"Look beneath the surface: never let a thing's intrinsic quality of worth escape you"
- Marcus Aurelius

A Hippo peaks out of the Ngorongoro crater lake just long enough for an eye level shot. .. Thankfully this big fellow was calm as the water because they can be quite unpredictable animals and have the infamous record of killing more people in Africa then Lions making them one of Africa's deadliest land mammals. .

"The mind is like water. When it's turbulent, it's difficult to see. When it's calm, everything becomes clear." - Prasad Mahes

A young Tigeress takes to the water to cool down as the temperature in the jungle rises above 45 degrees (113 Fahrenheit). This is one of Noors Tigress three sub adult cubs. .

"Each morning we are born again, what we do today is what matters most." - Buddha

A young Tigress in morning light contemplates her next move. Soon she will be forced to leave her mothers side. When she does, she'll have to carve out a place for herself in a jungle where only the strong survive. .

Edit:: THE PRESIDENT HAS PUT THE DECISION ON HOLD. He has listened to his better angels. Thank you to all who have helped raise awareness! Please keep up the fight by signing petitions and supporting causes that promote Elephant welfare. 😊🙏✊

It seems that once again we are headed down a dark road... Today news reports the Trump administration has lifted the importation ban of elephant hunting trophies. The ban which was set by the previous Obama administration now allows wealthy big-game hunters to kill Elephants and bring their tusks and hides back to America. The justification for lifting the ban is that the money gained will aid conservation efforts.

This is truly heart breaking news and perhaps a sign of the times where wildlife and natural resources are so easily forgone for short term gains of politics, profit and pleasure.

I know an instagram post is unlikely to change the mind of the most powerful man on earth...one voice won't reach him, but if we all cry out maybe he will hear us. Perhaps if he was implored to look into an Elephants eyes, he'd realize that killing a sentient being for purposes of sport is morally reprehensible. Perhaps in this one instance he will listen to his better angels. Hunting can never be a solution in the conservation of endangered species.

President Trump, this isn't a political or economic issue. It's a humanitarian one. We are stewards of this planet and its inhabitants. Guardians of those who don't have a voice. Please use yours to do the right thing.

Portrait of the critically endangered Rüppell's Griffon Vulture. Sadly, this species is threatened by loss of habitat and human related activites like hunting, poisioned carcasses and the misguided superstitous practices of using them as medicine. Establishing more protected areas is essential to ensuring the Rüppell's #vulture doesn't become extinct.

Dominance is a lesson hard learnt. By play fighting these two young tigers are learning the only law of the jungle that matters for tigers - survival of the fittest. Today, these two sisters are sparring, tomorrow, when they leave their mothers side they will need to fight for real to take and hold their own territory. The lessons learnt this day will serve them in the future in a land where only the mighty reign. .

A female cheetah nervously scans the Serengeti Savannah from a termite mound. Danger is ever present here. It lurks in the grass, waiting patiently for opportunities. And this cheetah has more to protect than just her own life. She is pregnant and a few days from giving birth. The future mothers vigilance is critical to ensuring her offspring survive. With some luck, one day her cubs will sprint alongside her on these great plains... .
