Poor giraffe! Shame on the disgusting poachers who hurt him but thank you to these amazing heroes who saved him #BeKindToAnimals#SaveWildlife
That feeling when human hands protect and save what other human hands have harmed ♡ Rescuing a giraffe from a wire snare trap set by bushmeat poachers. After safely removing the snare, the giraffe had difficulty getting up from the tranquilizer antidote.
We had to strap his neck to our vehicle and slowly drive forward as the team pushed on him to give him a boost in waking up and normalising. We all stayed clear of the legs that can deliver a powerful kick and watched in awe as the giraffe trotted away to freedom once more.

Meet Tara. Tara is 1 of 7 critically endangered Eastern black rhinos that Big Life, in partnership with KWS, is dedicated to protecting.
She and her companions are special because they are among the last unfenced and unmanaged populations of black rhino in Africa. More still they are a small remnant of a once vast population of a black rhino subspecies found only in Africa. Once numbering in the hundreds of thousands, there are now approximately 750, making it the rarest of the three remaining black rhino subspecies.
A great man, Wayne Lotter was murdered on Wednesday in Tanzania. Wayne was the founding member of the PAMS Conservation NGO. Wayne was also one of Africa's leading conservationists, driving the charge against elephant poaching. He was hero to many in the international conservation community.
Your work will continue, Mr. Lotter, and your legacy will carry on. Rest In Peace.
