phofish's Instagram Photo - 🐆 Onça Pintada | 🐆 Jaguar 📽@stevewinterphoto @natgeo
I am working on a @natgeo Jaguar story. Here is a jaguar running to a caiman it hopes to eat for dinner. Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid

My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world.

Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water.
If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the JAGUAR and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them.
So if - We Save Big Cats we can help Save Ourselves.

National Geographic launched the Big Cats Initiative to raise awareness and implement change to the dire situation facing big cats. Please visit CauseAnUproar.org to find other ways to become involved to save big cats!

I took this photograph of American flamingos roosting in the full moon at the Rio Lagartos Biosphere Reserve on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. This incredible wetland area is one of the world's most unique wetlands because of its hypersalinity. The flamingos come here in great numbers to feed, nest and reproduce and more than 43 000 have been counted on the broader Yucatan coast. This wetland, mangrove and forest area is protected because of the flamingo - so everything ABOVE the water - like the jaguars, iguanas and birds and BELOW the water - the mangroves, fish, rays, dolphins, and nesting sea turtles are all protected because of this amazing RED bird!! Visit Rio Legatos today to catch these flamingos and other incredible wildlife!

Cheetah cubs with mom behind them. Cheetah’s, the world’s fastest land animal are losing numbers rapidly.
There are only 7,100 left in the wild. Habitat loss is the #1 reason for the decline.
Also hunting of their food, and turning wilderness into agriculture or livestock production.
The pet trade is also a factor. 2/3 of the cheetah population live outside protected areas
as cheetahs need to roam. These areas need to be friendly to wildlife with prey species 
protected for these predators - or we face a world without these magnificent creatures.
Scientists desire the cheetah to be re-classified as endangered, which will help them.

The Forests and Grasslands where they live provide all living creatures with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans provide the rest. And Forests and Grasslands give us 75% of the fresh water we need to live.
If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the Jaguar and Puma.

Here's a shot I took of a spotted hyena in South Africa's Timbavati while on assignment for @natgeo magazine while working on a worldwide leopard story (December 2015). While trying to get a shot of a female leopard and her two cubs this hyena triggered my camera! The Timbavati is an important refuge for species like this hyena, lions and leopards which are facing increasing pressure from poaching and conflict with livestock farmers across much of sub-Saharan Africa. In all the reserve and its neighbouring properties comprise an area of 1 800 square kilometres and this connects to the massive Kruger National Park (19 485 square kilometres)! We need to find pragmatic solutions for human-wildlife conflict and the bushmeat crisis in Africa. By saving big cats and other large carnivores we can save entire ecosystems. National Geographic's Big Cat Initiative is leading the way in developing tools to help people and large carnivores co-exist in harmony.

animal2016march's Instagram Photo - @Regrann from @natgeo - @natgeo @stevewinterphoto - More Black Rhinos arrived yesterday - are in their bomas and are being released over the next few days.
Rhinos are returning to Rwanda for the first time in over a decade! The last one was seen in 2007 but this week, in a historic move, the conservation group @AfricanParksNetwork along with the Rwanda Development Board moved the first 10 Eastern black rhinos from South Africa to Rwanda where they were released today into @AkageraPark - one of 10 parks managed by African Parks. Rhinos are under serious threat across their range due to the illegal trade in rhino horn. Fewer than 5,000 black rhino remain in the wild, of which 1,000 are the Eastern black rhino subspecies. Up to 20 Eastern black rhino will be translocated by African Parks over the following weeks, restoring hope for the species, and solidifying Rwanda as a conservation leader on the continent. Follow @africanparksnetwork to watch this translocation unfold, and the return of rhinos to Rwanda.

@natgeo @stevewinterphoto I've been photographing and filming cheetahs with my assistant @alexbraczkowski in the southwestern grasslands of South Africa this week. New research led by Sarah Durant and colleagues suggests there may be as few as ~7100 cheetahs left in Africa, and that if their populations are to survive, they need good protection inside national parks to offset losses in community areas where they clash with farmers! Did you know that cheetahs have good hunting success! These two males along with one other female ate 80 blesbuck, nearly 100 springbuck and some hartebeest calves in just five months!

National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop conflict between big cats and livestock and they even monitor big cats numbers with camera traps.

#repost@natgeo (@get_repost) ・・・ @natgeo @stevewinterphoto I've been photographing and filming cheetahs with my assistant @alexbraczkowski in the southwestern grasslands of South Africa this week. New research led by Sarah Durant and colleagues suggests there may be as few as ~7100 cheetahs left in Africa, and that if their populations are to survive, they need good protection inside national parks to offset losses in community areas where they clash with farmers! Did you know that cheetahs have good hunting success! These two males along with one other female ate 80 blesbuck, nearly 100 springbuck and some hartebeest calves in just five months! National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop conflict between big cats and livestock and they even monitor big cats numbers with camera traps.

Animals have emotions just like we have-kids hang out and play like these 2 cubs.. Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water.

If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the Jaguar and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards.

I am working on a worldwide @natgeo Jaguar story (coming out in the December 2017 issue of @natgeo magazine). Here is a young jaguar which looked up at my camera - taking a break from a meal! Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from the US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid @bertiegregory

BOOM!!!!!! Look at this sequence of a jaguar swimming, diving and hunting after a caiman on the banks of the pantanal river, Brazil! This was shot as part of my worldwide @natgeo jaguar story (it comes out December 2017!). Jaguars are the most incredible swimmers and are very comfortable in water! We need to realize deep in our hearts that animals like this jaguar have emotions too. If we can treat them better - maybe we could find some empathy inside of us to treat each other better also.

We need to fight for the right of jaguars to live - peacefully and without being killed for the traditional medicine market, and other trade. Help stop the demand for endangered species used in this practice! “When the buying stops, the killing can too” #wildaid
Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families, 
they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. 
They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. The forests and grasslands of big cats give us 50% of our oxygen and 75% of fresh water. If we can save big cats we can help save ourselves!
