@stevewinterphoto @natgeo Today is World Rhino Day!! Rhinos are being massacred for their horns. Last year 1054 rhinos were killed in South Africa alone. Rhino horn has been found to have no medicinal value. It is made of keratin, the same tissue as our hair or nails - so chew your fingernails - and SAVE THE RHINO! Check out: Save the Rhino and Rhinos without Borders Follow me @stevewinterphoto to see more images of big cats @natgeo @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #savetherhino #ivoryfree #wildaid @wildaid #worldrhinoday2017 #endpoaching #photooftheday @eiainvestigator #rhinoswithoutborders #racingextinction #startwith1thing #savetherhino #rhino #africa @africanparksnetwork @natgeo #instawild #instashooters #wildlife #wildlifephotojournalism @ngwild #natgeowild @thephotosociety #NatGeoCreative #onassignment #wildlifeconservation #inthefield #wildlifephotojournalism #BCI #bigcatsintiative #photooftheday #beauty #lion @africanparksnetwork@leonardodicaprio

@stevewinterphoto @natgeo 2 leopard cubs next to mom in Timbavati, South Africa. 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. 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. Please visit CauseAnUproar.org to find out more about Build a Boma and other ways to become involved to save big cats!

@natgeo @stevewinterphoto The Cheetah is the fastest land animal on earth and Africa’s most endangered cat. Cheetahs purr like house cats - which is one reason they are under threat, as the cubs are either captured or raised in captivity to be sold as pets to the very wealthy, though only one in six survive the journey to their new prison. As with all big cats the number one reason for their decline is habitat loss, then comes human wildlife conflict where livestock owners kill predators in revenge killings if the predator kills their livestock. Finally comes the illegal wildlife trade, the pet trade is hitting cheetahs hard as is the trade in their skins and bones. New research led by Sarah Durant and colleagues suggests there may be as few as ~7100 cheetahs left in Africa, and that if their populations are to survive, they need good protection inside national parks to offset losses in community areas where they clash with farmers! This is a similar emotion that we as humans feel. Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families, they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can 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. National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop conflict between big cats and livestock and they even monitor big cats numbers with camera traps. Visit https://www.nationalgeographic.org/projects/big-cats-initiative/ to find out how you can help save big cats today, and remember by saving apex predators we keep ecosystems balanced and healthy!

@stevewinterphoto @natgeo Nature is perfection. It gives us the air we breathe and the water we need for all life. I am working on a @natgeo Jaguar story. Here is Scarface running after a caiman which he did not get this time. Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid @bertiegregory My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. Animals have emotions just like we have. Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water. If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the JAGUAR and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them. So if - We Save Big Cats we can help Save Ourselves. Please visit CauseAnUproar.org to find out other ways to become involved to save big cats! #follow me @stevewinterphoto to see more images from my work with @natgeo and Thanks!! @stevewinterphoto @natgeo @nglive #nglive @natgeochannel @natgeowild @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #fursforlife #BCI #bigcatsintiative #startwith1thing @pantheracats @pantanalsafaris #CanonUSA @CanonUSA #reddigitalcinema @africanparksnetwork @sanctuaryasia @reddigitalcinema

@stevewinterphoto @natgeo Leopards are the world's most widely distributed big cat, but did you know that they've disappeared from an estimated 63-75% of their former range globally. The biggest threats facing leopards in Africa include the illegal skin trade, wire snare poaching and human-leopard conflict. National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop lion-cattle conflict and monitoring big cats numbers with camera traps.

@natgeo @stevewinterphoto Tigers are an endangered species that need our help in a big way! There may be fewer than 3500 individuals left in the wild and scientists believe breeding populations occur in only eight countries and 40 population strongholds across Asia! My tiger work for @natgeo magazine over the past 20 years has taken me to document tigers in places as wild as Kaziranga National Park in India and northern Sumatra in Indonesia and I see the same threats facing this iconic species: poaching, deforestation and an increasing body part trade in China! When the demand for wild and captive tiger parts stops so too will the poaching of this beautiful cat! #wildaid Check out my Nat Geo Tiger book - "Tigers Forever” written by my wife Sharon Guynup who is a Global Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington DC. http://www.tigersforeverbook.com We need to unite in saving this iconic big cat that is an ambassador of wild places and human cultures! Tigers are also the most important apex predators in forests across Eurasia and when you lose them from a forest, deer and pig numbers can increase and the forest loses an important ecosystem engineer!
