Before Everything

Many years ago before everything, and by everything I mean a forever changing world, I would walk in the late evenings alone with her at the orphanage. What I remember most about her was her soft gentle voice and her porcelain skin. I remember her humble home and how she would always fix her own dinner, and how you could stand on her front step and she would greet you with the same respect as senators and presidents. She was my idol and a mentor, but mostly a friend. What she has done for elephants in her lifetime is profound. My heart is certainly broken today and is with her family and the keepers who knew her in the same way. I think I will always feel her presence she was an incredible human. I hope we all honor her by waking up every day and be the very best we can be, and continue to fight for conservation and dignity for all humans and animals on this planet. 🐘

The LAZY PERSON'S Guide To SAVING The WORLD

End extreme poverty. Fight inequality and injustice. Fix climate change. Whoa. The Sustainable Development Goals are important, world-changing objectives that will require cooperation among governments, international organizations and world leaders. It seems impossible that the average person can make an impact. Should you just give up?

No! Change starts with you. Seriously. Every human on earth—even the most indifferent, laziest person among us—is part of the solution. Fortunately, there are some super easy things we can adopt into our routines that, if we all do it, will make a big difference.

Have a look at just a few of the many things you can do to make an impact!

#StopSucking 🌏🐋 
We use 500 million plastic straws every day in the U.S. Many of those plastic straws end up in our oceans, polluting the water and harming sea life. If we don't act now, by 2050 plastics in the ocean will outweigh the fish. One small change can have a big impact: #stopsucking on plastic straws.

#RaiseYourVoice 💋

Every day girls around the world are fighting for their freedom. This International Day of the Girl - join them and raise your voice: 1. Share the film and tell us what #FreedomForGirls means to you 2. Take action at http://www.globalgoals.org/dayofthegirl In 2015 when leaders signed up to the UN Sustainable Development Goals – the Global Goals - they made a promise – to empower all girls. There has been progress but we need to keep up the pressure. If we work together we can make sure world leaders deliver and every girl grows up healthy, safe, empowered and able to fulfil her dreams. This new film from director MJ Delaney featuring ‘Freedom’ by Beyoncé, calls for action on some of the biggest challenges girls face like access to education, child marriage and the threat of violence´ Last year we asked you to share #WhatIReallyReallyWant for girls and women – this year we want you to raise your voice for freedom.

One Planet 🌎

Of all the lions I have ever lived with this one is by far my favorite. My husband would always tell me you have enough pictures of lions, thousands. But this was a special lion, on a special day that can never be replicated or recounted again. I've always lived my life as a champion for wildlife especially lions. Fall in love with our planet. We only have one. Let World Lion Day, be everyday.

Saving Kenya's Giants
On 5th May the DSWT was contacted by both Richard Bonham of Big Life and the Kenya Wildlife Service Veterinary Department reporting an injured elephant. He was a magnificent giant tusker, and surprisingly for everyone not one of the familiar big boys known to this particular area, he was by all accounts a visitor to these parts.

She Is Perfect
lioness.jpg

Always the first lion I see in the morning and the last one I see at night. This lady has become a fixture in our lives. It's a privilege to wake up everyday and see her. I love this photo because it captures her perfectly. The same floppy seat, her full belly, and her relaxed glare. She is perfect.
