Nat Geo WILD  Nat Geo WILD is a network all about animals & nature from National Geographic.

Photo by @amivitale. Happy World Rhino Day! Najin, on the right, is one of the last five Northern white rhinos left on the planet. Her very protective best friend, left, is a Southern white rhino. Najin lives at Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) under 24-hour protection by armed guards. March 19th, 2018, Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhino passed away at @olpejeta. These majestic creatures have been poached into near extinction, but indigenous communities and dedicated keepers are hard at work to bring them back. By supporting and visiting these communities, we can help protect these magnificent animals.

Happy #ElephantAppreciationDay from Komali, a majestic Sri Lankan elephant that has lived at #SingaporeZoo @wrs.ig since 1975. While her name means tender or delicate, Komali rules over her herd with an iron trunk, making sure the youngsters respect their elders. Across many parts of Asia, development has led to a loss of elephant habitat threatening the survival of this species. No wonder why Komali is so tough! @wrs.ig supports programs like the Elephant Response Unit in Sumatra, Indonesia protecting elephants like Komali through reducing tensions between elephants and local community members. For a close up of this elephant visit @joelsartore

Thinking back to one if my favorite wildlife moments today, on #worldrhinoday. We were so fortunate to come upon this black rhino at sunset on our way back to camp in Namibia. I think it was just enjoying the sunset too.

As wildlife filmmakers and photographers, there's some amazing moments that take you by surprise. This is one of those moments. After finishing filming all day in the park, we hurried to get back to camp before the park closed, not really anticipating that we might run into this beautiful animal. The lighting was perfect, the evening was perfect, and it was one of those moments that after filming with this black rhino for a good amount of time, I had to just sit back and watch it through my own eyes and enjoy the moment.

It's a strange feeling staring into the eyes of an animal that might not be around for your grandchildren... Hopefully by seeing photos of these animals it can inspire you to help make a change, in any way possible.

Photo by @FransLanting A black rhino calf is struggling to get on its feet. It will get there. Whether our struggle to save rhinos from extinction in the wild will succeed because of the current poaching crisis is another matter. That is why we celebrate rhinos on World Rhino Day, Sept. 22. Check out the organizations in the links below to learn what you can do and go to @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more close encounters with rhinos. @Worldrhinoday @Wildaid @World_wildlife @Lewa_wildlife #Wildaid #Wild_net #Rhino #WorldRhinoDay #SaveTheRhino

This adorable creature is a ring-tailed cat @fortworthzoo. Their scientific name translates to ‘cunning little fox’, although this species is actually a member of the raccoon family. Unlike raccoons, ringtails have long, slim bodies and a much longer tail. Their movements are like a cross between a ferret and a fox. They are incredible climbers and can descend trees and rocks head first by rotating their hind feet by 180 degrees! This species is common and widely distributed from central the United States to northern Mexico and adapts well to disturbed areas. They can also survive in hot, arid climates with limited access to drinking water. To see another photo of this adorable ring-tailed cat follow @joelsartore

There are less than 80 Sumatran Rhinos left in the world. Here’s how you can help right now: natgeo.org/SumatranRhino

Photo by @Shannon__Wild A Verreaux's Sifaka I photographed in Madagascar in the classic ‘dancing’ pose it’s known for when on the ground. Its body is so highly adapted to an arboreal existence, on the ground its only means of locomotion is hopping.

What’s better than getting some shots of Eastern grey kangaroos on a beach! These two girls and a group of about 15-20 Agile and Whip-tail wallabies can be seen on the beaches of Mackay every morning feeding on seaweed and small seed pods! Carsten and I got up at the crack of dawn to get the shots of them at sunrise. Technically we struggled to balance the light on the kangaroo and the light of the rising sun, but team work got us this shot! Visit #capehillsborough today to see its incredible wildlife, mountains and beaches and kangaroos!
