We are taking part in the London Enormous Elephant Run next month. Anything you can donate via the link in my bio will be greatly appreciated. The running part is out of my comfort zone enough, but there’s a danger I’ll be doing it in a Elephant onesie as well (if that’s what it takes to hit the target!) It’s for a cause we feel so passionately about. Thank you to anyone who is able to make a contribution and help save this incredible species!

The conservation challenges we face to save the remaining populations of forest elephants across Central and West Africa are significant, in places where environmental protection takes a very distant second place to natural resource extraction. However, we are optimistic that by supporting the brave boots on the ground we can help protect forest elephants and their habitat into the future. AFEF has equipped eco-guards in the forest elephant stronghold of Dzanga-Sangha, and will be delivering further equipment to eco-guards protecting Guinea's last herd of 200 forest elephants later this year. Click the link in our bio to find out other areas that we are fundraising for!

"In the midst of the ravaging armed conflict which tore Central African Republic apart, elephants, gorillas, leopards and chimpanzees found safety in an extraordinary place: Dzanga Sangha, a true natural sanctuary for the emblematic species of the Congo Basin." - Alexandre Brecher, WWF-GHoA. Last year AFEF proudly equipped over 119 eco-guards protecting this iconic forest elephant haven with new boots and socks. New equipment not only assists with the safety of daily operations but also shows these crucial men and woman on the ground that they are not forgotten as they fight tirelessly for Africa's wildlife everyday. Visit our website to find out where AFEF will be delivering next.

Majesty of the wild.

The Uk Government has just announced that the sale of ivory is to be banned in the UK as part of its plan to help protect elephants.
There are exemptions however, and whilst the purists will want these items banned also, I'm in two minds about it. Whilst it worries me that the exemptions could easily create a loop hole through which illegal ivory can still be channelled, at the same time it seems wrong to destroy (for example) a Steinway grand piano built before 1975 because it has ivory keys. This will not help the poor dead elephant... but I agree its an arguable point! Measures taken to ensure each individual item falls within legal bounds, are going to be extremely difficult and indeed, who will do this? I have quoted below part of the announcement. "Several types of ivory item will be exempted from the ban, including those that were made before 1947 and contain less than 10 per cent of the substance.

Musical instruments that were made before 1975 and contain less than 20 per cent ivory will also be allowed to be traded, as will antique items that are especially rare. Museums will be allowed to buy and sell ivory items." Whatever your thoughts, this is a great step forward and not before time! Now we can only hope that the internet trade will be urgently addressed, because if it is not... all this will make little difference to the trade in ivory and its resulting decline in the elephant population.

To illustrate and celebrate the ban, this is my latest elephant painting only signed this morning and soon to be winging its way to it's commissioner. I have called it 'Waterway'. #elephants #ivory #ivoryban #ukgovernment #michaelgove #endangered #conservation #ivorybelongstoelephants #banthetrade #natgeocreative #onsafari #elephantherd @olpejeta @elephants_of_insta @elephant.gifts @michael.gove.mp @artesemfronteiras @artcollector.ae @wildlifeartcurator @bluereview

A guide yesterday posted a picture of one of his guests seeing an elephant for the first time. It wasn’t an extraordinary shot by any means (although he is an extraordinary photographer) but he spoke more about that sense of wonder that you experience encountering one of these for the first time. In that spirit, here is my first elephant encounter. Nothing special about the image except for the moment. Thanks for the inspiration @gerryvanderwalt. #nikon #nikonusa #nikonusers #nikon100 #nikond810 #whyilovekenya #ig_africa #ig_kenya #maranorthconservancy #masaimara #safariexperts #elephants #handsoffourelephants #onlyelephantsshouldwearivory #banthetrade #noplanetb #worthmorealive #shootphotosnotguns #wildkenya

Good news! The UK Government has announced that the trade of items made from Ivory will be banned in the UK in a bid to help protect elephants. The government said the ban will be the toughest in Europe and one of the toughest in the world. More details to follow soon. ---------------------------------------

Exciting preparations as we prepare to equip an important anti-poaching unit protecting the last 200 forest elephants in Guinea, West Africa for Phase 2 of 'Boots on the Ground' in partnership with the International Elephant Foundation. Watch this space!

The last Northern White Rhino, named Sudan, is dead... With only 2 females remaining, the species is now officially extinct in the wild.
This could happen to many more species if we continue to kill animals and destroy their habitat on a global scale.
Let's join forces and make sure it will not come to this! Let's put an end to poaching, pollution and deforestation, so that future generations can still enjoy the beauty of nature!
