Photo/Caption by @lovejoy_kisali Conflict with predators often arise when livestock are grazed in wildlife habitats and illegally inside the park boundaries during the dry season. There is a substantial threat of decline due to persecution by local residents and, less commonly, non-selective poaching with snares, and traffic deaths outside parks. My aim is to instill knowledge and lasting memories associated with lion and other large cats. Lions are killed out of fear and misunderstanding. If we can replace these perceptions with factual knowledge and positivity associated with the species, we may be able to save the lions.. TUNZA! CONSERVE!
What do you do if a rhino walks straight up to you while you're filming and wants a belly scratch?🦏 You better rub that rhino like your life depends on it! Lucky for me she left my camera alone! 🎥
What an amazing experience this was! These incredible animals humble you every time you see them. Please think about the fact that if we can't save this iconic specie from extinction, then what will we be able to save? Please note that I have been lucky enough to film this rhino for quite a few years and because of that have built up a level of TRUST. DO NOT try and do this with a truly 'WILD' rhino as it may end up with you being dead! FYI - I did not approach this animal, it was completely her decision to let me come into her personal space and touch her! Video by @disunitythefilm #WildlifePlanet
