#rangermonday with my #rangeman GW-9400 DCJ in action in the #African #savanna, in the #krugernationalpark #SouthAfrica #triplesensor 200 metre water resist #gshock #casio. I love my #desert #camoflage edition Range man. Perfect for the dry, dusty and hard African bush conditions..
It is that time of the year. Warmer temperatures and a touch of rain. #Spiders on the move in and around the Wildlife College in the #krugernationalpark.

#BaboonSpiders are amazing. Much faster than one may realize and run down prey lightning fast. I love these guys. #SpiderMAP #Arachnid #LoveArachnids #InvertebratesRock
Summer has crept into the #Lowveld. The seasonal shift has happened. The #Scorpions are out and about. From, big to small. I love these #invertebrates. They have such attitude and a will to #survive. They form a large portion of many #birds, #mammals, #vertebrate and #invertebrate diets. This posting also for some of my #American friends at #michiganstateuniversity #MSU  #ScorpionMAP #LoveScorpions #ScorpionConservation #ScorpionDiversity #krugernationalpark #TFCA #conservation #scorpionologist

#UnitedStatesEmbassy and #michiganstateuniversity visit and keynote #lecture by Professor Meridith Gore on #InternationalWildlifeCrime today at the #WildlifeCollege. From the challenges of #crime #prevention to #crime #response in the #wildlife and #conservation to the key questions of how do we deal with complexity of the challenge. So pleased to finally meet and share ideas with Meredith and the #US team. Exciting times ahead. Thinking of all you #Spartans. Go green. A big thank you to the @usembassysa for this incredible opportunity. It was great meeting the team.

A #sacred place, discovered in the #blyderivercanyon. A place for #cultural and #traditional #rituals for #herbalists and #inyangas. Harvesting #flora for traditional #medicinal use. Remember to respect local cultures and peoples identity. Remember to walk gently.

#rangermonday My awesome GW-9400-1DCJ #triplesensor #GShock #watch used for #training #natureguides, #fieldrangers and #manhunters. Essentially four #sensors. An #altimeter, #barometric pressure, #temperature and #compass. Not to mention #solarpowered. 200 metre #water resistant. And super #mud, #dust and #adventure resistant. #Tough! #AfricanConservation #biodiversity #counterpoaching #GW94001DCJ #Casio #field #ranger #RangerTools
When you find #cattle #thieves dumping their #excess #meat and internal #organs. Being safe and aware counts. Speed and a keen eye. #tracking #humans. #Bush #wildlife #community #lawenforcement
Big hand. Short fingers. #Triple sensor on my #GShock #rangeman working it hard.
So some #Elephant #MondayMotivation for you. Always start the day day with a solid breakfast, with lots of fiber 不不不不 @rstrizzy @dibbet32 @abby.pointer  @laurenashley1996 @jessiliner @melissadowner96 #AfricanElephant #krugernationalpark #Conservation #megafauna
And he walks by. Late afternoon stately stroll heading to #water, after a long satisfying meal of #Sweet #Thorn #acacianilotica. His rough textured skin, a map of his life journey. Touches of mud, #tree #branches scratches and light #scars, no doubts from other #Elephant #Bulls in jest and likely in #anger. Each day a story. A chapter in a long winding journey, not unlike our own. Emotional highs and lows. With victories and defeats. 
Not shy at all this chap, his confidence and natural potent grace awe-inspiring, as he passed me. But #safety first, always.

The sky pregnant with promise of life-enthralling #rain, in a seemingly muted landscape, whose heartbeat pulses pleadingly with the heavens. Let #Spring bring the touch of #water and rebounding life. #ContemplativeMoments #Drought #DryWinter #krugernationalpark #lowveld #savanna #AfricanElephant #Elephant #dry #CometoSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica #gotosouthafrica
An #Elephant #bachelor herd munching contently away. For my students from #michiganstateuniversity keeping the touch of #Africa, the #bush and its #wildlife alive on your hearts . @alana_auwae @abby.pointer @rstrizzy @melissadowner96 @laurenashley1996 @dibbet32 @jessiliner #SouthAfrica #SouthernAfricanWildlifeCollege #StudentExperienceintheAfricanBush #futureconservationleaders #wildlife #biodiversity #megafauna
#frogmanfriday and loving it. Tough, easy to use and a true professional watch for #marinesearchandrescue. As well as #recreational #scuba #diving, #snorkeling and #freediving. #free diving being my favourite #marine activity.
I missed #worldvultureday 2018, but thought that this #doodle I did of a #whitebacked #vulture would do the trick. Remember, #vultures play an incredible role in maintaining #ecosystem #health by processing #carcasses. They reduce the amount of #disease and also help other #animals access carcasses by opening up. Not nice work, but, hey! Someone has got to do it. Personally, they are also one of my favourite families of #birds. Majestic when they are soaring and up surging and then they can be quite humorous when they are on the ground feeding. Sadly, they are targeted in some #traditional #medicine practices and many die of indirect #poisoning events for #elephant #poaching and #problem #animal control.

Nothing quite like an #African #Elephant #Bull munching contentedly right at the #Orpen gate. The gate #security were keeping a safe distance .

This is the #krugernationalpark at it's most humorous. #BushHumour #SafetyFirst #ElephantJoy #TheKrugerPark
The towering grace of the #Southern #Giraffe, one of #Africa's iconic #species. These seemingly gentle giants (primarily the bulls) can engage in powerful combat, utilising their heads like battering rams. Landing bruising blows on their opponents body, legs and necks.  The blows of which can be heard hundreds of meters away. 
Sadly, some of the other species in Africa are in major decline. Bringing them on to the #endangered #redlist. 
I know a couple of MSU students who really enjoyed seeing giraffe regularly 不 #GiraffeBoxer #wildlife #WildlifeCollege #silentfighter #biodiversity #Conservation #SouthAfrica #michiganstateuniversity
