Happy World Giraffe Day! Experts estimate that only 100,000 Giraffes remain in the Wild. Giraffes are now listed as Vulnerable to extinction on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Giraffe numbers in Africa have plummeted by a staggering 40% over the last 30 years.

A lion’s roar can be heard up to five miles away. Roars are often used to find other lions, as well as to claim territory.  What kind of range do you think these cub’s roars have?  #letlionslive  #repost @singita_ ・・・ Mondays happen in the bush too 😴 #mondaymood #mondaymorning #lion #bigcats #bigcatsofinstagram #oursingita #wildlifeconservation #sustainabletourism
With its sea-green eyes this young leopard hasn’t seen much conflict in his life. The ears are intact and the nose remains unscarred. A beauty.

#repost @wildaid ・・・ This year for #worldoceansday, we’re raising funds to protect endangered #seaturtles #whales & #mantas. Every donation this week will be matched by a WildAid donor to support ranger patrols in Ecuador. Will you donate just $25 to help us reach our goal? www.donate.wildaid.org/worldoceansday2018 #poachingstealsfromusall #ujangiliunatuumizasote
What a win for community conservation! A recent aerial and ground survey conducted by NRT and the Ishaqbini Hirola Community Conservancy concluded that there has been a 140% increase in the number of critically endangered hirola in the community-run Ishaqbini sanctuary since it was established in 2012.

Did You Know that an adult Hippo has to eat 40kg of grass a day and can be found up to 15km away from water?  But it is within the water that they trully thrive. ............................................. #ilovetravel #instatravel #travelgram #travel #natgeotravel #pursuepretty #huffpostgram #globeshotz #tlpicks #mytinyatlas #travelblogger #upwardmagazine #ilovecolor #igtravel #ihavethisthingwithwalls  #livecolorfully #colorhunters #travelgram #bbctravel #myunicornlife #timeoutsociety #inspiremyinstagram #travelawesome #thehappynow #beautifuldestinations #travelstoke #road #scenery #discover_earthpix  #repost @wildfrontiersuganda ・・・ #poachingstealsfromusall
A much needed reminder from @andrewwegst « Just a reminder that ivory belongs on elephants and not on you. Cheers!! Tarangire, TZ » #repost @andrewwegst  #poachingstealsfromusall #ivoryisforelephants #elephants
Shoebills are quirky. But they are also endangered and heavily threatened by the illegal wildlife trade. People steal their eggs, or once they’ve hatched, and sell them as pets, having drastic effects on the wild populations. In Bangweulu, we have hired 10 local community “Shoebill Guards” who watch over their nests, making sure these chicks stand as good as a chance as possible to survive. Last year, our guards helped six chicks fledge, adding slowly but surely to the small but growing shoebill population. #goodnews #shoebills #bangweulu #zambia #africanparks 📷 @mana_meadows  #repost @africanparksnetwork
Our national parks won’t be much to visit without wildlife. Save the world’s splendours for future generations. They deserve to experience the same awe and excitement that we have the privilege of experiencing ourselves. #poachingstealsfromusall #forourchildren ・・・ Tembo, Amboseli National Park  #elephant #worthmorealive #amboseli #nature #photography #naturephotography #natgeokenya #africageographic #canon #canonkenya #whyilovekenya #magicalkenya #tembeakenya #vscokenya #vscoafrica #kenya #africa #igkenya #discoverkenya #wild #wildlife #wildlifephotography  #repost @magnificentkenya

Spotted hyenas often get a bad reputation as slinky scavengers stealing food where they can. But the reality is that hyenas are among the most successful of Africa's hunters - leopards and wild dogs. Initially thought to make a living by steeling food from lions and other predators, it's the opposite that is often the case. As a group, hyenas have upwards of a 30% success rate in making kills, which is high for predators. Compared to lions, at around 20%, hyenas do well to make their own meals. Having spent time watching wolf dens, I was surprised by how doting hyena siblings were on the younger pups. Careful, playful and firm when lessons were needed - but never overly aggressive - these hyenas taught me how they raise the next generation. I was pleasantly surprised, as I often am when confronted with how fellow social mammals rear their own.  #repost @ronan_donovan
“After gestating for 22 months, Elephant mothers nurse the baby for a further 3-4 years and are amongst the most devoted care-givers in the animal kingdom! This care-giving is further enhanced by a matriarchal herd of grand-mothers, aunts, cousin sisters all chipping in to help care for the runt. A thorough method that humans mimicked for thousands of years! :-)” - ‘Ele-Moms are the Best!’ taken by Vivek Sunder in aid of @maraelephantproject with a Canon 5D Mark III | Canon 600 mm F/4 | F/4 | 1/640 sec | 1250
#repost @schmid_chris ・・・ I never get tired of flying over the #okavango and seeing its remarkable beauty and wildlife. There is still so much life out there. Let's work to keep it that way. #earthday  Photographed in ‪#Botswana with #sonyalpha . . . . . #dontletthemdisappear #elephant #elephants #nopoaching #sudanforever #animallovers #animalpolis #natgeocreative #bbcearth #natgeo #animalsofinstagram #exclusive_animals #wildlifephoto #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotography #naturephoto #artofvisuals #awesome_earthpix #landscape_captures #igs_africa #afrique #super_africa #ig_africa #sonyimages #sonyphotogallery @sonyalpha @sgiambassadors @natgeocreative @wildaid @wildaidea @kenyawildlifeservice
