Today is my birthday and it got me thinking about age and it’s apparent relevance. This photo of a market merchant in Silvia, 🇨🇴 is several years old and I really have no idea how old this man is. What I can say is that from my brief interaction he felt like an old soul with a young spirit. I think that’s a pretty good way to be. 🐛🐞🐝🕷🐜🎥 #documentary #nature #insects #photography #photographer #entomology #bugs #filmmaking #filmmaker #macro #macrophotography #film #filmfestival #awards #portraitphotography #forest #amazon #rainforest #farmersmarket #youngspirit #sxsw2016 #eco #conservation #animals #travel #adventure #directing #producer #story
The above photo was snapped during a moment with wildlife I will never forget. The emotions behind this photograph were stronger than anything I could ever capture. . We approached this pair of female white rhinos on foot, which changed everything for me. . I saw how easy it is to walk up on these beautiful animals so long as you understand them, their behaviors and their senses. Approach slowly, and check the wind. Make sure it is in your favor, and keep yourself in the shade where they will have a more difficult time placing you with their poor eyesight. This will keep them most relaxed and least disturbed while you spend time with them. Listening to them breathe, watching them sway. It’s a beautiful, peaceful and incredible moment to have, that shared space with two giants. . But what left me with such a twist in my stomach was putting a different person in my shoes. . A poor local short on cash with at least 5 hungry mouths to feed in a society where the unemployment rate is reaching 40%. In my shoes is a poacher from a rural community who has known the bush his whole life. He knows that rhino and how to track it. He knows how to sneak in undetected, with one goal in mind. . Horn. Per kilo, worth more than gold. . This is what we all need to understand. Why is that person turning to poaching as his solution? Why is that person turning to brutally killing another living being as his solution? Poaching is a socio-economic issue that runs deep, and we cannot make a dent in the poaching crisis without understanding the causes behind the killing. . . . . . #wildlifephotography #antipoaching #storytelling #naturephotography #photography #community #sonya6000 #photooftheday #sonyphotography #storyoftheday #awareness #rhino #exploretocreate #exploremore #wildlifeonearth #wildlife_seekers #naturelovers #nature_seekers #travelphotography #traveldiary #travelersnotebook #travelgram #conservation #savespecies
#thursdaythoughts Repost from @oceanic.global If we stop for a minute to think about what legacy we are leaving for the generations to come, maybe our actions would take on a new significance? #ourchoicesmatter #theoceanicstandard #rg @magentahyde ・・・ Kissing the reef and soaking in the afternoon sun, she never takes her eye off us. We float beside her eagerly observing the magic and humbled by her acceptance. She has come here to keep her baby safe from predators and yet apparently we are exempt from that category. Humans are surely the most dangerous creatures on earth and yet the whales keep trusting us and giving us opportunitys to be better. How many chances will we get? #savethewhales #discoverocean #oceana #oceanmagazine #oceanplanet #oceanicwildlifeconservation #oceanic .global #canon #aquatech_imagingsolutions #ig_shotz #progear #unlimitedtahiti #missionblue #keikoconservation #saltnomads #saveourseas #blueplanet #bucketlist #conservation #earthfocus #seashepherd #whaledreamer #lonelywhale #earthonlocation

| Elephant Rides In order to make elephants submit to elephant rides and other human interactions, they are taken from their mothers when babies and forced through a horrific training process known as ‘the crush’. It involves physical restraints, inflicting severe pain and withholding food and water, breaking the spirit of the animal so it submits to human instruction. There are some places you can find that do not do this. - (via @standforearth )
One of the best parts about what I do is meeting incredible people from all walks of life. The Masai - such vibrant people in every way. The bright colours they wear, amongst the neutral tones of the bush - an incredible sight to behold.
| Performing Dolphins Millions of tourists visit dolphinaria, but they are unaware of the cruelty and abuses the dolphins endure to perform in shows. Whilst it is banned in countries like the US, many performing dolphins around the world are still captured in the wild. They are often chased by high-speed boats before being hauled on board or caught in nets. For many, the stress is too much to take and they die during transportation. Whether wild caught or captive bred, dolphins in dolphinaria face a lifetime of suffering. They spend their entire lives in a space not much bigger than a swimming pool – completely unnatural and restrictive compared to their natural open sea environment. - (Via @standforearth )
I want these animals to be here forever. #elephants #elephantlove #conservation #monochrome #blackandwhite
Planning your 2018 summer vacation? Want to travel across the world and try new activities? Here are some activities to avoid that exploit or abuse animals (abducting them from the wild, teaching them through physical abuse & keeping them chained up) that you can tell your family and friends about. - | Animal Selfies Baby animals especially tigers and sloths are separated from their mothers at an early age so they can be used as photo props. They are handled and hugged by tourists and typically kept chained-up, or in small barren cages, or drugged to be still for photographs. - (via @standforearth )

The saiga can rightfully be called a "living fossil." It is one of the oldest representatives of mammoth fauna. Saiga lived side by side with mammoths, tarpans, woolly rhinoceroses, saber-toothed tigers and cave bears…and they're still here today! . Sadly, they are critically endangered. Illegal poaching, oil & gas exploration, and migrations being hindered by habitat loss have all contributed to the fastest decline ever recorded for a mammal species: a 95% population drop in 15 years.

