Beaver superhero! These aquatic rodents help the environment in so many ways, and they're making a comeback. Check it out: sc.org/beavers (📸: @joelsartore/National Geographic Photo Ark)

This spectacular bird is an Andean Cock-of-the-rock, photographed at @dallas_world_aquarium. The national bird of Peru, this species is easily identified by its fan-shaped crest and brilliant orange plumage. They get their name from their preference for rocks and ledges as the base for their mud cup nests, which the females are responsible for building. Males gather in groups in a location called a lek to perform elaborate courtship displays. They even try to attract females with a call that sounds like a pig squealing! They bob up and down, bowing and hopping around to display their bright plumage. Males will mate with more than one female and, once she lays her eggs, she cares for the chicks by herself. Follow @joelsartore to see another video of this spectacular bird! #PhotoArk #andeancockoftherock

Los cuatro cuernos puntiagudos que sobresalen del hocico del camaleón de cuatro cuernos contribuyen a la apariencia de dragón del animal. Estos resistentes reptiles pueden tener seis cuernos, o más, en cualquier momento dado. Sin embargo, sus cuernos son frágiles y pueden romperse fácilmente.

#Cloudforest is one of the most #threatened terrestrial #ecosystem to #climatechange and land-use change due to its very restricted climatic requirements, as they are only found in areas with a very narrow altitudinal gradient, and because they have a set of highly specialized species that depend on cloud-related microclimates and mountain topography to live. In #Mexico, cloud forests cover less than 1% of the territory surface and the largest extensions of these forests are found in the state of Chiapas, including the #sierramadredechiapas. If we do not act soon, more than 50% of the cloud forest could disappear in the next few years along with all the species that live in it like the #tapir.

El #bosquedeniebla es uno de los #ecosistemas terrestres más #amenazados por el #cambioclimatico y el cambio de uso de suelo debido a sus requerimientos tan restringidos, ya que encuentra únicamente en áreas con un gradiente altitudinal muy estrecho, y porque tiene un conjunto de especies altamente especializadas que dependen de microclimas húmedos y con una topografía montañosa para vivir. En #México, los bosques de niebla cubren menos del 1% de la superficie del territorio y las extensiones más grandes de estos bosques se encuentran en el estado de Chiapas, incluyendo la región de la #sierramadredechiapas. Si no actuamos pronto, más del 50% de estos bosques podría desaparecer en los próximos años junto con todas las especies que viven en ellos como el #tapir.  #tapiresdelasierra #landscape #zsledgeofexistence #edgeofexistence #edgefellows #natgeo #natgeoexplorers #natgeoexplorer #wcn #wildnetorg #forest #photoark #extinction

RepostBy @wildlifejamaica: "Happy #worldsnakeday Jamaican Boa (Chilabothrus subflavus) 🇯🇲aka Yellow snake,(juvenile 1-3,last adult) is #endemic and is #jamaica s largest native terrestrial predator and feeds on #birds #bats #coneys and #rats by constriction.The Jamaican Boa is NOT venomous! none of Jamaica's 7 extant species of snakes are venomous . Not only is the boa not a threat to humans, it's actually extraordinarily beneficial. Rats are a major component of the boa's diet in forest edge / farm habitat, so when a farmer finds one coiled in a coffee tree or banana plant, it's digesting a meal which would have otherwise damaged their crops. If you're lucky enough to have a wild boa take up temporary residence in your house, you will find that your rat problem magically goes away.

Unfortunately, most Jamaicans are not as thrilled with the idea of having a boa in their house! The traditional Jamaican antipathy to reptiles (in general) & snakes (in particular) is a serious problem in their conservation. In the absence of an education programme, snakes are killed on sight.This intense persecution of such a benign and beneficial animal, coupled with continuing habitat loss and fragmentation of remnant forest patches, is a serious threat to Jamaican Yellow Boa populations. #jamaicanboa #jamaicansnake #snake #boa #reptile #cute #snakesofjamaica #nature #naturephotography #worldsnakeday2018 #snakesofinstagram #876life #876 #harmless #conserve #caribbean @natgeo #photoark #wildjamaica #repost @joelsartore" (via #InstaRepost @AppsKottage)

It was dead silent, as these images speak louder than the most chaotic mind. Afraz was at a corner, staring at his favourite wall in this powerful room. He asked me - what is happening uncle Nashie? I told him we have lost our direction, succumbing to our entitlement, feeding our ego and soon, destroy ourselves. 10 minutes later he replied - not yet. It's as simple as that. I took my camera out and changed my focus point. The shot is now freezed, with a story to be told in time. He held my hand and we walked out of the exhibition, with a lighter heart and a mission. The seed is planted, the tree will grow, and the roots will anchor deep. The world will change.

Did you know that giant anteaters have a sense of smell that is 40 times better than a human's? This heightened sense allows them to sniff out ants or termites up to several miles away. This is a helpful feature for this ant-hungry species, who consume up to 30,000 of the insects a day! Amazingly, their tongue is usually two feet long, the largest in relation to body size of any mammal, with small backward-pointing spines covered in sticky saliva that aid in feeding.
Sadly, giant anteaters like this one at the @sunsetzoomhk have experienced a population decline of around 30% over the past decade and are listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. Habitat loss, roadkills, hunting, and wildfires have been substantially impacting the populations over the past 10 years. In some areas, giant anteaters are hunted for food; this is especially true in the Caatinga area of Brazil. Their skin is often used to manufacture harnesses and other leather products, as well as for medicinal use. In Central America and southern parts of its range, there have been many records of local population extinctions. #PhotoArk #vulnerablespecies #giantanteater For more like this follow @joelsartore!

Jijabai Kore, 60, collects 10 pots of water each day from trucks that have to deliver water to her village in times of drought. ••• In the summer of 2016, wells had run dry in thousands of villages as parts of India experienced record drought, as a result of consecutive failed monsoons. Global temperature records were broken each month in 2016 and India itself recorded its highest temperature of 51C. In conjunction with El Nino effects, this caused extreme environmental stresses in large parts of the country. ••• The state of Maharashtra was identified as the country’s worst affected area where up to 15,000 villages were believed to be without water. ••• As global temperatures continue to rise, the record drought of 2016 is predicted to be a recurring event in a country that is struggling to adapt to a warming world.

“The emu is such an under-appreciated creature: solar-radiation reflection on its wingtips, camouflage through the shape of its sleeping position, evaporative air-conditioning lungs, fasts for weeks when needed, and avoids dingo attacks by jumping at the same moment the predator lunges because they know they can out-jump them. They can sprint at 50km/hour and can run for an age. Their booming vocalisation can be heard 2km away. They have a secondary membrane over their eyes to protect from dust storms. Add to all this homeothermic abilities to regulate its body temperature regardless of environment, and you have a feat of evolution that comes as close to engineered as you can get. Crazy.” By @conservationjournal
