Here is a photographic appreciation of African wildlife in order to raise awareness for endangered species throughout Africa.
For several reasons, there are currently numerous endangered animal species, many of which are native to the African continent. For example, there are only 5000 Black Horned Rhinoceroses left in the African wilderness, and that number is dwindling. This tragic fact is due to the presence of Rhino poaching. Unfortunately, the issue of wildlife endangerment in Africa expands far beyond just the Black Horned Rhino; there is an abundance of African species which have been declared either endangered or vulnerable.
Within the last several years, Noah Wali and I have both had the opportunity to travel to private game reserves in the South African wilderness and view some of these animals in their natural habitats. As people who have been able to observe these animals in the wild, we truly appreciate the beauty of these animals and want future generations to be able to do the same. However, as it stands, many of these species may go extinct if awareness of this issue is not raised. So, we would like to share photographs that were taken on our trips of these animals as an effort to raise awareness for wildlife endangerment and to exhibit the magnificence of these animals.
