Elephant keeper Lekupania gets a kiss from little Kapai on their daily nature walk at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e). Having arrived so young, Kapai had a lot to learn about being an elephant, but she had the rest of the Reteti herd and her keepers to show her how to browse, graze, and navigate. Someday soon, she'll be big and strong, ready to return to the wild. Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is the first ever community-owned and -run elephant sanctuary in Africa. It provides a safe place for injured and orphaned elephant calves to heal so that they can be returned back to the wild. Reteti operates in partnership with Conservation International, which provides critical operational support and works to scale the community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.

A few snapshots from yesterday's community walk in my favourite local nature patch, Dinas Powys Woods.
Over 350 people showed up to protest plans for a large dam to be built here, which would destroy patches of ancient woodland that have been around since the ice age. The area is also a biodiversity hotspot, home to species including the dormouse, an animal that's protected under Schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
It was awesome to see so many passionate, good-hearted people showing their support for a grassroots campaign to save their beloved woods. I'll be one of the many people contacting @natreswales to oppose plans for the dam, suggesting that they consider a less environmentally destructive method of flood prevention. Big love to the @woodlandtrust for sticking up for nature, and to every person involved in the Save Dinas Powys Woods campaign 🙌🏻
Yellow-crowned Night Heron (Nyctanassa violacea), is one of two species of Night Herons found in the Americas, the other one being the Black-crowned Night Heron. It is known as the Bihoreau Violacé in French and the Pedrete Corona Clara in Spanish.

Right after I got out of the car, I have spotted this magnificent Western marsh harrier (Circus aeruginosus) planning up in the sky. He was reluctant to come as close as I would have liked so this picture is a massive crop. A reedling can be a potential meal for the harrier as well as other critters like small mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians or even insects. It is sad that even today, birds like the marsh harrier face threats like being illegally shot while migrating, especially in the Mediterranean region or being poisoned by led shots.
A fierce welcome to Tanzania! 🇹🇿 Our last stop of this trip delivered the most insane wildlife sightings—from big cats, to kills, to a Great Migration river crossing... Life-changing in more ways than one—here we go! 🐆
