I took these photos a few months ago while snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. It was a strange feeling finally visiting a place that has been at the forefront of global climate change conversations for so long. I saw some of the most colorful underwater scenes I have ever experienced, but I was also oddly disappointed? I wanted to be swimming through a rainbow of coral, but seeing patches of dull coral was all too real. It felt as though I was swimming through the beginnings of a ghost town. . Growing up, my parents made a point of teaching me the importance of conservation, but many people aren’t brought up with the same values. We live in a world now where so many of us have lost sight of what’s really important, and that’s the well being of this planet earth that houses all of us. Caring about the environment is certainly a feature of socioeconomic privilege. It’s hard to give a shit about your impact on the environment when you’re struggling to simply live life. But that doesn’t mean that talking about a greener future should be forgotten to other important issues. Those of us with the privilege to speak out and make a difference, need to more than ever. We are stewards of this planet and have the power to destroy it. That’s a horrifying thought. . I have a deep passion for wildlife and I want to do my part to inspire a love for our planet and the awesome creatures that live on it. I want to be the inspiration that my parents were to me for even one person. Education is always the first step, and my goal from this point on is to create ART AS ACTIVISM that makes you want to learn more and do more. We need to shift our focus from celebrities, reality tv, twitter battles and fidget spinners to birds, fish, trees, the cleanliness of our oceans and the safety of our drinking water. I want my art to remind you of the beauty in nature, because I think that so many of us have forgotten. So go snorkel the reef and take in the colors that are left, go

RIP BEAUTIFUL BOY . . It is wIth great sadness, we are saying goodbye to MULDER, one of our oldest cheetahs at AfriCat.  For a while we observed Mulder’s condition with concern. He started eating less and lost weight over the last couple of weeks and additionally had to struggle with an abscess below his left eye and a sore front leg. Since last Saturday his condition deteriorated so rapidly that we decided, with a heavy heart, to end his suffering. A subsequent post mortem examination revealed a severe inflammation of the stomach lining as well as sub-acute kidney failure, a clinical condition that often is found in captive cheetahs. . . To read his full story, please find link in our bio! . . . #africat #namibia #bigcatconservation
Here, six African elephants drink from a man-made water hole at The Ark Lodge, Aberdare National Park, Kenya 🐘 # African Elephants (Loxodonta africana) consume a huge amount of water per day; roughly around 230 litres. They use their trunk to squirt water into their mouth, as much as 4.5 litres at one time. # #aberdares #aberdarenationalpark #elephant #loxodontaafricana #eastafricanwildlife #kenya #nature #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #conservation #wildlifephotography #africanwildlife #africa #eastafrica #animal #nationalparks #conservation #education #instanature #africanlandscape #zoology #worthmorealive

@africanwildlifevets need to relocate two lionesses from Limpopo Province to uMkhuze Game Reserve in Kwa-Zulu Natal. • • • Genetic diversity is one of the most important factors to consider when ensuring species are conserved. It is essential in small reserves where natural migration and emigration are not possible due to fences. The purpose of this relocation of lionesses into uMkhuze Game Reserve is to add genetic diversity to the current population. • • Read more about relocation for conservation at: http://www.africanwildlifevets.org/conservation-operations/capture-for-relocation/ • • • #wildlifeconservation #wildliferelocation #limpopoprovince #maputaland #umkhuzegamereserve #kwazulunatalprovince #southafrica #lionesses #africanwildlifevets #donate #support #givengain #ecology #geneticdiversity #lions #population #conservingspecies #naturalmigration ##natureconservation #instagramsa #repostapp

Zebra, Damaraland, Namibia.
