Happy World Elephant Day! To celebrate we’re sharing one of our favorite photos from The Nature Conservancy's 2018 Photo Contest. This gorgeous lady was photographed by George Dian Balan in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, making it a perfect choice today. That’s because TNC supporters like you are helping @nature_africa keep a corridor open between Amboseli and Kilimanjaro national parks, enabling elephants to reach life-saving water and food in the long dry season. With drought becoming more frequent, saving this corridor is more critical than ever.

"The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color." - Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting 📷: Charlie Peek

Happy #NationalOysterDay ! Oyster reefs are natural breakwaters. They stabilize shorelines, build wetlands, and reduce runoff and suspended sediment in the water, thus increasing water quality. We're using the best available science to mitigate the effects of climate change, and oyster reef restoration is part of the solution. 📷: Debbie Crane/TNC

The Nature Conservancy has protected over 132,000 acres in the mountains, including places like this. Grassy balds are unusual community types found between 5,200 and 5,800 feet on dome-shaped summits and ridges, which create ideal habitat for plants and animals that thrive with cool temperatures and lots of sunlight. 📷: Margaret Fields/TNC
