amivitale I’m honored to share my photos from the #DreamBigPrincess photography campaign! Mary Lengees is caring for orphaned elephants at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) the first indigenous-owned and run elephant sanctuary in northern Kenya. Mary is one of the first indigenous Samburu women elephant keepers in all of Africa. The sanctuary is helping to change the lives of the people in the community as well as the animals under their care. It was an incredible experience to spend time with Mary and learn what inspires her to dream big! From August 15-October 11, 2017, Disney Worldwide Services will donate US $1 for any public post of a photo using #DreamBigPrincess or like of such a post on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, for a minimum donation of US $500,000 and a maximum of US $1 million to Girl Up (@girlupcampaign), the United Nations Foundation’s program supporting adolescent girls’ leadership and empowerment.

Panda keeper Liu Juan looks after young panda cubs in the incubator room at the Bifengxia Panda Base. When giant pandas are born, they are tiny, only a few ounces, blind, and pink, with very few hairs but grow fast. By the time they are three months old they get to about 11 pounds and within the first year are about 88 pounds. 
I'm Ami Vitale (@amivitale) and this week I will share the incredible story of how China is saving its most iconic mascot, the giant panda from the brink of extinction. This journey turned out to be one of the most unimaginable explorations I've ever had. In a region where bad environmental news is common, the giant panda might prove to be the exception and is a testament to the perseverance and efforts of Chinese scientists and conservationists. By breeding and releasing pandas, augmenting existing populations and protecting habitat, they are on their way to successfully saving their most famous ambassador and in the process put the wild back into an icon.

The job of caring for baby pandas at China’s panda centers is high-pressure, due to the levels of care given to the babies and the attention paid to preserving China’s most popular mascot.

Chinese scientists and their international counterparts cracked the puzzle of successfully breeding pandas in captivity after decades of disappointment. Here a bumper crop of baby pandas walk in the grass at Bifengxia Panda Base in Sichuan Province, China.

amivitale Photo by @amivitale. Happy #WorldRangersDay! Josephine Rwanda, Lucy Lelemoyog and Rose Lelukumani are the first female wildlife rangers within the Kalama Wildlife Conservancy in Northern Kenya. Kalama is home to some of Kenya's most iconic animals, including elephants, leopards, Kudu, waterbuck, and more.  It takes guts, a passion for the environment, and nerves of steel to protect these endangered animals and the people living side by side with them. So much gratitude to all the #rangers for their sacrifices and selflessness.

amivitale Photo by @amivitale. A woman rides the elevator of death in Prague, also called Pater Noster which means our father since the elevators resemble a rosary...it's a loop of open cabins and dates back to the 19th century. You hop in and out but can't ever stop it.. Amazing little detour on our @tasteofprague  tour which I totally recommend to anyone who loves food and history. We learned about and experienced the history and revival of real Czech cuisine along with fascinating stories you'll never get in a history book. I'm here teaching a workshop this week for @natgeoexpeditions #natgeostudentexpeditions
