Elephants, some of the most intelligent and emotional animals can live between 60 to 70 years. Yet from 2010 to 2012 about 100,000 African elephants were killed.😢 Eye opening exhibit @smithsoniannmnh 🐘 #fashwand #wildlifejewels #smithsonian #smithsoniannaturalhistorymuseum #elephants

Karen is on a roll and she’s not slowing down on #WorldOrangutanDay! Most of the orangutan's forest habitat has been destroyed to make palm oil plantations; and unfortunately, these highly intelligent red apes are now extinct in much of Asia. On top of that, poachers often kill orangutan mothers and sell their young to the illegal pet trade. San Diego Zoo Global is working to raise awareness of the dangers all great apes face. We provide financial funding and support to various conservation projects and we’re a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which was started to promote a sustainable palm oil industry to limit the destruction of rain forests. Be a hero for orangs and look for products that are RSPO-designated as containing certified sustainable palm oil. #EndExtinction #sandiegozoo 📷: Ion Moe

Sawfish are an interesting marine species found in certain shallow seas - they are in the Ray family so not sharks even though some resemblance obviously - they can grow up to 7+ metres long so really large creatures but completely harmless to people, but (as usual) they are threatened by fishing and habitat destruction that has led to serious reductions in numbers #saveourseas #endextinction #stopoverfishing #instagood #instalike #instadaily #picoftheday #photooftheday - pic 1 from @unenvironment pic 2 by Unknown (who apparently thought it was ok to catch this endangered fish)

Thank you @jamessuter for sharing these important words about the harsh reality of rhino poaching in our world today.
As James says, we need to spread the word and help people understand what a problem we have on our hands. It is up to us to be the change and ensure future generations can enjoy these animals too. If you would like to donate to any of our rhino protection programs on the ground, please also click on the link in our bio ❤️ 🦏 ・・・

Orphaned rhino Balu. He was still emaciated at this stage, from being out in the bush alone without his mother for days. Rescued by the team at @hesc_endangeredspeciescentre - he is strong and healthy now.

So few people know how serious a problem rhino poaching currently is. We are losing hundreds of rhinos to the hands of poaching syndicates - so that their horns can be sold for huge amounts of money. If these animals were to go extinct it would not only be so sad, but also likely so hard for future generations to understand - that this happened and we ‘allowed’ it to. Brutal killings happening daily, and rhino calves left scared and alone. Without teams like @hesc_endangeredspeciescentre to save orphaned rhinos they die out in the wild. This is the reality we are facing.

Share this post, speak about it, report any suspicious activity. And donate if you can to those working hard on the ground to save every rhino that they can.

Hoy es el día mundial del orangután. Es un buen momento para anunciar que dentro de poco ya vais ha encontrar el café de #orangutancoffeeproject en #latiendadelosunicornios, tanto para tomarlo en la cafetería como para llevarlo a casa. ¿Quien habría pensado que ayudar a los orangutanes y a los granjeros de Sumatra es tan sencillo como tomarse un café riquísimo?

Today, orangutans have only humans to blame for having just a decade left on this planet. The palm oil industry, man’s apathetic attitude towards Indonesia's #rainforests and orangutans own biology is spelling doom for the #Bornean and #Sumatran orangutans. #Palmoil, you should know, has become increasingly pervasive in our lives through the thousands of manufactured consumer products that it is an ingredient of , most used on a daily basis by us such as food products, cosmetics, detergents, fuel, etc. You wouldn’t even realize that these products contained #palmoil even if you checked the given list of ingredients, as most companies, use alias terms such as ‘vegetable oils and fats’ or complex chemical terms such as ‘steareth 2’ or ‘Glyceryl Stearate’ among several other scientific names, possibly to withhold the fact about the presence of the controversial palm oil. Giant conglomerates like Pepsico, Kelloggs and Unilever to name a few are guilty of exacerbating the produce and demand of palm oil by using them in their products. In just a little more than two decades Indonesia has lost millions of acres of forests, more than the total land area of the United Kingdom!

Happy #WorldOrangutanDay!
Sadly all three orangutan species (Bornean, Sumatran and Tapanuli)
are critically endangered. Palm oil and deforestation are the primary reasons why they are going extinct. Luckily, AZA and zoo research is working to help save the great orange ape from extinction.

It’s estimated that there are only 43,000 koalas left in the wild, mainly due to habitat loss from deforestation.

▫️IT’S INTERNATIONAL ORANGUTAN DAY▫️
August 19th - Every Year!

To recognize the most iconic victim of the palm oil industry, International Orangutan Day has been set for August 19th, EVERY YEAR! This event is to help encourage the public to take action in preserving this amazing species.

