Sometimes I am lucky and a tiny something just catches the corner of my eye… And then…a wonderful surprise reveals itself!

Northern White Rhino Suni dies at 34

There are now only six northern white rhinos left in the world. Suni was one of the last two breeding males in the world and no northern white rhinos are known to have survived in the wild. Consequently the species now stands at the brink of complete extinction, a sorry testament to the greed of the human race.

This is tragic news from Ol’ Pejeta conservancy in Kenya….

This is Maya, one of the beautiful souls I get to photograph at Fauna. While Maya certainly had a horrendous beginning to her life, she is now cared for with compassion, love and respect. This is not the case for many chimpanzees still living behind bars.  This week the #NonhumanRightsProject presented to a packed courtroom at the New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, in Albany, NY, for the Matter of the Nonhuman Rights Project v. Lavery, 518336 – better known as Tommy the chimpanzee’s appeal hearing.Everyone should be aware of these important and ground-breaking court proceedings for animal rights…http://www.nonhumanrightsproject.org/2014/10/09/inside-the-courtroom-at-tommys-appeal/
