Photo by @stevewinterphoto This tree-climbing lion cub along with its 7 siblings and family was poisoned last week in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda. We need help in saving the last ones in the area! Please spread the word and help us on: https//www.gofundme.com/treelions and click on my Instagram story to find out more! Lions in Africa may number as few as 18-30 000 and these lions were killed because they ate cattle. Farmers in the region live off a few dollars a day! Poisonings and poaching are the main threats to lions not only in Uganda but across their East African range. Most lion populations in East, Central and West Africa are declining so the time for us to act is now! Please consider helping us. @stevewinterphoto @natgeo @natgeowild

There are only two populations of lions in Africa which regularly climb trees and this is one of them! Lions here are thought to climb trees to escape the heat, escape tsetse flies and to see their food better from above. our journey with the lions and a mission to count them on @natgeo and @natgeowild over the next few weeks! follow me @stevewinterphoto for more images of big cats and our natural world and thanks! @natgeo @nateowild @leonardodicapriofdn @africanparksnetwork @stevewinterphoto @reddigitalcinema @CanonUSA @thephotosociety @natgeocreative

@natgeo photo by @stevewinterphoto One of my favorite images! of a female leopard in a tree at night under the stars. She has an impala in the tree that she is feeding on. She is waiting for an opening so she can jump down amongst 6 hyenas scattered around the base of the tree - hoping she will drop some of the impala - but she wants to be sure - that she does not end up as dinner either! There are nine sub-species of leopards on earth, occurring from the southern tip of South Africa's Cape mountains to the island of Java in southeast Asia. The leopard can live in true deserts, tropical forests and even in the Russian tundra where it drops to below 10 degrees celsius! The biggest threats facing leopards in Africa include the illegal skin trade, wire snare poaching and human-leopard conflict.

@natgeo photo by @stevewinterphoto A young leopard cub learning to climb - down! And it seems a bit wary. Just like we might be. This is so similar in many ways to us as humans! Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families. If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, we need to treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. Remember just as an example of the importance of their homes - the forests and grasslands. 50% of our oxygen comes from forest - the other 50% from the oceans. 75% of fresh water comes from forests, grasslands and mountains. So if we save big cats - we can help save ourselves. This was shot for my @natgeo Leopard story in the Dec 2015 issue of National Geographic Magazine. National Geographic launched the Big Cats Initiative to raise awareness and implement change to the dire situation facing big cats.

@stevewinterphoto @natgeo Down to the river for a drink. Taking a break from mating. Just 100 years ago there may have been as many as 500 000 lions which roamed the African continent but today there it is easinated that as few as 16,000 - 30,000 remain, and research by lion biologist Hans Bauer and colleagues suggests lions in much of west, east and central Africa will decline by 50% in the next two decades if something dramatic is not done! The biggest threats facing lions in Africa are poaching of their prey and retaliatory killings by farmers when lions eat their cattle! There is also an emerging threat of lions being used in Chinese medicine as tigers become rarer. @wildaid "When the buying stops the killing can too" We need to work together to save the king of beasts - lions mean so much to our culture, our evolution and to the remaining wild places we have on earth. National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative is working to build protective bomas for cattle farmers, increase protection against poaching on the ground and educate landowners on how to live with lions. Visit: https://www.nationalgeographic.org/projects/big-cats-initiative today to find out how you can do your bit for lions 🦁 Please watch a South African film on canned hunting by environmental film maker Ian Michler - http://www.bloodlions.org About 50% of the lions from lion farms end up in the Chinese bone and skin trade. me @stevewinterphoto to see more images from my work with @natgeo and Thanks!! @stevewinterphoto @natgeo @natgeochannel @natgeowild @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @africanparksnetwork @reddigitalcinema @CanonUSA

@natgeo @stevewinterphoto An elephant taking a drink then walking across the river in Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda The greatest single step taken to ensure the future of elephants in our world was the Ivory Ban recently enacted by China. Famous individuals in China like former NBA star Yao Ming have trumpeted WildAid’s mantra “When the buying stops the killing can too" The murder of elephants and other species for their parts needs to stop. Real community conservation that is based on the continued life of the species rather than it’s death can result in greater and more consistent economic rewards for the future of the local people and the species. With poaching still a problem throughout the world - PSA campaigns based on economics like @WildAid - WORK - and the numbers show that they WORK.

@stevewinterphoto @natgeo Phinda conservation and capture team looking at the lion situation before captures. In Majete Wildlife Reserve, a small park in southern Malawi with a devastating past, something miraculous is happening. By the early 2000’s the park had been completely hunted out – rhinos, elephants, lions, leopards, everything poached and only a few antelope remained. The forest was beginning to be felled for charcoal; only 12 scouts were employed, and not one single tourist had visited in the park in the prior three years, meaning not one single dollar had made its way into the park. But in 2003, the conservation organization @AfricanParksNetwork entered into a long-term agreement with the Malawian Government to manage the reserve and bring it back to life. After securing the park, they brought back rhinos in 2003, elephants in 2006, lions in 2012 and 1,200 other animals over the years. They built schools, delivered healthcare, prevented conflict, and worked closely with local communities to deliver other needed benefits. Fast forward just 15 years, and Majete has now been restored. Wildlife is thriving and since their reintroductions, not one elephant or rhino has been lost to poaching. Elephant numbers grew to over 400 last year, where some were moved to help repopulate another park in Malawi. More than 180 people are employed, and in the last year 9,000 tourists visited the park, half of those were Malawian nationals, and they brought in over $500,000 in tourism revenue which goes back to helping protect Majete and to local community programs. Today, more than 22,000 animals call the park home. And just last week, the first two, of what will be up to 10 lions, were translocated from Majete to help bring lions back to another park – Liwonde - in Malawi. Majete has become a source for wildlife and is helping to repopulate other parks in the country. @AfricanParksNetwork is living proof that well-run protected areas can deliver countless benefits for people and wildlife alike.
