URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Xanda, the son of Cecil the lion, has been killed by a trophy hunter just two years after his father met the same fate. Details are still unfolding about Xanda's death, but please urge the Zimbabwean government NOT to permit the export of his body as a trophy using the link in @humanesociety bio

Elephants love water. They like to swim, dive into the water and find great fun in fighting the waves. It also gives their joints a break with the buoyancy they get from the water. Info by @list25 📸: Vitaliy Sokol

Learning how to use a trunk is no small task for a baby elephant! While they get the hang of it, our Keepers are there to lend a hand during crucial moments, like dust baths.

Nature's great masterpiece, an elephant; the only harmless great thing.. ElephantParade is a social enterprise and runs the world’s largest art exhibition of decorated elephant statues. Created by artists and celebrities, each Elephant Parade statue is a unique art piece. The life-size, baby elephant statues are exhibited in international cities and raise awareness for the need of elephant conservation. They are then auctioned off, with the proceeds going to the Asian Elephant Foundation( Source---wikipedia & elephant parade website)#elephantparade #saveelephants #asianelephantfoundation #savewildlife #asianelephant #artforacause#socialexperiment #socialcause#saveelephants#ivoryfree#worthmorealive

Sharks have evolved over 450 million years, surviving 5 mass extinction events, keeping Ocean Ecosystems in balance. No other marine animals can fill the role that sharks play!

NDAWE’S JOURNEY ENDS AT THE HANDS OF HUMANS

Ndawe was the proof that elephants made the long journey between Tsavo and Amboseli. He was what was known as a ‘hundred pounder’, an elephant whose tusks weigh 100 pounds or more each, and of which there are thought to be less than 100 on the entire continent.
Sadly Ndawe’s journey has ended at the hands of humans, death delivered by four spears. He was speared for the first time in late April this year likely due to crop-raiding and was treated. But these most recent spearings are more sinister. The area where Ndawe lived is now separated from cropland by the newly constructed electric crop-protection fence, and so it is highly unlikely that these wounds were the result of conflict. The fact that three spears hit is even more unlikely in a spontaneous conflict incident. Big Life is confident that this was a poaching attempt, perhaps opportunistic.

None of the spears killed him immediately. Rangers reported the wounds and he was darted for treatment once again. Sadly, this time he did not get up. Infection from the wounds, his poor health, and age all contributed, but it was spears that killed him. At an estimated at 55-60 years, he was a grand old bull and with his teeth worn down he was right at the end of his life, but this was a sad way to finish it.

The only consolation is that his tusks have been retrieved, and his death will not line a poacher’s pockets. We are doing what we can to track his killers. However, his life will have an enduring impact because he is the proof of the importance of the Kimana conservancies and corridor, a highly threatened but critical link that elephants use to travel around the ecosystem.

"One dive that comes to mind is when I was at a place called Marion Reef in the Coral Sea [Hope Spot], diving in 70 feet of water, and these grey reef sharks circled us. I could not count them, there were so many – at least 100. They were forming a great wheel around us but were quietly curious, not aggressive." #SylviaEarle

Here's a sight you don't see often: sharks seeking human affection. Jim Abernethy, an award winning underwater photographer and die hard shark conservationist, has proven to the world that when they are not hunting, sharks enjoy human affection. His well established approach has allowed him to befriend some of the most 'notorious' sharks, such as lemon sharks and tiger sharks.
Shying away at first as they have never been stroked before, they keep coming back to him to be caressed more.
THESE are the stories the mass media should be told, not of vengeful human-killers.

This piece features a photo of a gorgeous bull elephant from Tsavo National Park, taken almost two years ago. My hope is that he is still roaming wild & free and that all elephants continue to do so. How sad the day would be if #Elephants were only preserved through art. We can't let that happen. #whenthebuyingstopsthekillingcantoo #wildaid #wildandfree #saveelephants #artnotivory @wildaid

😞🦈 Shark Week #facts This after a man named DAVE BENDER was on @nbcnews (and other media outlets) after he caught a 926-pound Mako shark on a fishing trip in NJ. He bragged about this "catch", which fought for its life for over an hour, being the "fish of a lifetime, to say the least". 😠 #Repost @keiko_conservation

We're proud to present our next Safari Central star! Meet the master of the art of breaking electric fences: Mweturia. Mweturia is a 40 year old bull elephant that lives in the Laikipia region of central Kenya. He breaks electric fences in order to enter farmers fields under the cover of darkness. Mweturia has recently started teaching younger males his old tricks. Because of him and his students, our conservation partner @SpaceforGiants is working tirelessly to better understand crop raiding behavior and to improving elephant fencing technology, so that both elephants and humans can coexist peacefully side by side. ⠀

Through our programs, HELP currently contributes to the development, welfare and safety of elephant handlers and trainers across India, Thailand and Myanmar.
.
Founded by Dr. Andrew McLean and Laurie Pond in 2010, HELP has grown significantly as Andrew’s systematic approach to elephant training is recognised as a viable and safe alternative to traditional submission-based methods. The remaining foundation members of HELP also have similar professional interests.
.
In 2014, H-ELP published its manual Elephant Friendly Training for Working Elephants written by Dr Andrew McLean @andrewneilmclean which has since been translated into Assamese, Malayalam, Thai and Burmese and it has unanimously received a positive reception. We are looking at evolving our book even further so more Mahouts can learn about our processes and we need your help 🙏🏻 . We love your donations! [link in bio] 📷 @benfultongillon .
