These are the moments that leave you in complete awe... ❤️🐘❤️🐘❤️ There are no words to describe the magic of seeing these wild animals happy & alive. ✧

On my long transit home home from Namibia, I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation from a man sitting next to me at the airport… Words that brought me to tears and made me realise the hard reality of the situation that is currently happening in Africa. I’ve heard stories about these issues before but never have actually been in the presence of someone who has been involved directly and taken part in trophy hunting. I sat and heard an American man’s voice which continued for over an hour describing in detail the ways in which he killed and shot a number of innocent African animals. The type of guns he used, the distance he was from each animal and the disgusting amount of money involved in this industry, an industry built on an unexplainable choice to murder wild African animals all for their own pleasure. ✧

My heart broke, tears ran down my eyes as I asked myself “What kind of world do we live in?” “How as human beings can we allow this to happen?”. Our wildlife suffers enough with over-human population, extreme loss of natural habitats, poaching, climate change and other human forced pressures on our planet – and then there is trophy hunting, something which I just cannot and will not ever understand. I’ve heard all the ridiculous reasoning behind why it happens and why some parts of Africa allow it to continue. I know this is a much more complex issue but unfortunately it always seems to come back to money. “money” a concept which humans created and is obviously seen as more valuable than the life of a beautiful animal. Animals we should be cherishing and helping to protect in every-way possible, our wildlife has already drastically decreased in the last few decades. ✧

What drives someone to choose to do this is something I will never understand. It fills me with anger and pain all at the same time and I want to do everything I can to try and stop such a horrific industry. My hope is to bring attention to the reality of an industry that still appears to be thriving #changeiscoming

Namibia...✨🧡 The rust-red dunes, bleached white pans and deep blue skies —This landscape symbolises more than the country's vast, dry and uninhabited expanses, these are the places on our planet that are currently under-threat. ✧

Namibia has been classified as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change in the world, with the landscape being particularly in danger to natural hazards like droughts and floods. The country faces the possibility of significant agricultural production loss, where more than 70% of the population directly depend on food security for their survival. The last year is believed to be one of the worst, with many parts of the country not receiving significant rainfall as of yet, and indicating a further risk towards a severe drought situation. Ironically when rain does fall, it is expected to be much heavier, increasing the risk of heavy flooding within an overall drying climate. ✧

Since Namibia is home to several different eco- regions ( tropical, semiarid, desert), these particular challenges posed by climate change will vary by region. The decline in water availability, increasing temperatures due to higher evapotranspiration, and changing patterns of rainfall will all impact the country’s water resources and overall wellbeing of both the ecosystems and the people who live in these communities. ✧

Over the last few years I have developed such a deep connection with this country, the landscape and it’s people – I feel privileged to have visited such a place, although at the same time it dawns on me what the future will hold. All of our choices have an impact and it’s a sad reality that the choices made by the developed world are the ones that will impact the most vulnerable communities on our planet. By bringing awareness to these issues I hope we can try to understand how interconnected our world really is and with each and every choice we create a ripple effect. 🖤

Dreamy mornings high above the Namib Desert...✨🧡💫 Existing for at least 55 million years, this is one of the oldest deserts in the world.

Fragmented colours & patterns as the light moves across these ancient rock formations...✨🧡 From above this land transforms with the sun and sky, a landscape filled with endless stories connected deep within the earth. ✧

I have always been intrigued by the geology that makes up our planet and the ways in which we as humans value our natural resources. The region of Northern Australia holds some of the most incredibly rare gems on our planet - diamonds. An ancient geological process creates these diamonds deep within the earth over billons of years. Historically diamonds have captured the imagination and inspired humans for centuries. During the period of the Ancient Greeks and Romans diamonds were thought to be tears of the gods and were often described as tiny fragments fallen from our stars. With the current state of our planet, leading diamond producers work hard to control and minimise their environmental impact. They are actively working on programs aimed at reducing energy usage and carbon footprint. By focusing on capturing carbon dioxide through a process called ‘mineral carbonation’, certain types of mined rock can act like a sponge, taking carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and locking it away in safe, non-toxic solid material. ✧

In ancient times diamonds were once considered to be living beings that embodied celestial spirits. Our mineral-rich earth historically holds so much significance both physically and spiritually for us humans. In our current times it is more important than ever to consider the ways in which we value and use our natural resources – We all have an impact on the world around us, so it is crucial for leading industries to continue to improve and support these environmental initiatives. @realisadiamond #RealisRare #sponsored #TotalClarity

The glowing ancient landscape of Australia.✨🏜 The colours of our land and sky as the sun starts to disappear below the horizon highlighting every surface of rock with a orange glow. These rocks hold so much power – intertwined with cultural beliefs and the creation stories which surround so much of this expansive land in Northern Australia. ✧

Recently I’ve been curious to understand more about our earth, the geology that makes up our planet and the value behind how we are using our natural resources. Northern Australia is home to some of the most incredibly rare diamonds on our planet. Our magical earth produces these gems deep in her core where an immense pressure transforms carbon into diamonds, a process that takes over 1-3 billion years when volcanic eruptions bring them to the surface. Leading diamond producers recognise that the process behind the industry is complex and like many actions on earth can affect our planet's air, land and water. However, diamond mining is less harmful to the environment than other types of mining as it does not make use of toxic chemicals. Despite the environmental risks, the industry has a relatively small footprint on the land due to the compact size of their operations. Investing significantly in conservation efforts, they protect three times the land they use for mining globally and are committed to water conservation and recycling – with on average 83% of water used in diamond recovery being recycled.

Our world is full of so much wonder… On a geological timeline we as humans have existed on our planet for such a small amount of time. The incredible rock formations which form our earth and are hidden throughout the many surface layers of our planet, are created from ancient geologic processes. This occurs gradually over millions and billions of years, yet are imperceptible in our lifetime. Understanding where our resources come from and the processes behind them are more important now than ever before. Our home only has finite resources, making it crucial for us to carefully consider our lifestyle choices and the ways in which we can protect it for future generations. @realisadiamond #sponsored #RealisRare #TotalClarity

Es.cap.ism - The tendency to escape from daily reality. ✨❤️💫

Es.cap.ism - The tendency to escape from daily reality. ✨❤️💫

For as long as I can remember I have been captivated with light. Forever following the sun and the magical qualities it holds. Drawn to the fleeting moments just before sunrise, where there is a stillness on the horizon....✨

Midnight moon-light...✨🦓🌝 Apologies for my recent silence here, I’ve spent the last month travelling through Namibia, Africa. With limited service and very little connection to the outside world it has been refreshing to have time to sit still, disconnect and emotionally process my experience. It’s been such an adventure, filled with many heart felt moments & I have so much to share from this incredible journey over the coming weeks.
