To minimize human-wildlife conflict, which is responsible for many #lion deaths, AWF works with partners on innovative solutions that protect both livestock and lions. With the help of the Indianapolis Zoo, we have been able to construct about 170 predator-proof bomas (livestock enclosures) in Tanzania. See what else we're doing with lion #conservation http://bit.ly/11zB7hy

Continuing our list of five remarkable #animal moms…

2. Polar Bear: Attentive polar bear mothers usually give birth to twin cubs that stick by her for about two years to learn the necessary survival skills in the cold climate. The mothers den by digging into deep snow drifts, creating a space protected from the elements. They usually give birth between December and January and keep the cubs warm and healthy using their body heat and milk. The cubs leave the den in March and April to get used to outside temperatures before learning to hunt.

BREAKING: Taking advantage of the ongoing political instability in Central African Republic, poachers may be preparing to perpetrate one of the biggest #elephant massacres in recent history. WWF sources said heavily armed poachers were in Dzanga Bai, locally known as the “village of elephants,” inside Dzanga-Ndoki National Park. Between 50 and 200 elephants congregate every day in the large clearing to drink mineral salts present in the sands.

WWF urges the country to mobilize troops to end #poaching , and calls on the international community to help restore peace in the country and preserve its unique natural heritage.

We will post updates as they become available here: http://wwf.to/15AxiLm. Please share and help us spread the word.

Joshua Trees under the moonlight, Joshua Tree National Park. Shot during the last evening of my Joshua Tree photo workshop, with +O'Neal Photographic Workshops.

These trees are being illuminated by a waxing gibbous moon, and a touch of my smartphone light on the front of the nearest tree (light-painting). The glow on the horizon is from Yucca Valley and TwentyNine Palms. I couldn't believe the intensity of light and shadows cast by the moon this evening. 

This image was captured at 11mm, 15 seconds, f|2.8. ISO 500.
