This video appeared online two days ago - this is viewed as a ‘sustainable and legal practice’ in Namibia. Yes, hunting can be used as sustainable however this seems brutal, given the heard is right there. So I went digging and according to my sources, ‘the main hunting method for elephants is targeting lone bulls. These are the older males with big tusks. Sometimes they will have two younger male 'guards'. But usually target lone bulls. You never target a bull in a herd. If you need to, you wait for days for the bull to leave.

One reason (amongst some obvious ones like trauma for the herd) is the herd charging you (like in this video). It is a poor hunter that shoots in self defence. Sometimes you get unlucky and stumble into an animal unaware. But this is rare....’ Trying not to judge here but Imagine you’re out walking with your family one day and someone shoots your Dad, three times. Elephants experience almost the same level of emotion as humans do. I understand that elephants do need to be ‘culled’ at times but to me, I find this method brutal.

Don’t be afraid to stand in the spotlight and work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. Courage is looking fear right in the eye and saying, ‘Get the hell out of my way, I’ve got things to do’... Over the last couple of months I’ve learned a few lessons which I would have loved to avoid. These lessons are fattening up the book I’m writing. It’s really important to surround yourself with good (professional) people, especially if you are a good person and even more so do not compromise your self worth. 📷 @amseaimaging

Watching the masters of their craft, Wayne Pashley & Andrew Miller, sound design the short film I’ve directed with @canonaustralia @thehivefilms is beyond epic. This dude has over 30 years experience as supervising sound editor on movies like the Great Gatsby and Mad Max, I can’t believe he’s now sound designing my project with the equally impressive Andrew Miller in the next room chopping up my voice over (poor guy) and 100 other of the most unique sound effects you’ve ever heard. And a massive thank you @edward_copestick for being you!!


Clarity is everything. If you can’t see clearly or think clearly, don’t move forward until you can 👊🏻 @amseaimaging

Hi there.

Thank you @justinhofman for sending this to me 🤣 I always love chatting to you & the videos are just tops! SO WEIRDLY CUTE the baby King Penguin ~ I love him #Repost @marionisland Video by @ottowhitehead | King penguin chicks really are some of the most comical characters on Earth.
They wear a coat of fluffy brown down for the first 10 months of their lives to help them endure the freezing cold temperatures of winter on land in the sub-Antarctic.
Thereafter they moult and look more like the colourful adults. These new feathers ensure they are well insulated for their first foray into the frigid, wild and productive waters of the Southern Ocean.
Whilst the king penguin population at Marion Island has been stable for the last few decades, recent aerial photographs of the world’s largest colony in the Crozet archipelago has revealed that 90% of these penguins have vanished since the 1980s.
The causes are unknown, but it emphasizes how important it is that we do everything we can to help maintain the health of these precious ecosystems, for the animals that live there and for the future generations that will inherit the Earth.
