Happy #WorldHippoDay With 115,000-130,000 hippos in the world, they are significantly rarer than the African elephant. The hippo’s global population fell during the late 1990s and early 2000s, but has since plateaued. They remain imperiled by ongoing habitat loss and degradation as well as poaching for their meat and ivory — their teeth.

It’s always hard keeping up with #paintedwolves: Unlike lions and leopards, these canines are constantly moving across a huge territory. And unfortunately, habitat loss is one of the biggest reasons they’ve become locally extinct in many parts of the African continent. Luangwa in Zambia is one of the last landscapes where you have a strong chance of seeing them.

On a mission… I’ll never forget the time spent with this female cheetah and her fluffy cub in the Serengeti. We spent many days following her and gradually earned her trust until the point that she was leaving her cub next to our car each time she was going to hunt. Wildlife photography and filmmaking is all about mutual respect between the animal and you. And you always get rewarded if you are patient and passionate. Unfortunately I see too many photographers trying to push the contact in order to get a shot, breaking the trust of the animal and losing the natural behavior. Is it really rewarding?
