This is the team. These are the amazing people who give all of their love and attention to 13 #elephants and one #rhino, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Reteti keepers, we have nothing but gratitude and admiration for all that you do. You are our heroes. ❀️🐘 Photo by @katie.rowe @nrt_kenya @tusk_org @glassybaby @conservationorg @sandiegozoo @natgeo @sararacamp #bekindtorhinos #DontLetThemDisappear #rhinos #saverhinos #saveelephants #stoppoaching #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa

Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - controlled burn, northern Kenya - impersonating extinction in the rangelands of northern Kenya - The drought across East Africa in 2016-17 has given a stark preview of the challenges that the region will face in the coming years, as degraded landscapes, growing populations, and the impacts of climate change combine to reduce arability and habitability of key landscapes. In Kenya, conflicts have been exacerbated, resulting in lands and homes being raided by pastoralists, putting endangered wildlife populations, habitats and vital landscapes in further jeopardy. Supported my National Geographic Society, scientists at Mpala Research Centre, northern Kenya are currently engaged in a long-term (1995) field experiment in a dry savannah woodland ecosystem. The main idea: to use different types of fencing to exclude different groups of herbivores - mega-herbivores (elephants, giraffes), all mid- to large-size wild herbivores, cattle. The setup allows scientists to study the effects of different herbivore groups on the landscape and on each other. The different exclusion plots also mimic different extinction or management scenarios. For instance, what if we kept all the large wildlife off the land, and kept the land only for our cattle? What if elephants and giraffes went extinct? Now using controlled burns they are examining the interactions between fire and different large herbivore ecosystems, asking questions like: How do herbivore affect fire temperature, patchiness and impacts? How do different herbivores (wildlife, elephants, cattle) respond to burns? How do fire and herbivores interact to drive savanna ecosystem function? They have now shown that fire alone and elephants alone have minimal impacts on savanna trees, but that the two in combination greatly reduce tree cover. @natgeo @everydayextinction #fightingextinction #northernkenya #kenya #fire #bushfire #conserving #conservation @usuaggielife Thanks to @thephotosociety #mountaintop #travelbag #travelasia #traveling #travelbug #traveller #travelpic #views #traveltips #mountain #travelmore #travelusa #travelphoto #mountainlion #seaworld #travelogue #tr

Totally love this image!!! 😻 ************************************ . The wait... Any minute now, a small herd of small elephants is going to rush through the gates, into the boma, hungry and looking for their milk. Our amazing Reteti Keeper team (in their new t-shirts) is ready for them. Keeping the elephants fed is a full time job for our over 40 dedicated keepers. Half-gallon-size bottles of special formula are given every three hours around the clock in a messy, slurpy exchange.

The #Suguta river - that flows northwards from Silale Crater to Lake Logipi - is seasonal with a few permeant pools of slightly saline water. Home to many crocodiles, tilapia and an array of bird life. #greatriftvalley #gregoryrift #northernkenya #byhelicopter #explorekenya

North Goes The Road New journal will be up on my website in two weeks. I'll share most, if not all, of my images from my trip to Marsabit and Moyale. Otherwise, for those planning on traveling to these destinations, prepare for a rather smooth journey. Also, you don't need a 4x4 to get there, for those that earlier inquired. Get a car and just up and leave. It really is that simple. #gothere #littlestoriesofmylife #momentsofmine #bbctravel #cntraveler #cnnafrica #cnngothere #createexploretakeover #welltraveled #igkenya #igersnairobi #bbctravel #cntraveler #gothere #alwaysgo #cnngothere #livethelittlethings #seekthesimplicity #vscokenya #vscoeastafrica #openyourworld #landscapes #postthepeople #portraiture #travelDeeper #dhlafrica #visualambassadors #houseoftones #collectivelycreate #huffpostgram #wildsights #widenyourworld #IAmANomad #northernkenya

Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - a Samburu Moran (warrior) applies ochre to his hair and body in preparation for a lmuget (ceremony) whist under the shade of a thorn tree, northern Kenya - I’m here on assignment for @geomagazin documenting the extraordinary work of Ewaso Lions @ewasolions who are working to encourage coexistence between people living on community land, and all carnivores ; not just lions, but also hyena, wild dog, leopard and jackals. Here in samburu those monitoring the movement and relaying the whereabouts of carnivores are drawn from the local community, and this follows throughout this region of northern Kenya; community engagement is vital if wildlife and human populations are to coexist at all, particularly in as complicated an environment as this which is prone to drought, flood, and tribal conflict.

A smile speaks a thousand words. We love seeing the smiles on the faces of these girls from Sirata Oirobi Primary School in Samburu, Kenya as they receive instruction on the use and care of the reusable menstrual hygiene kits KURA has provided for them. This recent delivery ensures 200 more girls in northern Kenya the opportunity to attend school without worry of interruption. Every girl deserves this chance.
