Photographer Evan Schiller and his wife Lisa Holzwarth dedicate a big part of their lives to animals. They are passionate about saving Big Cats and other animals all over the world. By using writing and photography, the two hope to raise awareness about the plight of these animals.

This couple was on a game drive in the northern Botswana’s Selinda area when they experienced something amazing. They were taking photographs when a big troop of baboons came charging through the bush. Two lionesses were nearby, and what happened next stunned the photographers.

The father baboon’s heroism paid off. Once he bravely saved his baby, he made his way over to a shade tree and the rest of his troop. After a time, the photographers saw that he baby was safely nestled in his father’s arms, resting.

It’s hard to say what’s more impressive: the lionesses gentle decision to protect the baby baboon or his father’s incredible bravery and rescue mission. Share this unbelievable

…We have a tiny favor to ask of you. Government think tanks have teamed up with Social Media Companies and Google to censor independent thought and government criticisms, and the result has been catastrophic for independent media. Despite this, The Mind Unleashed has survived without hiding our content behind a paywall, because we value open and accessible information more than we value profits. Hopefully we’re wrong, but without your help we're afraid The Mind Unleashed will algorithmically disappear from the Internet.
