It's time to connect children to the environment!
Environmental education is an integral part of the Wildlife Works REDD+ awareness program. This is Kajire Primary School and Kajire Girls Secondary School, located in one of Wildlife Works project areas. The area is similar to many other rural places where locals are dependent on charcoal production, bush meat poaching and unsustainable agricultural methods to meet their survival.
We believe that by teaching the younger generation about the importance of addressing environmental challenges and taking care of wildlife, we help shape their attitude from a very young age. (Swipe for more )

One of my favorite images! of a female leopard in a tree at night under the stars. She has an impala in the tree that she is feeding on. She is waiting for an opening so she can jump down amongst 6 hyenas scattered around the base of the tree - hoping she will drop some of the impala - but she wants to be sure - that she does not end up as dinner either!
There are nine sub-species of leopards on earth, occurring from the southern tip of South Africa's Cape mountains to the island of Java in southeast Asia. The leopard can live in true deserts, tropical forests and even in the Russian tundra where it drops to below 10 degrees celsius! The biggest threats facing leopards in Africa include the illegal skin trade, wire snare poaching and human-leopard conflict. This was shot while on assignment for National Geographic Magazine (Dec 2015 issue) with. National Geographic launched the Big Cats Initiative to raise awareness and implement conservation action for big cats. Please visit CauseAnUproar.org to find out more about National Geographic's innovative solutions like Build a Boma, anti-poaching and learning about the ecology of these incredible animals!

It was great to catch up with @andbeyondtravel and @greatplainsconservation at the recent @weareafricatravel event, and learn about their translocation work with Rhinos Without Borders; their aim is to move 100 threatened rhinos from South Africa to the relative safe haven of Botswana.

One of the toughest bans on ivory sales in the world is a step closer to coming into force in the UK after the introduction of the Ivory Bill.
The bill covers ivory items of all ages, not only those produced after a certain date which has been China’s loop hole for too long! The maximum penalty for breaching the ban will be an unlimited fine or up to five years in jail. Which is still seen to be too light. Let’s get the rest of the world to pull their fingers out also! 🐘♥️🌍 #ivoryban#ivoryfree#ivoryfreecanada#worthmorealive#extinctionisforever#elephants#conservation#getonboard
In addition to poaching, habitat loss and conflict with human populations are key threats facing elephant populations in Africa. The Sagalla community, one of Wildlife Works’ community locations, can attest to this predicament because they seasonally come into conflict with elephants. Many Sagalla farms are situated at the border of the wildlife corridor, making it easy for the wildlife to cross over, and raid their crops.
How is Wildlife Works helping to resolve this situation? During times of conflict, our brave rangers work late at night and into the early hours of the morning to drive elephants out of community farms. Wildlife Works rangers team up with Kenya Wildlife Service rangers to have a presence on the farms, especially at night. Read more in this inspiring blog, link in bio 👌🏾

Seen here is a video that proves the mind blowing natural coexistence between leopards and 21 million humans in Mumbai. Seen here is mom and cub walking across the bridge with apartment blocks in the background on the outskirts Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) in Mumbai, India.Mumbai can show the world the way forward in living with large cats! As there is no other place like it on the planet.
SGNP is more proof that we humans live with majestic animals in urban areas without even knowing they are there - AND without major problems - if we let them be. Leopards are the most adaptable and the most persecuted cat on our planet. Protect Sanjay Gandhi National Park and Aarey and all the buffer zones. There has not been an attack in in SGNP in the last 3 years!!!!!! India is so unique in the world in their spiritual and cultural respect for living with tigers, leopards and elephants etc. Take this honor with the responsibility for saving SGNP and all the animals within.
Watch "Mission Critical Leopards at the Door" @ 8pm EST and Mission Critical Orangutans @9pm on NG WILD tonight!
Our natural world is simply perfect and incredibly amazing. And without it we as humans cannot survive - we need to wake up and save the nature that we depend on for our oxygen, water and food - life itself. If we save big cats we can save ourselves.

