Happy #WorldAfricaDay !πŸŽ‰πŸ˜πŸ¦πŸͺ - Africa is a hugely diverse and beautiful continent, full of incredible ecosystems found nowhere else on Earth from the humid rainforests of the Congo to the arid deserts of the Saharan belt. - With all this natural beauty comes a huge amount of amazing wildlife including some of the most iconic species on Earth. Yet almost all of these species are under threat; from the majestic elephants and lumbering rhinos to the giraffes with their heads high in the trees. - Illegal poaching contributes to over 30,000 elephants being killed every single year. And when you consider that there are only 320,000 elephants left now there isn't a lot of time left to save them (One elephant is killed every 15 minutes). Sign the petiton in my bio to help save animals like rhinos and elephants form extinction this #WorldAfricaDay or donate to groups like @wildhoodfoundation or @savetherhinointernational or the many others, that have sanctuaries to rehabilitate animals or have anti-poaching teams tirelessly working on the ground to protect. Also you can 'adopt' an elephant for just Β£3 through organisations like @wwf and the money donated will go into elephant conservation. -- Please repost to get as many signatures on the petition as possible and raise awareness about the plight that elephants and other animals are facing. -- Golden rays shining through an African acacia tree.

Sharing the very talented Peter Scott's design #animalrescue . 'Despite an elephant being killed every 15 minutes Theresa May ditches a Tory manifesto pledge to push for a total ban on ivory trading in Britain. Meanwhile, the survival of a species hangs in the balance.' #BanTheTrade #ivorytrade #stoppoaching

The western lowland gorilla is the largest species of primate in the world. They live in a small portion of countries in west-central Africa and number around 100,000 individuals. Their intelligence is of great interest to scientists; many examples of gorillas using sign language to communicate with humans have been documented. Despite this, they are victims of poaching throughout much of their native range, both as trophies and for human consumption. These risks have sadly placed them as critically endangered. β€’ β€’ β€’ #thinkinganimalsunited #thinkinganimals #westernlowlandgorilla #gorilla #gorillas #africananimals #africanmammals #ape #apes #primate #primates #intelligentanimals #intelligent #antipoaching #stoppoaching #endpoaching #criticallyendangered #criticallyendangeredspecies #endangered #endangeredanimals #endangeredspecies #animalawareness #conservation #environmentalprotection #animalshavefeelingstoo
By @amivitale : "Photo by @amivitale. Shorty the giraffe loves to give kisses! Here he greets wildlife keeper Banki at Sarara Camp (@sararacamp ) on the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in Northern Kenya. Shorty, or "Fupi" in Swahili, will go back to the wild once strong enough to survive on his own. He is a reticulated giraffe, which scientists have recently determined to be one of four distinct species of giraffe. Reticulated giraffe number about 8,000 individuals β€” as a separate species, it makes them some of the most endangered large mammals in the world as the population has dropped an estimated 70 percent in 15 years. The excellent wildlife keepers at Sarara and nearby Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) are working hard to rescue and rehabilitate abandoned and orphaned animals. @nrt_kenya @lewa_wildlife @nature_africa @kenyawildlifeservice @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa #giraffe #savegiraffes #reticulatedgiraffe #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #natgeolodges #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikond5s #photojournalism #amivitale "
Just like we need our hair and fingernails, rhinos need their horns. #STOPPOACHING
An incredible team of people goes around and dehorns rhinos to save them from poachers. One of them had a perfect heart in his horn. πŸ¦πŸ’• - #themodernveganista #savethesurvivors #rhino #stoppoaching #ivory #africa

"fur-free fridays" should be stopped ! #STOPPOACHING
animals have rights just as much as humans do. #STOPPOACHING
Despite an elephant being killed every 15 minutes, Theresa May ditches a Tory manifesto pledge to push for a total ban on ivory trading in Britain, choosing to bow to pressure from wealthy antiques traders instead. Meanwhile the survival of the species hangs in the balance. Image courtesy of @patrickgeorge_illustration #banthetrade #ivorytrade #stoppoaching #lovelephants
Despite an elephant being killed every 15 minutes Theresa May ditches a Tory manifesto pledge to push for a total ban on ivory trading in Britain. This comes after heavy pressure from wealthy antiques traders who have been lobbying Teresa May hard to drop the ban. Meanwhile, the survival of a species hangs in the balance. #BanTheTrade #ivorytrade #stoppoaching
