It's a year of homage to big cats, check out this inspiring video from our friend @bertiegregory

Regrann from @bertiegregory - 🐆
I’m still thinking about big cats after world wildlife day. Here’s another jaguar, this time a big male taking a drink at sunset. During the dry season in Brazil's Pantanal, the jaguars stick close to the rivers. Not only do these rivers provide drinking water, they also concentrate the jaguar's primary prey- capybara and caiman. As a result, the best way to observe them is by boat. This gives an added benefit for filming as you can use the boat as a giant camera slider to create movement in the shot. Using a gyrostabilised rig and an electric motor, my boatman and I were able to smoothly (and almost silently) glide past giving the shot this rotation. Shot for a @natgeowild jaguar show. Also check out @stevewinterphoto 's jaguar story in the December 2017 issue of National Geographic Magazine. Shot on @reddigitalcinema - #regrann

Wilpattu, my heaven on earth, Marai Villu, Kulu Safaris camp site c2005. Any time in Willi is special, Sunsets especially so. With vehicles having left, one felt totally embedded in nature, wonderful colours and the sounds of the night, taking over from the sounds of the day, the jungle is magic. - #regrann .

World Wildlife Day is a United Nations initiative that coincides with the anniversary of the signature of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). World Wildlife Day is celebrated under a different theme each year. This year the theme is 'Big Cats: predators under threat". Big cats are among the most widely recognised and admired animals across the globe.
However, today these charismatic predators are facing many and varied threats, which are mostly caused by human activities.
Over the past century we have been losing big cats, the planet's most majestic predators, at an alarming rate. World Wildlife Day 2018 gives us the opportunity to raise awareness about their plight and to galvanize support for the many global and national actions that are underway to save these iconic species.

The 4th of December each year marks World Wildlife Conservation Day. It was started by the US State Department to put a stop to wildlife crimes like shark finning and poaching. Do the next generation a favor and donate to the @WorldWildlifeFund — 100% of your donation will go to funding training and equipment for protectors of wildlife.
There is truly no need for shark fin soup. It has no nutritional value or taste. All it is doing is torturing to death an apex creature in the ocean—by 100 million each year (this creature, by the way, is very slow to reproduce). Also, there is nothing magical or medicinal about pangolin's scales and yet this odd anteater is the most trafficked animal in the world. The only thing magical about it is how much it looks like a pine cone.
Organizations like the World Wildlife Fund actually make a difference. Last year, the giant panda, which was on the brink of extinction was upgraded on the IUCN list from "Endangered" to "Vulerable" — see?
Share with a friend who gives a hoot!

Regram from @hendrik.tjung - So many things are incredible about our forest friends.

Orangutans are born with an ability to reason and think. This large, gentle red ape is one of humankind’s closest relatives, sharing nearly 97% of the same DNA. Indigenous peoples of Indonesia and Malaysia call this ape “orang hutan” literally translating into English as “person of the forest.”

Today is World Wildlife Conservation Day, a time to honor and protect all of the incredible creatures that continue to dwindle away during the extinction crisis. Though it’s easy to be moved by many of our favorite species like this Sumatran tiger or Western lowland gorilla, it’s important to remember that even some of the smallest of species are also on the verge of extinction, and their survival is essential in order to maintain balance in their ecosystems. For example, animals like this Choctawhatchee beach mouse (swipe to see) are the critical link between plants and carnivores in their environments, but they are endangered due to ongoing development of their homes. Climate change is decimating corals like this robust ivory coral, which provide nutrients and shelter to a plethora of marine animals. Even insects like this American burying beetle, who are responsible for recycling decaying matter back into the ecosystem, are in danger of extinction.
The Photo Ark gives a voice to each creature, large or small, in order to inspire the world to help save them. Protection is essential if we are to survive ourselves. Start taking steps today to help preserve these species and their environments. Click the link in my bio for ideas about where to begin. Let’s see what we can #SaveTogether!

This week the world celebrated 'World Wildlife Conservation Day'. A day that celebrates and raises awareness to the efforts made to protect and conserve wildlife worldwide. We just wanted to extend that thank you to all the people that contribute to conservation from the Rangers who risk their lives to protect, to the people who donate to conservation projects, to the people who have cut down on plastic usage. Every little bit counts. #worldwildlifeconservationday#rangersavinganimals#wildlife#animalrights#cutplastic#projectarkfoundation#savinganimalsofourworld

Three important commemorations are falling together in time these past several days: #worldsoilsday, #worldwildlifeconservationday and #coralsweek. As we learn more about the links between #biodiversity, #habitat and #ecosystemservices in these seemingly disparate settings from #soils to #coralreefs, we can observe that they are #habitats connected by #watersheds and communities of people. So too are they bursting with #wildlife - an idea we are having to significantly rethink these days as we come to understand how many species and livelihoods rest directly on the health of the #landandsea. Wildlife spans the gamut from microorganisms that make up the soil and reefs under our care, to the mammals, birds, reptiles and fish … and, some would argue, even us humans! Let’s commit to enjoying, tending and protecting this #wonderfulworld we live in! A pelican stands guard on the shore of #Belize’s #CayeCaulker overlooking its beautiful reef, while fertile soils on #PalomarMountain in #SanDiegoCounty. .