"An Etosha giant... if you have ever seen the elephants there, you would know... they are huge!!!
It is yet again deeply sobering that this majestic elephant with its glorious knowledge of the lands in Etosha ( Namibia ) literally in its whole soul, this patriarch Bull’s only enemy is - MANKIND.
It’s beholden on the youth of this planet to now take over the mantle of protection and nurturing of the lands these remarkable animals need to survive, along with the huge number of other species they share the African continent with.
Get angry - get active and get out there and help on the ground, assist the NGO’s, vets, rangers and ordinary people just like all of us, who through their donations and pro-active help can transform the threat of catastrophic species extinction, into a nightmare memory which we will never ever repeat.
With wildlife 🐘 and the environment 🌲continuing to be under threat, there is a need for conservationists to come up with diverse anti poaching methods. Wildlife Works is so grateful to @rangercampusfoundation for conducting a skills course on air to ground communication. The 2 week training involved experienced rangers and pilots from different organizations where rangers were able to communicate and receive directional instructions from an aircraft. This is part of a lead ranger program, a collaborative initiative from ranger campus. Swipe for more action.
To lead. Ripen with courage.
Trust in life. A bond they hold profound.
Born amidst the unforeseen.
But, shared. A desire to belong.
To be Wild once again.
Triumph greets dedication where compassion embraced these foothills.
Selfless summiteers ascend the seemingly insurmountable. And together, a mountain is climbed.
An unrivaled momentum develops.
Sustained. Acknowledged. For there are many more peaks to be seen from this height, which must championed in the great landscape of wildlife conservation. 🐘♥️
When we were working in Thailand we met the fantastic Patricia Simms, Patricia is a Filmmaker, Producer & Founder of World Elephant Day.

Our latest blog post is about a guy with the coolest 😎 job!
Simon Kipsang works as a ranger and a co-pilot at Wildlife Works. When he is not conducting his normal ranger patrols, this husband and father of two is up in the sky conducting aerial surveillance with our gyrocopter pilot Keith. As a child growing up in rural Kenya, Simon didn’t see much of the wildlife 🐘 and only learnt about it in books while in school. His dream is now true because he is bestowed with the responsibility of protecting animals and the environment 🌳he so much cherished. “My most satisfying day at work is when we find nothing negative to report whilst on a patrol. It means that there is no poaching activities and that the forest is safe at the moment,” he says. Read more in our blog, link in bio 👌

My strongest weapon is the written word,
the power to change the fate of the battlefield through
connecting to each and everyone of you.
Every time you read my posts, learn and share about the plight of wildlife to survive in the daunting world we have created,
the call of the Wild travels just a little bit further.
I would walk a thousand miles and write a million words if I could bring back every dead elephant bull, I or all the scouts of the continent have encountered.
This isn't only about elephants, it isn't only about pangolins, rhinos, lions, leopards, sharks, tigers, vaquitas, cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, pandas, palm oil, deforestation, plastic pollution, you name it... What this is truly about, is the critical need to stop the blood flow, to stop the exploitation, the imbalance, the corruption,
and the destruction of the only thing that unites us all, our Mother Earth.
We have to be relentless in our pursuit of justice for the natural world.
The war of Saving the Wild, is a war on greed, but what stands to be lost is painfully priceless.
Every species and their stories of suffering haunt me.
Yet at the same time they compel me to push on through the darkness, wherever the road may lead, no matter how difficult.
Anyone that has spent time amongst wild things will understand; the pure magic of nature, the awe and the longing to be close to something so much greater than what we are, than what we comprehend. 🙏🏽🌍🙏🏽
Asian elephant at Angkor Wat. For over 4000 years elephants have been used for transport of goods, logging, warfare or religious ceremonies in parts of Asia. I would love to see them in the wild, but outside of India the wild populations are in rapid decline. Even though many countries are now banning ivory and tightening trade in line with CITES, there simply isn’t enough remaining habitat for them across much of their range. It’s important to remember the decline of the elephants’ habitat and populations is not driven by local forces, it is very much in the hands of international logging corporations and poorly informed tourism.
