Conservation is Controversial. Though @trophythefilm did not embody the perspective that I was expecting I have to say it did spark me to have some challenging thoughts! Preserving wildlife and wild places is not as easy as 1. 2. 3. But even through the gray space we cannot lose our humanity for nature. Though @trophythefilm brought attention to very different opinions than my own I still stand firm in the philosophy that conservation is not truly successful when trophy hunting is involved. The motto of; “if it pays, it stays” does not warrant farming wildlife.... Whether for harvesting rhino horn or breeding for the biggest trophies I choose to send my support elsewhere. Conservation and wildlife welfare can be achieved simultaneously!
@dswt -  This is one Panda who is native to Africa! We rescued Panda (who is named after the area where she was rescued, not the black and white bears to the east!) in July 2012, after the suspected poaching victim was spotted alone. Because of her age — she was about two years old — we decided to keep her at our Voi Reintegration Unit instead of bringing her to the Nursery. Panda gets, if possible, more delightful with each passing year; she’s always instigating games with the other orphans and giving the younger ones some extra love. • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #panda #pandadswt #voi #voireintegrationunit #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #worthmorealive #antipoaching #ivorybelongstoelephants #bekindtoelephants
from @dswt -  Baby elephants’ early days are filled with lots of stumbles and tumbles. After all, learning how to maneuver four legs and a trunk is no small task! Luckily, mum and a coterie of nannies are on-hand to help the little ones dust off their knees and give it another try. • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust / Freya Dowson #dswt #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #bekindtoelephants #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #worthmorealive #ivorybelongstoelephants
from @dswt -  Today marks Musiara’s one-year #rescueversary! On 14 January 2017, a film crew spotted a herd browsing in the Maasai Mara. They quickly realized that all was not how it should be, however: A tiny calf, who appeared to be a stranger to the other elephants, was struggling behind them. They alerted the DSWT, we initiated a rescue, and the rest is history. We’re still not sure how Musiara became separated from his mother, but he is now a very happy member of our Nursery herd and has no shortage of little friends. He is especially fond of Luggard; they spend much of their days together and always have each other’s backs. Musiara will even sleep with his head against the wall he shares with Luggard’s stockade, so they might be close even through the night! • Musiara will be in our care for many years to come, until he’s eventually ready to return to a life in the wild.

@dswt -  As human populations increase, space for wildlife is shrinking. Now, more than ever, places like the Kimana Sanctuary — 5,700 acres of land that serves as an essential corridor for the Amboseli elephants — are more important than ever. So, it gives us great pleasure to announce that in a partnership that benefits both the elephants and the community, we will be able to secure this essential wilderness! Working with the Big Life Foundation and the Kenya Wildlife Service, and thanks to generous donations from our supporters, we will cover the cost of the land leases in the Kimana Sanctuary. These leases will be paid to local communities, thus providing the landowners with vital income and incentivizing them to use the land for conservation instead of agricultural purposes. Wildlife wins too; now, elephants will be able to safely roam between the Amboseli ecosystem, the Chyulu Hills, and into Tsavo West National Park via this beautiful sanctuary.

Rhino meetup.  Just with a slight rumble and body language this meeting turned into a non event. But it was exciting to witness close up. MalaMala Game Reserve. 🦏🐘 Did anyone see “Trophy” on CNN, which aired last night, dealing with trophy hunting, extinction and poaching?  So sad to think these awesome animals could be no more. 🦏🐘 ********************************** #africanature #africa #southafricathroughmyeyes #southafrica #rhino #whiterhino #nature_wizards #malamala #sabisands #nikon #instadaily #mytinyatlas #safari #gamedrive #photoarena_nature #nature_sultans #extinction #racingextinction #respectthehorn #saynotopoaching #wildafrica #wildplanet @malamalagamereserve @johannes_d_welman_photo @aacsafari
Every year around my birthday I renew my adoption of Mwashoti with the @dswt 🐘❤️ It is the gift that keeps on giving. Please check out his triumphant story below, and consider adopting an orphaned elephant this year! I plan to visit one of the orphanage sites some day. #elephants #birthday #january #capricorn #loveislove #africa #wildlife #repost @dswt ・・・ Mwashoti’s current status is pure bliss! This brave little bull has come so far since he nearly lost his foot to a snare in 2015. Today, he’s taking strides towards a life in the wild at our Umani Springs Reintegration Unit — and he couldn’t be part of a more supportive family to help him along the way. Murera, who suffered a similarly traumatic leg injury at a young age, has appointed herself his stand-in mother. The rest of the herd is very sympathetic about his condition; they’ll either slow down so he doesn’t tire or pick routes that he can easily traverse. He’s even making wild friends; during a recent jaunt in the Kibwezi Forest, he encountered some tiny babies who were very eager to play with him! • To foster Mwashoti, click the link in our bio or visit: thedswt.org/mwashoti • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust / Freya Dowson #dswt #mwashoti #mwashotidswt #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #nairobi #dswtnursery #africa #murera #mureradswt #umanisprings #kibweziforest #umanispringsreintegrationunit #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #bekindtoelephants

regram @dswt Rapa, Pare, and Maramoja have been at our Ithumba Reintegration Unit for a month now, and we’re happy to report that the recent Nursery graduates are doing wonderfully in their new home. Every day is a new adventure for the trio: Shortly after their arrival, they were shocked and a little scared when they witnessed a large wild bull trumpeting. This isn’t something they had experienced in recent memory, and it sent them running off to the Keepers for comfort! • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust  #dswt #rapa #rapadswt #pare #paredswt #maramoja #maramojadswt #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #africa #tsavo #tsavonationalpark #ithumba #ithumbareintegrationunit #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #dswtat40 #worthmorealive #bekindtoelephants

Who else felt like this elephant this morning? 🐘🐘🐘 #agesapparel 📷@dswt It’s not uncommon for the orphans in our Nursery herd to get tuckered out (after all, exploring and playing all day can be exhausting) and take a midday nap. Sometimes, the sleepy feeling is infectious: When Maktao recently settled down for some shut-eye, Malkia decided to stand guard over him so the little calf could slumber undisturbed. However, it wasn’t long before the older girl was napping too! The Keepers let them both sleep in peace, only waking them up when it was time for their afternoon milk feed. 📷@dswt • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust / Freya Dowson

Cheetahs can reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, but this trio only has rest on the mind! Shockingly, with just 7,100 left in the wild, the species is dangerously close to extinction. The work of our DSWT Aerial Surveillance Unit, which monitors Kenya’s wildlife populations to make sure they’re healthy and protected, is crucial to help cheetahs and other threatened creatures.
