African Elephant in acrylic, painted at the beginning of last year, but alas from a photograph, not from sitting opposite the real thing. 😕 #acrylic #acrylics #acrylicpainting ##acrylicpaintings #art #ameteurart #ameteurpainting #arty #artypants #artfarty #wildlifepaintings #elephant #savetheelephants #africa #africanelephant #jumbo #dumbo #river #tusks
#Repost @elephantsrhinospeople with @get_repost ・・・ An imperative underpinning ERP’s strategy is the establishment and protection of new safe havens for #elephants and #rhinos , and the safeguarding of existing conservation land, which is under dreadful pressure for myriad reasons, and may be forever lost to conservation, absent suitable interventions by ERP and others. Establishment of ecological corridors between existing, fenced conservation areas in South Africa, is a fundamental pillar of the ERP land-protection and expansion proposition. Such, corridors will allow for historic elephant migratory routes to be re-opened and mitigate the ameliorate the effect of elephant population growth in existing, fenced reserves. These images show the ERP team viewing the landscape of the Samara Game Reserve. At ERP, the life of every elephant and rhino matters.

@the_pickled_dragon 's OC Durge and the old crone. I loved his short story so much, I just had to draw something about it, and that's one of the many scenes that I stuck on~ Also, first time drawing orcs! What do you think? I'm pretty nervous about Durge but I think I made the crone as ugly and gross as I imagined her #picoftheday #drawing #draw #artist #art #dark #blackandwhite #pencil #oc #intense #shading #lightanddark #orcs #tusks #muscles #uglybitch #inspired #whatdoyouthink

This image gives us an insight on a range on the most common animals many people consume. The hierarchy shows us what is halal and haram, each category under those topic and lastly some examples. Given that this image is simple we are still able to understand in depth what animals we can consume and which animals we cannot

Every soul searches for love and comfort. The power of touch and connection is something that resides in all living things. Be conscious of the choices you make and how it might effect the world around you. . . . . #pig #piglet #minipig #beachpig #potbellypig #snout #oink #hog #pigs #piggy #pigsaspets #pigsofinstagram #mansbestfriend #tusks #instapets #cutepets #manhattanbeach #california #sundayfunday #petstagram #happypet #spoiled #elportopig #elporto #southbay #love #compassion #friendsnotfood #vegan #vegans

Just like humans are either left or right handed, so do elephants also prefer to use either a left or right tusk. For this reason, one can usually find the frequently used tusk warn down and significantly shorter than the other.
Wow! Hippos and crocs occupy the same riverine habitats and typically enjoy a peaceful, symbiotic relationship - although as this stunning shot shows, they sometimes come to blows too! The benefits of co-existing are that the hippo are not good swimmers and instead scurry along the riverbed, kicking up small fish and amphibians that the crocodiles can then grab and eat. In return, the crocodiles offer the hippos an additional layer of protection from predators. Yet despite being grazers, hippos are highly aggressive animals that are very capable of looking after themselves - those huge canine tusks will tear through the hide of even a croc if the two species resort to fighting in their close-quarters relationship. .

Happy World Rhino Day! Earlier this week, team members Georgia and Ellie embarked on a trip to London to follow Tusk.org's Rhino Trail. Along the route, they met Marilyn; hear what she had to say about rhinos by watching this video... 🦏 Also, check out our latest blog to find out more about the plight of the rhino: https://bit.ly/2I6NPxb #worldrhinoday #rhino #thegreatprojects

We recently moved Charles and Lumpy from an almost certain death in Dinokeng Game reserve, to a safe haven in Zinave, in Southern Mozambique. Here, under the watchful eye of David Allen, Charles is being hoisted in the most gentle fashion practical when you are moving an elephant, onto his truck. In light of the recent execution at Dinokeng of Hot Stuff, Lumpy and Charles’ move from Dinokeng happened not a minute too soon. They now don’t leave each other’s sides in the lush expanses of Zinave, and frequently visit a resident herd of female elephants. Look out for our forthcoming video posting on Lumpy and Charles in Zinave. Our ERP guardians vigilantly monitor them around the clock, through our satellite tracking systems. At ERP, the life of every elephant and rhino matters. @peaceparks @milburndereck @nbcsandiego @dagmarnbcsd #ERPRedux #ERP #elephantsrhinospeople #povertyalleviationthroughconservation #savetheelephants #bekindtoelephants #worthmorealive #mozambique #culling #relocation #translocation #elephants #elephant #emotion #heartfelt #tusks #elephantlove #conservation #nature #africa #Charles #Lumpy

The most important animal of all in Vanuatu. Pigs are a mainstay of ceremonies and rituals. They are a cultural currency in Vanuatu.

