진짜 어쩌다 아프리카🇿🇦
이번 추석에 독일가려고 작년 10월에 비행기랑 호텔 예약 다해뒀는데 올해 4월쯤 인스타에서 본 여행사진 한장에 반해서 오빠한테 "아프리카 갈래?" 했는데 덥석 문 오빠ㅋㅋ
오빠는 워낙 오지를 좋아하고 나는 씨티 좋아해서 내가 아프리카 던졌을때 울오빠는 넘나 좋아했고 나는 아프리카 발권 직전에 그냥 독일가자며 오빠를 설득했는데 생각해보니 아프리카 1도 생각 없던 오빠에게 먼저 제안한건 나였음🤦♀️
내가 아프리카 던진 뒤로 오빠는 혼자 아프리카 여행 엄청 찾아봐서 이 상황에서 안가면 밥상차려놓고 밥 먹지 말라는거랑 똑같다고 해서 내가 진 아니러니한 상황😅
둘이 여행스탈 1도 안맞는데 진짜 우리부부 어.쩌.다. 아프리카까지 오게 되었다
내가 생각해도 신기함ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
신혼여행간 세이셸도 휴양지이긴 하지만 리조트빼곤 도시 자체가 개발된 곳이 아니였고 우유니는 말할 필요도 없이 극한오지체험^^^^^^^^ 오빠랑 이러케 오지만 다니니 회사사람들이 나더러 여행스탈 의외라구............ 네 저도 제가 의외예여.................
Rescuing and caring for baby rhinos from poachers is by far one of the most rewarding things I've done. They are usually found next to their dead mother who's horn has been poached, they are too frightened and sad to leave their mothers side. If no one gets to them quickly enough they are usually left to die in the wild too. It's a heartbreaking scene and the babies are heart broken for a long time afterwards. You can tell just by being with them that they are depressed and missing their mothers. This is why it is so important to go through the motions with them and be by their side throughout the journey. Soon enough over time they become happier again and they begin to become so very attached to you or whoever is caring for them... To the point where they get upset or angry if you walk away. This is little Danni in this photo. She was showing her love towards me by pushing herself on to me as if to give me a big cuddle. Much like elephants, rhinos don't know their size or that their weight can actually hurt. Out of love she always put her whole body on me just to be close and feel the love again. And if I walked away she'd cry. I hope to do this again in the near future. If you are traveling to Africa look out for some Ethical volunteer programs to help save this species. They are rapidly going down. If we don't make a change they will soon be extinct, and a distant memory of the past.
Happy #worldrhinoday everyone.
There is a magnificent beast immediately recognizable to every person in the world, with its heavy grey skin and prominent horn. However, it is deeply endangered in the wild, and is quickly on the road to extinction if something isn’t done. So it is that World Rhino Day was established to help raise awareness and protect what remains of these magnificent creatures.
HISTORY OF WORLD RHINO DAY
In 2010 it was apparent that the plight of the Rhinoceros wasn’t known to people around the world, and most people didn’t know just how close we were coming to total extinction of this majestic species. So critical is the condition of the species that less than 30,000 rhinos were alive in the world at that time.
HOW TO CELEBRATE WORLD RHINO DAY! .
Celebrating World Rhino Day starts by educating yourself on the plight of rhinoceros in our modern world, and what you can do to help save those that remain. Rhinos are such an impressive symbol of strength, resilience, and tenacity that it would be a heartbreaking shame to have those traits disappear as they become a species that used to exist. Don’t let these
I can’t imagine a world without these magnificent animals. It’s the worlds responsibility to protect animals like this and we should all do our bit in spreading awareness or contributing in some way to make sure we still have 🦏 for future generations.
Today is World Rhino Day!🦏❤️ We are celebrating these beautiful creatures as well as spreading awareness about their rapidly decreasing population. There are ways you can join #kktww in helping to #savetherhino - please 📧 email@example.com to learn more. Thank you for the beautiful 📷: @finkelisrubin #letsallgo !
World Rhino Day !!!! Hoy puedo decir que tuve la gran oportunidad de ver estos gigantes en su hábitat natural antes de que los extingamos, algunos de esos que sobreviven día a día en #krugernationalpark en #southafrica lamentable alrededor de 100.000 rinocerontes mueren cada año víctimas de cazadores dedicados al tráfico de sus cuernos para comercializarlos principalmente en Asia donde se regalan luego de cerrar negocios importantes o para que estúpidamente creas que puedes ser mas macho 💪🏻, vale agregar que están formados por queratina igual que las uñas de los humanos. #rhinos#worldrhinoday#rinocerontes#freeandalive#natgeowild @natgeowild #humanosestupidos#idubegamereserve @idubegamereserveofficial

Today, on september 22, is World Rhino, Day, a day, that highlights and celebrates all five species of rhino: Black, white, greater one-horned, Sumatran and Javan rhinos. Rhinos have become under tremendous pressure due to poaching. Despite being made of the same substance as our finger nils and hair (keratin), the demand for rhino horn is huge on some markets, as ingredients in some hocus pocus medicines that have no scientific proof to have any effect.
Because of this high demand, rhinos are murdered by well organized poachers. In 2017, at least 1028 rhinos were poached in South Africa, about three per day. That is a little less than the 1215 in 2014 but 9000 times higher than in 2007, when “only” 13 were poached.
We need to bring an end to this madness by highlighting rhinos and remembering how great they are to have around as living animals, not as horn-powder in some home made medicines with doubtful effects. I remember seeing my first rhino in Kruger National Park during June 2003. It was like having travelled back in time, like observing an ancient dinosaur in nature. Seeing this magnificent animal walking by, completely minding its own business, was a mixture of adrenaline, admiration and pure happiness. Since then, I have seen rhinos in different places in Africa, from safari vehicles, from a mountain bike and on foot during “bush walks”. This photograph is from Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve near Durban in South Africa, a magnificent place that I’d love to visit again anytime.
#worldrhinoday . We saw several white rhinos during our stay in #krugernationalpark last year. The black rhino was shy, with only one siting by us. Unfortunately, my photos of the black rhino 🦏 didn’t come out clear as I snapped these just as she charged our transport, ramming is three times, almost turning us over. No one was hurt, and we drove away looking for more sightings. Our guides summarized the mommy was injured (there were signs they discovered) and was protecting her young calf, who was ‘hidden’ in the brush. No ill will against this specific mom or rhinos as a whole. Rhinos are beautiful animals, peaceful, just leave them alone and they will leave you alone. I took these photos within an hour of our meeting the black rhino mommy. We could have - but you must never- reached out and touched these white rhinos as we slowly passed them in our truck. They are simply magnificent animals. Please help protect them.
I was so lucky that I had the opportunity to see rhinos during my trip to @krugernationalpark. These majestic and incredible animals are, unfortunately, critically endangered due to poaching. The park take numerous measures to ensure the safety of the rhinos, even giving them personal body guards. Today, on National Rhino Day, I hope we can all help make a difference to protect these amazing animals. ❤️🦏
