workingwithwildlife Say hello to my little friend! Her name is Yami and she is an egg-laying mammal. The platypus is one of the most unusual creatures in the animal kingdom! With a paddle-shaped tail like a beaver... a sleek, furry body like an otter... and a flat bill and webbed feet like a duck. Oh Yami you so random! #Platypus #ZoosVictoria #HealesvilleSanctuary 2d

workingwithwildlife Check out this fabulous ranga! "In what terms should we think of these beings, nonhuman yet possessing so very many human-like characteristics? How should we treat them? Surely we should treat them with the same consideration and kindness as we show to other humans; and as we recognize human rights, so too should we recognize the rights of the great apes?"

workingwithwildlife Today I saw such an important screening at the Melbourne Film Festival. In Racing Extinction, a team of artists and activists expose the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. This film widens the lens from ocean life to all life, crafting a thrilling, impassioned call to action for the future of the planet. From illegal trade in wildlife to the carbon emissions threatening our way of life, Racing Extinction is an eye-opening big-screen spectacle as entertaining as it is inspiring.
It's better to light one candle than curse the darkness.

workingwithwildlife Just like human fingerprints, a zebra’s stripe pattern is unique to the individual. The skin of a zebra is black. Does that make its stripes white? #animalkingdom #zebra #BringingTheWorldToAfrica #VolunteerSA #LivingWithBigCats #VolunteerSouthernAfrica #workingwithwildlife #lionking Contact me: danielle@volunteersa.com ️ 3w
  •   renee.jo.ridgway Ive always wondered how their colouring evolved. Would it actually help them camouflage? Or make them a target? 3w
  •   workingwithwildlife It does seem like they are badly camouflaged, but when they are in a herd the zebra’s stripes merge into a big mass and make it hard for predators to single out individual animals! Pretty interesting 3w

workingwithwildlife It's World Lion Day! What better day to recognize all those who possess the strength, grace and bravery to stand up for others, to keep fighting for as long as it takes, and to roar even when they only have a whisper left. Here's to the lion-hearted who every day are helping to shape a kinder world for these amazing creatures and for all animals. In honor of #WorldLionDay here is my favourite big cat Subby the King #5ForBigCats #CauseAnUproar #BigCatConservation #BigCatInitiative #gvi #gvilimpopo #gvitravel 4w

workingwithwildlife Sheba's cubs were lucky enough to be born at a beautiful sanctuary where they will grow old with their pride. But some lion cubs aren't this lucky. Canned hunting is a heartbreaking and fast-growing business in South Africa, where thousands of lions are being bred on farms to be shot by wealthy foreign trophy-hunters. Please do your research to ensure that you are joining reputable volunteer programs! #BringingTheWorldToAfrica #VolunteerSA #LivingWithBigCats #VolunteerSouthernAfrica #workingwithwildlife #lioncub #cannedhunting Contact me: danielle@volunteersa.com ️ 1mon

workingwithwildlife Imagine seeing these big beautiful eyes! The leopard is the most elusive and secretive of the big cats. They are extremely difficult to trace and locate in the wild. What a breathtaking shot! #BigCatConservation #BigCatInitiative #bigcats #leopard 1mon

workingwithwildlife Today we celebrate International #TigerDay! A special day to remember how lucky we are to share our planet with these incredible big cats! Loss of habitat, illegal poaching and animal human conflict are three of the biggest issues facing the dwindling number of remaining wild tigers. One step you can make today is to buy forest friendly products, those that don't mean chopping down tiger habitats to plant unsustainable tree crops like palm oil plantations. #bigcats #tigers #savetigers #BigCatConservation #BigCatInitiative #palmoilinvestigations 1mon
