As leopard print patterns come back into fashion we encourage you all to take a moment when you see, buy or wear the print, to think about and help generate awareness of leopard in their natural environment and the importance of habitat protection. This moment was captured by Scott Ramsay @love_wild_africa this past week @grumetifund.

Some Monday morning zen vibes sent from Eric! He is so happy in his 10acres and browsing on indigenous vegetation as well as still getting some lucerne. He is such a dude! #singitagrumetifund #grumetifund #conservation #rhino #eric #blackrhino @sdzsafaripark

Meet Donatira. She is part of the @grumetifund Enterprise Development program. Our program officer for Enterprise Development, Frank Damson, has been working with Donatira for almost a year. Her restaurant business has grown significantly and she has bought a space and employed three other people. We are so proud of her and the team that has made this happen and grateful for our partnership with @raizcorp_

Elephants from the air in Ikorongo. Loving how this represents the diversity of the concession. If the rate of poaching continues it is possible that elephants will be extinct in the wild in less than 10 years. Let’s not let this happen! Link in bio to support the @grumetifund and our efforts to continue protecting these keystone species.• 📷Scott Ramsay @love_wild_africa

This weekend we were able to put two types of transmitters in Eric and Laikipia’s horns. These devices are a critical part of the rhino security plan and will allow us to keep close track of their movements. We also tipped their horns to ensure that they cannot hurt each other when they come into contact.
A big thanks to TAWIRI and to @andre_uys_vet for the incredible veterinary work and support.
Eric’s immobilisation was a bit more complicated than Laikipias, but both rhino are doing great.
Today, Eric’s gate into a larger enclosure was opened ! 📷 by Scott Ramsay @love_wild_africa

We are so disappointed to hear the news out of China about the sale of rhino horn and tiger bone. The @grumetifund conservation strategy to bolster the population of eastern black rhino in the Serengeti ecosystem remains steadfast. Eric is part of an initial phase to enhance genetics in the area and we are hoping he and Laikipia are a suitable match...soon to find out.

This pic from @blackbeanproductions captures the intensity and dedication of the scouts. To make sure that the scouts are as prepared as possible for any type of encounter, they train daily. Here Gotera Gamba, the Head of Law Enforcement Operations leads the Special Operations Group on a training session in the rain.
This image was captured for the documentary @edgeofexistencefilm which tells the challenging story of one the biggest issues being faced in this area - human wildlife conflict.

Colobus monkeys are often found in the fig trees along the Grumeti River. It almost looks as if they belong elsewhere ...but they don’t! This beautiful guy was photographed by our Executive Director, Stephen Cunliffe, from a helicopter during one of the @grumetifund riparian surveys. #singitagrumetifund #grumetifund #tanzania #wildlife #conservation #colobusmonkey

The Serengeti Girls Run has sadly come to an end. Five days, nine women, 400 high school girls, up to 90kms of running and thousands of animals. Thank you to all who made this work! Tomorrow we start our girls empowerment events at two local schools, reaching 1000 girls, all funded by the donations from this Safari with a Purpose. 📷@blackbeanproductions

The second day of running was another success!! The power of women supporting women (and men supporting women) has been inspiring. We are super excited for the last day of running and finishing strong! 📷@blackbeanproductions
