Photo by @amivitale I'm thrilled to be kicking off the first in a series of talks with environmental and conservation photographers at @southamptonartscenter tomorrow, July 11 at 7pm, cosponsored by @icp Learn more and get tickets by clicking on the link in my profile. Here, a mother West African giraffe nuzzles her calf inside Niger's Giraffe Zone, a government-defined region where giraffes and humans co-exist. There are only 600 West African Giraffe in existence so the government of Niger with a team from the Giraffe Conservation Foundation ( @giraffe_conservation ) and Sahara Conservation Fund worked to create a satellite population by moving eight of them to Niger's Gadabedji Biosphere Reserve. The translocation will help ensure bolster the chances of the subspecies' survival. All are doing wonderfully in their new home.

I was a peace corps volunteer in Niger from 2006-2008 and we worked closely with the govt and GCF in preserving the last few of these herds of giraffes. The guides had noting but respect and love for their animals. I’m happy to see you helping them into the spotlight.
