    1. The purpose of this section is to exactly do that, show the animal in its full greatness and how they truly are in their own natural surroundings.

  1. These photos are just truly amazing. How can poachers not see the beauty in these live animals. People today now have a conscience and the trophies from these animals are not wanted by the majority. Keep up the great work.

  2. Extraordinary photos… In my eyes, nothing compares to the beauty of the beasts… Be a protector not a destoyer!

  3. Those photographs are stunning! Contests for a great cause, such as this one, is exactly what Africa needs to raise / spread awareness and unite those with the same vision: environmentally and socially responsible living. I look forward to seeing more of these photographs!

  4. Inspiring selection of photographs serving to highlight the critical issue of poaching in Africa. In southern Africa, rhino poaching is rampant, while in East Africa, elephant poaching is apparently increasing at an alarming rate.

    For more, read this disturbing article in The Spectator about elephant poaching in Tanzania and the involvement of the Chinese: http://www.spectator.co.uk/essays/all/5863872/will-china-kill-all-africas-elephants.thtml

  5. I normally squint through one eye at your page. As the graphic photo’s of animals being slaughtered, I find hard to view.
    But today I relish every picture sheer delight to view.
    Thanks for the collection.

  6. These are great! In the future, can you please also put the species name and location where the image was made? It would make the content so much more conservation oriented. Thanks – DeLene

  7. Don`t remember seeing so many beautiful photos for so long.
    iI wish I were rich ,I would have the lot.A a place large enough to hang them.
    Thanks so much for sharing,I`m transfixed.

  8. it’s unbelievable to see so many magnificent photos on one site. I think of the huge amounts of time all these photographers spent watching, waiting, listening and breathing in the surrounding smells. Aren’t we so lucky to still be able to capture this to share,,,,,thanks sooo much, truly satisfies the soul. From the sw coast of Australia

  9. Loving wildlife is the eternity of man.
    MODERN MAN THOUGH LITTLE SENSITIVE ON THE WILDLIFE OF THE PRESENT EARTH WITH THE SELFISH NEED BUT OBVIOUSLY THEY WILL UNDERSTAND AS AND WHEN ………….. BUT….BUT THAT MAY BE TOO LATE TO TAKE CARE OF.

    THANKS TO THOSE LOVER LIKE THIS FORUM WHO CAME FORWARD AT THEIR TIME AND HABIT AND ADMIRE THEM WITH CONGRATULATIONS FOR THEIR DEVOTION TOWARDS THE CONSERVATION OF NATURE AND NATURAL RESOURCES.

  10. Oh, wow, what fantastic photographs. Such beauty in Africa and such talent and patience to capture it on film. The only way it should ever be captured.

  11. Dori – these photos are STUNNING! Having lived in Africa for over 45 years I feel instantly connected seeing these precious creatures in their natural environment, the light and texture in these pictures… they are truly awesome, and even though Canada is now my home, I feel like I’ve just had a time away in Africa :) Thank you and the people who contributed these photos SO much!

  12. My heart and soul are lifted after viewing these beautiful photos of God’s unique creation. thank you so much for putting up for viewing. They have made by day.

  13. As a child, I was lucky to see some of these animals in the wild. Looking at all these fantastic pictures has driven me back to that time. Many many thanks!
    But it also made me want to share a thought with you:

    In Africa, most people are so poor we can’t imagine, without enough food or water or shelter or confort. Some wild animals worth money – so people hunt them. Some others destroy their crops and cattle – so people hunt them. And others are just frightening – and so people hunt them…
    Isn’t it the same that our «civilization» did elsewhere, for instance in Europe?

    Money is nowadays «god» (wasn’t it allways?) – and that’s the problem.
    BUT HOW CAN WE CHANGE THAT?
    (I wish I could better express my idea in English).

  14. These photos brought me to tears! The people who took these pictures are truly gifted! I could never pick a favorite because they are all so incredibly special and the subjects are all true wonders of the world! I can’t wait to return to Africa…where I know I belong!