There is no Planet B; and no Plan B. The state of nature and life on Earth is in our hands... 🌍💧🌟 .

As humans, we are obliged to protect the planet, and seeing as today is #worldwildlifeconservationday, I was inspired to post this by @robertirwinphotography 🐬🐠🐟 .

As you can see, this is an ugly black spot in the water. That is the human impact. The ocean dead zones, plastic pollution, and oil spills in our oceans. We can all do our part to help it. ⚡️💧 .

The easiest thing is choosing plants on your plate. Don't contribute to deforestation, pollution, creating ocean zones and destroying biodiversity... Choose #vegan 💕🌱 .

On Monday, @instagram announced searches for certain wildlife hashtags would trigger a pop up notifying the user of harmful behavior associated with animal selfies. This is a great step in the right direction to stop exploitation of exotic wildlife. Those “cute” animal selfies never capture what goes on behind the scenes to get that animal to cooperate. A lot of these animals are illegally taken from the wild, kept in horrible conditions, weaned from their mothers too early (popular with tiger cubs), or forced to go through a taming process (elephants and dolphins). This industry is saturated with abuse and neglect, it’s not right to commercialize on these animals and make money off of their suffering so people can get “likes” on their SM profiles. I encourage everyone to research the reality of tiger cub petting, swimming with dolphins, sloth and koala selfies, walking with lions, riding elephants, etc. etc. etc. Hats off to Instagram for taking a step to help combat this. *Swipe to see the warning* Tiger pic 📷: @stevewinterphoto

It's #worldwildlifeconservationday so here's some pics of animals from my travels to Argentina/Costa Rica 🦁

Unfortunately, yesterday thr president chose to shrink two of our national monuments by millions of acres to open them to oil and gas drilling. This is the case around the world, and the problem isn't just oil and gas. We're losing the rainforests at a rate of more than 150 acres EVERY MINUTE of every day, along with the animals that used to inhabit them. We cannot continue to ignore the destruction our everyday actions cause.
.
▪️7 million acres of land in the US have been lost to oil and gas drilling in the last 15 years alone
▪️worldwide, 137 animal and plant species become extinct every day because their habits are destroyed by deforestation
▪️91% of deforestation is for the purpose of animal agriculture
.
Consider eating less meat, switching to milk alternatives, buying less plastic, buying local, using public transportation or using hybrid vehicles, and educating yourself on where the items you buy and the food you eat comes from. The earth was made for all beings, not just human beings. Happy world wildlife conservation day ❤️

This is an awesome step forward from #instagram and #TRAFFIC

TRAFFIC is excited to have joined forces with Instagram to curb illegal wildlife issues on social media.

Searching on Instagram for hashtags associated with illegal wildlife trade, wild animals sold as pets, or selfies that may be linked to trafficking operations, will now trigger a pop-up warning condemning the sale of endangered animals and animal abuse.

The 'hashtag interstitial' was launched yesterday, on #WorldWildlifeConservationDay.

#regrann from @tajsafarismeghauliserai :
Our Naturalists Man & Varun were encouraged to hold Conservation awareness and Wildlife lessons at the British School in Kathmandu in November '17.

We were met by some really enthusiastic, and extremely well-informed kids, especially the 5th & 6th Graders.

As part of our #conservation initiative, we managed to conduct these lessons for 4 different age groups from 10-18 years and covering over 150 children with some difficult questions!

Children really are the key to our long term health of the planet, and starting from a young age is essential.

Care of the People : Our Naturalists Nikita & Pradip also reached out to a local school beside Chitwan National Park to indulge them with photos and some fun information about the animals and importance of the national park in their own lives.

Out of the 150 students present, only a handful have actually been to the National Park despite living less than 2km from the Core Area.
Hence the importance of involving local communities in the Conservation efforts is vital to the long term health of the ecosystem, for humans and animals alike.

Happy belated #worldwildlifeconservationday. While yesterday was intended to remind us of an appreciation for wild things and spaces, it seems the whole world is existing in the twilight zone at the moment. I️ spent the day driving in between (unbeknownst to me) closed off previously accessible kayak ramps in attempt to shoot some pics of the birds that are in the marsh right now. And our fearless leader signed away a bunch of public (not to mention ancestrally sacred) land to the whims of the oil and gas companies. But not to worry for there is a silver lining, his actions were almost instantly tied up in law suits by major environmental groups, companies like Patagonia, and tribal coalitions, and I️ was still able to park on the side of the road and sneak through the fence three separate times... Here for your viewing pleasure but for mother nature’s true enjoyment: a Say’s mud crab trying not to be seen, some marsh periwinkles waiting for the tide to rise, a gulf fritillary pollinating in the sun with a blurry brown anole feeding on flies, the governments attempts, and perhaps why, and then the reason I️ came in the first place, the tricolored or Louisiana heron wading in shallows hunting for small fish. Go out and stare at something other than your phone for a little while today. You might just see something beautiful. #wild #life
