Two orphaned rhinos--Maju and Raja--are on their way back to the wild in northeast India, after several years under the care of the Assam Forest Department (AFD) and International Fund for Animal WelfareWildlife Trust of India (IFAW-WTI). Covering a 450-km journey from one UNESCO World Heritage Site to another, the two will be a part of the crucial repopulation programme in Manas--that lost its entire rhino population to poachers.

Cameroon’s elephants: weep not too long, we need you to act.

Faceless poachers and faceless elephants.

One group scurrying away with their bloodied tusks, hoping to sell their grim booty to another faceless middle man in a dusty corner of the world; the other group lying dead, tuskless, simply faceless.

Four bear cubs were brought to the International Fund for Animal Welfare bear rescue center from the Central Forest Nature Reserve in Russia; three females and one male.

The tourists walked in the buffer zone of the reserve alone without the reserve staff.

They were too near the den not knowing it.
