Ein Affe kauert verängstigt hinter einem umgekippten Fahrrad, mit dem Rücken zur Wand. Um seinen Hals liegt eine Eisenkette, die ihn daran hindert zu fliehen. Mit Panik in den Augen blickt er hinauf zu seinem Trainer, in Erwartung brutaler Peitschenhiebe.
Dieses Bild des chinesischen Fotografen Yongzhi Chu, aufgenommen in einem ‪#‎Zirkus‬ in Suzhou (China), wurde nun von World Press Photo zum "Pressefoto des Jahres 2015" in der Kategorie ‪#‎Natur‬ gewählt.

The colors from Africa by +Daniela Skrzypczak ... what a fantastic moment. One the right time on the right places.
 
Sunset in Amboseli, Kenya - the colors of Africa.
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.

The number of lions in Africa has fallen so much that there are growing concerns for the future of the entire species.
Africa will lose its wild lion population within the next 10 to 15 years unless something dramatic is done about the situation.
In 50 years, Africa’s lion population has declined from 450.000 to 20.000, leopards have followed a similar curve from 700.000 to 50.000 and there are around 8.000 -10.000 cheetah left today. These figures represent a 95% decline in these predator populations.

The lion is a creature of the savannah and semi-open woodlands, but as burgeoning human settlements and overgrazing pick the land clean of grasses, the land turns to dust. Where the land is yet to unravel, subsistence crops or large-scale plantations of cash crops, such as cotton, crowd out the last of the land’s wild creatures.

Under such conditions, neither lions nor the prey species that make up the lion’s diet can survive for very long. With human populations on the rise in a region where food is scarce, many animals are killed for bush meat, while lions increasingly turn to domestic livestock as an alternative source of food. The inevitable result is that conflict between lions and human beings spirals out of control.

In fact there are more captive lions in South Africa than wild ones. This method of “canned hunting” is completely legal in South Africa. Canned hunting is to be stopped!!!

While it is estimated that no more than 20,000 lions remain in Africa, these figures do not accurately reflect the species’ prospects for survival. For a start, no one really knows how many lions there really are left.

Rather than asking how many lions there are it is far more important to ask about the trajectory for the species and about the state of the ecosystems in which they are living. All across Africa, lions are in danger because of human encroachment onto lion lands, unsustainable hunting of the animals that make up the lion’s diet and retaliation against lions for killing livestock

In the Russian Far East, Siberian tigers, a tiger subspecies, are now doing better with all the money invested, because everyone knows about the status of the tiger. I hope to create similar projects in Africa.

Some would say "survival of the fittest"....or some could agree with "evolution taking place" but if it discovered that the species is dying off due to the direct actions of humans then definitely there should be
"ways and means" toward a solution

#SaveSimba my +Instagram idea for Africans lions. This picture is for me a special moment from my work few weeks old #lions #cubs in Kenya's #MasaiMara.
Every day I could watch the lion family and photograph (with special authorisation from KWS Kenya). After three weeks, a trust was given the lion mother. The lions babies come up to two meters to my car. A treat to see in a world of rapidly declining lion populations and increasing human-wildlife conflict. It's hard to believe we may have lost between 70-85% of Africa's lions in the last 50 years.
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

The lion is an important part of mankind's culture. The lion's existence is interwoven into the very fabric of African folklore and daily life and the iconic images of a lion stalking the savannah, the rasping echo of its roar and the bloodcurdling chill of the animal in full flight are sights and sounds that are, in every sense of the word, irreplaceable.

In respect to these animals, all close up pictures are taken from a distance with extreme long lenses (the super telephoto lens from #Nikon AF-S #NIKKOR #800mm 1:5,6E FL ED VR) and #Nikon #D810. Thanks #Nikon for the best camera and lenses for my conservation work.

A MAJOR VICTORY FOR LIONS IN THE WAR AGAINST TROPHY HUNTING! Positive steps for ‪#‎Lions‬ in ‪#‎Europe‬ ... thanks my good friend from Lion Aid for publishing http://www.lionaid.org
The best news in the new year 2015 for africans lions - the roaring of the lion … ‪#‎SaveSimba‬.

NEW IMPORT REGULATIONS CONCERNING TROPHIES OF SIX SPECIES TAKE EFFECT TODAY ACROSS THE EU.
One of those species is lions and it is a BIG step forward for their protection.
It effectively elevates lions to Appendix 1 in #Europe , closes the "personal and household effects" loophole and will fully ban lion imports into the EU from Benin, Burkina Faso and Cameroon (because the EU has already passed a "negative opinion" on these countries). And all other incoming lion trophies will require import permits meaning that the receiving EU country must satisfy themselves that the hunting of lions in the source country is sustainable and promotes conservation (which we all know it does not!), before the permit is issued.
LionAid have been pushing the EU for this change for three years and we are delighted today that this big step has finally been achieved.Sadly, few people understand what has been achieved and the news has not been given any media coverage (to our knowledge) and our blogs about it have raised barely a ripple …… good good news +Chris Mercer.
