Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage - Sri Lanka 🐘❤️ The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is an orphanage, nursery and captive breeding ground for wild Asian elephants located at Pinnawala village.
The primary purpose of the orphanage has been to provide a lifeline to the orphaned baby elephants and adult elephants lost in the wilderness, accident survivors or abused by private owners.
It was planned for the facility to attract local and foreign visitors, the income from which would help to maintain the orphanage.
The elephants at the Orphanage aren’t subjected to any form of stress, abuse or threat at all and are supported by a team of employees numbering to over 100 including a group of mahouts.

This is Maxwell, he’s the resident rhino at @dswt - He’s been living here since 2007. He was found without his mother about 3km away from the orphanage when he was a yearling. He has a degenerative defect in his eyes and is blind. In this video he knew some visitors were hanging around, it was band of monkeys. Rhinos are solitary animals, so he wasn’t that thrilled that they were loitering in his area. #blackrhino #loveanimals #savetherhino #orphanblack #orphanrhino #kenya #africa #dswt #dswtfosterparents #maxwell #conservation #bekindtoanimals #dontletthemdisappear #worthmorealive #photographer #artist #awareness #awarenessleadstochange #saynotopoaching

The mighty silver back 😍😍 And what a creature it is with it being 6x stronger than a human man, eating up to 30kg of food a day and can sleep for up to 13 hours along with being the biggest of the primates the silver back deffo has my vote 👌👌👌

Bucket List Check ✅✔️ One of the most important activities of the Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation project is its hatchery in Sri Lanka.
Within the sanctuary of the project, collected and rescued eggs can hatch safely away from predators before being released into the sea. In addition, a certain number from each hatching are kept back for a short period for 'headstarting' before release. 🐢❤️ The hatchery program is designed to maximise the number of hatchlings reaching the sea and surviving through the critical stages of their early life.

Although the population of wild tigers are on the rise again, sadly 97% of all wild tigers have been lost over the past decade. There is thought to be as few 3,890 tigers left, mainly due to poaching and human encroachment on habitats.

Did you know there were once nine subspecies of tigers: Bengal, Siberian, Indochinese, South Chinese, Sumatran, Malayan, Caspian, Javan and Bali? Of these, the last three are extinct, one is extinct in the wild, and the rest are endangered. It’s important to give back with us, to help all the wild animals with Chumbites. We give 15% of our profits to WildAid.

Victor Hasselblad Sea Turtle Research & Conservation Center, Kosgoda - Sri Lanka 🐢

The main aim of the project is to monitor local sea turtle activity and conserve the local nesting sites. The center aims to make the public more aware of how endangered these beautiful creatures are and just how important it is to help protect them before it is too late. #seaturtle #8yearsold #greenturtle #conservationproject #kosgoda #createawareness #SayNoToPoaching #SeaTurtlesAreNotADelicacy #endangeredspecies #seaturtleconservation #turtlesofinstagram #srilankadiaries

The tallest mammal on earth is struggling to stand out #worldgiraffeday
• •
Giraffe populations have plummeted by more than 40 percent in the last 30 years. The West African subspecies of giraffe is estimated to have fewer than 550 Individuals left.
•
”Giraffe tails are highly prized by many African cultures. The desire for good-luck bracelets, fly whisks, and thread for sewing or stringing beads have led people to kill the giraffe for its tail alone. Giraffes are easily killed and poaching (now more often for their meat and hide) continues today. In the late 19th and 20th centuries herds of 20 to 30 animals were recorded, now on average herd sizes contain fewer than six individuals. The IUCN lists four main threats to this species: habitat loss, civil unrest, illegal hunting, and ecological changes (climate change and habitat conversion). As human populations grow and increase agricultural activities, expand settlements, and construct roads, the giraffe is losing its beloved acacia trees, which are its main source of food.” ~ @africanwildlifefoundation

The giraffe population is decreasing at alarming rates due to significant habitat loss and illegal poaching for their hides, tails, and meat. In just 15 years, the population is a only 1/3rd of what it once was. So to celebrate World Giraffe Day... support conservation efforts and be part of the solution. 🦒#worldgiraffeday

For this giraffe, it took just one misstep to fall victim to a snare. For our DSWT/KWS Meru Vet Unit, it took many hands and quick action to reverse the harm inflicted by humans.
When our team reached the male giraffe’s side, he was clearly in excruciating pain from the wound. They cut away the snare with bolt cutters and soon had the giraffe back on his feet, with a very relieved spring in his step!

Snares may be simple, but they cause immense suffering. Learn how, in partnership with the @kenyawildlifeservice, our De-Snaring Teams are working across Tsavo and Meru (where this giraffe was found) to remove these illegal traps:

It saddens me to see wildlife taken from their natural habitat and put into cages/tanks for amusement. Even zoo's are doing this. It is not a sanctuary. Very rarely do we see them but they are out there. They are helping save our wildlife. HOWEVER, this picture reminded me of why I have hated circuses since the moment I realized exactly what happens before, during and after. Animals are abused, hit, and tortured all for YOUR entertainment. They feel pain, alone, abandoned, and unloved. They have feels as humans do. Educate yourselves and understand that circuses are businesses just like Trump; an incapable mentally ill individual who isn't doing any good but destroying our communities more everyday. They are harmful and neglectful. Such a cruel world. #saynotopoaching #saynotoviolence #saveourwildlife #saynotocircuses #gogreen #lovethem #respectwildlife #saynototrump #lovelife #earth

We love this photo by @morkelerasmus ! It gives such life and character to #rhinos everywhere & reminds us that they’re #worthmorealive . Yet last year 1054 rhinos were poached.

Today's #illustration is dedicated to my special friend Maisha, amazing orphaned baby #elephant from @dswt that my humans and I recently adopted 💚💚. @dswt is based in Kenya and is the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa. In the #DSWT rescue camp, loving and caring keepers are dedicated 24h a day to these little orphans. They are taking care of them from the day they are rescued and treat them as their own children. The most important is that they are preparing them to be returned to the wild.

By creating these drawings, I would like to spread a word about cruelty and human greedy towards animals. The idea is to involve u too. Post anything dedicated to the animals with the hashtag #bubithebearlovesanimals ❤️

It's time to connect children to the environment!
Environmental education is an integral part of the Wildlife Works REDD+ awareness program. This is Kajire Primary School and Kajire Girls Secondary School, located in one of Wildlife Works project areas. The area is similar to many other rural places where locals are dependent on charcoal production, bush meat poaching and unsustainable agricultural methods to meet their survival.
We believe that by teaching the younger generation about the importance of addressing environmental challenges and taking care of wildlife, we help shape their attitude from a very young age. (Swipe for more )
