What a GIANT one 💙🐢 #didyouknow that the Leatherback Sea Turtle is 1 of 7 species of marine turtles in the world. It evolved around 100 million years ago and co-existed with the dinosaurs. The species is named for its characteristic leathery shell, which differs from the bony shells of the other 6 marine turtle species. Leatherback Sea Turtles are found in the temperate, subtropical and tropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. They are migratory animals, with adults travelling up to 18,000 km each year between their tropical or subtropical nesting beaches and temperate feeding areas. . Credit for this video unknown.

"This is my 6 month old sister, I love her a lot because she plays with me." -Rukhsar. At Tayaba we believe that health is wealth, it is necessary for us to make sure that people live a healthy life. The children in Tharparkar have to survive on dirty water. Their mothers have to walk for hours in the scorching heat to fetch water for their families. As there is no other water source available, the families have to drink the dirty water. With your help, Tayaba.org can provide them with h2o wheel that will make the journey easier. #Tayaba #SaveWater #WaterCrisis #Donate #walkforwater #h2owheel #cleanwaterforall #pakistan #inspiration #wateraid #girlpower #development #waterislife #impact #worldrelief #outreach #takeaction #conservation #purification #nonprofit #helpthemroll #charity #womenempowerment #waterscarcity #innovation

Heartbreaking news from @salishseaorcas 💔 || Meet Salish Sea orca J50 “Scarlet”. Born in December 2014, Scarlet may have entered the world with the help of two pod members “midwifing” her birth. Scars on the young orca led researchers to believe she was pulled out of her mother by fellow pod members. When Scarlet was just seven months old she stole hearts by performing over 60 breaches as her family entered the Salish Sea. Her incredible display allowed for an unprecedented number of photos, providing a solid foundation for her identity. Unfortunately, recent sightings of Scarlet show her looking emaciated, leading orca experts to suspect she may not survive. Because Scarlet has come to represent a positive future for the orcas, her loss would be especially devastating. Let’s hope she can find the chinook she needs to survive as soon as possible || Our wild orcas are dying. You can help save them. Donate or orca conservation efforts. Use your voice to raise awareness. Use biodegradable & eco-friendly cleaning supplies. Petition for government action to save these orcas & help the chinook salmon population. 🌊💙 ( Images: NOAA & Clint Rivers )

I love animals. And although I appreciate what conservations do, particularly for endangered species, I peer into their eyes and faces through the bars and see only prisoners.

hide and seek #vegan style. 🐼 . #peekaboo . . #Repost @natgeo with @get_repost ・・・ Photo by @amivitale. Twelve year old mother giant panda, Si Xue explores her enclosure at the Wolong China Conservation & Research Center for the Giant Panda in Sichuan Province, China. Because of their low-energy diet, pandas avoid stressful situations and exertion. It’s hard to imagine, but these animals were once as mythical and elusive as Bigfoot. They have been around for millions of years, but were only made known to the western world within the last century. The first panda was captured alive only in 1936. After years of research, scientists have learned how to successfully breed pandas in captivity. With an adult population estimated at more than 1,864 wild pandas and 500 captive pandas, they have been upgraded from endangered to threatened. In a region where bad environmental news is common, China is on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador. I have recently published my new book, Panda Love, featuring my long-term panda work made on assignment for National Geographic.

Starting tomorrow, over the next 6 days (up until my snake presentation at Bass Pro) I will be making a post everyday about one of Florida’s native venomous snake species! 🐍 In the meantime, here is a photo of me tubing an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake! Whenever we need to put hands on an Venomous snake, whether it be for medical purposes or to microchip, we tube them first. That way, the risk of being bitten is greatly reduced! • • • • #snakesofinstagram #snakesofflorida #crotalus #crotalusadamanteus #hot #venomous #savethebuzztails #conservation #education

Orangutans build nests to sleep in at the end of everyday. They vary in size and height up in the trees. in-fact for the rangers in national parks, the discovery of fresh nests is an indication of recent orangutan activity in the area! 🇮🇩❤️

#StopSharkFinning || Sharks are one of the most threatened species on the planet. It’s estimated that 100 million sharks are killed every year & 73 million of those are used for shark fin soup. Sharks fins have mercury levels 42x the safe consuming limit. There is no reason to kill these apex predators. Many of these sharks are thrown back into the ocean finless & unable to swim. It is cruel & unnecessary. Help us change that & stand up for sharks. Don’t buy any kind of shark meat or byproducts such as shark cartilage. Did you know that some skincare & makeup products contain shark liver oil called squalene? Be an informed consumer. Every little thing helps 💙🦈🌊 Check our our new “Stop Shark Finning” shirts in our shop. 20% is donated to shark conservation efforts

Will elephants survive poaching only to succumb to climate change? Not if you act today. Pledge to live sustainably and support defense of wildlife in the face of climate change. By 2030, water scarcity will impact as much as two thirds of Africa. This will increasingly put elephants, rhinos, apes, and other species in competition with people for water resources. If we wait until then to act, it will be too late..An elephant consumes about 30 to 40 gallons of water everyday to survive..TUNZA!

