Will We Ever Get to Meet His Great-grandchildren? 
http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/will-we-ever-get-to-meet-his
It’s time for us photographer all to be conservationists!
Lion numbers have plummeted to somewhere around the 20.000 mark. The king of the jungle is fast heading towards extinction.
In the 1900's there were at least 500.000 lions in Africa!
1960: 200.000 lions 
1980: 76.000 lions 
2012: 23.000 lions 
2014: 17.000 lions 
2015: 15.000 lions
If we are to protect their future, there can be no justification for the continued hunting of wild lions and the cruel canned hunting business should be shut down for good. 
However, in #SouthAfrica , farmers have gone into the bargain basement hunting business by breeding lions to be shot by hunters for a fraction of the price, in so called 'canned hunting' operations … ‪#‎SaveSimba‬.
But many people don’t know that, or accept it. However, many know it and just don’t care because they don’t understand what the impact of a world with no lions may be. The biggest factor in lion conservation is humans. Check out my good friends Lion Aid http://www.lionaid.org to see how you can help protect the "King of the wild".

By interest see my new AFRICAN WILDLIFE PHOTO WORKSHOPS 2015 in the Masai Mara, Kenya. For more info, please follow the link below http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com

Worldwide, there are only about 20,000 lions surviving in the wild. Kenya used to have one of the largest wildlife populations in the world but, has decreased by as much as 75 percent in recent years.

The colors of Africa - dream moments Amboseli, Kenya.
http://www.demipress.me/2015/02/FotoFreitag-Fototipps-fuer-Reisefotografie.html
Minutes before sunrise, when the sky has already turned bright, and a few minutes after sunset, before it becomes dark.

A wonderful feeling of gratitude arose, a gratitude for enjoying this moments and my works in #Kenya this is #DemipressKenya .

Photographed with the #Nikon camera #D750 and the new lenses Nikon AF-S #NIKKOR #20mm 1:1,8G ED. The new focal lenses #Nikkor20mm are clearly my favorites for landscape and hotel photography.

Pin it for later

WELCOME IN LIFE - The first steps of the newborn wildebeest.
(Distance to shoot at least 300 m, otherwise terminated the mother's birth.). 
Okay my friends, thanks all for the very wonderful comments my wildebeest pictures https://plus.google.com/u/0/+UweSkrzypczak/posts/QCAAPfNyh5i?pid=6141261887742834402&oid=110624703529341220926 i start the week "Wildbeest in Serengeti Mara Ecosystem" and share my best picture from the wonder Migration in the #Serengeti and the #MasaiMara

The massed gnu births are a truly unique natural spectacle, but the hundreds of thousands of calves that are born within just a few weeks also attract many predators to the area. From the moment they are born, newborn calves become the prey of big cats, hyenas, jackals, and other carnivores, and only the sheer number of young prevents the species from being wiped out, read here more from the Serengeti Ecosystem http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/serengeti-info or read more in my books http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/books/

ONLY 1 PLACES LEFT on my Migration Photo Safaris in the ‪Masai Mara‬ from 31. Juli – 09. August 2015, best season for the great Migrations. If you're interested, go to http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/photo-workshops-photo-safaris/ for more info, workshop program availability, and prices and services.
All tours are operated in special cars for photographers with only 2 participants/photographers per car!

Der König verliert sein Reich
http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/2013/04/26/what-will-we-do-when-we-sit-in-the-african-bush-and-not-hear-the-lion-roar/

Löwen, die Symboltiere von Afrikas Savannen, sind zunehmend bedroht. Sterben sie aus, verliert die Menschheit auch eine Quelle der Inspiration.
Kein Platz mehr für den König der Tiere: Afrikas Savannen schrumpfen rapide in dem Tempo, in dem die Bevölkerung zunimmt. Die sogenannten Huntingfarmen in Südafrika wachsen rapide.
Maximal zehn Jahre Zeit bleiben den Löwen Afrikas noch, wenn nicht umfassende Schutzmaßnahmen eingeleitet werden. 

1960: 200.000 Löwen
1980:  76.000 Löwen 
2012:  23.000 Löwen 
2014:  17.000 Löwen 
2015:  15.000 Löwen in Afrika

»Great Migration« ‪Masai Mara‬.
The river in the Mara is the only stream that lasts throughout the year and the most important water reservoir of the ecosystem. Especially the survival of the largest hoof animal population in the Serengeti, the gnus, depends on it. Summer after summer, the gnus, as well as other antelopes, gazelles and zebras wander out of the Serengeti north to the wet Massai Mara in Kenya. It is the animals’ pivotal food reservoir during the three-months dry period in Tanzania. Through this so called »Great Migration«, the animals tap into all nutrition resources that occur as a result of the seasonal rains inside their habitat over the course of a year. The »Great Migration« is a survival strategy and secures food for the large hoof animal populations in the savanna. To interrupt the animals’ routes to their food through heavily frequented traffic ways, cultural land seizure or other economic facilitation means to thwart their survival method and would entail the collapse of the ecosystem.

The great migration.
Every summer, during the dry season in Tanzania, as many as 1.5 million gnus, zebras, and gazelles migrate northwards from the Serengeti National Park to the #MasaiMara in #Kenya, where there is much more rainfall, and consequently more grass to feed the migrating animals.
The river in the Mara is the animals’ pivotal food reservoir during the three-months dry period in Tanzania. Through this so called »Great Migration«, the animals tap into all nutrition resources that occur as a result of the seasonal rains inside their habitat over the course of a year.

Look like soldiers …. On the track of the gnu.
The basis of the entire ecosystem are the annual ungulate migrations, and the gnus especially cover enormous distances on their continual search for fresh and varied grass.
Gnus and zebras migrate in single lines that often stretch from one horizon to the other. During these migrations, herds of up to 100,000 animals collect at water holes, fords, and places where the grass is still fresh. The total gnu population is estimated at around two million, half of which are continually on the move. These animals not only graze the ecosystem, but also revitalize it with millions of tons of natural fertilizer, which is in turn distributed over a wide area by dung beetles -> read more in my books http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/books/
