Back of camera shot of a wild forest elephant in the heart of odzala national park in the republic of congo. photographically a seriously tricky week, but without a doubt one of the best adventures i have had. so many experiences that can not be captured on camera. @ccc_odzala take a bow for what you have achieved. it has been epic! #odzalaambassadors #congo #bongo #kingofthecongo #forestelephants #jungle #westafrica #rainforest #adventure

My daughter, siri enjoying elephants in nepal. this images brings home to me just how important it is for all of use to cherish the biodiversity of our amazing planet. i’d also like to thank you all for the ongoing support for the elephants of the leuser ecosystem and may 2018 be a huge breakthrough for the conservation of the amazing forest elephants 🐘. wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year. @racingextinction @sabaghilton @wildlifeasia @istandwithmypack

Update: notes from the field. did i just say rhino 🦏 instead of elephant 🐘? the forest elephants of the leuser ecosystem are one of the last populations of forest elephants that hold both native ranges and their social systems in the way they have existed since before people inhabited the islands.

this project is directed at channeling funds to the simple step of determining how the elephants live so we can plan on how to best protect them. home ranges, territory overlaps between families and herd viability are all top of the list. we need to devote more energy to training and demonstrating how to do this in january. we finish the elephant-collaring program and line the rangers up to better manage their elephants. more importantly we give them the data analysis tools that we’ve learnt in central africa so they don’t have to start from scratch.

this is a rare opportunity to help an even more rare elephant species get the foundation they need to survive in this ecosystem.

the interactive nature of forest elephants means they influence the daily habits of hundreds of species throughout the forests they live in. from full canopy trees to amphibians on the floor, all are directly benefiting from the pretense we set here. protecting the ecosystem’s flow and interactions is as important as protecting the land it sits on. without those interactions the land simply stops harboring these species.

this is one of the greatest projects of our generation as it pertains to elephants and we have the opportunity to set the precedent. link in my bio, make a donation for christmas πŸŽ„πŸ˜ @wildlifeasia @paintedgroup @istandwithmypack @haka_sumatra @racingextinction @sabaghilton

Found in southern and western africa forest elephants 🌳 🐘 look a bit different as they have adapted to being able to move through the forest rather than on the open savanna's.

if you'd like to help the rangers who protect them, they are in need of boots & socks. 🚩go to @forestelephantfoundation bio for link. a thank you to @cristinakitty11 for posting about these guys. 😊

Take a look at this gem from our video archive: separated from mom, this young elephant hurries towards his family, passing some buffalo along the way. he nuzzles his sibling and mom, stella, when he reaches them. πŸ’•πŸ˜

Did you know that forest elephants are considered the gardeners of the forest? they are essential for seed dispersal, the germination of canopy tree species and they can create and maintain jungle bais (forest clearings that benefit a variety of species. but today one elephant is killed every 15 minutes for their ivory.

The intertwining of agricultural land and protected forest in the guinean highlands can be both beautiful and heartbreaking, as with many things in africa, and it’s important to appreciate a degree of necessity in the narratives we attach to it. here you can see three layers of the development of guinean landscape around sérédou: wetland fields for cultivating rice (on a scale for consumption by the same communities tending to them); beyond, a belt of palm forest; and finally the mountains of classified forest in which all natural resource extraction is, in theory, forbidden.

The ziama forest is a remote and vital tropical forest ecosystem in the mountainous highlands of south-eastern guinea and extends across the border to liberia. renowned for its incredibly high levels of biodiversity, boasting more than 1,300 species of plants and more than 500 animal species - including the elusive forest elephant. afef spent a week with @faunafloraint and the rangers from the centre forestier de n'zerekore in guinea to learn more about the important work they do protecting this beautiful forest and to provide the cfz rangers with some much needed equipment to help them carry out their duties.

The border crossing between liberia and guinea at ganta en route to deliver equipment to the cfz rangers protecting guinea's last forest elephants and their habitat - the ziama forest. due to difficult road conditions in guinea it's quicker to fly into liberia and drive up to guinea. ------------------------------

did you know that forest elephants have the smallest family groups of all 3 elephant species? according to andrea turkalo (the leading expert in forest elephants) forest elephants have an estimated average family group of around 3 individuals. however it is not uncommon to observe family groups of up to 7, which is more akin to savanna and asian elephant family sizes. further studies need to be conducted to find out why the groups are smaller however forest elephants are difficult to study as they spend up to 95% of their time in thick impenetrable forests meaning they cannot be observed from the air. elephant families form the foundation of elephant society for all species of elephant!

#worldelephantday2018 🐘🌍♥️✊🏼
everyday across the african continent, 9️⃣6️⃣ elephants are brutally murdered for their tusks. these sentient, compassionate, intelligent, complex, delicate, wise, magnificent, gentle and sentient beings are being slaughtered into extinction at the hands of human beings who value ivory more than the precious life of the beautiful elephant it belongs to. and they won’t make it without us. their very existence is in our hands. and as custodians of this planet, it is our duty and responsibility to ensure that all of the creatures we share it with, are kept safe and free of cruelty and suffering. their lives matter. they deserve to be protected. and they are worth fighting for. can you imagine a world without elephants? i can’t. i won’t. that is simply a fate i refuse to accept. let’s be the generation that saves these magical creatures - instead of one that allows them to disappear right before our very eyes. together we can make a difference. together we can ensure that our beloved gentle giants continue to roam the forests and plains of africa for generations to come. together we can #savetheelephants ♥️ fight for what you love. be a voice for all of those without one. if not us, then who? if not now, then when? do your part. let’s be better humans together. for the love of elephants... βœŒπŸΌπŸ’š

Thank you to all the rangers and eco-guards working tirelessly across central and west africa to protect forest elephants and their habitat. rangers are the boots on the round risking their lives everyday in the war against poaching; operating in tough, dangerous conditions, and cover vast areas on foot each day. afef is committed to supporting boots on the ground in their line of duty to not only allow rangers to carry out their duties safely and effectively but to also remind the rangers that they are vital to the survival of the forests and all wildlife that inhabits it, and that they are not forgotten in the world's desire to protect the planet's precious fauna and flora! if you would like to equip a ranger please visit our website and donate towards boots on the ground.