We love sharing good news. Earlier this week the House of Commons updated the Fisheries Act, which now positions Canada as a global leader in rebuilding fish populations and safeguarding their habitats. How are they doing this? In short: by protecting the flow of water. When we disrupt flow by blocking it with a dam or changing runoff with nearby forestry practices, we risk disrupting the entire ecosystem. This government has moved beyond restoring lost protections and has created a truly modern act that reflects the challenges facing watersheds.🐻🐟 • Nous adorons partager des bonnes nouvelles. Plus tôt cette semaine, la Chambre des communes a mis à jour la Loi sur les pêches, faisant du Canada un leader mondial dans la reconstitution des populations de poissons et la protection de leurs habitats. Comment s’y prendront-ils? En protégeant l’écoulement de l'eau. Lorsque nous perturbons le débit en l’obstruant avec un barrage ou en changeant le ruissellement avec des activités forestières à proximité, nous risquons de perturber l'ensemble de l'écosystème. Le gouvernement est allé au-delà de la simple restauration des protections perdues et a créé une loi vraiment moderne qui reflète les défis auxquels sont confrontés nos bassins versants. 🐻🐟 • 📷Steph Morgan #fish #fisheries #freshwater #oceans #water #waterflow #canada #fisheriesact #conservation #wwf #wwfcanada

On Thursday night Iceland made it 1/238. • • “The International Whaling Commission (IWC) instituted a global moratorium, or pause, on commercial whaling in 1986. Yet, Kristján Loftsson, CEO of Iceland’s only fin whale-hunting business, Hvalur hf (Whale Inc.), continues to operate, ignoring international outrage and the shrinking demand for whale meat. This year, after a two-year hiatus in hunting, the Icelandic government sanctioned the slaughter of 238 endangered fin whales. Those whales are dying right now, each one harpooned and dragged to a slow, cruel end. Economically, the hunt doesn’t make any sense. Iceland’s whale watching industry generates $20 million USD annually – far more than the disappearing whale meat market. It’s time for Iceland to choose tourism over whaling. ~ This work was performed under the authorisation n.0 XX-ORAC-2018 issued by the Government, on February 22, 2018 ~” • Speak out to #StopIcelandWhaling and join @Sea_Legacy @bluespherefoundation @oceanicpreservationsociety in #TurningTheTide by heading to the link in their bio or by going to: sealegacy.org/pages/iceland-whaling • • 📸 by Paul Nicklen | @paulnicklen • • • #iceland #finwhales #minkewhales #saynotowhaling #worthmorealive #wildlife #conservation #sentientbeings #whales #environment #nature #animals #species #criticaltooceanhealth #racingextinction #turningthetide #360fortheplanet #blue #ocean #sea #protect #endangered #awareness

With over 1,200 posts tagged #OregonShores on Instagram, we are able to view and share amazing photographs from local citizens and travelers who appreciate the beauty of our Oregon shores. One of those is Stephen Grace, who captured these Janthina janthina pictured here.. Known as the violet sea snail or the purple bubble snail, this drifting mollusk rides the world’s oceans by making a bubble raft to stay afloat as it stalks its prey, the Portuguese man o’ war and Velella velella. Also known as by-the-wind sailor, V. velella is a jellyfish-like hydrozoan (actually a colony of animals) shaped like a little boat that sails atop the ocean; scores of by-the-wind sailors are blown ashore in winter and spring.

Photo by @justinblackphoto Justin Black captured this incredible photo of a jaguar attacking a caiman in the wetlands of Brazil. Black was leading a group of photographs on a photo expedition through the region when he happened to witness the hunt. It was an eight-foot-long Yacare caiman being attacked by a 290-pound male jaguar. #animalsofinstagram #exclusive_animals #instaanimal #splendid_animals #wildlife_seekers #africa #animallovers #animalelite #conservation #safari #animalsaddict #adfricanamazing #animals #wildlifeplanet #african_portraits #africanamazing #wildlifelovers #animal_sultans #igswildlife #wildlifeaddicts #wu_africa #pets #love_africa #wildlifefreak

Last week, our team visited the DAR Coral Lab on O’ahu to discuss future projects and how we can work together to maintain a repository for Hawaii’s rare and endemic corals. Regardless of your location, you can contribute to coral reef conservation. How? 1. Plant trees. Runoff can damage coral, and trees reduce the amount of runoff into the ocean. 2. Use reef-safe sunscreen. Sunscreen washes off your body while swimming and enters the marine environment, where the chemical ingredients can damage reefs. 3. Share your knowledge with others! The lack of education to the general public of what chemicals and practices harm coral reefs is the greatest weakness in our effort to conserve them.

When we ask tourists what they appreciate the most about Guyana at the end of their visits, the comments we always seem to hear is 'how naturally beautiful our country is' and the hope that we 'continue to protect it'. We couldn't agree more as we embrace the conservation of our environment.  #discoverguyana #conservation #savetrees #saveenvironment #enviornment #protection #trees #green #greenspace #research #guyana🇬🇾
