The Nature Conservancy Africa (@nature_africa) Instagram photos and videos

List of Instagram medias taken by The Nature Conservancy Africa (@nature_africa)

Photo by Haroldo Palo, Jr. The Amazon rainforest is often called the lungs of our planet and it’s devastating to see them on fire. Forests sustain life on earth. Let’s do more to protect them. 🌿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Photo by @roshni.lodhia. Education is a gift. For children and the world around them. This back-to-school season, you can help send girls in Tanzania back to school. Get all of the details here: nature.org/educatingteresia (link in bio). 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Maasai Mara National Reserve

Photo and words by @nitish.madan. "As we were scanning the vast grasslands of the Mara our guide spotted these two huge and handsome male lions who were on their morning patrol. I took this shot when one of them was running towards another with his windswept mane. It looked like he was swimming in the ocean of grass under dramatic African skies." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every photo tells a story. Be sure to submit your own today.

Amboseli National Park

Happy World Elephant Day! 🐘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To celebrate we’re sharing one of our favorite photos from The Nature Conservancy's 2018 Photo Contest. This gorgeous lady was photographed by George Dian Balan in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, making it a perfect choice today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s because TNC supporters like you are helping us keep a corridor open between Amboseli and Kilimanjaro national parks, enabling elephants to reach life-saving water and food in the long dry season. With drought becoming more frequent, saving this corridor is more critical than ever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can help elephants today, too! Submit your own photos of wild elephants in Africa at nature.org/photocontest (link in bio). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Beautiful photos like this one remind us why we love elephants — and all action starts with love. So don't be shy. Share your elephant love today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Photo by @pamswildimages. Just can’t wait to be king! Great to see so many beautiful lion submissions like this one to @nature_org’s global photo contest already this year. Check them out at nature.org/photocontest (link in bio) and share your own. Happy World Lion Day! 🦁 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Video by @roshni.lodhia. 55 billion liters. That’s how much water invasive plants are “stealing” from the Greater Cape Town Region’s dwindling supply each year. Luckily, there’s an incredible team of women working hard to reduce this water loss and give native fynbos the opportunity to flourish. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s launch day for @nature_org’s global photo contest! 🌟 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nature gives us all a little something different. Last year, people from 135 countries shared 57,849 photos, each one with a unique perspective. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you see through your lens? Click the link in our bio to show us what makes you feel connected to the natural world, to get a little inspiration from your fellow nature lovers, and for contest details. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can’t wait to see your photos and to hear the great stories behind them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Loisaba Conservancy

Remember the thank you letter you signed to let @loisaba_conservancy rangers know we’ve got their backs? We turned it into a t-shirt and they love them! Big thanks to each and every ranger who puts their lives on the line to protect wildlife that are important for local communities and cherished by people around the world. Happy World Ranger Day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Loango National Park

Photo by @roshni.lodhia. Plant a tree and watch it grow. 🌳 A new study (link in bio) reemphasizes the importance of trees for tackling climate change. And it’s all about planting the right trees in the right spots. This photo was taken in Gabon, one of the last truly wild, densely forested, and untouched places on the planet. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy

Amazing to see so many runners below the beautiful Lewa trees. Congrats, all! And shout-out to @bobbyneptune for getting this great shot. 💚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ from @lewa_wildlife: “‘Safaricom Marathon reminds us that conservation and community development are interconnected. As Kenyans, we have the responsibility to help uplift the communities that need our support.’ The First Lady of Kenya, Hon Margaret Kenyatta ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @firstladykenya @safaricommarathon @tusk_org @tropicairkenya @magicalkenya

Photo by Jennifer O’Leary. Door-to-door campaigns led by Pate Marine Community Conservancy in Lamu, Kenya are educating local communities about the importance of conservation and the need to protect the iconic, highly endangered, and super cute green sea turtle. They’re even sending rangers out to help spread the word. On a special day. Every week. 🐢 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Three cheers for all making this important work possible! 🎉 @nrt_kenya @faunafloraint @wwf_kenya @kenyawildlifeservice ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy

Celebrating the longest necked animal on the longest day of the year with a gift for you: 20 seconds of a “giraffic jam” at @lewa_wildlife. 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Big thanks and high fives to everyone working hard to protect them. Happy World Giraffe Day! 🦒 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @giraffe_conservation @loisaba_conservancy @nrt_kenya @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
