenced in area where the animals can’t even escape. @irsnews

@VETPAW, why is every photo of you doing anything, that is actually saving Rhinos or helping them, done by other people and you are just “assisting” to get the photo op? You don’t even give credit to this man or who he works with. “The Treating Veterinarian” Wow! Much respect to him at least, and way to make sure you keep getting the publicity and donations, instead of the real people that are making a difference, also like @RhinoRescueProject. They are the biggest part of all your videos that got you hundreds of thousands of reported donations and they got $4000, which barely covered their costs for the infusions. What the hell is anyone giving you money for? What happened to all the guns you use to post with, and going on patrols? Its boring as hell when you operate on the same two fenced in hunting reserves and tend to and feed hay to a small group of the same Rhinos. People don’t send you money because you just keep showing the same Rhinos and have your unqualified vets taking pictures with them every day. What the hell have you done and where are the horns that was cut off the Rhinos at the the hunting reserve where you operate on(GKS)? Everyone is getting tired of you running and hiding from the questions and blocking and deleting them when they ask. Why don’t you tell people where their F’ money is going?!?!? You haven’t filed your IRS financials in 3 years and in process of losing your 501c3 status soon. When was the last time you were even in Africa @Ryan_vetpaw? @irsnews

Repost from @natgeowild
Photo by @amivitale // Fatu is one of only two northern white rhinos alive on the planet, following the death of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino who died due to age related complications on March 19th at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) in Kenya. Fatu and her mother Najin are the last of the species remaining in the world and may hold the keys to saving the entire species. 
Sudan’s death could mean the extinction of his species, though scientists are considering other options involving Fatu and Najin, including stem cell procedures and harvesting eggs. If there is meaning in Sudan’s passing, it’s that all hope is not lost. This can be our wake-up call. In a world of more than 7 billion people, we must see ourselves as part of the landscape. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals.

Follow @amivitale to learn how to get involved and support @olpejeta’s vital conservation work.

I remember as a child when people told me that our generation could witness the extinction of many great species, including the Rhino 🦏 . I didn’t believe them. Though it really hit home as the world witnessed the passing of Sudan, the last male White Rhino on earth. Together we need to help and support foundations like @rhinosirf and @careforwild who are helping rescue, rehabilitate and protect these magnificent animals. ❤️🦏 #protectrhinos #stopthepoaching #wearechangemakers #togetherwecanmakeadifference

How lucky we felt to get close to these beautiful creatures last weekend 🦏🦏🦏 But you can’t see rhinos without the heartbreaking reminder that poaching is a huge crisis in South Africa. There are more than two brutal and illegal rhino killings each day (over half of them in the Kruger area) to meet enormous demand for their horn - predominantly in Asian markets, where it’s sold as traditional medicine and status symbols for the uber-wealthy. Doesn’t this feel absurd, given it’s made of keratin, just like our hair and fingernails?

With cautious optimism all round, we did hear that poaching numbers are down on previous years. And when we left, it had been over 500 days since a poacher was successful in the Sabi Sands after major efforts and investment to protect the borders of the reserve. But until the demand goes away, the sad likelihood is that poachers and traffickers will exploit other less-protected areas of Africa instead 💔

Reposted from @amivitale - I am proud to share this deeply touching film ‘KIFARU’ @kifaruthefilm, a feature doc film on the incredible people who are protecting the last northern white rhinos at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) in #Kenya. It was made by my friends @ragtagtribe and @thatguyhambone and follows the lives of two young, Kenyan recruits that join @olpejeta rhino caretaker unit, as they care for and protect Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, and the last two females. With the northern white rhino on the brink of extinction, the two ranger recruits are mentored by a seasoned elder with an unorthodox approach. Spanning over the course of the recruits’ first four years on the job, ‘KIFARU’ allows viewers to experience the joys and pitfalls of conservation firsthand through the lens of the men that look into the eyes of extinction on a daily basis. To learn more about where you can see it, follow @kifaruthefilm @ragtagtribe @thatguyhambone, @jemu_mwenda @wachira.joseph and @olpejeta

I am also offering a chance to win a trip to @olpejeta to meet these extraordinary people and the animals they work so hard to protect at omaze.com/rhinos (link in profile). For every donation of $10, you are automatically entered to win.

Kamara spends 12 hours every day watching over the vulnerable orphaned animals. This area was once home to one of the densest black rhino populations. Today, most locals have never seen a rhino in their life, despite it being the most perfect habitat for them. In just 2 generations this animal was poached almost to extinction. These communities and people like Kamara hold the key to saving Africa's great animals.
