I am honored to share my photos from the #DreamBigPrincess photography campaign! Ruth Lekgpanai is the first woman in Africa who is a "giraffe guard" for the “Twiga Walinzi,” a brilliant team that works as field researchers and protectors of endangered reticulated giraffe in northern Kenya. @nrt_kenya @sandiegozoo It was announced in September 2016 that the giraffe, an icon of Africa, is in peril — the population of this majestic species has quietly dropped by 40 percent across Africa, from 140,000 in the late 1990s to around 85,000 today. Ruth is on the front lines of protecting this beautiful animal, gathering more information on giraffe populations and developing a photo identification database to track individual giraffes. She manages a network of 120 camera traps and conducts snare removal patrols. It has been inspiring getting to spend time with this remarkable young woman and learn what inspires her to dream big! From August 15-October 11, 2017, Disney Worldwide Services will donate US $1 for any public post of a photo using #DreamBigPrincess or like of such a post on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, for a minimum donation of US $500,000 and a maximum of US $1 million to Girl Up, the United Nations Foundation’s program supporting adolescent girls’ leadership and empowerment.annie - #regrann