Forays into Jewelry Design..... So many broken saws and conquering this learning curve with eclectic deformed animal pins :) The Common Warthog aka Phacochoerus africanus: Found in the grasslands, savanna and woodlands in sub-Saharan Africa. Fun Fact: Tusks used for combat not for digging & they chill together in groups called sounders. #jewelry #design #saw #riveting #eclectic #animal #warthog #commonwarthog #phacochoerusafricanus #Africa #tusks #sounders #brass #copper #sketch #metalsmithing #hammering #polishing #mandible #cranium #skull #art #artist #pins #necklace #sketchbook #sketchdesign

No desistas... No te vayas del camino... Estas aprendiendo en el andar, así parezca platónico y complejo, se que triunfarás... No desistas... Esos pasos que hoy ves como insignificantes, serán tu siembra y tu cosechar... No desistas, porque aunque el cambio ha sido prolongado, tu madurez es evidente y te has transformado... No creas que has fracasado porque no has llegado donde planeaste, hoy eres más grande y te liberaste... No desistas, porque tu molde es distinto, lo crearás y lo destruirás en libertad tu mismo ... No desistas porque ya no te pareces aquel que inició este camino... ¿Cómo pretendes parecerte a quién quería vivir distinto ? No desistas por miedos a un futuro incierto ...

We relocate elephants only when their lives are in imminent danger from hunters or culling, and when all other non-lethal alternatives have been thoroughly exhausted. While there are risks to the elephants in a translocation, they typically adjust quickly and well. We move only complete family units, based on careful scouting and monitoring, beforehand. We refuse to break up elephant families, since they seemingly have a more advanced sense and appreciation of family, than do most human beings. Relocation activity doesn’t only affect the elephants. People that witness the jaw-slacking spectacle are typically forever changed, at least insofar as their feelings about elephants are concerned. Our ERP field workers find the relocations to be stressful, deeply traumatic and oftentimes gut-wrenching. But, they know that they are saving the lives of these elephants. Relocations involve mind-bending complexity and logistical challenges, but Dereck Milburn and his team have the experience and skills to run relocations with the precision of a Swiss watch. At ERP, the life of every elephant and rhino matters. @milburndereck @nbcsandiego @dagmarnbcsd @peaceparks #ERPRedux #ERP #elephantsrhinospeople #povertyalleviationthroughconservation #savetheelephants #bekindtoelephants #worthmorealive #mozambique #culling #relocation #translocation #elephants #elephant #emotion #heartfelt #tusks #elephantlove #conservation #nature #africa
Thanks to some good friends I ended up with this cool #skull . Pretty ugly and stinky to start out with, but turned out pretty cool. Now the question is how to mount it. #hog #pig #tusks #white #awesome

Warming up for Inktober. I’m planning to draw characters and vignettes from children’s literature. Any suggestions for stories I should brush up on before October (I love excuses to read!) . . . #inktober #kidlitart #beast #nibpen #blackandwhite #boar #tusks
Three major exporters illegally smuggling the greatest amount of ivory out of Africa have likely been exposed, thanks to researchers who genetically matched elephant tusks from large ivory seizures and compared this information to details including the ivory’s shipping port of export. Their work reveals how tusks from the same elephant are often shipped by the same trafficker in separate shipments. ⠀ ⠀ The researchers hope the data presented in their paper can lead to a more direct way to police this illegal trade, and further, that it can help strengthen ongoing cases against particular cartels by tying their operators to large ivory seizures.⠀ ⠀ Image credit: Karl Ammann⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #poaching #ivory #Africa #elephant #genetics #export #tusks #illegal #trade #wildlife
