pretty pastel oyster plant growing over shingle on Rathlin Island. this lil blepper's habitat has declined due to shingle harvesting (mining shoreline pebbles) and trampling, which has scattered its Irish population into small fragments. to make things worse, Ireland is almost as far south as it survives in Europe, and so climate breakdown is probably gonna be the final nail in its coffin. sad reacts onli 😭 #oysterplant#mertensiamaritima#rathlinisland#extinction#mondaymotivation
Hares are in danger of being wiped out by an outbreak of a deadly disease which has spread from rabbits. Myxomatosis, which arrived in Britain in the 1950s and resulted in the death of 99 percent of the population, has now jumped to hares with experts now desperately trying to figure out the cause of the recent deaths. Since the first discovery of the mysterious deaths, an ‘overwhelming’ number of responses have been raised as hundreds of cases arose. Britain’s brown hare population has seen a decline of more than 80 percent in the last 100 hundreds due to hunting and illegal hare coursing with near total extinct populations in the south west. The virus is typically spread through blood-sucking insects and is nearly always fatal for the small animals. From data so far it is possible the entire hare population could be killed off by the outbreak of myxomatosis with the hundreds so far being nothing compared to what could come. While it may not seem too bad, the loss of hares to their ecosystems will have dire affects to many other species so it is vital that something be done to ensure the survival of the species. #usoa#u_s_o_a#universalsocietyofanimals#animal#news#animals#animalkingdom#nature#wild#wildlife#love#instagood#photooftheday#summer#instagram#follow#my#sos#saveourspecies#conservation#hare#rabbit#halloween#extinction#britain#🐰
