#Repost @christineeckstrom ・・・ Baby bonobos are transported to the Lola ya Bonobo sanctuary as traumatized orphans when their mothers are killed by poachers for bush meat. The infant bonobos cling to their dead mothers until they are removed and eventually sold for the pet trade—babies are too small to be valuable for meat. Lola ya Bonobo has an astonishing team of bonobo “mamas” who act as substitute mothers to the orphan babies. They nurture them like their own children and slowly rebuild their psychological strength. As infants, the baby bonobos become firmly attached to their adopted mamas, and will only trust people who are trusted by their mamas. I was privileged to spend time in the past few days with three remarkable bonobo mamas and their orphan babies, and my heart melted when one young bonobo, Bikoro, gave me his trust and crawled up into my arms. The emotion I felt is indescribable. We encourage you to lend your support to the people who are working to secure a future for bonobos in the wild—it’s a big challenge, but it’s possible. Follow us @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom as we embark on an expedition with @Ashley_Judd to document bonobos in the wild in the heart of the Congo—their only home in the world. @thephotosociety @LolaYaBonobo @bonobodotorg #bonobos #Congo #Africa #naturelovers #conservation * Chris Ekstrom @christineeckstrom Instagram 2 June 2018 * #ChristineEckstrom #Bonobo #Democratic #Republic #Congo #IPBES #UNEnvironment #UnitedNations #UN #Environment #WildAnimals #GlobalWarming #ClimateChange #ClimateAction #ActOnClimate #SaveOurPlanet
Credit to ##wild .hiking.map : Photo by ##FransLanting A river meandering through the lush lowland rainforests of Northern Borneo offers an open view of its riches. Hidden within are wonders of nature, including the largest flower in the world, which looks more like an alien life form straight out of the Avatar movie than the kind of flowers we are all familiar with. Rafflesias can be up to three feet across. They are outrageous. Go to ##FransLanting and ##ChristineEckstrom to see what they look like. ##ThePhotoSociety #Borneo #Rainforest #Sabah #Naturephotography _____________________ #wanderlusttribe #placestosee #wildnature #places_wow #natureisamazing #explorenature #placestogo #naturepolis #travellover #landscaper #travelersnotebook #exploresolo #enjoynature
"Lets appreciate and conserve nature for its exquisite beauty and power ... rather than preserving it to be in service of humans".

Photo by @FransLanting Moving as one, a herd of elephants made up of related females and their offspring and led by a matriarch is heading to water at the edge of a floodplain along the Chobe river in Botswana. Elephants can go without water for several days, but when they are thirsty you can sense their anticipation of the relief a flowing river poses for them after days of crunching on dry vegetation. You can see here that they are almost breaking into a run. Better not get between them and and the water.

Can you believe it? This lovely lady, the wildlife photographer Chris (@christineeckstrom ) travels the world, to capture the beauty of this planet. Right now she and her husband Frans Lanting (@franslanting ) are in Congo to film bonobos in the jungle and before that they were in Hawaï on top of the active volcanos. What an amazing work and life! Two months ago we met in Amsterdam and she told me I was an extraordinary beautiful cat, oh my...

A perfect evening with my manager Sabine van der Helm (@catvertise2015 ) and the famous wildlife photographer Frans Lanting (@franslanting ). He made me blush when he called me an amazing catactor, can you believe that? 📷: Christine Eckstrom (@christineeckstrom ), i love this woman! #abatutu #amsterdam #goudenfilm #dewildestad #wildamsterdam #sabinevanderhelm #catvertise #franslanting #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotography #christineeckstrom #catactor #catlife #compliments
Pisces. True love, joy, and happiness comes when we are together in #unity ! Love isn’t easy, it has to be #earned ! We earn it by investing our timeisup, #money , and energy. We don’t #jump ship in the difficult times, we find the light by learning the lesson(s) that needs to be learned. #WE don’t put each other down, we lift each other up. It’s okay to agree to disagree. We learn to compromise, but not on our values. We lead by example—walk the talk. Above all we have a responsibility to the #Light , and that is too, “Love Your Neighbor As Yourself!” (Its easy to say, but very challenging to do) @madonna #madonna .#gods .in.embryo #kathygriffin #mertandmarcus #gwenstefani #christineeckstrom #franslanting #andycohen #katieholmes #vanderkimberly #cynthianixon #sandrabernhard #parishilton #diplo #kinghenry #ricadotisci #jamesvanderbeek #sharasilverman #nikkiminaj #gb65 #artandcommerce +9
A magical march led by a meandering matriarch captured beautifully - like a painting - by @franslanting !

Video by #FransLanting and #ChristineEckstrom Male chimpanzees are highly competitive and often fight for dominance, but in the savanna woodlands of southern Senegal, where we tracked one group of chimps for six weeks on assignment for #NatGeo , we found a secret waterhole recently filled with rain. In the brutal summer heat it provided precious relief and squabbles were suspended for a temporary truce. This amazing behavior had never been captured before and it shows that even male chimps can get along when they want to. Images and stories from this project are also featured in our new book “Into Africa,” which is based on the NatGeo exhibition by the same name. #FransLanting for more unique chimp footage and learn what it was like to work with chimps in the wild. #natgeo #natgeocreative #thephotosociety #ape #chimp #wildlife #wildlifephotography #assignment #challenge #wild #waterhole #men #competition #cooperation #peace
