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

#repost @amivitale ・・・ video by @amivitale. a baby elephant takes a splash in the cooling mud at reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in northern kenya. elephants cover themselves in mud as a shield against the harsh sun and the rescued elephants being cared for at reteti are instinctively teaching each other many of these useful skills. read more about reteti in my @natgeo story: https://tinyurl.com/kvopc69 follow @r.e.s.c.u.e and nearby @sararacamp to learn more about these initiatives and help support their work! @lewa_wildlife @nrt_kenya @nature_africa @conservationorg @tusk_org @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa #elephant #saveelephants #retetielephants #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikond5s #photojournalism #amivitale

#repost @martinbuzora ・・・ trials of a dung beetle, from the kenya wildlife diaries series. dung beetles know a thing or two about hard work! they roll balls of dung to lay their eggs and store food inside and bury them in various locations which they can remember later. "beautiful dramas unfold all around us in nature" says martin, "and can happen in all shapes and sizes!" check out the full series on smithsonian and love nature. #dungbeetle #beetle #lewa #kenya #africa #martinbuzora #kenyawildlifediaries #documentary #nature