One of the major reasons Australian Sea Lion populations have struggled to recover over the years is due to their slow reproductive rate. A female may only raise a single pup every 2 to 3 years compared to other sea lion species that will pup every year. This pup was only a few months old and was very happy to be reunited with mum as she returned from her fishing trip! #sealion #sealions #seal #sealbay #nationalpark #ecotourism #australia #australiagram #southaustralia #SA #kangarooisland #KI #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_perfection #wildlifephotography #conservation #conservationphotography #nikonaustralia #mynikonlife #animals #animalphotography #australianphotographer #naturepic #wildlifephotographer #ausgeo

C O N S E R V A T I O N C E N T E R Space for Giants is delighted to announce the opening of the Loisaba Conservation Center on Loisaba Conservancy! This project is a partnership with the @sandiegozoo , @loisaba_conservancy and @nature_africa. The vision for the center is to become a living space where visitors and community members alike can come and learn about what Loisaba Conservancy is trying to achieve in the landscape. “Loisaba Conservancy is a great example of what effective conservation strategies look like,” said Shamini Jayanathan, Director of Wildlife Law and Justice at Space for Giants. “The Conservation Center provides a window into the world of the conservancy, and allows visitors to gain an understanding of elephants, their behavior and what needs to be done to protect them. It also continues to solidify our strong relationship with the local community—because elephants’ futures are very bleak if the community is not invested in their protection.” #conservation #wildlife #Loisaba #Kenya #Africa #community

My grandma (center) and great Aunt (left) are the generation who tell me stories of our #tigerfamily ancestors. Childhood memories in the forest and on hunting trips are common in dinnertime conversation. Hunting is now illegal in India, which happened in 1972. But before that time, hunting was a way to appreciate the outdoors. Stories include villagers knocking on the door and begging my great-grandfather to help protect their village against a conflict tiger. At that time, killing a conflict tiger was honorable. My great-grandfather saved livelihoods and people's lives, just like mitigating conflict does today (although done in a different way). He was paraded around a village with garlands around his neck upon a successful hunt. I have endless fascination with the way things were when there were less people and more tigers. Hopefully, my grandma's memories of that time won't be forgotten. I am proud of the way my family's relationship with tigers has evolved. #familyfirst #heritage #conservation #bigcats #history #incredibleindia #forest #hunting #humanwildlifeconflict
Most of the visitors may not know that the quaint little town of Anegundi was the first capital of Vijayanagara kingdom. They did not start operating from Hampi till 1368. Even now, Anegundi is a beautiful village where some of the early monuments of the empire can be found. However, Gagan Mahal(in the picture) is probably a later monument and is a perfect example of the palace architecture from the Deccan. Until recently this was a Panchayat office. Now finally it has come under state archaeology department and is being restored by the Deccan Heritage Foundation. #anegundi #hampi #vijayanagara #karnataka #architecturephotography #architecture #palace #gaganmahal #deccanheritagefoundation #traveldiaries #travelphotography #heritageconservation #heritage #history #conservation #indiapictures #india #indiaphotosociety

#CareforWild would like to welcome two of our newest (and smallest!) arrivals! 🐿 These two baby squirrels were handed into the local vet after being found by a member of the public, and have since come under our care. Weighing in at around just 50 grams each when they arrived they are two of our smallest ever residents. They are eating a varied diet of seeds and fruit and are also getting some supervised exercise time out in the trees every day. Once these two little squirrels are bigger they will be released into the wild to enjoy the big open world!

Today we are highlighting the Yellow Bellied Sea Snake for Weird Animal Wednesday. These interesting creatures can typically be found in tropical ocean waters of at least 65 degrees. But, in 2015, 2016 and earlier this month some have been spotted off the California coast. Some speculate that these snakes are easily carried northward by ocean currents. However, others speculate that warming waters from climate change have expanded their hunting territory and movement around this new territory is aided by ocean currents. Some interesting facts about Yellow Bellied Sea Snakes: 1. This is the only sea snake that lives in the open ocean and feeds off small surface fish. 2. It survives by drinking rainwater that falls on the ocean’s surface. 3. It gives birth to live young right in open water. 4. This guy is poisonous, so be cautious!! Let’s #GETKRAKEN to learn more about ocean animals! If you guys have any ideas for #WeirdAnimalWednesday make sure to DM us and we’ll feature them and you! #seasnake #weirdanimal
