. Green sea turtles are not always green, they come in many shades of different colours, including dark brown, green, olive, yellow and black. . So, why are they called “green” sea turtles, then? Well, these cool creatures are named for their layer of green fat that lies under their shell. Scientists believe this unusual quirky-coloured fat is the result of their veggie diet – unlike most other sea turtles, the green sea turtle eats marine plants such as seaweed 🌿 and sea grass. . This Beautiful Turtle is enjoying a meal of flower-like Padina algea in the lush gardens of Balicasag Island in the Philippines. . #turtle #Philippines #Cebu #Bohol #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines #island #islandlife #saltlife #wild #ocean #sea #diving #snorkeling #scubadiving #adventure #blue #green #wildlife #marine #marinelife #underwater #discover #travel #IUCN

#Repost @brg_indonesia with @get_repost ・・・ #MengenalGambut Hutan gambut merupaka rumah bagi beragam satwa liar yang dilindungi, seperti beruang madu. Beruang Madu (Helarctos Malayanus), di Indonesia dapat temui di kawasan hutan gambut Kalimantan dan Sumatera. Di beri nama beruang madu karena jenis beruang ini sangat suka meminum madu, meski madu bukanlah satu-satunya makanannya. Beruang madu sama seperti orangutan, suka menghabiskan sebagian besar hidupnya dengan tinggal di pohon-pohon tinggi di dalam hutan. Beruang madu juga tidur di sarang yang dibangun di atas pohon. Saat ini, beruang madu mendekati kepunahannya. Spesies beruang madu masuk ke dalam Daftar Merah #IUCN sebagai hewan langka dan dilindungi. Konversi dan kebakaran hutan gambut mengancam kehidupan beruang madu. Meski kehidupan beruang madu terancam dan terhimpit di habitat aslinya, bukan berarti kita berhak memburu dan memelihara mereka di dalam kandang, apalagi dengan kondisi kandang yang tidak layak. Karena habitat asli mereka adalah di hutan gambut. *Pada tanggal 16 Agustus 2016, Balai Konservasi Sumber Daya Alam (BKSDA) Kalimantan Tengah telah menyita beruang madu yang gambarnya kami abadikan di atas. BKSDA bekerjasama dengan Save Our Borneo untuk melakukan translokasi ke Taman Nasional. http://www.greeners.co/berita/bksda-kalteng-sita-dua-jenis-satwa-dilindungi-taman-wisata-kumkum/ #saveourborneo

Listed as Least Concern in #IUCNRedList and listed on #CITES Appendix II, the Serval, Leptailurus serval, is relatively abundant and widespread. It occurs widely through sub-Saharan #Africa, with the exception of tropical rainforests and the Saharan desert. However, the Serval is possibly extinct in Algeria. The species is commonly recorded in most major national parks and reserves, meanwhile, their status outside reserves is uncertain. . Servals specialise in preying on small mammals, in particular rodents, with birds, reptiles and arthropods being secondary prey species. Although Servals very rarely prey upon livestock (and indeed may even be beneficial to crop farmers due to their predilection for rodents), in rural areas throughout Africa, they are sometimes persecuted for taking poultry and indiscriminate predator control methods practiced by pastoralists frequently kill them. . The major threat to the species is wetland habitat loss and degradation. Wetlands harbour comparatively high rodent densities compared with other habitat types, and form the core areas of Serval home ranges. Of secondary importance is degradation of grasslands through annual burning followed by over-grazing by domestic livestock, leading to reduced abundance of small mammals. Sometimes other predators, such as leopards, hyaenas and lions, kill young and even adult Servals. . The key to Serval conservation is wetland conservation. It is crucial to investigate Serval habitat requirements and to create an updated action plan for the species. The Serval can be used as an umbrella species for #savanna biotopes; and as an indicator for the heavily endangered humid savanna #biotope. .

Painting 2/52 (And yes, I’m a firm believer in, ‘Better-late-than-never,’ ideologies lol...). I admit that I struggled this past week. I started off with an entirely DIFFERENT (and no less wonderful) animal in mind, sketched it all out to the point RIGHT before layering in the paint, and I just couldn’t commit. I switched gears late in the game to something I’m more familiar with, a creature from a habitat that has a tight hold on my heart. No apologies, just an explanation. I present to you, Sphyrna mokarran, or, as most of us may know it, the Great Hammerhead shark. Largely endangered due to the demand for their highly-prized fins, as well as high bycatch mortality rates, these slow to reproduce beauties are facing a battle for species survival. As with so many environmental concerns, there IS hope however, and SO MUCH that WE as a species can do to stop and reverse the problems facing these sharks. For more information on these majestic, misunderstood oceanic dwellers, and for ideas on how we can help keep their numbers in check, take a look at the link in my bio. And, perhaps, google bycatch for an informative and eye-opening read. Smooth sailing to all of you!

