    Alessio Bariviera ( @Alessio Bariviera ) has his #poaching Indonesia: Andatu, pictured here, was born on June 23, 2012 at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Way Kambas. He’s the first Sumatran rhino born in captivity in 124 years. ---------------------------------------------------- “Are we better than animals? Aren’t the attributes that make humans unique better that those that make other animals unique? We know, for instance, that many animals are conscious, rational thinkers who communicate using a wide variety of complex signals. We know some of them have deep emotional lives that range from unfettered joy to devastating sadness. Some species can lie, make jokes, laugh, cry, console, cooperate. We know some species use and make tools (including fish and amphibians) and some engage in symbolic communication; dolphins and apes have even learned to “talk” with us using human-created symbols and signs. Certain animals make moral, compassionate choices to help or avoid pain to others. Of the more complex emotions and morality, very few traits separate us from other animals. We cannot know if other animals hold spiritual beliefs, but some of them have been observed acting in ways that suggest they posses a sense of awe and wonder. Humans may be able of the “most complex” thoughts, but research cautions that we honestly cannot say that our thoughts are always more complex or that our emotions are more deeply felt than those of other animals. So what does set us apart? ••• We are the only species that: Cooks food, makes and uses fire, engages in mass murder and wages global war, that has farting contests or tries to light farts, that uses condoms, that tattoos themselves, that uses modes of transportations other than our bodies, that uses computers and social networks, that has tried to leave the planet. And we are the only species whose lifestyle and reproductive capacity impacts and damages every ecosystem on our planet.” Rewilding Our Hearts, Marc Bekoff ---------------------------------------------------- #biodiversity#rhino#rhinohorn#indonesia#badak#iucnredlist#yabi#sumatranrhinosanctuary#animalrights#animalsarefamily#endangeredspecies#racingextinction#protectthewild#poaching#ecocide#wildlife Photo by | @alessio_bariviera

    Beau Davidson ( @Beau Davidson ) has his #poaching Thanks to radio host Michael Savage for sharing my "Lion Sleeps Tonight" video today. As you may know, the Trump administration has been reconsidering a law that allows animal trophies to be brought back to the USA. After I recorded a new version of the song with Jay Siegel and his Tokens (the song's hitmakers from 1961), I partnered with Dereck and Beverly Joubert with their National Geographic team in South Africa to create a spellbinding hybrid video that would bring awareness to this issue, with the help of Mike Stryker's Casting LIFE films, and producer Paul Kasofsky. After the Cecil the Lion tragedy, this issue came far more into the public eye, so we press on to ensure that these beautiful creatures are not illegally hunted and poached, but the issue is far greater than one law, as many parties are responsible and complicit in this. Let's keep the pressure up! @realdonaldtrump @natgeo @dereckjoubert #lions #elephants #conservation #trophyhunting #poaching #africa

    Kitty ( @Kitty ) has his #poaching @Regranned from @naturemama77 - #Repost @rhinosirf ・・・ Today, IRF is launching our 2017 Year-End Campaign. Our goal is to raise $625,000 by December 31st . If we raise that amount, we’ll be able to fund rhino security patrols in Zimbabwe and sniffer dogs to track poachers in Southern African rhino reserves. We’ll translocate Greater One-Horned rhinos to secure habitats in India, fund Javan and Sumatran Rhino Protection Units in Indonesia, and purchase laboratory equipment to help vets at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary expand its captive breeding program. We need your help -- please donate today. Visit the link in our bio. #TeamRhino

Founded in 2013 to protect the Olifants West Region of Balule Nature Reserve. The Black Mambas were invited to expand into other regions and now protect all boundaries of the 52,000ha Balule Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park.

    ( @ ) has his #poaching A home guard cooks his lunch at an interior chowki Bana in Sariska Tiger Reserve in Alwar, Rajasthan. Our forest frontline staff don't have it easy. They live in difficult terrains with limited resources to protect our sanctuaries and national parks, face challenges such as #climatechange, #poaching, #conflict and #extinction on a daily basis. Yet, what drives these custodians is their dedication to the job, their wild, consuming and unexplained connection to the soil. Hence, I chose to document these unsung heroes for the #rangerranger project.

    ( @ ) has his #poaching Helping to preserve giraffes AND their habitats! Had an unexpected opportunity with my DP to take part in a southern #whiterhino relocation at an undisclosed location here in #southafrica. It was brilliant to see the massive difference from sedating a giraffe vs a #rhino — despite the incredible strength they are known for (they can lift a truck/bakkie), rhinos are infinitely easier to deal with than a giraffe. It’s unfortunate, but conservations here must routinely saw off the rhino’s horn to prevent illegal poachers from attempting to kill them. #documentary #filmproduction #bts #behindthescenes #lastofthelongnecks #catchinggiants #iniosante #africa #travel #adventure #wildlife #trafficking #conservation #eco #environment #poaching #rhinohorn #chinesemedicine?

    ( @ ) has his #poaching Elephant poaching in Africa declined for the fifth year in a row with a significant drop in the illegal activity witnessed in East Africa. This is according to the latest data from the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), which reveals that in 2016, the overall downward trend of elephant poaching on the continent has continued. - At the same time, 2016 recorded the highest level of seizures of illegally traded ivory by weight since its trade was banned by CITES in 1989. - “Eastern Africa has been badly affected by the surge in poaching over the last 10 years, and has experienced an almost 50 per cent reduction in elephant population,” CITES secretary general John Scanlon said. - “There has, however, been a steady decline in poaching levels since its peak in 2011, and the analysis from 2016 concludes that overall poaching trends have now dropped to pre-2008 levels....This shows us what is possible through sustained and collective front-line enforcement and demand reduction efforts, coupled with strong political support,” he added. - photo & Source:http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/news/Conservation-elephant-poaching-decline-Africa-CITES/539546-4161886-mpifuoz/ - #obon #obonindonesia #indonesia #africa #news #elephant #poaching #decrease

    ( @ ) has his #poaching #Africa’s #elephants have long been vulnerable to hunters in pursuit of #ivory. In recent years, several of the continent’s terrorist groups have turned to #poaching as a source of funding: the border hopping Lord’s Resistance Army, the #Seleka of the #CentralAfricanRepublic, the #Janjaweed of #Sudan, and FDLR rebels inside Virunga National Park. In @brentstirton’s reportage “Ivory Wars,” he shows the toll of the #violence on the elephants, the surrounding #communities, and the brave but meager forces charged with protecting the creatures. Exhibited at #visapourlimage2016, here is an image from the series. The caption: Michael Oryem, a former Lord’s Resistance Army fighter, with two elephant tusks after he led authorities to their location in the Central African Republic. The LRA and other rebel groups have increasingly turned to ivory poaching as a source of funding.

    ( @ ) has his #poaching South African wildlife photographer Brent Stirton won the prestigious grand title with this visual of a shot and dehorned black rhino this year. Its upsetting and hard to swalllow especially with the possible ban on trophy hunting being lifted in the news this week. The jury selected Brent’s image as the most memorable and striking from almost 50,000 entries in the contest. In the words of Lewis Blackwell of the competition's jury "when an image hits us and assaults us, there must be a good reason. The austere simplicity forces us to witness the brutal, tragic and stupid waste of the work of a poacher. There is a horrible intimacy in photography: it invites us to explore our response and our responsibility as humans." // #WildLifePhotographer #WorldPressPhoto2017 #Poaching #Endangered #Exhibitions #Extinction #BrentStirton #Madrid #WildLifePhotographerOfTheYear2017 #BlackRhino #NationalHistoryMuseum #ProtectWildlife #NatGeo #Conservation #Photography #Winner
