Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation in the strongest terms condemns the recent killing of a critically endangered Black Rhino in Namibia, by Mr. Corey Knowlton, for a hunting trophy.
The word ‘Conservation’ means the following:

Far enough away (could be 5 or 6 miles as the raven flies) to be of no concern for our safety, near enough to set our nerves on edge, wildfire is our new reality. (more…)

The Colorado Plateau is a pretty dry place. A desert to most. Maybe 8″ of precip in many areas. The water, when it comes, moves the meager mineral soils in surprising ways. Gravity, wind and capillary action can make a plain rock wall into a canvas of beauty that would be at home in a fine art gallery. (more…)
