We left the beach for the jungle, and last couple of days it was all about birds🦅🦉 Still a little mesmerized with all the incredible beautiful bird species we saw. #Colombia🇨🇴 is one of the most bird diverse countries in the world🌎 and this particular isolated mountain range where we are now, the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, takes a special place in it all. Only 42 km from the Caribbean cost snow covered peaks of 5.775 meter high rise from the earth. It is the highest coastal mountain on the planet. Isolated from the Andes, this mountain range harbors a wide range of climate and ecosystems, from desert-like environment along the coastline to tropical rain forest and cloud forest higher up. As a result an extraordinary abundance of unique plants and animals developed here. Not surprisingly Sierra Nevada the Santa Marta was listed by the #IUCN in 2013 as the most irreplaceable place for conserving global biodiversity. It is literally a birder’s paradise. Here in the Sierra 635 species of birds have been recorded (about the same number of species found in the U.S 🇺🇸 and #Canada🇨🇦 combined!). This is about 35% of all Colombian birds, present in only 1,48% of the national territory! We hope that this unique nature will be well preserved in the future now #Colombia is really an upcoming country among tourist. Please take care wisely for our vulnerable and beautiful planet, or 'Aluna' as the Kogi (the indigenous people of the Sierra) call it. Okay, enough numbers and fact now, just enjoy this oh so magnificent bird, one of the species we've seen last days: the Keel-billed #Toucan (nickname Tuki).

Day 76 of #the100dayproject and my #realandendangered project. Today, I want to look at the Irrawaddy dolphin, whose range is patchy through the Bay of Bengal, Southeast Asia, Philippines and Papua New Guinea. Some interesting facts: 1. They have a large forehead, rounded head and lack a beak/snout. 2. They are an euryhaline species of oceanic dolphin (meaning they transition between saltwater and freshwater). 3. They are similar in body form to the beluga whale (but actually closely related to orcas). 4. They have been known to spyhop (vertically poke ones head out of the water to look around). 5. They communicate with clicks, creaks and buzzes at a dominant frequency of about 60 kilohertz (thought to be used for echolocation). The International Union for the Conservation of Nature currently lists them as "endangered." Their major threat is gill nets (fishing nets). As we have seen with other species (such as the almost extinct Vaquita), they get caught in nets meant for other fish (only in small pats of India are they directly hunted). In addition, they are impacted by increasing pollution, dams, severe erosion, use of explosives in fishing, and the fact that their populations are fragmented. The Action Plan for the Conservation of Freshwater Populations of Irrawaddy Dolphins include, but not limited to, establishing conservation areas with gill net bans/restrictions, providing training for safe release of entangled species, a program to compensate fisherman who receive damages from safe release of dolphins, and encouraging alternatives to gill nets. They also are protected by measures through a number countries in their range (for example Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia). They are included in Appendix I of CITES and Convention on Migratory Species (CMS). They also are part of wildlife sanctuaries in Bangladesh (co-occurring with Ganges River Dolphins).

Happy Prehistoric Sunday! Today’s post is about the Daeodon, otherwise famously known as the “terminator pig”. Daeodon belonged to a group of animals known as the “entelodonts,” a family of omnivorous mammals that lived 37-16 million years ago. Daeodon was the largest of this group, reaching a top height of 6 feet at the shoulder, and having a skull almost 3 feet in length. Looking at the size of their temporalis bone, paleontologists can deduct that Daeodon would have been able to execute a huge bite force. This would have been helpful when hunting for prey, cracking into bones to get at the marrow, and to chew up tough roots and tubers. Paleontologists also theorize that judging from the lack of abundant fossils, they assume that Daeodon was a solitary animal, and would have been highly territorial around other predators. This would have made it top of the food chain on the North American plains during the Oligocene (19 mya), but nonetheless it went extinct after more advanced and intelligent predators came on the scene. As always… #staybeastymyfriends #letsgetbeasty #thebeastguide #iucn #conservation #daeodon #terminatorpig #whales #prehistoricsunday #pigs #entelodont #oligocene #mammal #jungledoctor #drlazarisvet #indianwildlifeofficial #jungletrax #jungletraxcats #veterinaryadventures #travellingvet

