Victims of Yahya Jammeh regime in The Gambia
For 22 years, President Yahya Jammeh of The Gambia, West Africa brutally ruled the smallest country on mainland Africa, until he lost the December 2016 election to Adama Barrow. Only now are many of Jammeh?s human rights violations coming to light, and only now can people speak freely of what they went through. The portraits (an ongoing project) are of people from a cross section of Gambian society who fell afoul of Jammeh?s brutal security machine, including government employees, police officers, activists, human rights lawyers, businessmen, environmentalist, musicians and journalists. 
Rhino Relocation from South Africa to Botswana
---- The rhino population in Africa has fallen by more than 95 percent since 1900, to just 21,000 southern white rhinos and 5,000 black rhinos; 80 percent of those animals are in South Africa?s game reserves and on ranches. In a response to the dire situation that is facing rhinos in Africa, with rhino poaching at an all-time high, concerned conservationists teamed together to create Rhinos Without Borders (@rhinowb). RWB plans to relocate 100 white rhinos from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana, where poaching is almost non-existent.
