The invasive sika deer! Originally from Japan, the Boy Scouts brought them to Assateague Island to be apart of their petting zoo. Afterwards they released them and now they thrive on the island. Their success comes at the expense of the native white tailed deer, who compete for food!

No hay palabras para describir este sentimiento. 🐘🐘🐘Decidimos ir a un retiro de elefantes porque NO apoyamos el maltrato animal. Estamos en contra de montarlos, de utilizarlos para espectáculos y trabajo🚫🚫🚫. Los elefantes domésticos no pueden regresar a la naturaleza y centros de retiro como este ayudan a mantenerlos sanos y felices💙. Quienes visitamos este lugar los alimentamos, los bañamos y cepillamos y ellos gozan..!!! •

~
I am of this land
A land where magical skies illuminate every dawn
And each day submits with a golden hypnotic light
A land where the endless horizon greets the eternal sky
And the heavens seem to meet the earth
I am of this land
A land I share with incredible beings
Some large and others small
From the mighty buffalo to the modest shrew
A land that’s flawless in every way
Where each sunrise plays out the magic of the new day
I am of this land
A land where giants walk amongst us
One that’s home to the king of beasts
As well as the mighty matriarch
I am from this land
A land where the ancient aroma of the dust
Intoxicates you for the remainder of your days
A land to which you forever dream of returning
I am of this land
A land or incredible beasts
And beautiful people
I am of this land
A land of endless beauty
Where a sense of mesmerizing awe is the sentiment of the day
A land that makes you want to belong
A land that casts a spell
A land that changes you forever
A land that converts all who visit
And makes them but another Scatterling of Africa.
I am of this land

In some species, the males just "hit it and quit it", but most vultures are monogamous and share in all the parenting duties of raising a chick! Happy Father's Day! ☀️

Emperor #penguins are undoubtedly the best examples of parenthood fiercely watching over eggs and chicks. Mother and father make sure their #offspring is #fit for life at #antarctica
#emperorpenguin are not yet #endangered, but sadly, #climatechange is melting the ice platforms and therefore forcing them to retreat.

Lily Caterpillar Moth - Spodoptera picta

The lily caterpillar is black with yellow and pale grey or whitish stripes running along the length of the body. There are two black spots like eyes near the rear, and a dark band about a quarter way down the body. The eye is reddish brown. The yellow stripe is bolder on mature caterpillars. The adult moth is reddish brown and cream. Lily caterpillars are a significant horticultural pest of plants in the lily family such as clivias, amaryllis, hymenocallis and crinums. They feed at night on the leaves and also damage the leaf sheath at the base of the plant. This damage often kills the plant. (Source: OzAnimals.com)

I love to photograph Australian wildlife and try bringing the captured wildlife closer to my audience. By showing these beautiful animals I hope to make the viewer aware of the fragility of nature and what we need to protect. •
Every day our planet loses about 200 species of plants, bird, and mammals.
I hope to capture a fraction of them before they are gone…

To Dads who are always ready for a game ..... even though sometimes they may not be expecting it! Happy Fathers Day! .
We met this pride early one morning just after sunrise and it was such a delight to watch them all as they began to get ready to set off across the Masai Mara in Kenya. And if course the cubs wanted to play while the adults just wanted to get going. 😊This cub is hoping for a game with one of the prides males.
Though it is usually the dominant male in a pride that mates with the females, other males may sometimes get a chance to mate. So this male may not be this cubs father but the whole pride will share parenting duties for all the cubs

One of Zakouma's youngest black rhinos enjoys a mud bath in the safety of her enclosure in @Zakouma_National_Park in Chad. Her name is Farahatna, which means "the one that brings happiness". The rhino monitors, who are her guardians, have remarked that "she has always been the happy one” and since her arrival she has brought with her hope for the revival of the species for the nation of Chad. All six black rhinos are under the watchful eyes of their keepers, and all are adjusting well to their new surroundings and change in diet. They are being attended to by the veterinary team throughout the day and night to ensure for their wellbeing after their historic 3,000-mile journey from South Africa that took place on 3 May.

A pair of American Oystercatchers enjoying the sun😎🌞
. . .
Oystercatchers have rebounded after seeing their population decline in the 19th century. Like most shore birds they suffer from recreational beach use and rising populations along the coasts. Projects to help protect their nests have allowed them to recover as the population continues to rise.

This is Micheal’s watercolor painting he finished today! I’m so in love with it! It makes me want to go save every elephant. He has a tear because he is endangered. Thousands die each year for their ivory. 😢

For years now researchers have been puzzled over how turtles travel for thousands of miles in the open ocean and mysteriously find their way back to their birthplace beaches. A new research study published in Current Biology has uncovered that these amazing creatures use unique magnetic signatures to find their way home.

To read the full article, go to: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2018.03.022

To save these ocean dwellers we need to educate ourselves and address the many issues they face. Most importantly, we must reduce and #beatsigleuseplastics. And well-known breeding grounds must have stronger protections implemented against poaching and over-exploitation. Fisheries should also be urged to integrate Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs) on their equipment.

Arthur and Summer have been spending the day together outside exploring the reserve and enjoying the sunshine! Both Arthur and Summer light up when it is time to go out, and Summer has been showing Arthur all her favourite places to graze!

Despite the sunshine, winter is in full swing at #CareforWildRhinoSanctuary, and with all of our rhino babies drinking plenty of bottles of milk a day and eating lots of teff, we are in need of food for our rhinos.

Please consider shopping at our online rhino grocery market, at www.rhinosos.com/rhino-grocery-market to buy essentials such as Denkavit, teff, lucern and rhino pellets for our rhinos, which are delivered to the sanctuary!

Photo by @amivitale. With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. On March 19th, wildlife ranger Joseph Wachira, 26 comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino left on this planet moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralov in the #Czechrepublic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF.
In 2009, I had the privilege of following this gentle hulking creature on his journey from the snowy Dvur Krulov zoo in the Czech Republic to the warm plains of Kenya, when he was transported with three of his fellow Northern White Rhinos in a last ditch effort to save the subspecies. It was believed that the air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time, there were 8 Northern white rhinos alive, all in zoos. Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind. Follow @olpejeta and @amivitale to learn more what we can all do to #coexist.

Feeding time at the elephant orphanage
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This little elephant is an orphan. Along with many other orphaned infant elephants, he has been rescued by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, where I was lucky enough to encounter him. His mother and family were most likely killed by poachers for their ivory, leaving him alone, traumatised and grieving. Baby elephants are fully dependent on their mother's milk for the first two years of life and continue weaning until the age of four, so DSWT have developed a special milk formula to feed the orphans every three hours and their keepers stay with them twenty-four hours a day, even sleeping with the elephants during the night. DSWT takes in orphan elephants from all over Kenya and raises them until they can be released into the herds of Tsavo National Park and reintegrated back into the wild.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

March of the gentle giants
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Elephants are the world’s largest and most majestic land mammals. Their name comes from the Greek word ‘elephas’ which means ‘ivory’, but due to illegal ivory poaching there are only two main species of elephant left on the planet: The African Elephant and the Asian Elephant. The Asian Elephant is now an endangered species and the African Elephant is considered vulnerable. Without urgent action to save them, elephants could disappear from the wild within a single generation. We must act to save them now, before it is too late. To do this we have to start with education and knowledge. Without that, the children of the future will only remember elephants as the dinosaurs of the 21st century. #savetheelephants
