Photo by @paulnicklen After 17 years with National Geographic, wildlife conservation photographer and cinematographer Paul Nicklen (@paulnicklen) felt compelled to start something new. “I wanted to see immediate impact through photography,” explains Paul, who co-founded SeaLegacy (@sea_legacy), a collective of visual storytellers who document the biggest issues facing our oceans today. “My goal is to use my camera to connect people to the species of animals that need our help.” On #WildlifeConservationDay, Paul offers this message: “I want people to understand that animals are all part of a complex ecosystem. You cannot dismiss an insect while pouring your love and attention into panda bears and baby white harp seals. We need to realize that entire ecosystems are connected, from the very top to the very bottom.” Starting today, when people search for a hashtag associated with harmful behavior to animals or the environment, they will see a content advisory screen. We are committed to fostering a safer, kinder world both on Instagram and beyond.

A Glimmer of Hope for a Species: "In 2016 I spent several weeks in Africa with my long-time guide and good friend Njinu. During these weeks, Njinu shared a number of stories, but one in particular became etched in my mind. He told me about the last of a prominent species which was located in a private reserve in central Kenya. The story was tragic and it appeared to have a tragic ending—one that was soon to end in extinction. I couldn’t get it out of my head. I was heartbroken; here was another example of extinction at the hand of man. Later that month as I flipped through a magazine in the Nairobi airport, I found a detailed article and learned more about the critically endangered species Njinu was telling me about. He was right, the last 3 individuals of a prominent species were being guarded in a reserve in central Kenya, but the magazine article mentioned something he did not—a glimmer of hope. A group of scientists wanted to attempt a new procedure that could potentially save the species by producing babies, but only if they could raise the funds. In 2017, I went to the reserve and stood side by side with the last male of the species—to see for myself what was left but also to see if there was anything I could do. From all I can gather there is a glimmer of hope! I am excited to share this story with you in the coming months both here on social media and at our WALLS Signature Events. Leave a comment to receive your invite to the events.” —Benjamin Walls

Camouflaged lion waiting on the rains over Tsavo. Every time I take a photo like this I always hear about the “man eating lions” of Tsavo that got a taste for humans and killed so many people in the 1800’s working on the railway line through the park. Which is interesting because the film Ghost in the Darkness about these same lions was one of my favourite movies growing up, and I used to watch it on sleepovers with my friends. Looking back it was a pretty strange choice of favourite film to watch so many times... But also not really I guess, considering how things turned out 💛 #awakethelight#awesomeearth #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #liveforthestory #thisisafrica #whywecreate #everydayeverywhere #lonelyplanet #whyweadventure #recklessimage #africalove #natgeoyourshot #in2nature #climatechange #exploreheaven #endangeredspecies #earthfever #worthmorealive #onassignment #artofvisuals #wildlifephotography #wildlife #conservation #sceniclocations #alifealive #neverstopexploring #wildlifeconservation #wildlifeconservationday #protectwildlife
