Rainbow road 🌈 double tap for perfect ♥️ placement 👌 By far my most viral and asked about photo that simply refuses to ever stop. It has made it on the news, gained me at least 15,000 followers, been featured on advertisements and in magazines, sold countless prints and still gets reposted every single day somewhere on the internet, years later. To think, I almost didn’t even post it 😂 do you think it’s worth the attention it has received? 🤷♂️
Meet my new friend Boris 🐘 Boris is a refugee adult male Sumatran Elephant that was rescued from certain death as his home forests were totally decimated by the logging industry. Freed from government camps with less than ideal conditions, Boris and his other elephant friends at @elephantsbali are now kept in conditions that wildlife activists and conservationists alike deem the gold standard of how captive elephants should be kept, if they must. Free from starvation, discomfort and disease, these gentle giants now have a happy and healthy place to call home even though their true home in the wild is no longer possible for them to survive in. I was stoked to say the least to be able get to know the sweet guy in a very personal setting as we relaxed together in the jungles of Bali for a bit as he munched down on some fresh greens and I admired his beastly beauty and majestic demeanor.
