🍃 Ring-tailed lemurs are currently listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List + face a series of immediate threats from habitat loss + bushmeat hunting. In addition, the species is being extracted from the wild for the in-country illegal pet trade which provides private households with pets + businesses with lemurs that foreign tourists can take selfies with. Fortunately, the illegal trade of live lemurs out of Madagascar into the international market is strictly monitored - Kim Reuter . 📸 of RTL Katta by @thiswildlife.bymel // @mel_spittall . . . #ringtailedlemur #endangerdspecies #iucnredlist #currumbinwildlifesanctuary #currumbinsanctuary #wildlifeconservation

🍃 Two new independent studies estimate that there are only between 2,000 + 2,400 ring-tailed lemurs left in the wild. This is a 95% decrease from the year 2000, when the last known population estimate was published. It also means that now there are more ring-tailed lemurs in zoos around the world than remain in the wild . 📸 of RTL Sunny by @thiswildlife.bymel // @mel_spittall . . #ringtailedlemur #endangerdspecies #iucnredlist #currumbinwildlifesanctuary #currumbinsanctuary #wildlifeconservation

Bengal Florican, another critically endangered bustard which is found in the large arable fields of the northeast. The good news is that frequent birdwatching tours have created some awareness amongst the locals about their importance of survival. But still, there is a large section which needs to be educated about this elusive creature.

Ao escolher uma profissão, você escolhe um desafio, ir a luta... Então, lute sempre e quando você menos esperar certamente receberá os frutos de todo seu esforço... Hoje foi meu dia de colher os frutos... Sou Biólogo e amo o que faço, estão hoje (19/09/2018) fui agraciado, não apenas com um, mas sim quatro (04) encontros magníficos, com aquela que é tida como a rainha da selva, a majestosa Panthera onca (onça-pinta).. Emoção indescritível ao lado do meu amigo Divino Nunes (companheiro de muitas lutas e conquistas), e com o apoio e experiência do senhor Dejanei (vulgo Neguinho), um cara com visão de águia... Na companhia desses figuras, disfrutei da mais incrível sensação que um profissional da minha área, poderia desfrutar, estar frente a frente com o maior felino das Américas e ainda receber um bônus... Presenciei um ataque da onça-pintada (Panthera onca), contra uma das suas presas favoritas, a capivara (Hdrochoerus Hydrochaeris)... Uma palavra, para descrever tamanha emoção?!

Another day, another image! Also from my Galápagos archive is this shot of a Blue-banded goby, a species which is endemic to the islands and is only known to reside here. Unfortunately, the Galápagos blue-banded goby is currently listed on the @iucn_europe Red List as vulnerable, due to oceanographic environmental changes and it’s restricted distribution. I had an incredible time on this university trip in April 2017, working with both the @darwinfound and @galapagosconservancy as well as diving with the @scuba_iguana team.

Hello cutie 🦁/ The lion was once found throughout Africa, Asia and Europe but now exists only in Africa with one exception. The last remaining Asiatic lions are found in Sasan-Gir National Park in India, which was primarily created to protect the species. Currently, there are approximately 350-400 lions in the park. #lion #lioness #kingofthejungle #lionsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #bigcatsofinstagram #malelions #lioness #shade #cat #cats #bigcats #bigcatconservation #predator #hunter #carnivore #wildlifeofafrica #wildlifeshots #wildlifephoto #krugernationalpark #kruger #krugersafari #wildlifepark #savethelions #conservation #iucnredlist

Reblog: @rimau_ngo Happy Malaysia Day! 😘🇲🇾 In conjunction with this celebration as we usher in a time of great change within our nation, ‘Rimau’ has been established and launched. This is a non-governmental organisation that I am glad to be a part of which focuses on the plight to save our Malaysian tigers from extinction. We are committed to raising more awareness towards this urgent crisis. We are on the verge of losing these precious animals, threatened by poaching. We welcome and call for more people to follow us and join this committee, as we aim to expand our local network to increase the numbers of voices speaking out against the atrocities commited to our tigers.🐯 My own awareness is deepening in regards to the gravity of the situation but there is so still so much I need to keep abreast with and educate myself on in regards to this issue. I will do my best to share as much of my knowledge and resources through this work to the best of my ability. This whole movement towards achieving more environmental protection and sustainability in our country requires a shift as we move away from working out of the place of ego into a place based in compassion and good intentions, myself included. Visit @rimau_ngo and do follow us. Malaysia, let us show our love and support here. Help fight this injustice together to protect our guardians of the forest. 🐅🌺🔥🍃🧡🖤💚💛🙌🏼 #16092018 #tigers #tigress #workinprogress #conservation #malaysia #berkhidmatuntuknegara

One of the most enigmatic  #species in the hobby, this incredible little #catfish must rank amongst the most stunning  #freshwaterfishes known. In the late 1990s and the early part of this century you could buy one of these for as little as twenty pounds. However in 2004, the Brazilian government banned the exportation of the species amid apparent concerns over the exploitation of wild stocks. As yet, the  #conservation status of the fish has not been confirmed by any scientific proof with the only #environmental organisation recognising it as  #endangered  being #IBAMA (the Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Natural Resources). In 2016 it was given a #CITES listing under appendix III. An Appendix III listing mandates that international trade in the species be documented, and establishes paper-trail regulations for exporters and importers that must be adhered to. Appendix III listings do not ban trade, nor do they affect interstate trade within a country. Based on current CITES information, these species will require either an export permit from the listing state (in the case of H. zebra, from #Brazil or any country where captive-bred), or if exported (or re-exported) from any other country, a certificate of origin is required. While the commercial trade in Appendix III species remains legal, it becomes more expensive and onerous for importers and exporters. Per the CITES notification, “In accordance with the provisions of Article XVI, paragraph 2, of the Convention, inclusion of these species in Appendix III shall take effect 90 days after the date of this Notification, i.e. on 3 January 2017.” For further information, visit https://cites.org/eng/disc/how.php.

