nrt_kenya Incredible shot from @thekenyancamper in marsabit national park. a vital wildlife refuge and watershed, marsabit np is surrounded by nrt-member community conservancies: songa, shurr and jaldesa. they are critical in helping to protect the park’s forests, water systems and other natural resources, which support local livelihoods and diverse wildlife species. #leopard #marsabit #safari @the_big_north #whyilovekenya

nrt_kenya Photo: @grevyszebratrust. the great grevy’s rally is back! there was an incredible turnout of citizen scientists in 2016, and together they helped build the most comprehensive picture of grevy’s populations to date. since then, drought and conflict have affected much of the grevy’s range, so we’re calling for another count - and this time we’re including the equally threatened reticulated giraffe. this is open to anyone in kenya, and is a fantastic opportunity to explore north kenya’s community conservancies - the only requirements are a car and an adventurous spirit. so come join us jan 27th and 28th 2018! more info in link in our bio. #grevyszebra #citizenscience #zebra #zebrafoal #kenya

nrt_kenya Repost @nature_africa ・・・ photo by @amivitale. soil is crucial for addressing climate change. but it's often an unsung hero in the climate story. as part of our partnership with @nrt_kenya, we’re working to make changes in rangeland management to increase soil carbon, leverage carbon markets, and provide revenue for community rangeland trusts. in northern kenya, rangelands are managed mainly through the types of grazing animals, the density at which they are grazed, and the frequency by which they are rotated to other parts of the system to avoid overgrazing. these healthier, better-managed grasslands sequester more carbon from the atmosphere, provide better habitat for wildlife, and better pasture for livestock. here, samburu women plant seeds of native plants in areas where they’ve removed invasive red thorn bushes at west gate conservancy. #cop23 #samburu #kenya #magicalkenya #africa #protectpreserve #livenature #nature #conservation #sustainability #climatechange

nrt_kenya Repost @ewasolions ・・・ after moving to westgate community conservancy, shivani of ewaso lions approached the conservancy warden, stephen, and asked for a small team to work with her and help find lions. stephen found a young, smiling 19-year old warrior - jeneria (middle of top photo). in the early days, jeneria was very shy and quiet but that has quickly changed and he is now a fearless leader. jeneria came up with the concept for warrior watch in 2010 where he decided that the best way to save lions in samburu was to engage the warrior demographic. jeneria now works with 19 warriors (including letoiye and yesalai pictured here), stops other warriors killing lions, collars and tracks lions, attends to difficult conflict incidents when lions have killed livestock and engages with the community on a daily basis. the warrior team is a remarkable and formidable force for conservation in samburu under jeneria's leadership. #samburu #conservation #lion #wildlife #warrior #warriorwatch top photo taken by kris norvig.

Repost from the @r.e.s.c.u.e elephant sanctuary in namunyak community conservancy. ・・・ this is the video of the very first moment our newest orphan loisaba was introduced to the rest of the herd on thursday. nadasoit, his first friend, came barreling down the hill to meet loisaba. they then began to intertwine trunks, like little children holding hands. the other elephants, followed, excited to see him and eager to get to know him. they followed loisaba everywhere for the rest of the afternoon. #elephants #dontletthemdisappear #saveelephants #retetielephants #northkenya #elephant #kenya #namunyak #saveelephants @nrt_kenya @conservationorg @tusk_org @sararacamp @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @natgeo @loisaba_conservancy #stoppoaching

nrt_kenya #repost @amivitale ・・・ wildlife keeper mary leads young elephants shaba, bawa and pokot on their daily wilderness walk in the area around reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in namunyak community conservancy. shaba has become the leader of the little herd of rescued elephants being cared for by keepers employed from the local namunyak community. all elephants were orphaned by environmental causes or poaching, but these wilderness walks help them learn natural behaviors so they can eventually be released back in to the network of north kenya's community conservancies. #dontletthemdisappear @conservationorg @tusk_org @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @natgeo @natgeocreative @nature_africa #elephant #saveelephants #retetielephants #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikond5s #photojournalism #amivitale

nrt_kenya Just your average day in sera rhino sanctuary! sera rangers work 24/7 to protect the wildlife and people of this beautiful conservancy. with support from @lewa_wildlife they haven't lost a single rhino to poaching since they were translocated into the sanctuary in 2015. a partnership with @saruni.lodges has opened up tourism opportunities, linking wildlife conservation to education, healthcare and employment benefits for conservancy members. support from @usaid, @nature_africa, danida and others continues to empower the sera community to improve governance, promote peace, and manage their rangelands more sustainably. #rhino #elephant #safari #rangers #kenya #seraconservancy #africanwildlife #conservation photos by @tarnbreedveld

nrt_kenya #repost @amivitale ・・・ photo by @amivitale. local school children run in through the grass at lewa wildlife sanctuary (@lewa_wildlife) while on a trip to learn about the wildlife in the area and the environment they share with them. these children and these educational offerings are an important part of the movement of community led conservation happening within the member conservancies of the northern rangelands trust that inspires love and respect for the animals here. #dontletthemdisappear @conservationorg @tusk_org @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa @nature_africa #kenya#northernkenya #magicalkenya#whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica#nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikond4s #photojournalism #amivitale

Video credit noelle herzog via @saruni.lodges. happy #worldrhinoday! could you hold your nerve this close to a wild black rhino? in 2015 sera community conservancy became the first community owned black rhino sanctuary in east africa, and certainly one of only a handful on the continent. the 11 black rhinos in the sanctuary are thriving, thanks to close monitoring from community scouts. in early 2017, sera partnered with saruni lodges to offer the first rhino tracking experience in east africa. #rhino #saverhinos #rhinoconservation #safari #walkingsafari #toocloseforcomfort

nrt_kenya A kiunga marine conservancy ranger releases undersized lobsters back into the ocean. ensuring sustainable fisheries is a primary focus for coastal conservancies, and the communities are starting to put gear restrictions, no catch zones and size limits in place to safeguard their livelihoods for the next generation. #fisheries #lobster #sustainablefisheries #coastconservation

nrt_kenya #repost @r.e.s.c.u.e ・・・ a wild #elephant herd passes through namunyak community conservancy. this is one of the herds the reteti orphans might be able to join once they are ready to return to the wild. although the #greatelephantcensus led by #vulcaninc showed an alarming decline of elephant populations across africa between 2007 and 2014, there was more positive news in the community conservancy areas of north kenya. the census actually showed an increase in elephant numbers here. happy #worldelephantday photo by @amivitale for @natgeo. #elephants #retetielephants #northkenya #kenya#namunyak #saveelephants @conservationorg @tusk_org @sararacamp @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo

nrt_kenya Happy #worldlionday! photo: @ewasolions. ewaso lions parter with the community of westgate conservancy to monitor the area's lions and mitigate conflict with the people they live alongside. their proactive approach not only engages young warriors and women from the local community, but also means that lionesses like naramat, mother to these cheeky faces, can successfully raise cubs in community areas. 🦁 #lions #conservation #samburu #safari #lioncub

nrt_kenya Josephine, lucy and rose are kalama's first female wildlife rangers. kalama is home to some of north kenya's most iconic wildlife, including elephants, oryx, kudu, leopards and wild dog. it takes guts, passion and determination to protect these animals and the people that live alongside them. photo: @amivitale #girlpower #thisgirlcan #womenrangers #conservation #amivitale
