#Regram  @kirstenalana : today was the culmination of several weeks of work for @amarula_official that began with a trip to Kenya where I met @paula_kahumbu and her colleagues from @wildlifedirect which The Amarula Trust supports with their #DontLetThemDisappear  campaign. It was amazing to reunite with her today in my home city where #Amarula  sponsored a life-sized ice sculpture of an elephant which melted as the day grew warmer, a symbolic representation of what will happen if we do not protect these gentle giants and stop poaching. It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to participate in this campaign and though I have been paid to do it, I find I've never had my heart so moved by any job I've done before now. When the day was almost over and the ice sculpture began to break apart from the melting, I found I was almost as upset as I was when I first began to understand how dire the situation is for the African Elephant. So beginning with this project, I'm marking a new chapter in my career where I will be dedicating as much time as I can to causes such as this one. I'm not interested in being political, I simply want to do as much good as I can with whatever time I have left. I hope you will continue to join me and for those who began to follow me years ago only interested in travel - be assured there is much travel still planned. After all, the world is a big place and there are many people + animals + issues that need attention all over the place. #BeTheChange  #GiveBack  #MadeFromAfrica  🌎🌍🌏 Oh and if you want to get involved - I've placed a link in my profile to 6 ways you can help #SaveTheElephants  🐘

One elephant is killed every 15 minutes in Africa for its ivory. With only about 400 000 elephants left in the wild, the species could disappear by 2030. To raise awareness, #Amarula  has released limited edition bottles without their iconic African Elephant. Let's make the ivory trade disappear, not our elephants. Ivory poaching stops with you. #DontLetThemDisappear  #MadeFromAfrica  @amarula_official

Um elefante é morto a cada 15 minutos na África por seu marfim. Com apenas cerca de 400 000 elefantes deixados na natureza, as espécies poderiam desaparecer até 2030. Para aumentar a conscientização, #Amarula  lançou garrafas de edição limitada sem o icônico elefante africano. Vamos fazer desaparecer o comércio de marfim, não nossos elefantes. A caça furtiva de marfim pára com você. #DetLetThemDisappear  #MadeFromAfrica  One elephant is killed every 15 minutes in Africa for its ivory.

Happy World Elephant Day. I know I don't want to have a future where my babies can't see 'ewephants' as they call them. Go hang out with ellies and see if you don't fall in love with them like I did. Let's make sure we #DontLetThemDisappear  . I also dropped 2 videos in the past 24hrs on my YouTube. All shot in Amboseli. One is a collab with @the_mentalyst. Please check em out. Link is in Bio. .

Happy #WorldElephantDay ! I can't think of a better day to publish my blog post about my trip to Kenya with @amarula_official where I had a life changing experience seeing these magnificent creatures up close in person in their natural habitat. It amazes me that poaching of these majestic animals is still very much a prevalent threat in this day and age but the sad truth of it is that it is. At the current rate of decline these animals may become extinct by 2030😭 Link in profile to read about my experience and what you can do to help ❤🐘🐘#amarula #madefromafrica #dontletthemdisappear #elephant #animallover #kenya #africa #amboseli #savetheplanet #wildlifedirect #wildlife #natgeo #travelphotography #dametraveler #namethemsavethem

To know me is to know I love elephants! They are very intelligent beautiful creatures! In many places they are at risk because of the ivory trade! However it's not just Africa that elephants are abused, other countries enslave them. They should be with the Wild&free #Repost  @amarula_official (@get_repost) ・・・ Join the worldwide movement to make sure it’s the ivory trade that disappears, not our elephants.

