The dik-dik is a tiny #antelope that tends to mate for life.

It can be found, living with its mate, in low bush areas along dry, rocky stream beds—and it's rarely seen away from its partner. Learn more: http://bit.ly/awf-dikdik.

During an early morning game drive in #SouthAfrica, AWF's Marie Frei is fortunate enough to spot a #rhino.

But, she wonders how long they will remain in the country. "With rhino poaching rates steadily increasing each year in South Africa...it breaks my heart to think the rhinos I’ve seen in the parks I’ve visited may no longer be there." Read more: http://bit.ly/VF0j5I

Officials use sniffer dogs to detect illegal #wildlife products, like ivory and rhino horn at air-and sea-ports and deter criminals.

Learn more about our sniffer #dog program, and how it's helping to protect Africa's elephants, rhinos, and other threatened wildlife: http://bit.ly/snifferdog. #conservation #animals

Isn't this a great view from AWF's Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge?

At Sabyinyo, the beauty goes even further than this. The lodge was brings #tourism revenue to the community, and, in turn, the community protects mountain #gorillas. Win-win solutions for all. Learn more: http://bit.ly/awf-sabyinyo.

Behind the Legal, Domestic Ivory Trade, a Black Market Flourishes

“Consumers are more than likely buying #ivory that came from a brutally poached #elephant in Africa, which is why we must stop buying, selling, and coveting ivory altogether rather than try to regulate the trade.” Read more: http://bit.ly/1zaFMFm #animals #wildlife #Africa
