Throwback Thursday. Walking the boys freely. For me nothing in life makes me happier then making the animals happy. When I was able to take all the animals out for there daily walks, you can see the thrill, excitement in them. They were HAPPY. I have achieved many goals in my life, I still am to this point. One day, I will achieve my greatest goal. Opening a forever home, for animals, giving them wide areas, and having that space like how I had with Zeus & Apollo, to be able to let them have that feeling of being free. #saveanimals#savelions#saveendangeredspecies#notpets#bantrophyhunting#chasinggreatness#staymotivated#nevergiveup
The critically endangered Sumatran elephant population of the Seblat Landscape Area, North Bengkulu, Sumatra is under renewed threat due to the coal mining company PT INMAS ABADI attempting to obtain 600+ hectares of this protected forest to expand their coal output. This process is happening through local government avenues and we request immediate intervention from the highest levels of office in Indonesia to help maintain TWA Seblat Conservation and Landscape Area as it is intended to be. A habitat for the Sumatran elephant and many other endangered species.
TWA Seblat is also Bona’s home at the ECC (Elephant Conservation Center) and is home to 12 elephants. Bona is the youngest and is an 8 year old orphaned Sumatran elephant calf in the care of the Elephant Conservation Centre (ECC) in Seblat, North Bengkulu, Sumatra. Bona survived from an early age due to the amazing efforts from a team of passionate supporters from all over the world helping Bona by providing life saving milk supplements and has now become one of Bengkulu’s tourist icons to visit in the province of Bengkulu. On behalf of all of our global and local supporters, we are shocked to hear the ECC in Seblat Bengkulu will be relocated along with Bona and her family of elephants to accommodate an expansion of coal mining in the protected TWA Seblat Conservation and Landscape Area.
the Seblat natural landscape is not only the home to wildlife such as Sumatran elephants, Sumatran tigers, sun bears, tapirs, hornbills, siamang gibbon, sambar deers and other types of fauna, but also the largest native habitat of the world’s biggest flower, Rafflesia arnoldii. The effort to demand changes in the area to become a coal mining operation by PT Inmas Abadi in TWA Seblat is bound to destroy the forest ecosystem, which results in the destruction of all biodiversity in it.

These Philippine freshwater crocodiles -also known as the Mindoro crocodile - have up to 68 teeth which regularly fall out and are replaced by new ones during its lifespan. Nationally protected by law since 2001, there are only an estimated 250 left in the wild and conservation efforts continue for these critically endangered crocodiles.
Happy World Animal Day! 🦁
My friend Abby took this pic on our trip to South Africa so please check out her page sometime. @littlehuck
I met this cutie 3 months ago now. Let’s remember each day that animals will continue to fade from our planet if we’re not careful.
For example, most big animals in Africa exist mostly in national parks. These parks are gated, only allowing the animals to roam so far. These include leopards, lions, rhino, elephants, and giraffe. Cheetahs populations are also starting to dwindle. Many might not know that they used to roam the Middle East as well.

Found this old photo in my Path backup files. Can’t imagine what human greed can do to them.
Hi, my name is Kopral. This is my photo with my best friend Shelton. We are two very special orangutans who require extra love and care. Due to our disabilities caused by horrible tragedies, neither of us can be released back into the wild. Luckily, we have miraculously found strength and friendship in each other. We need your help to care for us for the rest of our lives. Adopt now! There are many orangutans other than Kopral and Shelton who need our help. By adopting one of these beautiful orangutans you will help providing the care and rehabilitation needed for orphaned orangutans to be returned to the wild.
