Look at these magnificent lions! We have less then 20,000 left. Their range has been reduced by 90%. Not one cell in my body wants to shoot them and import their heads back to the US to put on my wall. We must keep the pressure on #trump as he wants to life the ban on importing heads, tails, skin and feet. I'm so thankful for the Africans working to save THEIR last lions!!! #worthmorealive #Repost @africanparksnetwork (@get_repost) ・・・ Wildlife is thriving in Akagera National Park in Rwanda. @sophy_roberts , journalist for @cntraveler , returned to Rwanda three years after her first visit to the park. Since her first visit, @akagerapark has been transformed into a Big Five destination with the reintroduction of lions in 2015 and more recently rhinos in May of this year. The lion population has more than doubled since their arrival, which marked the return of the species after a 20-year absence. Akagera has been described as one of the most dramatic turnarounds in the safari industry, with significant investments made in securing the area for the benefit of wildlife and people. This includes an anti-poaching helicopter, ranger training, and a pack of Belgian Malinois and Dutch shepherd tracker dogs. Sophy remarks that, “there has been no poaching in the park this year. I am dumbfounded. The last time I visited Rwanda, the snare pile in Akagera’s HQ reached almost to my chin”. We spent six years making the park safe for the return of key species like lions and rhinos and our dedicated team continues to ensure their safety, and are able to breed and flourish. This week, Sophy journeys to the exceptional Liuwa Plain National Park in Zambia, where the open vistas and extraordinary wildlife are waiting to greet her. You can join her along her journey on @sophy_roberts as she shares live stories from the field. Photo: Gael Vande Weghe #Liuwa #Zambia #Wildlife #AfricanParks #Instastories #Notesfromthefield
I've been to #ithumba in #kenya - where the baby elephants are introduced to living wild and eventually transition.

Caught on film this baby chimp playing with her reflection - just like human babies. #Repost @natgeo (@get_repost) ・・・ Video by @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom When the female chimp we knew as Farafa led her young infant, Fanta, to a secret waterhole in a forest in Senegal, we witnessed something that made us wonder about the nature of chimps—and our connection to them. Fanta was just one year old and had never experienced a water hole before. While her mother watched, she explored the water’s surface at first with a leaf, but then she discovered her own reflection and began to interact with it, poking at it, making funny faces, and ultimately kissing herself, like a human child might do in front of a mirror. When we showed this video to Jane Goodall she was as enchanted by this display as we were. Fieldwork with chimps is hard, but being able to capture glimmers of insight about our fundamental kinship with chimps makes it all worthwhile. There are less than 200 chimps left in Senegal and their future hangs in the balance, just like it does for all chimps in Africa. As we gather together with family during this holiday season, let’s embrace our next of kin on the great tree of life. We can all help chimps survive by supporting the individuals and organizations that protect them and the forests they depend on. Follow me @FransLanting for more amazing images and stories of these unique chimps in Senegal. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @janegoodallinst @Rootsandshoots @World_wildlife @conservationorg @racingextinction #Senegal #Wildlife #Conservation #Chimps #Rootsandshoots #Family #Play #Wonder #Gratitude
What does it mean when a fifty foot long whale weighing 60,000 pounds hurls itself out of the ocean over and over. I shot this on #8K in slow motion as I wanted the moment to last forever while studying every detail. More importantly, we must control ship traffic in critical migratory and feeding corridors of these noise sensitive leviathans.

There r many ways to win & one way is public pressure. We've won huge victories helping animals by tackling transport of animals for vivisection. We can now save elephants and lions from Trumps gift to his sons of lifting the ban on bringing lion and elephant heads, feet, tusks and tails home to display in their dens! Join me and GO To FedEx.com & UPS.com, twitter and Facebook and tell them DO NOT FLY DEAD ELEPHANT AND LION TO THE US!!! #Repost @racingextinction (@get_repost) ・・・ 🐘💕🦁 DOUBLE TAP if you want @ups and @fedex to STOP transporting hunting trophies! Head on over to their pages and kindly ask them to TAKE A STAND for species on the brink. Elephants and lions will continue to be slaughtered as long as wildlife slayers with something to prove can ship heads, tails, and skins back home. #BeKindToElephants #RacingExtinction
I mean what??? How adorable is this 5 day old kitten?!!! #Repost @kittenxlady ・・・ It’s hard to believe how much sweetness can be packed into a tiny palm-sized life. He was so small when he was found that he was brought in a tissue box, so we named him Hanky (Hank for short.) After a big meal, Hank prefers not to go right to bed—instead, he likes to make biscuits in my hands for a bit, and fall asleep mid-cuddle. #tinybutmighty #kittenlady
