photo by @amivitale . mary lengees comforts suyian, reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e )’s very first resident. suyian was rescued in september 2016, when she was just four weeks old. in the first days that an elephant arrives, keepers stay with the orphans around the clock to offer comfort and be sure that the calf gets all the medical attention and love he or she needs.

this is @amivitale and i’m excited to be taking over the @worldpressphoto account to share photos from my world press photo winning @natgeo project, “warriors who once feared elephants now protect them,” about 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. 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

If you're headed back to school soon, remember that you can down load free student activity books on the conservation of endangered species, with a focus on rhino, from our website. just visit the education/rhinocation tab. ⠀

It's been a while since i've posted a progression pic. i've been dealing with a deep pain in my leg. the mri shows its a hip impingement, which means a deep pain in my leg 😅😅. needless to say i took some time off to heal. i have a long way to go on both healing and my artwork. only thing i can promise is a unique perspective in the form of black excellence.

(1/4) people always ask me why i collect elephants and spend my phree time running an elephant instagram account. most assume i collect elephants because of their reputation as good luck charms. while there is certainly a level of truth to that explanation, i have come to see a deeper connection between my extensive collection and the elephant species itself. the cliché of “an elephant’s memory” does not exist without reason; it is biologically proven that elephants have miraculous memories. in phact, elephants have been known to leave the burial site of a stillborn calph (elephants are the only other animals other than humans that bury their dead—they use their tusks to dig) and return to the exact spot as many as 20 years later to grieve. they cry real tears. elephants remember immaculately. to me, my collection is just that: a compilation of memories of my moments in my own life (shoutout to everyone who's contributed to the collection over the years!) that make up a larger reminder of something extraordinarily important to me: keeping elephants around as an existing species. unphortunately, the prospect of extinction is not far off. elephants could very well disappear within an estimated 10 years—and not from natural causes, but rather at the reckless hand of humans. both species of elephant (african and asian) are incredibly intelligent, selph-aware, and emotionally mature. studies have proven their miraculous human-like tendencies time and again. but, ironically, humans are the ones that will soon wipe them out altogether. the plight of the aphrican elephant is due to illegal poaching for their ivory tusks. constant m****r of these animals—estimated to take place every 15 minutes—is perpetuated by an insatiable desire for ivory phigurines, jewelry, and other decorative items with no practical use. despite varying degrees of legality on the buying and selling of the commodity, the ivory trade is present in most countries—including the us. data recently showed that ivory sales in washington, dc have actually increased three-phold over the past decade. thousands of ivory items were sold in antique shops,...

From @natgeo - film by @amivitale | happy world elephant day! feeding time at the reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ). reteti's nutritionists prepare specially developed formula for the orphans which is then delivered to them wherever they may be - in the field or in the boma. feeding is a big part of the day’s work for the handlers and drinking is a noisy, slurpy affair. “before, i was afraid of wild animals, especially elephants,” says dorothy lowuekuduk, one of the nutritionists, “but now i see them differently. the sanctuary has changed my feelings about elephants.” the elephants are fed 2 liter bottles, every three hours, around the clock.

reteti elephant sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ), in northern kenya is 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. reteti operates in partnership with conservation international (@conservationorg ) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.

Rhinos’ ears are omni-directional and are continuously rotating to detect any sounds of potential threats. they also listen for warning calls from other animals, for instance oxpeckers, that they have a symbiotic relationship with.

world elephant day is an international annual event held on august 12, dedicated to the preservation and protection of the world's elephants. the aim is to bring attention to the urgent plight of asian and african elephants which are running out of space and time. before we know it they will be gone - unless we can stop the senseless poaching and consumer demand for ivory, and allocate protected natural habitat in countries where elephants and other wildlife can thrive now, and in the future. @worldelephantday @savetheelephants

A majestic bull elephant emerges from the khwai river in the okavango delta in botswana. i was there with the fantastic @barclay.stenner.safari and was honoured to spend world elephant day, which was on 12th august, in the presence of these remarkable creatures.
botswana has the largest population of elephants in africa, partly because they take a very hard line against poaching, an issue that is decimating populations in some of the other african countries. we cannot let these beautiful animals become extinct. it is our responsibility to save them and to stop the horrendous cruelty of ivory poaching. 🐘💚🐘💚🐘

A belated post in honor of world elephant day. it takes time to develop the character that is bestowed in these majestic old males. that is also how they should die too, from old age, not a poachers bullet or worse.
i remember this encounter well. we stopped, he slowly approached and stopped too, as if to examine us with the same level of intrigue that we had with him. i am fully zoomed out here, at around 28mm this should give some idea of how close and intimate our encounter was. he stood motionless for an eternity, staring directly at us, flapping his ears every now and again, before slowly and silently continuing on his way.
a silent elephant is a relative term. they do move so gracefully, and for their weight, make little to no noise unless moving through foliage. what does give them away is that incredibly loud rumbling and gurgling noises that emanates from their stomachs! 😀😳 #animalglobe