Pangolin is a solitary nocturnal animal that lives in forests and savannahs. The name comes from the Malay word peng-guling, meaning “roller“. They are distinctive for their protective keratin scales, which also makes them a prime target for illegal trading and hunting. There have been great efforts on pangolin conservation, including Zimbabwe’s Pangolin Men, from wildlife NGO @tikkihywoodtrust . Check out @adriansteirn ‘s amazing documentation of Pangolin Men and their work. . . . The Endangered Species series is my next theme after the Alphabet of Trees. Reading all about trees in the last series made me realize how little I know of our natural history. This will be my next step to learn more about our world, one animal at a time. #endangeredspecies #pangolin #mammals #emsnaturalworld #childrensillustration

@Regranned from @blackjaguarwhitetigerzoo - When I post photos and videos of the big cats in small enclosures that look like little prisons, and bjwt followers comment saying that they are just the quarantine areas, this is stage 2.... funny how they all look like the “quarantine” areas... . #Repost @realbjwtwatchdog (@get_repost) ・・・ Aerial shot of Stage 2B. It’s been very interesting watching #Serio continually change the number of acres he has for his 300+ big cats. As reported here on Watchdog last year, the Ranch where he housed approx 100 big cats is only 2.5 acres. Witnesses confirmed to Watchdog the cats lived in dog runs 24 hours a day and only let out for filming in the grassy area well recognized today. And according to PROFEPA, BJWT had a space of 1,000 cubic metres where it keeps the animals. That was cited to Watchdog in January 2017. He only had his Ranch back then. A few months later #Eddie unveiled his glorious Stage 2B crowing how “beautiful” and “avant-garde” it is. Stage 2B is approx 22 acres. He began moving his cats to these barren cubicle like enclosures, enclosures without enrichment, without shade, without climbable structures……pretty much without anything except dirt. Stage 2B mirrors the lion farms in South Africa. Farms that breed lions for the canned hunt. Over the years since the #Zoo’s rise to fame, #Eduardo has constantly changed the number of acres he posseses. From 10 acres, to 60 acres, to 100’s of acres and the latest, 2000 acres. No wonder he is so stressed out. He constantly has to think about what he has said, can’t remember, but hey not to worry…..he plucks another number out of his bag of goodies! To think all the celebrities that visit Stage 2B can’t distinguish between what is obviously a cold barren plot of land hoarding big cats and what an ethical well built and developed facility taking the well being of their cats into consideration would look like. #TrevorNoah #TheDailyShow #WWF #WorldAnimalProtection #NationalGeographic #TRAFFIC #IRS #FourPaws #Hublot #VICE #CarmenAristegui #IUCN #RafaelPacchianno #StichtingSpots #WARWildlifeAtRiskInternationalAfrica #LeonardoDiCaprio #BornFreeFoundation #BloodLions #Lio

This is a yellow-bellied glider. Gliders have a membrane of loose skin between their wrists and ankles which help them glide through the air from tree to tree. This is quite an efficient mode of transportation, especially for yellow-bellied gliders like this one who are capable of gliding 100 meters (328 feet) in a single leap! Although they consume pollen and insects, the main food source for these little marsupials is tree sap that they lap up out of wounds in trees that they make with their teeth. Because these gliders depend on large forest areas for food and shelter, they have been listed as Near Threatened on the #IUCN Red List as their habitats are becoming more and more fragmented.

Please go to @mattiasklumofficial to meet a chill orphaned orangutan. At orangutan rescue centre Nyaru Menteng hundreds of orphaned orangutan are kept while trying to find a safe new world for them. The name orangutan is derived from the Malay and Indonesian words orang meaning "person" and hutan meaning "forest", thus "person of the forest".

Such majestic orange ! Hello everyone for this Birdy Sunday let's meet the Eurasian Eagle-Owl (Grand-duc d'Europe, Bubo bubo) ! With an average wingspan of 1,70 m, it is one of the largest owl in the world. The beautiful eyes of this species makes it absolutely impossible to unregognize. It is a great apex predator (top of the food chain) that can live in a wide number of environements as shown on the map (resulting in many subspecies :p). This majestic raptors feeds on rodents, reptiles...and even other birds. The Eurasian Eagle -Owl nests in December in France so at the moment the eggs should be under incubation, protected by their gorgeous parents that, by the way, stay together for their whole life ! This species is listed as "Least Concerned" by the IUCN although its Asian population is believed to decline due to poisoning and nest disturbance. I hope you loved this post ! See you next Sunday !

