Beautiful youth of Nata Village. It is very scenic walk home from school when you live next door to the Serengeti.

Many tourists that visit Asia are usually interested in riding an elephant. This might sound like a really awesome idea until you realise the terrible things that take place behind the scenes.Before a young elephant can be ridden, it has to go through the stage of what is called a 'training crush.' Or phajann. The training crush is a harsh process where baby elephants are prepared for work in the entertainment or labour industries. This training process is designed to crush a young elephant's spirit. A baby elephant as young as one-month-old can be seen tied to a tree. The elephant was actually taken from her mother that week and she often cries at night due to the separation.The young animals would then be fed with only bananas and water even though it is more advisable for elephant calves to be drinking milk until they are two-four years old.They would also endure such horrors as caging, sleep deprivation, starvation and even regular beatings by ignorant men, with not care in the world all they are is money. The babies will then be cut and wounded just to endure pain. Almost all elephants in Asia are broken this way before they allow humans ride them.If this story breaks your heart just like it did ours, the only thing we can do is to avoid all tourist attraction that includes trained elephants. Do not be fooled this is your elephant ride, elephant painting, elephant massage and elephant Selfie when traveling please think of the elephant In front of you, he or she is living a life of slavery. #endthetorture #bullhooks #phajaan #asia #thailand #india #kerala #saveelephants #dontridethem ❀️🐘 - #regrann

Exploring the elements of nature, it has a solitary, roaming spirit as it moves from the ruggedness of the great outdoors to the inner calm.
Running through summer, with a emotional intensity and an atmospheric friction where the still and stormy collide.#iamnikon #corbett #jimcorbett #wildlife #wildlifephotography #photography #wildanimals #conservation #tigerphotography #wildlifeconservation #natgeo #asia #tourism #uttarakhand #elephants #saveelephants #travel #iammowgali #travelphotography #adventure #safari #forest #wwf #wwfasia #indianwildlife #indiaunseen #indianforest #tiger

Photo by @amivitale. After a long hot morning exploring in the wilderness it's time for the elephants at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) to have a mud bath, followed by a dusting. The mud is essential to keep them cool and protect them from the Kenyan sun. It's also heaps of fun! Reteti is part of the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in the Mathews Range of Northern Kenya and was established in response to demands from the local community, who recognize wildlife as an opportunity to improve livelihoods.

L'uccisione di specie selvatiche Γ¨ la seconda causa del declino della biodiversitΓ  globale e dell'estinzione delle specie. MA quando di parla del mercato dell'avorio, il problema non Γ¨ solo ecologico ma anche socio-economico. (E. J. Milner-Gulland et E. L. Bennett, 2003). "Poaching and its potential linkages to other criminal, even terrorist, activities constitute a grave menace to sustainable peace and security in Central Africa"
Ban Ki-moon, Secretaty General of The United Nations.

Inaccessible by road or plane. When the #r.e.s.c.u.e team trekked up there on foot and swiftly and smoothly got him out of the well, they were quick to pick up the tracks of the calfs herd. They tracked them for 6 hours. This little calf leading the way. Sadly the herd had moved on quickly and we didn't manage to catch up with them. He is called Lekeji and is now settled in to the sanctuary. We can't wait for the day Lekeji can meet up with his mum and family on these very same mountain paths. #elephants #retetielephants #northkenya #climatechange #bethechange @nrt_kenya @conservationorg @tusk_org #savetheelephants #conservation #wildlife #adorable #animalslover #animals #animal #saveanimals #africa #africanamazing #Africa #magicalkenya #kenya #saveelephants #whyilovekenya #everydayafrica #natureisspeaking #nikonusa #nikonlove #niknnofilter #nikonambassador #nikond5s - #regrann
