Taking time this evening to reflect on my time spent in South Africa🇿🇦 In 2016 I traveled with the TCU Rhino Initiative, and the experience left an unforgettable impression on me! 💜 At this moment another group of passionate students are currently in South Africa doing their part to save the magnificent species 🦏 I can’t believe it’s been three years since the trip (I think about it daily) and I still haven’t finalized edits to the 3,000+ photos I took either. Each time I look through my photos, my love for wild life grows. 🐆🦓🐘🦒 I hope to return soon! ✈️ #tcu #rhino #tcurhino #tcurhinoinitiative #wildlifephotography #savetherhino #savetherhinos #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #chubbyunicorns #savethechubbyunicorns #southafrica #southafricawildlife
Let me tell you a tale of a tiger’s tail. Almost a meter long, the tail can help the tiger balance while chasing a prey. They use their tails like sprinklers on hot summer days to keep their body cool. Tigers also use the tail to mark their territory with liquid. This marking can last for as long as 40 days. The smell can encourage (for mating) or discourage (to avoid conflict) another tiger to enter that territory. Tigers have various methods of communication. Most obvious one is the different sounds a tiger makes (like purr, growl, hiss etc.) But even the tail helps them to communicate. A droopy tail means relaxed tiger. Raising the tail and waving gently means friendliness. Twitching the tail can mean aggression. Look at subadult tiger's tail in the pic.. I think he is showing playfulness, what do you think what his tail is saying? . . . . #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #respectanimals #loveanimal #saveanimals #ngtindia #naturephotography #nature #naturelover #throughourlenses #nikonindiaofficial #tripadvisor #tripotocommunity #yourshotphotographer #natgeoyourshot #lovenature #savenature #natureconservation #savetheplanet #conservation #beyondbystander #respectnature #lpmi #discoveryindia #incredibleindia #indiatourism #tiger #stripedbeauty @ncf.india @conservationorg @cntravellerindia @bbcearth @the_nature_conservancy @natgeotravellerindia @sonybbcearth @natures @wwfindia @indian_wildlifes @bigcatsdiary @featured_wildlife @animalplanetindia @wildgeography @cnncreate @wildlifeconservationco @wildlifeconservationproject @wildnetorg @global_wildlife_conservation @wildwoyages
🎥 repost by @wildlifetrustofindia @samshul_ali @vivek4wild Imagine coming home and finding a wild tiger in your bed 🐅 This is what happened in a house in Harmouti, Kohora (a region of Assam, India close to the famous Kaziranga National Park). The region has been devastated by floods in the last few weeks and animals have moved outside of the boundaries of the park (as so much of the park is submerged). The tiger crossed a national highway, jumped over a wall and entered the small house. A brave team from @wildlifetrustofindia @action4ifaw and the local forest department managed to tranquillise the tiger after dark and moved it back to the forest. This tiger is just one face of the current crisis in the region. More than 12 million people are being hit by the floods in Assam (and 5 million kids!). Is this another example of extreme weather or the ever growing threat of a changing climate? 🐆🦁 . . . . . #assamfloods #assam #india #flood #tiger #bigcatrescue #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #tigers #tiger #bigcat #catsofinstagram #wild #indian #assamese #kaziranga
When life hits the fan but Murphy's law isn't done with you yet! 😅 . It's not so bad. The last phase of my move has begun and a lot is happening all at the same time. The studio will be off and on closed between today and August 15th. So far we've managed to stay on track amd a little ahead of schedule to compensate for any upcoming lost time. . This fellow was going incredibly well till I realized one eye was supposed to be opalescence blind.... Woops! Eye surgury coming up 🤐 #crueltyfree #animalheaddress #animalfriendly #animalfriendlyheaddress #animalheaddress #animaltrophy #blackbear #bear #bearhood #viking #larp #cosplay #druid #celtic #norse #mythology #warrior #bearconservation #wildlifeconservation #compassion #easternwindstudio #theater #reproductiontaxidermy #alternativetaxidermy #renactment #roman #standardbearer
Once upon a time in Mangku Sakti waterfall. Sajang, Lombok Timur Indonesia. Air terjun mengalir menghijau bumi dilintasi. Lombok, wet and dry earth. Warm and friendly people. Nun jauh disana di lembah tanah airku. Melambai sekuntum bunga. Membisik hatiku mengapa di rantau. *Lagu Lambaian bunga, S. Effendi.

The NZ dolphin is the smallest dolphin of the world and endemic to New Zealand, which means you cannot find it anywhere else. There are two sub-species, the Māui and the Hector's dolphin, that both live isolated from each other. Unfortunately, the little fellas are threatened by human activities that happen in their habitats and which influence the mating success as well as the overall survival of individuals. Tourism activities play a minor role, however, #marinewildlifetourism should never add stress to a population, especially when it's already struggling. Until early August, Kiwis may have a say when it comes to the future of this marine species that is so important for the nation Aotearoa. Every five years, the Threat Management Plan from #docgovtnz and #fisheriesnz for this species is reviewed to assess the effectiveness of suggested implementation to protect the animals. Head to the friends of @docgovtnz , @forestandbird @greenpeacenz @nzwhaledolphin , @akaroadolphins , @blackphins @blackcatcruises and @ecoseaker for more information 🐬🐬🐬 • • • • • • #nzdolphins #hectorsdolphins #mauidolphin #newzealand #newzealandwildlife #natureconservation #conservationthrougheducation #conservation #informationdesign #infographic #dolphin #dolphins #wildlifeconservation #takeaction #cetaceanconservation #dolphinwatching #communicationdesign #naturelovers #fishing #gillnet #protectwhatyoulove #threatmanagementplan #threatenedspecies #extinctionisforever #NZMustDo

OH, GIVE ME A HOME WHERE THE BUFFALO ROAM… AMERICAN BISON (Bison bison) IUCN Status: Near threatened In 2017, the Yellowstone bison population was approximately 4,800 individuals; their population grows by between 10-17% each year. Due to public conflicts associated with the risk of disease transmission of brucellosis from bison to cattle, the state of Montana sued the National Park Service to decrease the population to limit the movements of bison outside the park. The settlement of this 1995 lawsuit required that bison be maintained around a target population of 3,000 individuals. As a result, culling occurs every year (1,171 were culled in 2017). The NPS is working with federal, state, and tribal partners to develop a quarantine program to reduce the culling of this iconic species. There has never been a single recorded case of a bison transmitting brucellosis to a cow, ever. However, there are many occasions of brucellosis being transmitted to cows from elk.