Indonesia maximum card of World Wildlife Fund series. This card showing picture of komodo dragons (Varanus komodoensis). Komodo dragons are carnivores, meaning they eat meat. They are such fierce hunters they can eat very large prey, such as large water buffalo, deer, carrion, pigs and even humans. They will also eat smaller dragons. They can eat 80 percent of their body weight in one feeding. #kartupos #postcard #briefkaart #cartepostale #maximumcard #postcrossing #postalhistory #filateli #philately #philatelic #cardcollection #posindonesia #exploreindonesia #visitindonesia #pesonaindonesia #tourism #pariwisata #pangandaran #komodo #komodoisland #newsevenwonders #pulaukomodo #labuanbajo #varanuskomodoensis #visitkomodo #unesco #unescoworldheritagesite #worldheritagesite #iucn #wwf

Indonesia maximum card of World Wildlife Fund series. This card showing picture of baby of komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis). At birth, baby dragons are only 12 inches (30 centimeters) long. As soon as they hatch, the young will run away and climb up trees to avoid being eaten by their mother or other Komodos. When they are 4 years old and around 4 feet (1.2 m), the young Komodos will come down and live on the ground. Those that survive can look forward to a long life. A komodo dragon can live to more than 30 years. #kartupos #postcard #briefkaart #cartepostale #maximumcard #postcrossing #postalhistory #filateli #philately #philatelic #cardcollection #posindonesia #exploreindonesia #visitindonesia #pesonaindonesia #tourism #pariwisata #pangandaran #komodo #komodoisland #newsevenwonders #pulaukomodo #labuanbajo #varanuskomodoensis #visitkomodo #unesco #unescoworldheritagesite #worldheritagesite #iucn #wwf

Almost as he get scared of the open water, the polar bear stretched his legs toward the water but unfortunatly the ice is to thin to hold him. The most obvious negative impacts of rapid changes in sea ice are on the species that depend on ice as habitat. They include ice algae, ice amphipods, ringed seals and polar bears as many other species. #Arctic #polarbear #Conservation #climate #WWF #IUCN #Nature #Wildlife #Canada #Nunavut

In honor of Father’s Day tomorrow, I decided to post about one of the animal kingdoms best fathers. Meet one of our closest living relatives, the mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei). A subspecies of the eastern lowland gorilla, mountain gorillas are the largest primates in the world; males reach a top weight of 450 pounds (~220kgs), while the much smaller females only reach a top weight of 220 pounds (~100kgs). Found only in the Virunga mountains located in the DRC and Rwanda, these apes have evolved long, thick hair and a large body size to deal with living in the cold mountaintop forests (they can be found at elevations of 7,000-14,000 feet!). Despite their scary appearance, gorillas are exclusively vegetarian, feeding on mostly shoots and leaves. Sadly, these magnificent animals, along with all other great apes, are in danger of extinction. Habitat loss, poaching, and human disease all threaten the mountain gorillas existence, where they currently number at just over 1,000. If we lose our closest living relatives, what does that say about us as a species? As always… #staybeastymyfriends #letsgetbeasty #thebeastguide #happyfathersday #iucn #conservation #gorilla #mountaingorilla #virunga #africa #criticallyendangered #endangered #humans #closestrelative #jungledoctor #drlazarisvet #indianwildlifeofficial #jungletrax #jungletraxcats #veterinaryadventures #travellingvet

Day 75 of #the100dayproject and my #realandendangered project. Today, we are going to focus another nocturnal marsupial, the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat, which is currently only located in Epping Forest National Park, central Queensland, Australia. Here are a few facts: 1. They are the largest wombat and the largest known herbivorous burrowing mammal. 2. Despite their cumbersome appearance, they can run up to 40km (around 25 miles) speeds per hour over a short distance. 3. They have soft silver-grey to brown fur with dark rings surrounding the eyes. 4. They inhabit only semi-arid sandy grasslands or gum tree/acacia woodlands. 5. Around 12 different grass species make up their diet. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature currently lists them as "critically endangered." Their numbers have previously declined from food shortage due to overgrazing by livestock, but now habitat destruction is also playing a role. In 2016, there were around 80 individuals within a limited area. The size and close proximity means wildfire, disease or even inbreeding could easily impact their survival. Today, the invasive (not native) buffelgrass is also taking over areas in their habitat. In terms of conservation, they receive protection as a threatened species by CITES and Queensland and Australian law. Their recovery plan is on its third edition and includes: controlling threats and managing the habitat, accurately monitoring wombats, translocation, develop captive breeding techniques, continue to learn more about the species and managing a recovery team.

Repost from @jens_cullmann Repost from @timflachphotography I spend days travelling through the Mountains on the Philippine islands looking for this eagle, and in the end I photographed it at a rescue sanctuary. The Philippine Eagle has the largest wing span of any eagle, at 2 metres, and is only found on the Philippine islands, where it is the national bird.

