Giraffes will always be looking down on us like this. Why? Well, they’re the tallest mammals on Earth. At about 6 feet, their legs alone are taller than many humans.

Happy #WorldTurtleDay. Leatherback turtles are one of the world's largest reptiles. They feed almost exclusively on jellyfish — except when they make the deadly mistake of swallowing plastic bags, balloons and other trash that resemble their favorite food.

Get up close and personal the leatherback turtle in our newest virtual reality experience with @3D_Vision3, “Drop in the Ocean.” Brought to life with support from @SCJ and @VulcanProduction, you can catch the public premiere of our unique ocean adventure starting TODAY at the @CalAcademy.

Our food system, our economies, our cities and our communities — they’re all adapted to the climate we currently live in. But what if the climate changes too fast for us to keep up? The fate of the one and only planet we’ve ever called home is uncertain. It is in everyone's interest to come together to address the challenges we face.

#MondayMotivation: Want to help combat #ClimateBreakdown? Talk about it. Climate change can lead to decision paralysis — it seems like such a difficult and complicated problem that often no one knows what to do about it or how they can make a difference, so they ignore it. But we encourage you to talk more about climate change even if you don’t have all the answers. That’s where creativity and solutions come from. And that’s what will help our leaders and decision-makers realize that climate change is an important issue for current and future voters — and be compelled to do something about it.

Meet the panther chameleon of Madagascar who loves sunbathing and enjoy a good feast of cockroaches. They change color for camouflage and to communicate. When carrying eggs, females turn dark brown or black with orange striping to tell males they aren't interested. When two males come into contact, they turn brighter colors to assert dominance.

The best way to keep freshwater clean for human use? Nature itself. Forests, rivers and wetlands filter pollution and store excess water, so maintaining those ecosystems are critical.