Photo taken by @jonathanharrodphotography of a Kea (Nestor notabilis), a species that lives in the mountains and forests of the South Island of New Zealand, although there were investigations that led to the conclusion that it also lived on the North Island, but unfortunately it became extinct. It is a gregarious, daring and curious bird, it can be found in groups of between five and fifteen birds of the same species. It is characterized by having a powerful and acrobatic flight, and by its strong singing, apart from its whistles and shouts. The kea has a mainly herbivorous diet, composed of berries and sprouts, but also feeds on insects, nectar and eggs. They also learned to feed on landfills and carrion. They developed a very bad reputation as sheep killers, but although they feed on dead sheep, or they can kill some sick sheep, there are very few cases of attacks on healthy sheep. The breeding season begins in July and lasts until March. The keas begin to reproduce when they are more than three years old. The male is often polygamous. They build their nest in holes in the ground, under the trunks and in the cavities between the rocks. The nest is made of branches, herbs, mosses and lichens, and can continue with its construction for several years. The International Union for Conservation considers this bird as a vulnerable species, its populations vary greatly according to their estimates, but they have between 1,000 and 15,000 specimens in the wild. The competition (and predation) of some mammals and also the introduction of herbivores is one of their biggest threats. Good job photographing this beautiful bird. #Birds #newzealand #nature #conservation #rareparrots #iucnredlist #earth #birdsofnewzealand #jonathanharrodphotography #birdstagram #birdsconservation #travel #birdlife #birds_captures #birds_of_ig #photography #ilovebirds #best_birds_of_ig

It is sad to know that behind such a friendly video there can be something so dark and sad behind.The macaw spix, a bird that is considered a critically endangered species, has just been declared through a study recently conducted by the BirdLife organization as an extinct species in the wild.It is said that in its original region, an area of ​​the state of Bahia in Brazil, there are no longer specimens in nature or in freedom.It is very sad to know that we are disappearing species as beautiful as this one and that we are left with our arms crossed.

Not the best Hawksbill photo but it's only my third time encountering this amazing and sadly critically endangered species (IUCN), Eretmochelys imbricata. while important to conserve species like the Hawksbill Sea Turtle, we must remember there are thousands of others, many which most people have never even heard of that are under threat because of us... We need to take a hard look at ourselves and change our behaviour to return our species to being a part of our ecosphere rather than exploiting it for all it's worth, before it becomes worthless for all.

What a surprise!. It is very rare to encounter this species unless your lucky😄 📷 by @emanuelaniel In Tanzania, Temminck’s Ground Pangolin is sometimes referred to as Bwana mganga ('the doctor') because every body part is believed to have some medicinal value. For example:- *Many East African people believe that burning pangolin scales keeps away lions. *Across their range the scales are widely believed to bring good luck and to bring rain, while smoke from burning scales is said to improve the health of cattle and cure persistent nose-bleeding. *Also other people believe that seeing a pangolin indicates that there will be a drought, and the only way to prevent the drought is by killing the animal (Source: Iucn redlist) . . . #visittanzania #visittanzania🇹🇿 #thisiswildlife #pangolin #Natgeowild #Iucnredlist #tanzaniaparks

'Data Deficient' reads the IUCN Red List page for the Cape kurper (Sandelia capensis) - a species of freshwater fish endemic to the south-western tip of Africa. Conservation biologists use tools like IUCN red-listings to prioritise conservation efforts, usually focussing first on Endangered or Critically Endangered taxa in an effort to prevent species extinctions. So what do we do with a species for which a data deficiency prevents a confident assessment of conservation status? In the case of the Cape kurper, the uncertainty arises from genetic studies that show not one, but a number of genetically-distinct, range-restricted populations, each of which may require a separate risk assessment. The plan is to untangle the complex taxonomy to help focus limited conservation resources. The danger is that waiting for the results of genetic studies could result in extinctions before species' have even been described! In South Africa, a small but dedicated group of taxonomists and biologists are working together to better understand the diversity and distributions of thesis species, and conserve them accordingly. #conservationbiology #freshwaterfish #freshwaterbiology #livingrivers #endemic #threatenedspecies #biodiversityhotspot #iucnredlist #restorationecology #conservationgenetics #fynbosfish #beneaththesurface

The awesome silvertip shark (Carcharhinus albimarginatus) is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. Its populations are decreasing. Researchers suspect that silvertip sharks have experienced population reductions of more than 30% across the Indo-Pacific ocean over three generations. At some places, you’ll find an overall reduction of 90%! In the East Pacific, you‘ll still see a lot of those magnificent animals - which leads to the conclusion that they don‘t really migrate or interchange between populations.
