I’ve just heard that #elliemay is doing really well, her leg is just about healed, which is great news. finally the collars had arrived in banda aceh, sumatra, so we can get the elephant program moving forward again. thank you for all the people that have donated funds, there is a link in my bio if you’d like to help out in anyway or drop me a message. help us directly with a contribution to our forest & elephant patrols! link in bio :) @wildlifeasia @istandwithmypack @nadyahutagalung @leonardodicaprio @leonardodicaprio fdn @rainforestactionnetwork @haka_sumatra .

Tomorrow morning i’m back on the shark fin trail, and after the last two locations and concerned about what we may uncover. @wildaid hk @wildaid @racingextinction @sea_legacy @bluespherefoundation

@savewildtigers the royal albert hall in london is set to house over 80 stunning wild tiger shots taken from over 30 of the world’s best wildlife photographers. sept 18 - oct 14, 2018. this event is incredibly exciting and will be a celebration of the majestic tiger, whilst providing an important platform to shed light on the all too real danger of extinction tigers are currently facing. the time to act is now! spread the word and show your support by visiting the exhibition! the picture above shows one of the threats to wild tigers, how drugged tigers are being used in theme parks and zoos across asia for entertainment and for breeding of body parts for traditional medicine and tiger bone wine. go to @savewildtigers website, get involved page and go from there #eyeonthetiger #photography #wildlifephotography #art #tigers #royalalberthall #raiseawareness #savewildlife #savewildtigers #animals #eyeonthetiger

Blue sharks 🦈 crossing fins. these sharks are so curious, following and nudging me from time to time. an amazing wildlife encounter and one that i hope more of you can experience. sadly 4 to 5 million are being pulled out of the atlantic ocean annually to supply the maxims chinese restaurant chain with fins for shark fin soup in hong kong. the meat is then sold locally, specifically in spain. @wildaid @wildaid hk support wildaid for there ongoing shark campaign to reduce the demand. #sharkweek #racingextinction #sea_legacy

This is #ellemay, she’s on the road to recovery but sadly she’s lost her family and the chances of reintroduction to wild are very slim. her foot was caught in a snare and her mother and family had to move on. right now in the leuser a ecosystem there are less than 500 elephants remain in the ulu masen and leuser ecosystems. between 2012 and 2017, at least 64 elephants died in aceh province related to human conflict and poaching. of six primary elephant corridors in the leuser ecosystem, only two remain intact (i.e., the jamboe aye and lesten corridors). all elephant corridor disturbances have been human related (e.g., roads and habitat loss). the lesten corridor is under threat due to a large hydro-electric project (i.e., plta tampur). if the hydro-electric project is developed, the dam and associated infrastructure (e.g., power lines and access roads) will completely destroy the lesten corridor. please help us put a stop to this and sign the petition, link in my bio. this has to be stopped. @haka_sumatra @istandwithmypack @socp.official @rainforestactionnetwork @wildlifeasia @nadyahutagalung @racingextinction #forgottenelephants #cutconflictpalmoil #lovetheleuser #racingextinction

Some great news! an overwhelming majority of krill companies are to stop fishing in vast areas of the antarctic peninsula. the decision of the krill fishing companies comes ahead of a meeting in october that will decide whether to adopt a proposal to create the largest ocean reserve on earth 🌏 😊. the weddell sea sanctuary would protect 1.8 million square kilometres. the decision to stop krill fishing off the peninsula follows pressure by campaign groups including @greenpeaceuk @greenpeaceships @arcticsunriseship . i was lucky enough to be on one of those campaigns and the raw beauty that i witnessed in the antarctic will stay with me always. this image of a crabeater seal on the ice, gives me hope. to all those people fighting the good fight, keep going and never ever give up. keep the wild places wild! #protectantarctic #weddellsea