Happy World Sea Turtle Day, sharing a very happy memory from Cabo Verde! Sea turtles are major victims of ocean pollution! Only 1 in a 1.000 survive until adulthood and on top of that more than ever they are threatened by pollution! And poaching is still ongoing in many countries.. Turtles in the wild are a major tourist attraction and we need to urgently recognize the environmental, economic and socio-cultural value of protecting them! #worldseaturtleday #saveourseaturtles #beatplasticpollution #saveouroceans #ecotourism #seaturtle #turtles #hatchling #caboverde #volunteering @projectbiodiversity #iucn #conservation #nature #environment #love #protect #wildlife

21/06/2018 Hawksbill Sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) 🐢nesting #Jamaica 🇯🇲. (Ideally one should use red filtered lights to view turtles at night) Despite the large number of hatchlings their chance for survival to adulthood is 1 in 1000 Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and hatching #beaches.Females crawl out on beaches, dig nests and lay eggs. Later, hatchlings emerge & scramble into the water. Those that reach maturity may live to eighty years in the wild. They are listed as #endangered by the #IUCN & CITES & is protected from exploitation in most countries including 🇯🇲 . It is illegal to collect, harm or kill them.Intentional threats include continued hunting, poaching and egg harvesting,the introduced invasive species the #mongoose unintentional threats, include boat strikes, fishermen's nets that lack turtle excluder devices, pollution & habitat destruction. Chemical pollution may create tumors;effluent from harbors near nesting sites may create disturbances; & light pollution disorients hatchlings sending them the wrong way. Habitat loss usually occurs due to human development of nesting areas. Beach-front construction , land "reclamation" and increased poor tourism practices are examples of such development 🐢 #hawksbill #turtle #viewjamaica #wildlife #turtlesofinstagram #wildjamaica #seaturtle #nature #Jamaican #naturephotography #turtles #cute #Caribbean #ochorios #conserve #reptile #876 #widecast #eggs #saynototurtlepunch 🚫🐢🍲 #repost @whiteriverfishsanctuary

Indonesia maximum card of World Wildlife Fund series. This card showing picture of fighting komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis). Komodo dragon is endemic animal of Indonesia, and only founded in Komodo and Rinca island. Both is part of Lesser Sunda islands. Komodo dragon is a vulnerable species and is on the IUCN Red List. TheKomodo National Park was founded in 1980 to protect Komodo dragon populations on islands including Komodo, Rinca, and Padar. Later, the Wae Wuul and Wolo Tado Reserves were opened on Flores to aid with Komodo dragon conservation. Komodo National Park is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In 2011, Komodo island has been included into New 7 Wonders of Nature list. #kartupos #postcard #briefkaart #cartepostale #maximumcard #postcrossing #postalhistory #filateli #philately #philatelic #cardcollection #posindonesia #exploreindonesia #visitindonesia #pesonaindonesia #tourism #pariwisata #pangandaran #komodo #komodoisland #newsevenwonders #pulaukomodo #labuanbajo #varanuskomodoensis #visitkomodo #unesco #unescoworldheritagesite #worldheritagesite #iucn #wwf

Day 74 of #the100dayproject and my #realandendangered project. Today, let us look at the Red-crested tree rat, which is only endemic to Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. Little is known about this species, but I do have a few facts for you: 1. They also go by the name Red-crested soft-furred spiny-rat. 2. They are about the size of a guinea pig. 3. Until 2011, the last recorded sighting was in 1898 (when two individuals were found and studied). Which means they were not spotted for 113 years. It also means only 3 individuals have been known to researchers. 4. They have a fiery-red patch of fur on their head and a long, fuzzy black and white tail. 5. They are considered to be nocturnal. As you can imagine, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature currently lists them as "critically endangered." Population, behavior, diet, etc. are unknown. In addition specific threats to the species are unknown, which means you have to examine the habitat's status, which in this case has undergone a lot of deterioration. The Montane forest continues to undergo clearing. Holiday homes limit their range, while coffee plantation and pastures for livestock create further clearings with limiting areas for shade. With forest fires and climate change, you can see how it could impact this very rare species. The hope is to encounter more of the species to understand more about them and, in turn, how to save them.

The Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus), also called the Fish-Eating Crocodile, is one of the longest of all living crocodilians, reaching lengths of up to 20ft (6.2m). 🐊🤠 • This critically endangered reptile is from the northern part of the Indian Subcontinent, and gets its name from the “boss”, called a “ghara” in Hindi for the earthenware pots it resembles, found on the end of the males snout! 🐽 • Despite looking fierce, these crocodilians almost exclusively eat fish, which their long thin snout is perfectly adapted to catching! 🐠🐟🐠

Updated Mangrove scarf print- this version will be very limited, print on super thin Italian silk, hand sewing. Still considering about to sell it - if you really want to have good quality- it cannot be cheap. Real silk is huge production: thread by thread, millions of treads- became a fabric, which have no weight, breathable, natural, without any plastic substance ( no elastan, synthetic, lycra, etc. ) just pure organic thread - 8 times thinner than human hair, made by cutest silkmoths - the best way of energy transforming in the world I guess. I simply don't understand why people still buying fake silk or synthetic scarf? What's the point? You live this life once- don't you want to get everything the best what the World have now? #mangrovesforest #mangrovesforthefuture #mangroves #mangrove #mangrovethailand #rizofora #redmangrove #yellowmangrove #natureconservation #iucnthailand #iucn #redlist #flowerdesign #tropicalflowers #tropicalpattern #patterndesign #mangrovepattern #themishaart #tropicalillustration #digitalartist #junglepattern #digitalart

Lechucita bigotona. Hoy fue un día de recuerdos. Facebook me recordó un sketch de hace tres años de esta especie, la primera vez que trabajé como ilustrador de naturaleza. El año pasado, mientras viajaba entre San Martín y Amazonas, terminé esta versión más estilizada de la rara Lechucita bigotona. Esta pequeña ave es endémica de los bosques montanos de Amazonas - Perú y se encuentra en peligro, una rarísima cazadora nocturna enana de la cual se conoce casi nada, se presume que vuela poco y más bien salta y hace vuelos cortos en las ramas altas de los árboles buscando insectos. Esta ave puede ser vista (con paciencia y algo de suerte) en el ACP Abra Patricia - Alto Nieva y en Fundo Alto Nieva, ambos a un par de horas de Huembo (hogar el famoso y también endémico amazonense Colibrí cola de espátula). #illustraciencia

Day 73 of #the100dayproject and my #realandendangered project. Today, I want to talk about the Roloway monkey, an Old World monkey native to Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana. Want to know more? 1. Like all monkeys they communicate vocally, but this species also communicates visually: they use a stare to threaten. 2. They are arboreal and primarily found in undisturbed, mature forests. 3. Their facial coloring is black, but paired with a white beard and brow line. 4. They live in groups of 15 to 30 individuals. 5. They are frugivore-insectivores, meaning their diet primarily consists of fruit and insects. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature currently lists them as "endangered." They are one of the top three most endangered monkeys in Ghana. They are threatened by hunting and habitat degradation and loss. Their range has endured large-scale deforestation through logging, land conversion for agriculture, and charcoal production. Hunting alone has contributed to at least a 50% decline of the species. Currently the Roloway monkey is protected through CITES and the African Convention on the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources. Parts of their habitat also fall in protected areas, but at present four reserves in western Ghana fail to confirm the presence of the species. At present surveying their location seems to be the focus in conservation. Local education and awareness projects also have been key.

Wadduwa as he was released. We were lucky when he decided to walk right past one of our cameras, and look straight into it. He was a gorgeous old man, with so many adventures under his belt. Repost @anyaratnayaka: That moment when he realized he was free! He has been named Waduwa. He's an old tough #fishingcat, who has faced quite a few battles, judging by the scars on his face and ears. A chicken thief, he's going to have to find food the normal way from now on! #urbanfishingcat #srilanka #urbanwetlands #urbanwildlife #conservation #awareness #smallwildcats #wildcats #cats #catlovers #animals #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #biodiversity #wildlifephotography #gwc #conservation #conservationoptimism #smallcatconservation #wetlands #CITES #IUCN #IUCNRedList #endangeredspecies #vulnerablespecies #colombo #wildcolombo #throwbackthursday

A rare #isidors #eagle like this one taken by Murray Cooper in the Ecuadorian #cloudforest, has been spotted near our #Neblina reserve. Listed as 'Endangered' on IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, there are an estimated 200 individuals left in Ecuador. These low numbers are mainly due to habitat loss after conversion of primary forest to agriculture.

Standing's day gecko (Phelsuma standingi) is among the largest living species of day geckos. They are endemic to the unique thorn forest of southwest Madagascar , due to illegal collection of firewood this area is becoming smaller by the day.

Water conservation and management have been at the epicenter of many local Arab communities established in arid and semi-arid environments. Not only is water a crucial component to their survival, but it has also played a significant role in formulating their cultural traditions and practices.
