Happy #ElephantAppreciationDay from Komali, a majestic Sri Lankan elephant that has lived at #SingaporeZoo@wrs.ig since 1975. While her name means tender or delicate, Komali rules over her herd with an iron trunk, making sure the youngsters respect their elders. Across many parts of Asia, development has led to a loss of elephant habitat threatening the survival of this species. No wonder why Komali is so tough! @wrs.ig supports programs like the Elephant Response Unit in Sumatra, Indonesia protecting elephants like Komali through reducing tensions between elephants and local community members.

Thinking back to one if my favorite wildlife moments today, on #worldrhinoday. We were so fortunate to come upon this black rhino at sunset on our way back to camp in Namibia. I think it was just enjoying the sunset too.
As wildlife filmmakers and photographers, there's some amazing moments that take you by surprise. This is one of those moments. After finishing filming all day in the park, we hurried to get back to camp before the park closed, not really anticipating that we might run into this beautiful animal. The lighting was perfect, the evening was perfect, and it was one of those moments that after filming with this black rhino for a good amount of time, I had to just sit back and watch it through my own eyes and enjoy the moment.
It's a strange feeling staring into the eyes of an animal that might not be around for your grandchildren... Hopefully by seeing photos of these animals it can inspire you to help make a change, in any way possible.

This adorable creature is a ring-tailed cat @fortworthzoo. Their scientific name translates to ‘cunning little fox’, although this species is actually a member of the raccoon family. Unlike raccoons, ringtails have long, slim bodies and a much longer tail. Their movements are like a cross between a ferret and a fox. They are incredible climbers and can descend trees and rocks head first by rotating their hind feet by 180 degrees! This species is common and widely distributed from central the United States to northern Mexico and adapts well to disturbed areas. They can also survive in hot, arid climates with limited access to drinking water. To see another photo of this adorable ring-tailed cat follow @joelsartore
Photo by @Shannon__Wild A Verreaux's Sifaka I photographed in Madagascar in the classic ‘dancing’ pose it’s known for when on the ground. Its body is so highly adapted to an arboreal existence, on the ground its only means of locomotion is hopping.
