Had a full house last night at the Sydney Opera House for my NG Live presentation - #Sydney thanks for coming out, giving #5forbigcats and all the great feedback! I photographed this #baby #elephant with her mother in Sri Lanka while #onassignment for my upcoming @NatGeo story on #leopards, due out in the December issue. Every 15 minutes an #elephant is killed for its ivory. We need to make owning ivory an act unbecoming of a civilized people. We need to all become people who respect the lives of elephants and their right to walk this earth as they have for 1000’s of years - free and safe from harm by humans. Please check out the new @natgeo TRACKING IVORY cover story - incredible and important reporting by Bryan Christy with exceptional images by #BrentStirton. Here are some organizations that are making strides in protecting elephants: The Nature Conservancy in Africa (@nature_africa), The Nature Conservancy (@nature_org), The Northern Rangelands Trust (@nrt_kenya) Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife) http://wildnet.org/elephant-crisis-fund http://www.wildaid.org/elephants I’ve been touring with NatGeo Live, presenting my My Nine Lives talk about my experiences photographing #BigCats, many of which are endangered. 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 out more ways to become involved to save big cats! The link in my bio will take you right there. #5forbigcats @bertiegregory @nglive #nglive #ngwild @ngwild d #natgeowild @canonuk @zacuto @cameracorps @syrp_ @sachtler @leefilters @KEEN @pteclights @thephotosociety #NGcreative #onassignment #bebright #UNEEK #iamUNEEK #wildlifeconservation #inthefield #wildlifephotojournalism #BCI #bigcatsintiative #kulusafaris #harithasl @andbeyondrangers @andbeyondsafari #zambi_wildlife_retreat #photooftheday #beauty www.kulusafaris.com @thebenbritton
