photo by @amivitale . jan stejskal from dvur kralove zoo (@safari_park_dvur_kralove ) comforts sudan as he takes his last breath. moments before he died, sudan was surrounded by love, together with the people who committed their lives to protecting him and giving him the good life he enjoyed. there were the directors and people from the dvůr králové zoo, staffers and his six dedicated keepers from ol pejeta, who spent more time with him than their own children. veterinarians and other people from kenya wildlife services were present as well. most of them had been crying for days. the sky opened up. rain poured down and he perked up for a moment. when he died, it was silent except for one little go-away-bird chirping ‘go away, go away, go away.’ poaching is not slowing down. it’s entirely possible, even likely, that if the killing continues, these rhinos—along with elephants and a host of lesser known plains animals—will be functionally extinct in our lifetime. i only hope that this will be a wake-up call. we can often forget that the best protectors of these landscapes are the local communities themselves. their efforts to preserve community cohesion is ultimately the best immunization against forces that threaten both their wildlife and way of life.

i have launched a print sale of the last of the northern white rhinos with 100% of the proceeds going to @olpejeta so that they can continue on their mission of protecting and fighting for some of the world's most vulnerable creatures. visit the link in my profile to learn more and purchase a print.

Dr al harris (blue ventures) and ian craig (northern rangelands trust) will be discussing the importance of social development, both on land and sea, in conserving our planet.

blue ventures recognises that managing #fisheries and marine resources works best when it is in the hands of local #communities. this is particularly the case in low-income countries, where the national capacity for enforcement of marine and fisheries legislation may be weak. blue ventures' strategy focuses on empowering coastal communities to manage their own resources and develop effective, adaptive and locally appropriate #conservation strategies, designed to sustain local small-scale fisheries and safeguard marine #biodiversity.

Have you ever dreamt of witnessing a lioness s****h her prey? what about going nose-to-trunk with a baby elephant? look no further than #myafrica, conservation international’s virtual reality experience, where you can journey to kenya and back in just 10 minutes.

i am thrilled that #myafrica, the blue chip vr film about the reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) that i helped direct with emmy award-winning @passionpicturesfilms for @conservationorg launches this friday, april 20 at the @tribeca film festival in nyc! it is screening at the tribeca festival hub in nyc as part of tribeca immersive from april 20-28. then, on april 30 it will make its online debut on conservation international’s website. what a privilege to work with these talented guys @camcampkin @gregwdennis @waldo_etherington @deep_vr

the plight of wildlife and the conflict between poachers and increasingly militarized rangers has received much-needed attention. but very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the front lines of the poaching wars, and the incredible work being done to strengthen them. we often forget that the best protectors of these landscapes are the local communities. their efforts are ultimately the best immunization against forces that threaten both their wildlife and way of life. my hope is that sudan’s legacy serves as a catalyst to awaken humanity to this reality.

photo by @amivitale . scientists are predicting that climate change could lead to a rise in sea levels that would flood at least 17 percent of #bangladesh and create around 20-35 million #refugees by 2050. they say the monsoon rains in the region are concentrating into a shorter period, causing a cruel combination of more extreme floods and longer periods of drought. in the capital of #dhaka, the impact is already being felt, with some half a million migrants arriving in the city each year. these “climate change refugees” are pouring mostly into squalid slums and the biggest reason for moving is environmental degradation.
the situation is at once ironic and unjust.the poorest are the most affected by climate change but they are the least responsible for it. whether it becomes one of the great human tragedies of our time or a model for the future depends on these choices; what happens next is in our hands. right now bangladesh appears far away, but our planet's ecosystem is an intricate web and the lessons learned here, are important for all of humanity.
