In November 2016 we spent two weeks in Botswana, fulfilling ourselves a big dream - Safari in the Okavango Delta. During this time we were really lucky with lions - and could not get enough of watching them.
Did you know that the Lion population declined more than 90% over the last 75 years? The good news: it is not too late to save the big cats in Africa and around the globe. And everyone can help, you can help! With donations to WWF and National Geographic Society, I decided to do my part. What do you think of donating money to save big cats? Are you already?
After a fantastic fantastic camp at Tadoba with an enthusiastic group, it is time for some photo processing, some work and a good night's sleep!
Welcoming the 18 strong group for the next camp tomorrow at Nagpur. And what jungle we are off to? Oh yes, it is Nagzira! :) :)
A lot of photos here for processing, and processing each one is like living (and loving) the each moment again!
Commercial tourism is gradually destroying the cultural and natural relevance, history and beauty of the environment. These are grave signs, we believe, and hence, we, at Footloose Journeys endorse the concept of sustainable tourism, which aims to #preservethenature and our #naturalresources.
Today is #EndangeredSpeciesDay and in just a little over one month the chica and I will be on our first research project of @endangered_activism documenting big cat conservation in Namibia. The words of @natgeo photographer @paulnicklen hit it on the head today: "The humpback was once endangered. It was so close to extinction that many said, “let it go.” But those who believe in the power of hope and action and policy wouldn’t let up. The conservation community stood up for the humpback. Activists stood up for the humpback. Governments made changes. Politicians listened to their constituents. In summary, people didn’t give up. They fought. Today the humpback is on the rebound and is in healthy numbers. This is where hope gets us. There is where action gets us. Don’t give up. We can do it. We must do it now." We think this is what can can do with endangered big cats through the Big Cat Initiative with @natgeo and other species initiatives if we don't give up hope. #endangeredspecies#animalactivism#nevergiveup#streetart#bigcatinitiative@kritterklips
