Everyone needs to eat more plants.

Given that around 93 percent of people still eat meat, it’s difficult to imagine that everyone will cease doing so anytime soon. A world that eats far less meat, however, is already on the way. Meat consumption has been steadily declining in the U.S.—by 10% per capita since 2007, in fact.

In that year, for example, the U.S. raised and killed 9.5 billion land animals for food. As of 2014, that number plummeted by a whopping 400 million says Paul Shapiro, Vice President, Farm Animal Protection for The Humane Society of the United States. “What that means is that compared to 2007, last year almost half a billion fewer animals were subjected to the torment of factory farming and industrial slaughter plants–and that’s despite the increase in the U.S. population,” Shapiro explains.

Just because someone isn’t 100% vegan, doesn’t mean they’re not making a difference. As recent research demonstrates, 36% of Americans are open to plant-based eating, but most of those people aren’t vegans—or even vegetarians. They are amenable to change, however, and that change is taking the form of farm animals saved. 400 million of them last year, alone. .

💛 Hyenas have long been portrayed to be villains, scavengers, and have to some extent been stigmatized as sub-predators... this is very far from the truth, these incredible creatures are apex predators at the top of the food chain. They are highly intelligent and extremely brave. When it comes to their social structure hyenas have incredible family bonds which help them function as unit. It is because of anthropomorphism and a lack of understanding of the natural world that we have painted certain creatures as “good” and others “bad” instead of seeing the vital role each species plays in the delicate web of its respective ecosystem. When it comes to what we as humans deem important to save we are driven strongly by the fallacy of what we deem beautiful, what we deem good or bad. This is one of the reasons that many species across the globe are disappearing because they are simply not iconic enough in our eyes.

Day 23: My last day of posting about our beautiful planet and climate change. In this last post I would like to urge you to engage in doing your part to make a difference in how we care for this planet. Choose one action item and make it a part of the weeks, months and years ahead. Don’t wait for 2018. Start now. All that said following a plant based diet is probably one of the biggest impacts we can make in keeping this planet healthy so that all of us including future generations can thrive in.
I’m sharing photos of Siva Ashram in Costa Rica. A project that we are creating for so many reasons one of which is to plant trees, create beautiful gardens and show that we can live in harmony with nature. Over 1,000 trees and plants planted in the last 4 years. And we are not going to stop here.
Share with me in the comments what you will do or are doing to help with climate change. No matter how small or large your efforts are I would love to hear.
With @tatiseestheworld
Because I love this planet that we live on I’m going to share each day for 23 days one photo I’ve taken that shows how beautiful our planet is. The purpose of this is to help raise awareness and more importantly stimulate action amongst people to start or increase their efforts in helping combat climate change.

Rp from @dswt - We’re very excited to premiere THE SHELDRICK TRUST – 40 YEARS ON. Four decades in the making, the film charts how far we have come and how many wild lives we have impacted since Dame Daphne Sheldrick founded the DSWT in 1977.

This is just a sneak peek of THE SHELDRICK TRUST – 40 YEARS ON. To watch the full film, visit:

A lo largo del tiempo he notado como la gente cree que puede tener el control sobre todo y no es así, digo esto por que se ha convertido en algo habitual, si hacemos #fotografía para la “conservación” por qué no analizamos muchas de las malas prácticas que hacemos cuando nos encontramos trabajando, es común ahora ver este tipo de especies siempre sobre flores como heliconias o bastones de emperador.. ranas verdes sobre flores rojas o coloridas ? Suena raro verdad ? la fotografía in-situ abre una puerta donde nos obliga a mejorar los trabajos y #técnicas fotográficas, evitando el estrés y la manipulación excesiva donde no debemos ni hace falta realizarla, de verdad no es tan difícil sentirse capacitado para hacer una foto así. Es entendible que nosotros siempre queramos ver a los #animales, pero por un momento pregúntense si realmente los animales nos quieren ver a nosotros. •

How does one learn how to raise an orphaned baby elephant when it's never been done? Cows milk kills them. How do you invent a formula that keeps them alive? Daphne was the first to do this. Many babies died in her arms but #shepersisted & @dswt has saved hundreds who now live wild and still remember her and their keepers. It's an incredibly inspiring story. #Repost @dswt (@get_repost)

Close up a un neonato de bocaraca, cuando lo encontré podía tener días de nacido ahora debe de ser toda una Óropel. Estoy seguro que cuando vuelva me la encuentro en el mismo lugar.

#repost from @racingextinction

Menyalahkan keadaan dan manusia memang lebih mudah. Penyebab kepunahan massal keenam adalah manusia. Tapi aku sadar kalau menyalahkan tidak akan membawa perubahan. So, aku coba merubah diriku sendiri. Perubahan kecil tapi semoga saja berarti buat bumi ini. Aku mulai jadi vegetarian semenjak sebulan yang lalu. Tidak sulit. Karena tujuanku bukanlah diet, tapi berusaha menyelamatkan bumi.

1 perubahan kecil dari kita, sangat berarti bagi bumi ini. Perubahan apa yang mau kamu buat hari ini?

Siku – the final addition to our “October grandcalves” trio – was born on October 21. Her mum, Sunyei (who we rescued in 2003 after she fell into a hole as a tiny ten-day-old) is a lucky lady; she has lots of eager nannies, from her fellow wild-living orphans, like Loijuk, to older DSWT grandcalves, like Gawa!

Instead of another plastic toy or random gift under the Christmas tree this year, why not adopt a baby rhino for your friends & family!

Photo by @FransLanting This is Mike, a young male chimp we got to know in the Fongoli region of southeast Senegal. We worked with him and his family for six weeks, following them on foot through their forest. There are less than 200 chimps left in Senegal and their future hangs in the balance, just like it does for all chimps in Africa. Habitat loss and the bushmeat trade are the major threats to their survival. As we gather together with our own families during this holiday season, let’s not forget our extended family on the great tree of life. We can all help chimps survive by supporting the individuals and the organizations that protect them and the forests they depend on. Check the links below for the World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International, Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots, and @NatGeo Explorer Jill Pruetz’s Neighbor Ape project in Senegal, which we support through GlobalGiving.org online.

The #EndangeredSpeciesAct is effective and needed. It is the last line of defense for animals threatened with extinction. 🐘 Yet members of Congress are proposing bills to dismantle the act.
There IS something powerful you can do to help protect this act and #StopExtinction

Repost from @dswt using @RepostRegramApp - Ithumba finally received some much-needed rain, transforming the mud bath into a swimming pool fit for elephants — and the orphans are fully taking advantage of it!

Each of these elephants has been orphaned and, with our help, is working towards a life back in the wild. To meet them, click the link in our bio or visit:
