Are zebra stripes for temperature regulation, predator avoidance or to deter biting flies? Recent research supports the first explanation. An alternative theory Is that they’re all Newcastle United fans. But then any animal worth his salt would prefer cricket, so we can discount that theory as nonsense.. #zebras #zebra #zebrasofinstagram #conservation #science #evolution #zimbabwe #camouflage #naturephotography

Black Death... The African or Cape buffalo must be the World’s most charismatic bovid. They play a key ecological role through their bulk grazing and by providing a major dietary component for lions. However, being aggressive, well armed and frequently occurring in large groups, they are often successful at defending themselves against the aforementioned big cats. They also pose a serious risk to humans when wounded. As I learned to my peril a few years back when a buffalo with a snare wound charged me and put a massive dent in my Land Rover.

A leopard never changes its spots. Which is convenient, because it means that the unique spot patterns can be used to identify individuals.. #conservation #leopards #leopardsofinstagram #bigcatsofinstagram #wildliferesearch #catsofinstagram #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #addictedtonature #kwazulunatal #southafrica #africananimals #spottedcats #pantherapardus

Campaign against the consumption of illegal bushmeat!

The poaching of wildlife for bushmeat is one of, if not the, most serious threat to lions in Africa. Poaching for bushmeat results in reduction in prey populations and results in direct mortalities of lions in snares. The LIon Recovery Fund supported a campaign by @wildlifecrimeprevention in Zambia designed to raise awareness among citizens of: a) the illegality of bushmeat sourced from poachers; b) the health risks associated with eating bushmeat; c) the impacts of eating illegal bushmeat on Zambia as a country – because poaching jeopardises wildlife-based tourism. We applaud this innovative approach and also the impressive, pro-active engagement from the Zambian authorities to tackle what is one of Africa’s most serious conservation challenges.
