In the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, giraffes have recently had their listed status changed to β€˜Vulnerable to extinction’ – their numbers in Africa have dropped hugely by around 40% in just the last three decades alone. World Giraffe Day hopes to bring much needed attention to this remarkably iconic and special species πŸ¦’πŸƒβ€οΈ #giraffe #worldgiraffeday #wildlife #wildlifevolunteering #conservation #volunteer #volunteerinafrica #volunteering #tra#tra#travelafrica #responsibletravel #gapyear #gapyeartravel #volunteerafrica #travelabroad #volunteerabroad #makeadifference #loveafrica #travelafrica #africanamazing #africanadventure #african_portraits #igscwildlife #ig_africa #igscglobal #africanature #beautiful_destinations #wonderful_places #travelafrica #EarthCapture #keepitwild

Zambia’s most important resource is extremely overlooked. The most valuable thing produced in Zambia is children but opportunities for education are beyond abysmal. Pray for change. Churches operate more schools than the government and offer cheaper education than β€œfree” government schools. But they are just as overwhelmed by massive enrollment, lack of teachers and materials as the government schools. Consider giving towards education in Zambia. Kids at a community school in Kanyama. β€οΈπŸ–€πŸ§‘πŸ’šπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡² #facesofzambia #actionzambia ▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️▢️#zambia #african_portraits #travelafrique #makeportraits #blackisbeautiful #hum#humanity_shots_ #street_vision #ig_africa #zambianportraits #lusaka #lensculture #educateafrica #people_infinity_ #fujifeed #fujixt2 #humanity_shots_ #portrait_perfection #beautifulzambia #everydayafrica #africa_amazing #everydaylusaka #communityschool #fujifilm_street #street_perfection #capturestreets #ig_zambia #everybodystreet #super_africa

I’ve been crazy busy on an exciting new film project so I have been insta MIA but I couldn’t miss #worldgiraffeday and #tbt without posting a couple of my favorite giraffe pics. These Rothschild Giraffes are some of the most critically endangered animals on the planet. There are only about 1,670 Rothschild Giraffes left in the world. About 650 of them reside in Kenya. We can’t take the existence of these animals or the protection of their habitat for granted. #silentextinction #giraffe #kenya
