My 9th endangered animal micro drawing- blue whale. These whales are the biggest animal on the planet. They were hunting to the brink of extinction in the 19th and early 20th centuries. But have been protected from commercial whale since 1966. However they are still at risk from the effects of climate change, which reduces the abundance of Krill (their main source of food). Also other threats include becoming harmed by ship strikes, pollution and becoming tangled in fishing gear. • • • #bluewhale #wildlifeillustration #artistofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofinstagram #endangered #endangeredspecies #environmental #environmentalist #drawing #microart #myart #tinydrawing #art #artwork #smallart #penandink #wildlifeart #wildlifedrawing #wildlifeconservation #seal #bluewhaleart #savethewhales #enviromentalart #savetheanimals #illustrator #illustrations #illustration #enviromentalartist

Learned so much about wolves and how badly our country has treated them at the @cowolfcenter. These animals are truly beautiful and deserve to be protected (along with their habitats) by the #endangeredspeciesact It was great to get to howl with them too 😅🐺 #wolves #wildlife #endangered #endangeredspecies #savethewolves

💙🐬💙 🔹️There's been a lot of speculation regarding the intent of the team of experts, that is trying to deliver Scarlet J-50 medications and supplements through a live salmon feed technique. 🔹️It is my understanding that all the doctors, all the researches and the Lummi Nation that are on the water everyday, have no intention of feeding Scarlet for an indefinite amount of time: this live fish feed is a temporary solution aimed at healing the little starving orca. They have my respect and appreciation, but being myself a doubting Thomas at heart, I also look at this attempts with a healthy dose of skepticism. 🔹️If she survives, could this technique of feeding her live fish, interfere with her ability to hunt for food, therefore setting a seriously unsustainable precedent? The Salish Sea is not a concrete tank, and the Southern Resident orcas aren't captive mammals. If Scarlet gets used to being fed by humans, what would happen when adverse weather conditions wouldn't allow any boats to bring her salmon? 🔹️And I can't help but wonder why nothing like this was ever attempted to save the life of Scarlet's cousin, Sonic J-52, who died of malnutrition back in September 2017. I'll patiently wait, hoping this dedicated team of experts can heal her, and hopefully let Mother Nature do the rest! 🔹️It is my hope that the innate arrogance of mankind, won't clash with Mother Nature this time! 💙🐬💙🐬💙🐬💙🐬💙 #salishsea #jpod #lpod #kpod #endangeredspecies #savethesrkw #savetheorcas #savethesalmon #freethesnake #srkws #stopextinction #j50 #j35 #srkw #killerwhales #centerforwhaleresearch #takeaction #removethedams #orcas #savethewhales #phonestorm 📸NOT MY PHOTO📸

Great news! A recent survey estimated 1,000+ mountain gorillas living in the wild in both Virunga Massif and Bwindi. Looks like conservation policies, more rangers and higher gorilla trekking fees are a effective plan for these gentle giants and the local communities. #endangeredspecies #gorillasafari #traveltuesday #wildlife #RwandaSafari #UgandaSafari

A day with Billy: the monk seal. Pt 1 Full video on youtube (link in bio) . One day, in a Greek island, we found a cute monk seal on the shore. This is the video I did about him..

Voyageurs National Park is meant to be explored with a boat!! We weren't that excited about this park until we got out onto the water. Cute islands with cabins, a dozen eagles + eagle nests, restaurants you can only reach via waterway, the Canadian border. We loved it all and highly recommend the all-day boat tour we took!! Next time, we're coming with kayaks and camping on an island ❤❤ 13/60 PS There wasn't anyone around to take our picture at this one...usually when that happens I set the camera on the hood of the truck and set a timer. This time I did a little Photoshop magic.

“I hate an unfair fight, and there is no fight on this planet less fair than the fight endangered species have to endure.” —Bryan Christy • An investigator, journalist, and fighter for the small guy, Christy is the kind of person we need on wildlife’s side. Bryan Christy’s invaluable investigative journalism helps the world rethink the wildlife trade. He changes the structure and the way the stories of animal exploitation are told and how people think about them. His groundbreaking work reveals the even darker underbelly of the wildlife trade, which goes way beyond wildlife issue—it’s a security issue, a terrorist issue, and an issue deserving governmental attention. His investigations lead to new wildlife laws and convictions. He exposes serious crime, making this crisis relevant to groups beyond already supportive conservationists, and making it less likely that poachers will get away with their crimes. Christy founded Special Investigations at National Geographic, where he has worked as a Contributing Writer to the magazine, as an Explorer Program TV correspondent, and as a National Geographic Society Fellow. For its 125th anniversary, National Geographic named Christy’s freelance work one of ten ways National Geographic had changed the world.