WORLD ELEPHANT DAY TOMORROW 🐘🐘 📸: @Truthslinger - I know there's a lot of talk about saving elephants but you may wonder, what could you do as an individual?! I have a few suggestions. . •Have you ever seen elephants in the wild? I suggest you do. Amboseli is one of the worlds best place to see ellies in the wild like they were supposed to be. So chill and majestic. Seeing them like this is a humbling experience that's bound to make you fall in love with them. •Obviously, don't buy any ivory jewelry or whatever. (I suspect y'all know this but one can never be too sure!) •As cute as it may seem, don't go petting or riding ellies. This is not their purpose here and a lot of cruelty goes into breaking them for you to make that cute Instagram 'goals' photo. •Support organizations that work to research & be at the forefront of legislation against ivory trade, like @wildlifedirect. . This is a short but sure way to start. I love these giants and every time I'm i see them in the wild I fall more in love with them. Maybe you can too. Let's love our resources so we #DontLetThemDisappear . . @amarula_official is also one of the brands that is represented by an elephant and does much toward working to save elephants everywhere. Thanks for bringing me in as a part of this adventure. . #Amarula  #MadeFromAfrica

I have not yet had the opportunity to connect with an elephant, like get up close and personal with one, but I have certainly learned a lot about them. Such as that elephants behave very similarly to human beings in there self awareness, there emotions, their ability to show empathy, their complex societies and a number of other observations which signify the intelligence of these majestic beings. I have also learned that every 15 minutes an elephant disappears and up to 50 000 elephants are poached for their ivory each year. By 2030 elephants could be extend. Tomorrow, 12August is World Elephant Day, Let's raise awareness about the plight of elephants so that not only we can have the opportunity to connect with them but also our kids.

I'm borrowing words from @mariselerm to share with you what we learned about the #Maasai  while in Africa with @amarula_official because the way she summarized it is better than anything I've been able to write and I've been trying, so from her: "The Maasai of Kenya carry a heavy responsibility as part of their culture and heritage. They believe they are the custodians of wildlife and nature, living to protect our natural heritage. Elephants are their forefathers- beings to aspire to and to respect. The Maasai believe we should strive to be more like elephants - peaceful, strong and wise with strong family connections." As #WorldElephantDay  approaches on August 12, and in the news the world seems to be spinning rapidly out of control, I'm thinking of that last sentence in particular. I wish we as human beings would be more peaceful and would be more driven to choose wisdom over emotion. I wish we would stop getting in our own way placing profit and fear over all other concerns. 🐘 I'll be in NYC on World Elephant Day showing my support for @paula_kahumbu & @wildlifedirect as they continue the fight to end illegal poaching and if you're interested in joining in, keep an eye on the #Amarula  feed for information about their public events. 🐘 #DontLetThemDisappear  #MadeFromAfrica

El fruto de Marula es destilado y luego madurado durante dos años en barricas de roble francés, para luego infusionarlo con una suave crema. Esto es África en una botella. #madefromafrica

Ivory poaching for the use of elephant tusks are the main reason why elephants are hunted and are endangered. Ivory is used for items that further aid human enjoyment. Is this fair? Is it fair that elephants are killed for someone to wear something as simple as a necklace ?! Let's stop this injustice together. 📸 @richardhaubrich #DontLetThemDisappear  #Amarula  #MadeFromAfrica

Opportunities are like sunsets, if you wait too long, you'll miss them. Make the most of every opportunity you're given, it could turn out to be the best thing you ever do. Thank you @amarula_official for inviting me to be part of the anti-ivory poaching campaign #DontLetThemDisappear . @nadiajaftha and I were facing #Kilimanjaro  while @truthslinger captured this photo during sundowners with the #Amarula  team. Looking forward to my next trip to Kenya. #MadeFromAfrica  Keep an eye on social media for #WorldElephantDay  on 12 August. More information on @wildlifedirect & @Paula_kahumbu. Thank you @instacptguy for the edit 😄🙌

They are ready for Friday too it looks like 😍 Look at these beautiful creatures 🐘 Once you get a taste of something like this, it's hard to go.

Feeding time with mama in the Amboseli. In Kenya, we've grown up seeing ellies. Some of us haven't even seen one in real life (which amazes me). Maybe because we know we could always just drive 5hrs from Nairobi and see ellies in Meru, Amboseli, Samburu etc. But what if you couldn't anymore? Would it make us care more? 🤷🏾‍♂️ . #DontLetThemDisappear  #Amarula  #MadeFromAfrica
