🦍 We Animals 🦍 ・・・ Yesterday was #EndangeredSpeciesDay – a day highlighting the plight of wild animals across the world at risk of extinction. . Wild animals are at risk because of us – from trophy hunting and poaching, to habitat disruption and destruction – our abuse of nature is putting their lives in jeopardy. . Organisations are working tirelessly to protect these animals and their fragile habitats. This work includes tackling wildlife crime, community education, conservation zone creation, and the rescue and rehabilitation of those animals who have been injured or orphaned. Thanks to the dedicated individuals behind these organisations, there is hope of a future for #wildlife. . 📷: Black Mambas community education program. South Africa, 2016.
