Will He Make It?

This newborn Desert Elephant (Loxodonta africana) not only needs to survive the extreme environment of the harsh desert, he needs to overcome the ever increasing threat of man. Will he make it? Let’s hope we can make elephant poaching a thing of the past.

Dry sand, wet trunk, and a beautiful capture of running after mom. I love your action photography, but I love even more those moments of tender that you caught so beautifully.

Doggone…

Let’s hope not… These African Wild Dogs (Lycaon pictus) are highly endangered in spite of their amazing hunting skills. Loss of habitat has lead to dwindling populations across the continent with an estimated five or six thousand left in the wild.

Whew, It’s Hot…

Finishing off the year with an average temperature above the freezing point, you bet it’s hot. Yet another record month for warm temperatures is keeping the Arctic Sea Ice at an all time low. Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) on ice.
