Video by @alexbraczkowski and @stevewinterphoto Ugandan Wildlife Authority ranger Jimmy Kisembo examines the bones of Kogere, Murunji and their sister, a pride of lions poisoned around Easter this year. These lionesses and their 8 cubs climbed big euphorbia trees everyday and tourists from all over the world came to see them in Queen Elizabeth National Park. I was in the park earlier this year and was lucky enough to photograph these lionesses and their cubs. It is such a sad thing that Uganda has lost this incredible pride. My cameraman and big cat biologist @alexbraczkowski has started a gofundme to raise some money to build bomas and help reduce conflict in the village where they were poisoned. Please consider donating and telling your friends about these lions and this cause!

@stevewinterphoto @natgeo A male lion relaxing at night after a big meal. Two weeks ago the Kogere pride, an incredible group of 11 tree climbing lions were poisoned a few meters outside of Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda. @alexbraczkowski had been studying and filming these lions since October 2017. I was working with Alex and his team this year in the park. You may have read about this in the media. They were poisoned because they were killing cattle in Hamkungu village, just outside QE National Park. Alex started a GoFundMe page to help stop lion poisoning - to help raise money for collars and to build protective bomas for the livestock so the lions cannot get to them during the night. The farmers in this area live off of only a few dollars a day. Local people need to benefit from living with predators. The local ecotourism industry relies on these lions for tourism money which benefits the local community - so everyone - lions, humans and the ecosystem have suffered a great loss. Poisonings and poaching are the main threats to lions not only in Uganda but across their East African range. Most lion populations in East, Central and West Africa are declining so the time to act is now. Please consider helping: www.gofundme/treelions Just 100 years ago there may have been as many as 500,000 lions which roamed the African continent but today there it is estimated that as few as 16,000 - 30,000 remain, and research by lion biologist Hans Bauer and colleagues suggests lions in much of west, east and central Africa will decline by 50% in the next two decades if something dramatic is not done! The biggest threats facing lions in Africa are poaching of their prey and retaliatory killings by farmers when lions eat their cattle! There is also an emerging threat of lions being used in Chinese medicine as tigers become rarer. @wildaid "When the buying stops the killing can too" me @stevewinterphoto to see more images from my work with @natgeo and Thanks!! @stevewinterphoto @natgeo @natgeochannel @natgeowild @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @africanparksnetwork @reddigitalcinema @CanonUSA

@natgeo photo by @stevewinterphoto One of my favorite images! of a female leopard in a tree at night under the stars. She has an impala in the tree that she is feeding on. She is waiting for an opening so she can jump down amongst 6 hyenas scattered around the base of the tree - hoping she will drop some of the impala - but she wants to be sure - that she does not end up as dinner either! There are nine sub-species of leopards on earth, occurring from the southern tip of South Africa's Cape mountains to the island of Java in southeast Asia. The leopard can live in true deserts, tropical forests and even in the Russian tundra where it drops to below 10 degrees celsius! The biggest threats facing leopards in Africa include the illegal skin trade, wire snare poaching and human-leopard conflict. This was shot while on assignment for National Geographic Magazine (Dec 2015 issue) with.

@natgeo photo by @stevewinterphoto A young leopard cub learning to climb - down! And it seems a bit wary. Just like we might be. This is so similar in many ways to us as humans! Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families. If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, we need to treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. Remember just as an example of the importance of their homes - the forests and grasslands. 50% of our oxygen comes from forest - the other 50% from the oceans. 75% of fresh water comes from forests, grasslands and mountains. So if we save big cats - we can help save ourselves. This was shot for my @natgeo Leopard story in the Dec 2015 issue of National Geographic Magazine. National Geographic launched the Big Cats Initiative to raise awareness and implement change to the dire situation facing big cats.

Lions here are thought to climb trees to escape the heat, escape tsetse flies and to see their food better from above. our journey with the lions and a mission to count them on @natgeo and @natgeowild over the next few weeks! Thanks so much to Sam and Mustafa - we could not have done this without you and the UWA team! Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. Forest, grasslands and mountains give us 75% of the fresh water. If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the Jaguar and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, @LION, elephants etc. And the forests of Asia for the Tigers and and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them. So if - We Save Big Cats we can help Save Ourselves. follow me @stevewinterphoto for more images of big cats and our natural world and thanks! @natgeo @nateowild @leonardodicapriofdn @africanparksnetwork @stevewinterphoto @reddigitalcinema @CanonUSA @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @lionrecovery
