Despite international action to ban illegal sales of ivory, as many as 500 elephants are killed by poachers each week. That's just one reason why the UK is supporting hundreds of rangers to help protect some of the world's most precious wildlife. #WorldRangerDay 📷: Ivory Burn in Kenya - Mwangi Kirubi

“Our freedom and prosperity today were made possible by those that fought over a century ago.” Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson unveils a new War Memorial in Pukeahu National War Memorial Park to commemorate the sacrifice made by those who served in World War 1. The striking memorial has been designed by Weta Workshop, the design company responsible for the production design and graphic effects in the Lord of the Rings movies

A hongi greeting in Kaikōura. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is taught the traditional Maori welcome as he arrived in New Zealand for the first of two days of talks on trade, foreign policy and international security issues.

Va va Froome. British cyclist Chris Froome brings home the famous maillot jaune (yellow jersey) for the fourth time as he wins the general classification competition of this year's Tour De France, the world's biggest cycling race. Ambassador Ed Lewellyn was there to capture the moment Chris is reunited with his son and family after 21 days in the saddle. Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt was also there and presented Simon Yates with the white jersey as he won the young riders competition, matching the same result his twin brother Adam achieved in 2016.

Meet Asimo, one of the world's most advanced humanoid robots. That's exactly what Britain's Foreign Secretary did during his time in Tokyo this week. Boris Johnson visited both Honda and Waseda University’s robotics centre, where robots have been developed to help in disaster situations and healthcare. The university works closely with the University of Birmingham in the UK and has a co-operation agreement on robotics, sharing knowledge and skills.

A truly royal welcome. King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain arrive in the UK for the first State Visit in over 30 years, the last being King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia in 1986. The Household Division display the very best of British pageantry and tradition at the start of a visit that will celebrate the very close royal, historic, cultural and commercial ties between our two nations.

Sunset in Hwange, western Zimbabwe. Our embassy in Harare has three main priorities for the year ahead. First is to ensure credible elections in Zimbabwe in 2018. The second is to encourage growth in Zimbabwe’s economy. And the third is to do more to end the illegal wildlife trade which affects Zimbabwe and other parts of the region.
