Top 25 Photographs from the Wilderness #8

Explore the wilderness with us… Within the next 10-15 years we will see the last-remaining wilderness area on earth dominated by the demands of growing human populations and undermined by accelerated climate change. When the earth’s last wild places are gone, all we will have are fenced off protected areas dependent on constant intervention to persist and marginalized by the demands of sustained development in emerging markets. Guides, rangers, researchers, ecotourists, photographers, artists and conservationists around the world apply themselves everyday to sharing, studying, photographing, writing about, protecting, conserving and celebrating the “wild” with their guests, co-workers, colleagues, and local communities. These amazing photographs are a window into their world, a world where the lions, elephants, orangutans and leopards still reign supreme and we can dream of that perfect morning in the wilderness.

 

Ranger Diaries and The Bush Boyes have teamed up to bring you the “Top 25 Photographs from the Wilderness”. These stunning photographs are selected from hundreds of submissions and are intended to bring the beauty, freedom and splendor of the wilderness to as many people as possible around the world. Please submit your best photographs from the wildest places to the Bush Boyes wall or Ranger Diaries website, and stand a chance of being featured in the “Top 25 Photographs from the Wilderness” published each week. This initiative is all about SHARING and CARING about wild places. Please “Like” this blog post and share this link with as many people as possible… So begins the “Ranger Revolution”… Anyone can be an “Honorary Ranger” if they share and care about the wilderness, stimulating positive change for wild places around the world… Join the “Ranger Revolution” now!

“One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am – a reluctant enthusiast….a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.” ― Edward Abbey

The forest herd, by guide Etienne Oosthuizen. “Buffalo herds drift through the Lower Zambezi flood plains like nomads. Moving through the Winter Thorn forest on their way to the Zambezi river to quench their thirst. They come from the vase open plains that lie along the Zambezi escarpment. This cycle plays out each and every day, but as the winter goes deeper into dryness they tend to linger longer at the water’s edge before returning to the foothills. I captured this group, which were part of a much larger herd of about 500 animals, waiting in a forest clearing. I did not expect this channel to form, parting the herd for this big bull to walk through. He was kicking up dust as he walked. A magical moment...” (Etienne Oosthuizen  / photographicafrica.com)

Pride of lions attack honey badgers, by James Haskins. “We have all heard the stories about how tough this little animal is, but until you witness it first hand, it is hard to believe. These lions came across a pair of honey badgers late in the afternoon. All the young lions gave chase immediately and had soon caught the youngster. The mother (seen in this picture) fought back - she tried bravely to try and save her cub. She was out numbered eventually the lions tried to surround her and she darted down a burrow to escape. During all this both badgers were spraying scent to try and deter the lions. The smell was powerful, but did not seem to discourage the lions at all as they took turns to try and dispatch the small badger. This went on for more than 30 minutes. The little badger kept fighting, kept growling. The lions took turns to bite and pull at the badger, but they could not kill it. We eventually left the scene with the badger still growling (but unable to move). This is an amazing animal indeed and my respect for honey badgers has grown immensely since this sighting.

“Every year, my brother (Chris Boyes), Pete (“the Nare”) Hugo, Giles (“Prince William”) Trevethick and I (Dr Steve Boyes) cross the Okavango Delta, top to bottom, on mokoros (dug-out canoes) to survey the distribution and abundance of wetland birds, advocate for World Heritage Status, and share this amazing wilderness with accompanying scientists, explorers and special guests. My wife, Dr Kirsten Wimberger, joined us for the first time this year. No one will forget what happened on the 2012 expedition…”

In 2013, we are embarking on the Okavango River Expedition. This will be a 1,750km odyssey down the Okavango River from the source near Huambo (Angola) all the way down the catchment, across the Caprivi Strip (Namibia), and into Botswana to cross the Okavango Delta via one of our planet’s last untouched wilderness areas. Our objective is to support the Okavango World Heritage Project and achieve UNESCO World Heritage Status for the Okavango Delta and the entire catchment. See: http://www.okavangofilm.com/
