Thank you to environment secretary michael gove mp and illegal wildlife trade conference champion zac goldsmith mp, for visiting the #tuskrhinotrail. @michael.gove.mp @zacgoldsmithmp
rhino poaching is increasing: in 2007, 13 rhinos were poached in south africa; in 2015 that number rose to 1,175, out of a global population of fewer than 30,000.

the sculptures are on display at a selection of iconic london sites including trafalgar square, covent garden and carnaby street and will culminate with the celebration of world rhino day on 22 september 2018.

This is a 13th-month-old rhino foetus from a black #rhino that was poached back in 2013 on lewa wildlife conservancy. lewa has now had over 4.5 years with zero poaching, thanks to their incredible rangers on the ground. @lewa_wildlife
this foetus can be seen at lewa education centre where they also had over 4,177 children and teachers participate in the conservation education programme in 2017.
with #worldrhinoday just around the corner, there is still a lot to do to help protect these endangered species and we need your help!
tusk has been a major partner of lewa since its inception. please donate to tusk so we can continue working with our project partners like lewa to ensure these animals are around for future generations.

There are only 6,500 painted dogs, also known as african wild dogs, left in africa!

although they are perhaps africa’s most successful predators with a high overall success rate for their hunts. disease, poaching, and rapidly disappearing habitat threaten the last few wolves!
painted wolves: a wild dog’s life is an incredible new book written by peter blinston and nick dyer. it is part of a campaign to raise awareness of the species and build a movement to ensure the long-term survival of this little-known creature.
it contains over 220 of nick's stunning images and an insight into what peter and the painted dog conservation are doing to conserve these incredible animals. @nicholasdyerphotography @painted_dog_conservation
to get your hands on this incredible book and help with their kickstarter campaign please visit www.paintedwolf.org

all profits will go to the painted wolf foundation @paintedwolf_org
congratulations to nicholas dyer photography for being selected as one of the finalists in the natural history museum's, wildlife photographer of the year competition #wpy2018 with this image "ahead of the game”. .