The clown of the New Zealand mountains, the Kea (Nestor notabilis) is the only parrot that lives at high altitudes. Known for their pesky and silly nature, these birds are found on the mountain slopes of New Zealand’s South Island, where they forage for a variety of food to supplement their diet. They are omnivores, feeding mostly on roots, insects, fruit, carrion, and almost 200+ other foods. These parrots are some of the most, if not THE most, intelligent birds in the world. Living high in the mountains, where the temperatures can reach almost freezing, being intelligent and resourceful is a critical characteristic for these parrots. What an amazing animal, honestly one of my favorite birds ever *Note: These pictures do belong to me.* As always… #staybeastymyfriends #letsgetbeasty #thebeastguide #iucn #kea #newzealand #parrot #animals #conservation #qiviutandco #drlazarisvet #jungletraxcats #veterinaryadventures #travellingvet #drzoltan #thevetsociety #northcampoutdoors #vettainer

Rampant bird poaching activities in Godavari districts of Andhra Pradesh Resident and migratory birds brutally hunted for profit margins. Local people poaching water birds and marketing in local fish markets. During this migratory bird season I monitored palakollu municipal market in multiple intervals and documented bird poaching activities, recorded over 1600 dead and live birds of 22 different species including land birds like Asian koel, common myna and shikra etc. Special bird market is being held on every Saturday - market starts from afternoon 2 PM onwards. A women self employed in this market for to process bird meat and she took 50 rupees for each bird. Apart from this major bird market site. Mogolturu,Narasapuram, Perupalem, Muthyalapalli and akivedu fish markets are also hosting as marketing places for poached birds. The person who hunt birds and the person who marketing birds are hired by a middle men. Middle men is getting more money. This is beyond the livelihood activity. Poaching of birds is very high in West godavari district when compared to East godavari. In East Godavari district poaching of waterbirds still happening near yannam, kumbabhishekam and villages near katrenikona. All the documentation is secretly done with my mobile camera. List of species documented in markets *White brested water hen *Shikra *Greater coucal *Large egret *Lesser whistling duck *Little gribe *Cattle egret *Median egret *Pond heron *Purple heron *Black crowned night heron *Quails *Rails *Water cock *Red wattled lapwing *Open bill stork *Painted stork *Common myna *Rock pigeon *Little cormorant *Nothern pintails *Francolin All these birds species are protected under wildlife(protection) Act, 1972. Spread awareness and stop bird poaching Immediate action is required During this survey I was assisted with D.D.D sai Reddy, K Maheswar rao sir T Suresh Thank you so much guys for your efforts in this work - Mannepuri Srikanth #waterbirdspoaching #waterbirds #poaching #sanctuaryasia #natgeowild #wildlife_ap #wildlife #illegaltrading #hunting #migratorybirds #iucn #bnhs #speciesconservation #wildlifecrime #andhrapradesh #westgodavari #CITES

#Regram #RG @mattiasklumofficial: A manta ray glides over me and my camera in Indonesia's Raja Ampat. Mantas are filter feeders and eat large quantities of zooplankton, which they swallow with their open mouths as they swim. Mantas do visit cleaning stations for the removal of parasites like in this short film. The largest mantas can reach 1,350 kg (2,980 lb) and at least 7 m (23 ft) in "wingspan". In 2014, Indonesia brought in a fishing and export ban as it realized that manta ray tourism is more economically beneficial than allowing the fish to be killed. A dead manta is worth $50 to $600 while manta ray tourism can bring in $1 million during the life of a single manta ray. Indonesia has 2.2 million square miles of ocean and this is now the world's largest sanctuary for manta rays. Mantas have one of the highest brain-to-body mass ratios of all fish and if approached with care and respect they can be curious and spend a long time with you. The coral reefs of Raja Ampat are some of the richest marine habitats on Earth. Let's protect Raja Ampat and other fragile marine- and terrestrial ecosystems on this vulnerable and magical planet!

