Readers’ wildlife photos

December 15, 2022 • 8:15 am

It’s time for me to appeal again for photos, as I have only about a week’s worth of reserves. Send ’em in if you have good ones! Thanks!

Today we continue a series of photos by Rosemary Alles; the first part is here, and the details I gave before are below. There will be one more installment of this series:

Today’s photos come from Rosemary Alles, who lives in South Africa and works for a conservation organization that partners with local people. Her narrative and captions are indented, and you can enlarge the photos by clicking on them.

I am an American living (temporarily) in SA. These pics were taken from my small studio in rural South Africa and while within the greater Kruger region. I am originally from Sri-Lanka, a war-torn nation just to the south of India. My family and I immigrated to the west to escape a violent civil war in Lanka.You can find more about us (the work our org does) here. We focus primarily on indigenous women/children at the intersection of conservation.
