The greatest single step taken to ensure the future of elephants in our world was the Ivory Ban recently enacted by China.
Famous individuals in China like former NBA star Yao Ming have trumpeted WildAid’s mantra “When the buying stops the killing can too"
The murder of elephants and other species for their parts needs to stop.

Real community conservation that is based on the continued life of the species rather than it’s death can result in greater and more consistent economic rewards for the future of the local people and the species.
With poaching still a problem throughout the world - PSA campaigns based on economics like @WildAid - WORK - and the numbers show that they WORK.

Dimension and detail, plus the perfect pair of striped pants, gave Erik Marthaler’s (@erikmarthaler) #WHPblackandwhite submission an edge. The Chicago-based photographer took this image from a unique vantage point on the Sears Tower.

Ageless Beauty | Photograph by Nima Zadshir
“I had never given much thought to an old woman’s hands until I looked at my grandmother’s wrinkled ones covered with age marks,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Nima Zadshir. “Now I regret not giving voice to what those hands represented. Funny how something so ordinary becomes holy when viewed through the lens of thanksfulness.”

“Beautiful Nima. I love what you wrote, and how intimately thoughtful your words are — they elevate my experience with your powerful portrait. I love how quiet your photo is, and because of your caption, I feel your regret and thankfulness. This frame is no longer just ageless hands holding a flower. Rather I feel your reflection on a passed moment. Well done. Very well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

Photo by @FransLanting Trees covered in Monarch butterflies is what you can find in the mountains of southern Mexico if you know where and when to go (Michoacan between November and February). Until the 1970s the destination of migrating Monarchs was a mystery, but when I first visited in the 1980s it had become a place to go to not just for butterflies, but for visitors as well. Unfortunately, since then the Monarch population has plummeted by more than 80%, largely because of widespread use of herbicides in the US, which kills the milkweed plants they depend on. To get a sense of the astonishing numbers of butterflies (more than 50 million!) that used to gather in Mexico go to @FransLanting and check some of the links below to learn more about the plight of the Monarchs. @ChristineEckstrom @ThePhotoSociety #Monarch #Endangered #CenterforBiodiv #Monarch_Watch


#Steve, un nuevo tipo de aurora boreal ✨
Fotógrafos científicos canadienses identificaron otro tipo de aurora hace unos años: una breve franja de plasma púrpura reluciente y comenzaron a investigar qué es lo que lo está causando.
El resultado sugiere que hay una manifestación de partículas aceleradas, calentadas y cambiantes viniendo desde el Sol que interactúan con una parte particular del campo magnético de la Tierra en la ionosfera.