ROCK WALLS, ROCK WALLABIES, AND SILENCE One of my favorite places on our recent visit to Australia was Ormiston Gorge in the West MacDonnell ranges. We spent two days in this place. It is the quietest place I have ever been anywhere in the world. Imagine stepping inside a painting with noise cancelling headphones, and hearing only the sound of your thoughts. It really is an amazing experience. The gorge is the home of the Black-Footed Rock Wallaby, considered at risk of extinction. The hind feet have the same grip as a running shoe, allowing it to jump along the rock walls without slipping.

Saddle-billed Storks are officially Endangered in South Africa, the major danger they face is the damage being done to the wetlands in the name of urbanisation and development. When the wetlands are done away with or polluted, these birds lose their source of food and water, and their habitat. #malamalagamereserve #birdsofinstagram #birdsofsouthafrica #krugernationalpark #canon #canonphotography #birdsofkruger #endangeredspecies

A baby Silvery Gibbon peeks out from its mum’s thick furry coat at Prague Zoo in the Czech Republic. The newborn is just one week old but already climbing all over mum, Alangalang who looks less than impressed. Silvery Gibbons are an endangered species which can only be found living in deep rainforests on the island of Java in Indonesia. Their natural habitat is under threat from logging and forest clearance while young gibbons are often hunted and sold into the illegal pet trade.

Massive swaths of rainforests are being torched to make way for palm oil plantations, since these trees have a high yield of oil. Massive deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia has already killed many orangutans and those that remain are now critically endangered due to loss of habitat. The high demand for palm oil is now fuelling deforestation across Asia, Africa, and Brazil, which threatens even more species. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Palm oil is found in about half of all packaged food products and can also be found in lipstick, soap, detergents, and shampoo. Be sure to watch out for palm oil derivatives such as palmate, palmitoyl, palmitate/palmitic acid, stearate/stearic acid, glyceryl, and sodium lauryl sulphate. Limit consumption of these products and look for the product certification of sustainable palm oil cultivation. 🐘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #boundlessworld #rainforest #fire #forestfire #animal #animals #animalsanctuary #meat #orangutan #endangeredspecies #vegan #vegetarian #ethicaleating #food #ethicalshopping #farming #sustainableliving #sustainable #model #justkidding #art #photography #photooftoday #photooftheday #blackandwhite #animalrights #justice #tuesdaythoughts (🇰🇷)

Laqui is in demand everywhere and with every project on the Northern Jaguar Reserve and surrounding Viviendo con Felinos ranches. He works as a jaguar guardian and field assistant, and we rely on his wide-ranging knowledge and abilities more and more each year. In any given month, Laqui will place and maintain motion-triggered cameras, assist visiting researchers, guide interns, accompany filmmakers, take the truck to the mechanic, help remove trespassing cows, and participate in gabion construction, road maintenance, fence repair, and invasive species removal. He has the skills required to share tasks with our biologists, combined with an innate knowledge of this area and a cool, confident dedication we find inspiring.

Excited to share a preview of Jenni Desmond’s THE ELEPHANT, coming this fall! . In this, Jenni’s third nonfiction children’s book about one of the large, endangered animals of Earth, we join a young boy as he learns about elephants. . A note from Jenni: “Even in the wild, elephants are in danger from humans. As we cut down forests and develop land for palm oil, farming, and settlement, elephants are losing their essential habitat and historic migration routes. When elephants and humans cross paths, it can be hazardous for both sides. Elephants are also hunted and killed for the ivory of their tusks. Despite the fact that it’s illegal, poachers still sell ivory on the black market for jewelry, carvings, and medicines. . Elephants are social, emotional creatures that develop deep bonds within their families. If elephants are to stay healthy and flourish, we must commit to caring for them and protecting the land they need to survive.” . . . . #childrensbook #childrensbooks #picturebook #picturebooks #childrensliterature #kidlit #kidlitart #read #readaloud #reading #bookstagram #preservation #endangeredspecies #elephant #elephants #enchantedlion #enchantedlionbooks #WorldElephantDay @worldelephantday @wwf @wwfcanada @wwf_uk #JenniDesmond #repost @enchantedlion

Another piece added to my extensive cetacean book collection is 'Humpback whales of the South West Pacific' by Glenn Edney. Published in 2010, it contains all essential information on this particular population, including a chapter on whale tourism, which is striving in the Kingdom of #Tonga and a reason why people are coming to #Niue 🐳🐳🐳

