There are about 50,000 muscles in an elephant’s trunk, made up of six muscle groups, and no bones. This compares to 639 muscles in the entire human body! The closest thing we have to an elephant’s trunk is our tongue. Elephants use their trunks to breath, drink, eat, smell, snorkel, wrestle, communicate, touch, feel, hold, grab and pull.

“But perhaps the most important lesson I learned is that there are no walls between humans and the elephants except those we put up ourselves, and that until we allow not only elephants, but all living creatures their place in the sun, we can never be whole ourselves.” - Lawrence Anthony

The Dutch superstar shares how Knot On My Planet came to life and the importance of stopping the ivory trade. "24-hour surveillance is needed," she continues, "It's a war against the poachers."

Tanzania 🦓 Africa’s most famous Serengeti National Park was first on our travel list! We flew there by the bush airplane and were greeted by our cool guide who prepared ‘welcome’ champagne and snacks for us to enjoy! 🍾🤗 - С чего началось наше путешествие по Танзании? 👉🏻 С самого известного заповедника Африки «Serengeti National Park» ✔ Долететь до него можно только на маленьком самолете в аэропорт Серонера (единственный заповеднике). На выходе из аэропорта, который напоминал больше колониальное поместье, нас уже ждал гид рейнджер на сафари-джипе🤘🏻, с аперитивом из шампанского и закусок 🍾 Дальше - еще круче! Дорога в отель - уже полноценное сафари 😅 Пока добирались, успели заехать на речку, где живут гиппопотамы, семейство слоников, антилоп, зебр и жирафов 🦒🦓🐘

While the ivory trade is now banned in China, elephant poaching continues- a strong reminder that for endangered statuses and bans to have meaningful impact, countries need to demonstrate strong political will and commitment to strengthen governance, address corruption, improve law enforcement, support community and education initiatives, share intelligence to target the black market and improve collaboration across organisations. Hong Kong, who has a separate governance structure from China, has confirmed they will ban their trade by 2021 and will also need to follow suit. It’s still a fair way away, but all in all, it's a sign that things are changing, one state at a time. In the best case scenario, the sentiment will cascade throughout Asia and spur more countries to solidify their commitment to saving elephants- especially in the South East, where demand for ivory is growing- and to take concerted action to rid the loopholes within governments that are allowing elephants to continue dying on our watch. Hang in there beautiful ellies, change is coming. ________________________________ A few centuries ago, there were about 26 million elephants. Today, there are fewer than 400,000.

Elephants in the Zoo, on their ‘captive’ diet live around 17 years 😢 against 56 in the wild, on their natural diet 🌎! ❕FYI Russia sold to Indonesia 11 fighter jets 🛩 worth $1.14 billion in exchange for Palm oil... Are we also on a new ‘captive’ diet? 🤔 - А вы знали, что 🐘 слоники в зоопарках живут почти в 3 раза меньше, чем на воле ! 🧐Ученые считают, что основная причина - специальная диета для неестественной среды обитания... 🌎 #savetheelephants #knotonmyplanet

Everybody in van was talking and getting out of heat but I scanned. Can't snap the animals if you can't find them. Then, I see this group stalking in the tall grass. I love this pic because it helps me remember that rush, awe. #masaimara #lion #cnntravel #bbctravel #wildaid #worthmorealive #conservation #wildlife #wildlife_seekers #wildlifephotography #animal #animallover #nature #naturelovers #natureaddict #natgeo #nationalgeographic #safari #kenya #africa #african_portraits #africanamazing #picoftheday #photooftheday #instagood #instanature @doutzen @elephantcrisisfund #knotonmyplanet @wildlifeplanet @wildaid #backpacker

Must-visit places in Kenya 🧡 • Visit Masai Mara park to look for the wild cats, it’s the best area for cheetah viewing 🐆 (that’s where I’m going next time) • Visit the Samburu village (amazing semi-nomadic tribe) 🙌🏻 • Visit the wild life conservations, Kenia boosts one of the best ones! My fav: Sheldrick elephant orphanage & Black Rhino Sanctuary (Ol Pejeta & Solio Conservancies) 🐘🦏 • Consider climbing Mount Kenya (second-highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro!) 🧗🏽‍♀🏔 Add your tips too! 🤗 - ‪‪Не знаете чем заняться в Кении? Сохраняйте этот пост 🧡‬‬ • Парк Масаи Мара, где самая большая численность гепардов 🐆 • Деревня Самбуру (удивительное полукочевое племя).‬‬ • Приют Дэвида Шелдрика – центр по спасению осиротевших слонов, а также Ol Pejeta – одна из самых больших популяций черных носорогов в Кении🦏🦏🦏 • Восхождение на гору Кения (вторая по высоте в Африке, после Килиманджаро!).‬🏔 ‪‪Ставьте ♥️, если давно мечтаете побывать в Африке 😉

This photos makes me feel inspired, in awe, amazed at the natural world and a little intimidated! Photo courtesy of @eastafricanwild. Black rhino numbers are as low as 5000 in Africa, largely as a result of poaching. They now depend on antipoaching units to keep them safe. The team at @forrangers and @savetherhino provide essential training, supplies and support to the antipoaching teams across kenya as well as financial supoort to the families of those killed whilst protecting these and other mega species. In august this year I will be running in the @beyondtheultimate forrangers ultramarathon. A 230km footrace through northern kenya, semi self supported. My aim is to raise £2300 for these charities which will provide supplies to 4 antipoaching rangers for 1 year. Hoping to raise some much needed funds and also to raise awareness and inspiration for those following. Link in bio xx #forrangers #runlikeagirl #ultramarathon #rewilding #rhino #knotonmyplanet

The timing of this very flattering post from our friends @sav@savetheelephants is intriguing given what I do for a living and the state of affairs of my industry.....I can not wait however to meet him. #Repost @savetheelephants ・・・ The boys are back in town! Our Samburu-based researchers have just completed their monthly roll call and discovered several lone bulls have ventured back into the park after being gone for some time. At the top of the list is the handsome Bonnouvrier who, in full musth, seems to have his eyes fixed firmly on the First Ladies. Bonnouvrier is named after our friend @davidbonnouvrier -  the unstoppable force behind the #knotonmyplanet campaign and a valued leader in the Save The Elephants herd. Bonnouvrier the elephant was one of three new bulls seen roaming around Samburu and nearby conservancies recently. The other two are Kalacha, who was seen in Kalama conservancy, and the young bull, Goal, spotted bathing in a muddy swamp in Buffalo Springs. While it seems to be clear what Bonnouvrier's motivation was for returning, we’re unsure about the other two - fine dining, spa weekend or romance?  #ele#elephants #elephant #Samburu #monitoring #bulls #elephantcrisisfund.

@wwf @sav@savetheelephants ❤️Elephants are the one of the most intelligent animals. They are so beautiful, strong, smart and very kind. ❤️ Each year, more then 30,000 elephants are killed for their ivory. Who gave humans the right to think that they can kill?!...that they are stronger?!...These beautiful charms from #TiffanySafetheWild collection in support of the @savetheelephants ,where 💯% of the profit are donated to the @elephantcrisisfund to support anti-poaching, anti-trafficking and ivory demand reduction. Now the collection passed 1$ million in donations to the fund in just 3 month! So proud! @tiffanyandco #knotonmyplanet #bestvalentinesgift
