[Raills au milieu de la savane] 🚂 Pendant le safari l’oeil est attiré par des centaines de moments à saisir sur l’instant grâce aux animaux sauvages présents en nombre. Mais il y a aussi d’autres moments où l’on peut « relâcher la pression » et observer l’environnement global dans lequel on est. 📷 Au moment de ce cliché par exemple, je ne me rendais pas compte encore en 2011 que ces petites pauses dans l’action pouvaient permettre de se poser, de faire passer une intention/émotion et composer plus facilement que durant une action soudaine. Avec le temps et les années, ce réflexe de balance, entre l’action et l’observation posée, est devenu naturel tout en restant inconscient. #kenya#visitkenya#kenya🇰🇪 #kenyatourism#tsavo#tsavoeast#tsavoeastnationalpark#safari#safarikenya#damrphotography

She made her kill after she slunk into the bushes where the kudu were grazing. Silently, she picked one out then pounced. Our eyes upon her made her nervous and when she'd caught her breath, gracefully she hauled her catch out of sight.
Seven black rhinos are reported to have died shortly after they were relocated from Nairobi and Nakuru National Parks to the Tsavo East National Park.
The seven were part of a crash of 12 rhinos that had been moved following a translocation effort by Kenya Wildlife Service, supported by WWF.
It is not known what happened to the rhinos which are some of the most endangered species in the world and questions will be raised over what exactly happened.
“We are extremely concerned to hear reports that seven black rhinos have died in Tsavo East National Park after being moved from Nairobi and Nakuru National Parks as part of a translocation programme by Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS),” said Mohamed Awer, CEO of WWF-Kenya.
“Translocating wild animals of this size is extremely challenging and not without risk, but black rhinos are
under enormous threat so efforts to try and better protect them, such as translocations, are crucial for
Mohamed Awer said they will bring in experts to investigate and determine what exactly happened to the rhinos.
“At a time when three rhinos are poached on average a day for their horns, any losses are particularly
painful. WWF is in contact with KWS to confirm the full situation and offer our support in launching an
urgent independent assessment of what happened.”
According to Earth Watch, as a result of extensive poaching, there are only about 540 rhinos left in Kenya.
