16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Happy Baby

In Krugar National Park a family of 30 elephants were passing. I saw this one baby elephant so happy and at peace. To me it is so important to give voices to those who don’t have one. Conservation has always been of much importance to me. Elephants have always been my favorite animal. They are such smart, kind, beautiful and gentle beings. I want elephants to be able to coexist with humans, and for poaching and killing of animals to stop. I am trying to create powerful visuals to turn reaction into action.
