#day6 photo by @amivitale . time for a mudbath and a dusting for this baby elephant at reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) in northern kenya. the mud and dust are essential to keep them cool and protect them from the kenyan sun and heat. reteti is part of the namunyak wildlife conservancy in the mathews range, home to kenya's second-largest elephant population, and was established in response to demands from the local community who recognize wildlife as an opportunity to improve livelihoods.

this image is from my long-term @natgeo project, “warriors who once feared elephants now protect them,” about reteti elephant sanctuary, the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of africa. to see more of my work on this extraordinary place and learn how to become a part of the movement, follow @amivitale and @r.e.s.c.u.e you can even win a chance to visit right now by making a $10 contribution at prizeo.com/elephants.

Regrann from @ smokey_thebird - baby panda ❤️ #repost #regram @ natgeo ・・・photo by @ amivitale | a newborn giant panda cub is weighed at the bifengxia giant panda breeding and research center in sichuan province, china. in the wild, once they’ve grown to adulthood, female pandas may weigh up to 220 pounds and males up to 250 pounds, and they’ll range from four to six feet long.

i have recently published my new book, panda love, featuring my long-term panda work made on assignment for national geographic. see more on my feed @ amivitale.

#day5 photo by @amivitale . patience is not an elephant virtue at feeding time at reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) in northern kenya. amos leleruk and his elephant hangers-on step out for a meal. in the wild, weaning usually occurs when elephants are five to 10 years old. at reteti, half-gallon-size bottles of special formula are given every three hours around the clock, and drinking is a noisy, slurpy affair.

photo by @amivitale. twelve year old mother giant panda, si xue explores her enclosure at the wolong china conservation & research center for the giant panda in sichuan province, china. because of their low-energy diet, pandas avoid stressful situations and exertion.

it’s hard to imagine, but these animals were once as mythical and elusive as bigfoot. they have been around for millions of years, but were only made known to the western world within the last century. the first panda was captured alive only in 1936.
after years of research, scientists have learned how to successfully breed pandas in captivity. with an adult population estimated at more than 1,864 wild pandas and 500 captive pandas, they have been upgraded from endangered to threatened. in a region where bad environmental news is common, china is on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador.

#day5 photo by @amivitale . mpala and the gang play at the mudhole at reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) in northern kenya. reteti is the first ever community owned and run elephant sanctuary in all of africa and provides a home to orphaned elephants as a result of poaching, human wildlife conflict and drought related issues. all of these elephants will one day be returned to the wild to live the life they were meant to lead.

what’s happening at reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way humans relate to wild animals. this oasis where orphans grow up, learning to be wild so that one day they can rejoin their herds, is as much about people as it is about elephants.

The #samburu people of northern kenya have co-existed with elephants since time immemorial. the people regard elephants as moral beings capable of hurting and being hurt. as a result, elephants attain a higher moral status in the samburu society than any other animal, including livestock.

the samburu are the force behind northern kenya’s reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ), the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in africa. the sanctuary provides a safe place for injured elephants to heal and later, be returned back to the wild. you can support this incredible place and the people who protect wildlife. make a $10 contribution in support of reteti for a chance to win a trip to kenya, see @davematthewsband in concert, take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by dave and receive a @nikonusa d7500 18-300mm vr lens kit with @prizeo (link in profile). not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. the first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by elephant gems (@elephantgems ). reteti operates in partnership with conservation international (@conservationorg ) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the reteti community-centered model to create even bigger, lasting impacts worldwide.

Fatu is one of only two northern white rhinos alive on the planet, following the death of sudan, the last male northern white rhino who died due to age related complications on march 19th at ol pejeta conservancy (@olpejeta ) in kenya. fatu and her mother najin are the two last of the northern white rhinos remaining in the world and may hold the keys to saving the entire species.
.
sudan’s death could mean the extinction of his species, though scientists are considering other options involving fatu and najin, including stem cell procedures and harvesting eggs. if there is meaning in sudan’s passing, it’s that all hope is not lost. this can be our wake-up call. in a world of more than 7 billion people, we must see ourselves as part of the landscape. our fate is linked to the fate of animals.

😍😍.... love nature!!! regrann from @natgeo - photo by @amivitale | the mountains surrounding long lake are shown on a misty morning in jiuzhaigou nature reserve and national park located in the north of sichuan province, china. the park is part of the min mountains on the edge of the tibetan plateau and known for its many multi-level waterfalls, colorful lakes, and snow-capped peaks. jiuzhaigou valley was inscribed by @unesco as a world heritage site in 1992 and a world biosphere reserve in 1997. the nature reserve is part of an ambitious series of growing reserves meant to give all wildlife, including pandas, room to live in the wild.
