Sri Lanka - Wildlife - Elephants

This photo taken on March 24, 2011 shows elephants crossing a river during their daily outing from the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka where the world's largest captive group of elephants, who where orphaned, rescued, injured or abused, are cared for. It was announced in February, 2011 that Sri Lanka is planning its first ever census of elephants as the animals increasingly come into conflict with villagers, saying a head count would start in August, 2011 to aid better planning of conservation and minimise clashes between elephants and humans. Sri Lanka's elephant population is believed to have dwindled to about 4, 000 from an estimated 12, 000 in 1900. AFP PHOTO / William WEST / AFP PHOTO / WILLIAM WEST

Australia-Animal-Crocodile Featured William West Image


A 700 kilogram crocodile called Rex - who is one of the world's largest crocodiles - cruises around his enclosure after receiving his first feed after emerging from three months of hibernation at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo on October 3, 2012. Throughout winter, it is common for crocodiles to enter a period of inactivity where they survive on their existing energy stores inside their body but once the weather starts warming up, so does their appetite ? to indicate their need to replenish their energy. Rex, who has been a resident of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo since 2009, was a so-called ?rogue crocodile who was captured and placed into a crocodile farm near Darwin in the Northern Territory when his taste for local pet dogs drew him too close to the human population.

Topshots-Australia-Animal-Monkey-Colobus Featured William West Image


Melbourne Zoo's newest primate baby, a three week-old Colobus monkey, is held in the arms of her mother Clover, in Melbourne on June 29, 2011. Keepers have not been able to determine the sex of the newborn monkey which is pure white and won't display any black markings until it's several months old. Black and White Colobus Monkeys, native to Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania and Kenya, have seen their populations suffer from the fur trade during colonial times, but now the greatest threats to their survival are the loss of their habitat and the bushmeat trade, the large-scale hunting to supply meat to towns and cities.
