Go on little fella! With the encouragement of his mother, this little cub plays in the snow for the very first time as the family leaves their den in Wapusk National Park, Canada.

@lewa_wildlife _"It’s not always that we’re able to help wildlife in need, and some cases, such as this one, can be heartbreaking.

A few weeks ago, a herd of elephants entered Lewa through our northern gap. Part of the herd was a young, sickly and emaciated female elephant - closer inspection revealed she had a broken leg that made it difficult for her to fetch food and water, which was worsened by the ongoing drought across northern Kenya. The drought had meant that even healthy animals wereΒ struggling to survive, and here on Lewa, we had started to feed lactating rhinos to supplement their nutrition.

Our resident vet Dr Mutinda explains:
β€œWhen we got to her, it was obvious this was going to a hugely challenging case. I did not try to immobilise her, as she was already very weak from malnutrition and dehydration. Her broken leg was clearly something we couldn’t fix, and her body condition had deteriorated drastically. We tried to give her water, we tried to help her get up but she was too weak. We tried all we could, but she did not make it.” Luckily, her calf was old enough to care for itself, and it rejoined the herd.

This man acted quickly when he saw this pelican with a fishing lure and line wrapped around its mouth.

It's a touching moment as Dr Jane Goodall (@janegoodallinst) hug of thanks from chimpanzee 'Wounda' who she nursed back to health from near death. 'Wounda' being realese into the wild.

magnificent Roger when he was alpha male.
The red on his neck is his male scent that he rubbed on females and trees to mark his territory.