The Purple-faced leaf monkey (Trachypithecus vetulus) is a primate of the Old World Monkey order that is endemic to Sri Lanka. They are listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN (2008). A troop visits my home garden on an almost daily basis and my garden is at their disposal. They are fast losing habitat due to urbanisation in these parts and their future looks bleaker every passing day. The fellow featured here was spotted at the Bundala National Park. He looks quite philosophical. #oldworldmonkey #primates #monkey #langur #iucn #srilanka #nature #conservation #criticallyendangeredspecies #iucnredlist #photography #naturephotography #wildlife #urbanwildlife #photo A Dedication * This used to be our Eden * This used to be our Eden, my great-grandma did say We foraged and frolicked and ‘lived’ through our days Then one day came a back-hoe and took away our nests The trees we used to swing through on our daily quests Now we miss our old haunts – so we jump from roof to roof Our new neighbours sure don’t like us, they detest our goofs But this is the only home we know, where else can we go And in the middle lies a perilous highway that we fear to cross So day-in day-out we traverse through our time-frozen track But sadly the changed landscape does not welcome us back Living in fear and apprehension, not to mention constant hunger Till we find our next meal and a nights rest, all we do is wander - Nilu R (2016)

Swipe ➡️ for more pictures ‘ Clicked this magnificent bird flying one late evening during a boat ride on the river Sal in South Goa Near Betul beach close to the Dona Sylvia beach resort. ‘ The white-bellied sea #eagle ( #HaliaeetusLeucogaster), also known as the white-breasted sea eagle, is a large diurnal bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. A distinctive bird, this has a white head, breast, under-wing coverts and tail. The upper parts are grey and the black under-wing flight feathers contrast with the white coverts. The female is slightly larger than the male, and can measure up to 90 cm (35 in) long with a wingspan of up to 2.2 m (7.2 ft), and weigh 4.5 kg. ‘ This is listed as being of Least Concern by the #IUCN.There are an estimated 10 thousand to 100 thousand individuals, although there seems to be a decline in numbers & have become rare in Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia and Australia. ‘ Resident from India and Sri Lanka through Southeast Asia to Australia on coasts and major waterways, it breeds and hunts near water, and fish form around half of its diet. Opportunistic, it consumes carrion and a wide variety of animals. Although rated as Least Concern globally, it has declined in parts of southeast Asia such as Thailand, and southeastern Australia. It is ranked as Threatened in Victoria and Vulnerable in South Australia and Tasmania. Human disturbance to its habitat is the main threat, both from direct human activity near nests which impacts on breeding success, and from removal of suitable trees for nesting. ‘ The species is easily disturbed by humans, especially when nesting, and may desert nesting sites as a result & so found in greater numbers in areas with little or no human impact or interference. ‘ This was important to different tribes of indigenous people across Australia. It is considered special and killing it is forbidden. Its calls at night are said to foretell danger, and seeing a group of calling eagles flying overhead is a sign that someone has died. It is featured on the $10,000 Singapore note. It is the emblem of the Malaysian state of Selangor.

Ruddy shelducks. By the banks of the #rapti, #chitwan. These waterfowls winter in the Indian subcontinent, but breed in southeast Europe. Always in pairs. We spotted this couple around 1 pm on our way to a jeep Safari in the park. To our amusement these two were in the same spot when we returned that evening around 5pm. They seemed, well, least concerned. Incedentally their #IUCN #conservation status is 'LC' or of 'Least concern'! #ruddyshelduck #waterfowl #dusk #nepaldiaries

Lunch time. The red panda (Ailurus fulgens) is a #mammal native to the eastern #Himalayas and southwestern # China, is arboreal and feeds mainly on…well you guessed it, #bamboo, but it does also eat eggs, birds, and insects. It is a solitary animal, mainly active from dusk to dawn, and is largely sedentary during the day. Sadly classified as #Endangered by the IUCN as it's population is estimated at less than 10,000 mature individuals, numbers continues to decline due to habitat destruction, habitat fragmentation, poaching, and inbreeding depression. #panda #redpanda #lastchancetosee #lastchancetosave #IUCN #conservation #extinction #biodiversity #endangeredspecies#animal #wildlife #nature #naturephotography @endextinctionintl

Repost @natgeo Video by @joelsartore | Though slightly less colorful than other chameleon species, four-horned chameleons are no less intriguing. The four horns at the front of their faces are used to defend their territory. When battling for a tree branch, males will often lock horns and attempt to knock one another off. All chameleons are loners and prefer to live a peaceful life away from other animals. The only time that females will allow a male to touch her is during mating, and even then she’ll only allow brighter colored males to do so. Four horned chameleons like this one photographed at the @stlzoo are listed as Vulnerable on the #IUCN Red List. They are most threatened by the international pet trade as well as agricultural development of their native mountain forest habitats in Cameroon and Nigeria. To see a portrait of a four horned chameleon check out @joelsartore. . . #chameleon #chameleons #reptiles #herps #nature #conservation #biodiversity #animalfacts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #savetogether #photoark