Happy #WorldLizardDay from us at Kanahau! Here we have pictured a female Utila Swamper Iguana (Ctenosaura bakeri) this lovely lady is part of our capture mark recapture study, she is nunber 4(!!) out of 1054 Iguanas caught in the study and was first caught in 2012 and again this August, 6 years later! She was at adult size in 2012 so this makes her at least 8-10 years old! This is incredible data for our project about the longevity of the swampers and the maximum size of females. It’s great to see a female surviving to this age as they are sadly being hunted to extinction for their meat and eggs. We wish you well in the mangroves number 4 and hope to see you again! #SaveTheSwamper @iguana_foundation @unisouthwales #kanahau #utila #utilaiguana #ctenosaurabakeri #ctenosaura #fieldherping #herpetology #fieldwork #research #conservation #endangeredspecies #iguanalove #mangroves #honduras #hondurasisgreat

The BC government is allowing clearcutting in federally mapped critical habitat for the at-risk southern mountain caribou. It takes around 120 years for a tree to reach an age where it can support lichen, an essential food for caribou. So when you clearcut an area of caribou habitat, you essentially create a starvation zone. . . . #caribou #BC #bcpoli #pnw #drone #dronephotography #endangeredspecies #species #logging #clearcut #pnwdiscovered #wellsgray

When these animals land on the sand, they print their body shape on it. This shape enables the estimation of the animal size and even the determination of its sex. It is important to recall that the spiny butterfly ray is categorised as Critically Endangered (IUCN) in the Mediterranean Sea and its finishing is prohibited.

I recently witnessed firsthand just how delicate the balance of nature can be, and how our individual habits & choices can have immense ripple effects. The entire ecosystem off the coast of Florida is being decimated (a massacre that would garner a global movement if it were humans not 🐟🐠🐡) due to a toxic algae known as RED TIDE ❌ how could human behavior possibly be linked to algae you may ask? . ↖️See my ig story for the first installment of a side project I’m doing called Natures Guardian. Where i report eco-news (with a slight bias towards nature) we NEED to be hearing about instead of the kardashians/the big orange idiot. Hopefully this inspires some to shift their focus a bit. Let me know what you think and if you’ve experienced red tide too ✌🏼&♥️

majestetic mermaids in their natural habitat Isn't it stunning how these prehistoric reptiles that weigh more than twice as much as an average adult human are "aquadynamically" sliding through the endless body of water? I might have come a bit close to the turtles in the beginning even though the smaller one almost didn't show any fear as it even dove underneath me. Nevertheless, I decided to keep some distance to not disturb them which enabled me to capture both sea turtles taking deep breaths in front of the peaceful bay of Anse Dufour.

Potential Re-Opening of Williamson Rock and PCT section! 😃 We just came from the meeting with the Forest Service, outdoor organizations and the public to discuss on what we can do to re-open this rich cluster of recreational opportunities. The USDA Forest Service is asking for help from the public. If you have ideas, comments, proposals, anything, please visit their website. Last day to comment is Sept. 10th. The link is on our page. Thank you! If you want more info, we wrote a couple of articles on our website about WIlliamson Rock, PCT section and about the frogs. Photo by Larson of #summitpost, @baboon_outdoors, @sandiegozoo

“Dubai” the White Rhino ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meet “Dubai", a Southern White Rhino that I photographed at the Nariobi Safari Walk in Kenya. The name 'rhinoceros' means ‘nose horn’ and comes from the Greek words ‘rhino’ (nose) and ‘ceros’ (horn). There are five different species of rhinos, they are: Black Rhinos, White Rhinos, Indian Rhinos, Javan Rhinos and Sumatran Rhinos. Despite their names, White and Black Rhinos are actually grey, and there are two different types of White Rhinos: the Northern White and the Southern White. The White Rhino is the second largest land mammal after the elephant and the largest of all rhino species. When "Sudan" the last male Northern White Rhino, died earlier this year (March 2018) it took the subspecies to the brink of extinction with only two others remaining in the wild - Sudan's daughter, "Najin" and his granddaughter, "Fatu". Both female. Their near extinction is due to decades of illegal poaching for rhino horn with most of the demand coming from China and Vietnam. Rhinos have been around for over 50 million years and though they are built for survival, they can not survive against international criminal gangs of poachers. We must act now to end both ivory and rhino horn poaching and only a concerted global effort will stop this illegal trade. #savetherhino ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #whiterhinoceros #whiterhino #rhinoceros #rhino #rhinos #rhinosofinstagram #rhinoafrica #endangeredspecies #endangered #endextinction #stoppoaching #naturephotography #wildlife #savewildlife #wildlifeconservation #conservation #wildphotography #wildlifephotography #wildlifeonearth #safari #onsafari #safariphoto #kenyawildlife #wildafrica #nairobi #kenya #eastafrica #africa #🦏
