Located in the Kalahari Desert of northern Botswana, the oasis is fed by Angola’s Cuito and Cubango Rivers. The delta is a wildlife paradise and home to many exotic animals like elephants, hippos, sitatungas, and African fish eagles. But the delta is in danger as Angola seeks to develop the upper reaches of the Cuito and Cubango. Increasingly, forests along the banks are being burned down for river access, hunting, and subsistence crops. With these growing pressures, the future of the delta is at stake. The Okavango Wilderness Project is rooted in this cause. National Geographic Society sponsored an intrepid expedition team to research and survey the headwaters and document the need to protect the ecosystem. This animated video will reveal some the team’s wildlife discoveries and the environmental concerns the delta faces—as well as the tricky business of conservation across political borders.

Flamingo Tries To Eat Tourists Hat

ID: 1496586

A cheeky flamingo has been caught on camera trying to steal a sun hat from a stunned tourist.

Holidaymaker, Bruna Gabriele Felisberto, was feeding the vibrant pink birds during a trip to Flamingo Island, on the picturesque Renaissance Island in Aruba.

The pretty brunette can be seen kneeling on the sand when one flamingo takes an unusual shine to her large black sun hat and begins pecking it.

Undeterred, Bruna continues feeding the flamingos and even manages to hold onto her hat.
