Birthdays mean nothing to elephants, but they mean a lot to those of us who are dedicated to protecting them. Each year of life is another year of success, and this year marks a big milestone for one big elephant. Tim, one of Amboseli’s largest and best-known elephants, is turning 50. Click the link in our Bio to read more about how remarkable it is that Tim has gotten to this age, given that he faces just about every threat possible to his species. S

#regram title="@lewa_wildlife" href="/lewa_wildlife" class="media-footer__link">@lewa_wildlife ・・・ There are plenty of Grevy’s zebra foals on Lewa at the moment. While predation has in the past limited the number of foals surviving to adulthood, we are pleased to see the survival rate increase in the past 2 years. There are approximately only 2,800 Grevy’s zebras left in the world, and over 90% are found here in Kenya. 📷- @yswildlifephotography#lewawildlifeconservancy#boranaconservancy#zebras#stripes#beautiful#nature#whyilovekenya#animals#wildlife#lewasafaricamp#kifaruhouse#elewanamoments#luxurytravel#ecotravel

Did you know...? The Elephant's feet are padded and wide, with 5 toes at the front plus a backward facing 'pre-digit' to help distribute weight effectively. They act as a shock absorber, enabling silent movement. #elewanamoments#elephentpeppercamp#safari#wildlife#nature#iganimals#animals#travel#travelgram

Celebrating love today and everyday- Happy Valentine’s Day! There’s something romantic about being in the bush and on safari, whatever time of year you’re there.

There’s also endless reminders to be grateful for the bounty of nature and its magnificence in those gorgeous settings. So today, we celebrate you all as well as our Earth and reaffirm to continue to do our best to keep our guests, our communities, our teams and our planet feeling loved, always. #valentinesday#loveisintheair#love#elewanamoments#loveourplanet#conservation#nature#earth

Photographic evidence of black panthers has been extremely rare in the last few
Photographic evidence of black panthers has been extremely rare in the last few decades, despite numerous reported sightings. Researchers from the San Diego Zoo have been using camera traps at @Loisaba_Conservancy and neighbouring properties in order to understand population dynamics of leopards, and the mechanisms that drive human-wildlife conflict to assess the efficacy of management decisions aimed at mitigating conflict. We are very excited to hear that these camera traps have captured rare footage of melanistic leopards, otherwise known as black panthers! Melanism is the result of a gene that causes a surplus of pigment in the skin or hair of an animal so that it appears black. 📸@willbl#sandiegozoo#loisaba#landconnectedlifeprotected#wildlife#nature#conservation#sighting#natgeo#blackpanther#wakanda#therealwakanda#kenya#igkenya#travel#safari#travelstoke#travelgram#instatravel#igafrica#research#luxurytravel#ecotravel#elewanamoments

After nearly a year of no sightings, staff at the Elewana #LoisabaStarBeds were excited to hear the unique calls of a pack of wild dogs! Before hunts, wild dogs often engage in a ‘greeting ceremony’, where many sounds are produced by the dogs including whimpers, whines and high pitched twitters, which are unique and easy to identify. INTERESTING FACT: Wild dogs give birth to the largest litters of any other dog species, usually between seven and 10 pups but they can number up to 20.

You may know that #Tarangire is paradise for elephant lovers. But did you know that Tarangire and the surrounding Wildlife Management Areas have their own migration? During the green season, when the rivers swell and become a source of water, the herds of elephants make their way into the #Randilen Wildlife Management Area along with many other animals seeking out lush green pastures. #wildlife#wildlifephotography#safari#tanzania#nature#travel#travelgram#conservation#luxurytravel#luxuryhotel#earthwonders#elewanamoments

#Regram@amivitale Photo by @amivitale. ・・・ Loyanae Lonolngiro herds livestock outside of the enclosure where the animals sleep at night with a lion alarm outfitted by @lionlandscapes at @loisaba_conservancy in Laikipia, northern Kenya. In Laikipia, livestock owners have found and are finding ways to coexist with lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs. They are amazing for doing this. We owe them enormous gratitude for being so tolerant in the face of threats to their livelihoods and even their lives. @lionlandscapes works to support these livestock owners wherever possible. Among other undertakings, @lionlandscapes Rangers are trained to visit livestock enclosures, spot practices that could make livestock vulnerable to lion attacks and help livestock owners better guard their livestock from lions. To learn more, follow @lionlandscapes, @loisaba_conservancy, @nature_africa, @peregrinefund and @tusk_org who are working together to promote coexistence between humans and lions for the benefit of people and nature in northern Kenya.

#Regram@lewa_wildlife ・・・ Mawingu, the female semi-blind black rhino, was found dead today morning after falling from a steep slope and breaking her neck. Mawingu, born semi-blind, was moved to Lewa from Lake Nakuru National Park years ago. For the many years she lived on Lewa, she managed to traverse the Conservancy easily despite her disability. She was 35 at the time of her death, which constitutes a 'full life' for black rhino. During her lifetime, Mawingu gave birth to 9 calves. Some were lost to predators as she was unable to protect and care for them, and others, such as the famous Elvis, Lola and Kitui, were handraised by keepers to ensure their survival. The Lewa-Borana Landscape is home to more than 170 black and white rhinos, constituting 14% of Kenya's rhino population. Mawingu lived a full life, which is how it should be for all rhinos. #Rhinos#Nature#Animals#LewaWildlifeConservancy#BoranaConservancy#KenyaWildlifeService#Kenya

#Regram@amivitale ・・・ A lion looks up from his freshly caught wild prey at @loisaba_conservancy in Laikipia, northern Kenya. Large wide ranging carnivores like lions are normally one of the first mammal species to be lost in areas shared with people and livestock. Their presence in a human dominated landscape like this one is a symbol of a successful coexistence. Apex predators like lions play a vital role in maintaining a healthy balance in an ecosystem, impacting everything below them, from soil nutrients and disease, to plant, prey and scavenger populations. If lions are doing well then the entire ecosystem is likely doing well. In the long term, that means the ecosystem will be better able to support the people that also rely on it. To learn more, follow @lionlandscapes, @loisaba_conservancy, @nature_africa, @peregrinefund and @tusk_org who are working together to promote coexistence between humans and lions for the benefit of people and nature in northern Kenya. Lion conservation is facing huge challenges and no one organisation can solve them alone. Vital partnerships like these make the huge undertaking of saving these magnificent creatures possible.