▫️QUESTIONS⁉️ ➕ ANSWERS⁉️▫️

What are the possible answers to some of the key environmental issues of our time and threats of extinction❓

‼️It's time to sound the alarm on the plight of the Orangutan in Borneo‼️

If you live in the UK, please watch (or get it on i Player or at BBC WORLD) .
🔻RED APE: SAVING THE ORANGUTAN🔻
.
This alarming documentary was first shown on Thursday 10th May at 9pm on BBC 2 ( UK )

⬅️ Video short ( 1 of 2 ) ⬅️

❗️Orangutans spend 95% of their lives in the trees, but right now, Indonesia’s forests are disappearing at the rate of one football pitch every 25 seconds❗️

❗️Palm oil producers are wiping out Orangutans – despite multinationals’ promises❗️

❗️ The global multinational fmcg and food/beverage and snack giants ( and we know who they are ) are actually destroying bio-diversity on an unprecedented scale - and we continue to BUY their products❗️

❗️Enough already❗️

It’s time to ‘call out’ the multi-nationals who are ‘aiding and abetting’ the eradication of bio-diversity and wildlife on a horrifying scale.

In the absence of industry reform, multinationals such as those mentioned above must take responsibility. In 2010 they actually promised to take responsibility. Then, members of the Consumer Goods Forum pledged that by 2020 they would no longer buy palm oil from any company that decreased the net amount of rainforest.

WORLD ORANGUTAN DAY 🌏
~
Every year, more than 3000 Orangutans are killed or stolen from the wild. Deforestation, Palm Oil plantations, illegal pet trade, illegal wildlife sex trade, illegal bush meat trade and human-wildlife conflict all threaten the future of our red-headed cousins.
~
You can help save these Critically Endangered apes:
• Never pay to hold or pose with an Orangutan.
• Never buy an Orangutan as a pet.
• Report any suspicious or illegal activity such as trafficking, sale of or abuse of orangutans to authorities. EEI recommends the Wildlife Witness app by @tarongazoo and TRAFFIC.
• Educate your friends and family on ethical tourism. Check out organisations verified as ethical by @waspinternational.
• Boycott Palm Oil- check out @palmoilinvestigations for a list of names Palm Oil can be labelled as in products and choose sustainable, ethical alternatives.
• contact brands and manufacturers and demand a more sustainable, ethical oil in their products.
• Support organisations that rescue, rehabilitate and protect orphaned and abused orangutans, such as @theorangutanproject and @orangutanfoundationintl.
~
Their future is #in your palm.

❓HOPE▫️FOR▫️THE▫️FUTURE❓

We all have a responsibility to protect all these systems, to sustain life as we know it!

Image of Trees - Michael Kenna

Ecosystems support all life on earth, biodiversity creates the building blocks of these ecosystems.
.
Every living species has a roll to play, without them the system will collapse.
.
Don’t forget to look around and appreciate and never take for granted the biodiversity that surrounds you 😉

For one glorious example at 6.5 million acres, the Leuser Ecosystem is a world unto itself—a rich and verdant expanse of intact tropical lowland rainforests, cloud draped mountains and steamy peatlands. It is among the most biodiverse and ancient ecosystems ever documented by science, and it is the last place where Sumatran #orangutans, #elephants, #tigers, #rhinos and #sunbears still roam side by side.
.
But the Leuser Ecosystem exists at a tenuous crossroads. Despite being protected under Indonesian national law, massive industrial development for palm oil, pulp and paper plantations and mining threaten the entire ecosystem

Tropical regions cover 40% of the planet. #tropics #environment #biodiversity #climatechange #nature

Have you heard of Africa's Great Green Wall?
.
Planted to combat climate change and environmental disaster caused by DEFORESTATION
.
What if you found out that just FOUR COMMODITIES —commodities so pervasive in modern life that we encounter them daily—are responsible for more than half of the world’s tropical deforestation?
.
Surprisingly, all of this is true. Just four commodities—#beef, #soy, #palmoil, and #wood products—drive the majority of tropical deforestation.

Why does deforestation matter?
.
Forests store enormous amounts of carbon. When forests are destroyed, that carbon is released to the atmosphere, accelerating global warming.
.
Deforestation accounts for around 10% of total heat-trapping emissions—roughly the same as the yearly emissions from 600 million cars.
.
In addition to storing carbon, forests provide important habitat for a long list of endangered species—and they offer many other benefits, such as clean water, forest products, and livelihoods for indigenous communities.

Hanging comfortably from a tree in the Tanjung Puting National Park, Central Borneo, this orangutan seems oblivious to the serious problem its species faces due to the severe deforestation that is destroying the forests he inhabits, mainly for the extraction of wood and the cultivation of oil palm. Plantations are completely replacing forests in Central Borneo, and this is happening more and more as the demand for palm oil increases from the most developed countries. It's the most widely consumed vegetable oil on the planet and half of all packaged products contain it, from baked goods, ice cream and instant noodles, to shampoo and lipstick. If you choose not to consume palm oil, there are many products without it in the supermarket, it is up to all of us to reduce this demand.
Illegal logging is also a major problem, occurring in 37 of 41 Indonesian national parks. Illegal loggers dig canals to transport the logs, that drain and dry out the peat soils dramatically increasing the risk of forest fires, making Indonesia the world’s third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases with 75% of its emissions as a result of deforestation.
To recognize the most iconic victim of the palm oil industry, International Orangutan Day has been set to help raise awareness of their plights and aid in protecting them.
