🥇 Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and orphan rehab program by @terrybogan

Hi hivers! Just wanted to share some pics and a bit of history about the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya 🐘🦏🦒🐗 We were lucky enough to visit the Nairobi nursery in January before the world went into lockdown. It was such a heartwarming experience ❤ and they deserve a shout for all the exceptional work that they do! Especially in this crazy COVID climate.. They are still protecting and caring for all the wildlife in the East African region. The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya is the world's most successful elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation program.

🥈 Reasons Why a Weekend in Annecy Ignites Creativity by @discoveringarni

The Pearl of the French Alps. Annecy is the capital of the Haute-Savoie department of the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region in South-eastern France. It lies at the tip of Lake Annecy and is at a crossroads between France, Italy, and Switzerland. Throughout my design career overseas, I met and was blessed to have worked with talented architects and interior designers from almost every corner of the world. What fascinated me, however, was that I had met a handful of exceptionally creative designers and all of them had one thing in common. They all hailed particularly from this region, in the charming city of Annecy.

🥉 Visiting Dupinga River and a Side Trip to El Pobre Tanawan by @afterglow

The Philippines is a mountainous state located at the Earth's equator making it a tropical country. It boasts one of the longest mountain ranges in the world, the Sierra Madre (not to be confused with the Sierra Madre in Mexico). The Sierra Madre is the longest mountain range in the Philippines with a length of 690 km (430 miles) it is located in the east part of Luzon making it a great wall that blocks strong winds of typhoons coming from the pacific ocean. The north end of Sierra Madre is located at the municipality of Santa Ana in the province of Cagayan. Its south end is located at Bondoc Peninsula in the province of Quezon. Mountains are synonymous with rivers, the Philippines has approximately 412 principal river basins, 28% of them are located in protected watersheds. Cagayan River is the longest river in the Philippines.
