MOST RECENT

Some shots you never forget how they were made. The night before we had been chasing 2 lions who we had heard chuffing in the area and found one casually walking along the road, lit only by the headlights of our car. At the time I have to admit I was pretty anxious because anyone who has sat in a safari jeep knows, you’re pretty open to just about any attack if an animal decides you’re not welcome. But it was our last night at the lodge and the lion conservation project had spotted the lions deeper in the park earlier in the day so we were reassured that they weren’t in the neighbourhood. I had it in my mind that we could shoot the lodge under the stars with the watering hole in the foreground illuminated by the moon. So we jumped in the jeep and headed out only to find a herd of 200 buffalo chilling out, grabbing a drink and kicking up a dust storm all around the hole. Thankfully Brian our guide was also as keen to get a shot as we were so moved us a bit further down the valley where I could sit in the bush without fear of being stampeded and create this set up with @gijs_hardeman on the roof. And they’re I sat, on the floor in the middle of the bush, under a blanket of stars and the Milky Way, happily shooting away for an hour (forced to stop by Gijs falling asleep). I’ll never forget making this and never fail to appreciate the beauty of the night.

“Dubai” the White Rhino
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Meet “Dubai", a Southern White Rhino that I photographed at the Nariobi Safari Walk in Kenya. The name 'rhinoceros' means ‘nose horn’ and comes from the Greek words ‘rhino’ (nose) and ‘ceros’ (horn). There are five different species of rhinos, they are: Black Rhinos, White Rhinos, Indian Rhinos, Javan Rhinos and Sumatran Rhinos. Despite their names, White and Black Rhinos are actually grey, and there are two different types of White Rhinos: the Northern White and the Southern White. The White Rhino is the second largest land mammal after the elephant and the largest of all rhino species. When "Sudan" the last male Northern White Rhino, died earlier this year (March 2018) it took the subspecies to the brink of extinction with only two others remaining in the wild - Sudan's daughter, "Najin" and his granddaughter, "Fatu". Both female. Their near extinction is due to decades of illegal poaching for rhino horn with most of the demand coming from China and Vietnam. Rhinos have been around for over 50 million years and though they are built for survival, they can not survive against international criminal gangs of poachers. We must act now to end both ivory and rhino horn poaching and only a concerted global effort will stop this illegal trade. #savetherhino

Photo by @amivitale. Kamara, a Kenyan rhino keeper is nuzzled by black rhino Kilifi who he hand-raised along with two other baby rhinos at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife) in Kenya. Kamara spends 12 hours every day watching over the vulnerable baby rhinos. If you went back 50 years, this is where one of the densest populations of black rhinos lived, but today most people living here have never seen a rhino in their life despite it being the most perfect habitat for them. In two generations, this animal was poached almost to extinction. These communities and people like Kamara hold the key to saving Africa's great animals. | These images are being shared in celebration of the 2018 National Geographic Explorers Festival, which brings together innovative scientists, conservationists, explorers, and storytellers from around the world to share their discoveries, insights, and solutions for creating a more sustainable future. To showcase the work of this community, @Cara_Santa_Maria —an award-winning science journalist, the creator of the popular podcast “Talk Nerdy,” and a correspondent on National Geographic’s Explorer television program—has selected six images from photographers who are also National Geographic Explorers.

Are rhinos misunderstood? Rugged, menacing, dangerous. Fact is they are not, and they are killed every day. Our brand's icon reflects their true nature and we donate part of our proceeds to help save this incredible species. @tonyandnola

The rhino population in Africa has fallen by more than 95 percent since 1900, to just 21,000 southern white rhinos and 5,000 black rhinos; 80 percent of those animals are in South Africa’s game reserves and on ranches. In a response to the dire situation that is facing rhinos in Africa, with rhino poaching at an all-time high, concerned conservationists teamed to create Rhinos Without Borders. RWB plans to relocate 100 white rhinos from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana, where poaching is almost non existent. Writer, @ToddPitock, and I joined the first convoy of 15 rhinos to make the 800 mile journey by road from Free State, South Africa to their new home in the Okavango Delta.
