Utterly adorable!! What a wonderful set of photos by @nessytoafrica! These were taken in the north of Kruger near Punda Maria and its always a brilliant sight to see elephant calves playing! Of course the famous elephant trunk is one of nature’s great marvels. Operating as a fifth limb, the trunk consists of over 150,000 muscle fascicles - bundles of muscle tissue that give a moveable rigidity and provide considerable dexterity to the appendage. This allows the elephant to use the trunk for eating, drinking, touch and even as a snorkel when underwater, in addition to more traditional nasal skills such as olfaction (smelling) and making noise. The mix of power and skill an elephant is able to exhibit with its trunk is incredible - the trunk is powerful enough to tear large branches from trees while being skilled and subtle enough to crack open a peanut without damaging the nut inside! ______________________________________________ Thanks For Reading πŸ™πŸΌπŸ¦‹ FOLLOW πŸ‘‰ @africansafariconnection#africansafariconservation 🦏 ______________________________________________ #wildlife#africa#conservation#whyilovekenya#white#nature#naturelovers#naturephotography#wild#wildlife#photo#photooftheday#photography#photographer#instagood#instadaily#animal#animals#rare#lions

Repost from one of our favorite organizations @empowersafrica - From #wildlifeconservation day– one of our most celebrated days in the calendar at Empowers Africa HQ – but also #worldcheetahday , so what better time to raise awareness of the plight of the beautiful cats? Sadly, there are only around 7000 left in the wild, mainly due to shrinking habitat, illegal poaching, and conflict with human activities, all of which can be halted with a little awareness, education, and a good deal of action. The sad truth is that it’s not just cheetah numbers that are declining. Some of the world’s most loved and beautiful species are at risk of becoming extinct in our lifetime and that’s exactly where Wildlife Conservation Day comes in. Join us in spreading awareness of wildlife crime, and be part of the global solution ❀️ πŸ“Έ @jamessuter β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” 🦁 Follow us: @africansafariconservation Hashtag: #africansafariconnection β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #lion#conservation#nature#naturephotography#naturelovers#smile#lion#cat#cats#photography#photo#photooftheday#photographer#animal#animals#africa#african#hug#wild#wildlife#wildlifephotography

@kilifinewyear - πŸ’™ Proud of to be part of this team!!! This year we’re taking a hard line against single use plastics. Kilifi New Year is now a BYOC (bring your own cup) festival. If you want to drink most of the bottled beer on offer your cup/bottle/tankard/cow -horn/shoe/ the skull of your nemesis must be able to fit the whole 500ml in it as no glass bottles leave the bar. This means we can protect our little slice of heaven and can all walk around barefoot should you choose to free your feet without the worry of broken glass! We'll also have Beneath the Baobabs pint cups at the bar @200ksh. You’re welcome to return them to the bar each time you purchase anything and be blessed with a fresh one! #BYOC#BaobabaBliss#KilifiNYE#RefuseReduceReuse@kilifinewyear@distantrelativeskilifi

One of the main reasons why lions are disappearing is that their homes are being destroyed. Many endangered lions live in grassland and forest areas of Africa and India. As the human population increases, these lion habitats are destroyed in order to create more homes and buildings for people. πŸ“Έ @pierrejonqueres_photography β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” 🦁 Follow us: @africansafariconservation Hashtag: #africansafariconnection β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #lion#conservation#nature#naturephotography#naturelovers#smile#lion#cat#cats#photography#photo#photooftheday#photographer#animal#animals#africa#african#hug#wild#wildlife#wildlifephotography

Did you know that Hyena numbers are in decline due to habitat loss and persecution at the hands of humans. They are hunted by farmers as a result of assumed or actual threats to livestock including cattle and goats. Spotted hyenas have also been hunted for body parts to be used so called traditional medicine. πŸ“Έ: @michael_rads_ _____________________________________ ______ __ Thanks For Reading πŸ™πŸΌπŸ¦‹ πŸ‘‰ @africansafariconservation#africansafariconservation 🦏 _____________________________________________________

A young elephant calf plays under the watchful eye of its mother at Majete Wildl
A young elephant calf plays under the watchful eye of its mother at Majete Wildlife Reserve in Malawi. Over just 15 years, Majete has transformed from a once-empty forest with no employment or tourism and only a few remaining antelope, to a productive and flourishing haven for Africa's most iconic wildlife, generating revenue and benefits for local communities. Decades of lawlessness and poaching had seen the reserve’s wildlife almost entirely eradicated by the 1990s – elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, buffalo and many other species had all been hunted out completely. But, effective park management began and safety was re-established in 2003 when African Parks assumed management of Majete in partnership with the DNPW. Our Rangers secured the park and its remaining wildlife, and then we set in motion a series of wildlife reintroductions that included iconic species such as elephant, rhino and lions – and included a total of 2,900 animals from 14 different species. 200 elephants were brought back to the park between 2006 and 2009 and since their reintroduction, the population has more than doubled, and not one elephant has been lost to poaching thanks to incredible efforts of our rangers and strong community engagement. These elephants grew to over 400 and last year, helped make up the 500 Elephant translation we undertook, moving individuals from Majete and @liwonde_national_park to help repopulate Nkhotakota – a larger and safe park also in Malawi. As a result of our efforts, elephant calves like this are thriving in Majete along with other wildlife, fostering in a new generation of all things wild. πŸŽ₯ @wesley_hartmann , caption: @africanparksnetwork _____________________________________ ______ __ Thanks For Reading πŸ™πŸΌπŸ¦‹ FOLLOW πŸ‘‰ @africansafariconservation#africansafariconservation 🦏 _____________________________________ #wonderfull#capturethewild#africanamazing#igs_africa#africa#wildlife_perfection#global4nature#conservation#conservation#africa#poaching#extinction#nature#wildlife#wildlifephotography#natgeo

One of my favorite creatures. The Caracal Cat - The caracal is not endangered yet, but their population is lowering quickly. The main cause for the Caracals' threatened status is farmers. Many caracals are accused each day for hunting livestock. In 1981 1,800 Caracals were killed in Nambia for hunting livestock. Some, although very few, were poached for their fur in Central and West Africa. Diet: Carnivore Average Life Span: 18 years in the wild. Protection Status: Near Threatened. πŸ“Έ : @uli_wildlife _____________________________________ ______ __ Thanks For Reading πŸ™πŸΌπŸ¦‹ FOLLOW πŸ‘‰ @africansafariconnection#africansafariconservation 🦏 _____________________________________ #wonderfull#capturethewild#africanamazing@african_portraits#igs_africa@discoverwildlife#africa

Cheetahs once ranged across the entire African continent, except for the Congo Basin, and into Asia from the Arabian Peninsula to eastern India. Today, cheetahs are found in only 9% of their historic range and are extinct in their Asian range except for a small population in Iran of about 50 individuals. πŸ“Έ : @donalboyd _____________________________________ ______ __ Thanks For Reading πŸ™πŸΌπŸ¦‹ FOLLOW πŸ‘‰ @africansafariconservation#africansafariconservation 🦏 _____________________________________ #wonderfull#capturethewild#africanamazing@african_portraits#igs_africa@discoverwildlife#africa@marvelshots#wildlife_perfection#global4nature@bestnatureshot#conservation#conservation#africa#poaching#extinction#nature#wildlife#wildlifephotography#natgeo#turningthetide#instagood#animals#hope#survival#stoptheslaughter#makeadifference#donate#wildlifepreserve#animalrescue
