Photo by @amivitale. Twelve year old mother giant panda, Si Xue explores her enclosure at the Wolong China Conservation & Research Center for the Giant Panda in Sichuan Province, China. Because of their low-energy diet, pandas avoid stressful situations and exertion.

It’s hard to imagine, but these animals were once as mythical and elusive as Bigfoot. They have been around for millions of years, but were only made known to the western world within the last century. The first panda was captured alive only in 1936.
After years of research, scientists have learned how to successfully breed pandas in captivity. With an adult population estimated at more than 1,864 wild pandas and 500 captive pandas, they have been upgraded from endangered to threatened. In a region where bad environmental news is common, China is on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador.
I have recently published my new book, Panda Love, featuring my long-term panda work made on assignment for National Geographic. See more on my feed @amivitale.

This mandible belongs to a mule deer killed by a lion. The deer was a few weeks dead by the time I arrived. I occasionally found interesting growths or anomalies in the deer I would pick up and this was a cool one. The first molar did not grow in properly and left this gnarled mass in its place. Somehow, no gum disease or bone deformity resulted. I'd age this deer at about 5.5+ years. The lingual crests are still present on many teeth, but heavy wear is beginning to show. It's amazing the ailments wild animals live with. I've found deer that looked like they were probably starving to death from their teeth rot or they were so old the teeth were worn to the gum line. The lion or coyotes that took them out probably did them a favor. #mountainlion #puma #lion #conservation #research #cougar #bigcats #tracking #biology #anatomy #nature #wildlife #skulls #deerskulls #mandibles #ecology #necropsy #hunting #hunt #hunter #deer #muledeer #blacktail

I twisted my ankle chasing after this beauty. Woodhouse toads (Anaxyrus woodhousii) are very common in Nebraska, but the excitement of seeing one hasn’t worn off yet 🐸💚 #frog #toad #woodhousetoad #nebraska #country #fieldwork #wildlife #greenandgold #conservation

#Jaguars in #Honduras are no strangers to human-dominated landscapes, like pineapple plantations, cacao plantations, and even people’s backyards. Our #scientists on the #JourneyoftheJaguar visited cacao #farmers who are happy to be neighbors with the big cats--incidental crop protectors--and discussed future incentives for protecting jaguars on their lands. We're making a lot of progress securing the #JaguarCorridor in and around #nationalparks in the country, stepping up anti-poaching patrols and monitoring, and winning commitments from the government. Learn more about all our jaguar work and follow the Journey at journeyofthejaguar.org. #jaguarjourney #jaguar #jaguarsofinstagram #bigcats #wildlifeprotection #wildlifeconservation #conservation #conservationadventure #humanwildlifeconflict #humanwildlifecoexistence #changingheartsandminds #habitats #predators #ecosystems #predatorsunderthreat #actforcats

Did you know every tooth brush ever created is still somewhere on this planet?
For too long people have accepted plastics, but it's time we say, "enough is enough!" Going strawless is so simple. All you have to do is say no to a straw, and you are helping save 500,000,000 straws being wasted every. Single. Day.
When you say no to a straw, people ask questions almost every time, which gives you a perfect way of being able to talk about how they can help our planet as well!
My petition to ban the use of single use plastic straws in Michigan, has 384 signers, and I know we can make a change, but we can only do it if we all work together! Please sign and share this petition! Link is in my bio!

One of the most powerful, effective, & positive things you can do to make a difference for your health, the animals, and the future of this planet. #govegan
Repost @cowspiracy
Animal Agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, habitat loss, ocean dead zones, deforestation, air & water pollution.
Also the cruelty it inflicts on Animals radiating a vibration of violence and it’s responsible for many diseases. Nothing good happens from feeding on the suffering, violence, & death.

Walking with cheetahs will be etched in my mind forever. I don’t know why it didn’t scare me. It is definitely a leap from swimming with dolphins. Yet, it was so beautiful and intimate and one of those things you never forget. I am forever grateful for the animals that have let me have a connection and a profound glimpse into who they are.
Happy Caturday!

Festival Anual de Yulin na China. O mundo se revolta. Traduzindo as frases de algumas dessas celebridades:
"Parem a tortura"
"Parem de esfolá-los vivos"
"Parem de fervê-los vivos"
"Parem a tortura"
"Parem de queima-los"
"Parem de matá-los"
"Parem a violência"
"Juntos somos fortes"
"Nos podemos conseguir isso"

Esse festival é anual na China e dura 9 dias. A premissa maior é causar o maximo de dor possível aos animais, torturá-los o maximo q se puder antes de consumí-los porque acreditam que a dor "deixa a carne saborosa". Asiáticos e precisamente chineses têm crenças milenares...vide a tal "medicina chinesa" onde se tem coisas absurdas e crueis como "extração de bile de urso para tratar úlcera " estando o urso vivo numa jaula amarrado de lado. Nem toda tradição é aceitável; ou é vedadeira nos seus propósitos. Assinem a petição na Bio

Pesquisem #stopyulinfestival2018 e assinem

Regrann from @edonohoe304 - China’s idea of a ‘festival’. The annual Yulin Festival has started in China and will go for the next 9 days! Please take a second to sign the petition against this fucking atrocity! Link in bio

Two lessons learned after spending the morning on Lake Union with @pugetsoundkeeper. I was part of a group of 20 out to collect trash along the ship canal.
1. There is a LOT of trash along the banks of the lake. We pulled out over 150 lbs of junk, including shoes, sweaters, bikes, wrappers, styrofoam and lots of plastic pieces. Yuck!

2. Traveling at water level gives a whole different perspective on this beautiful city. And wow, is it gorgeous. I feel so lucky to live here.

Nets don't belong in nature!
.
@jana_tommova shot with @ikelite at Dahab's Laguna. This is a stunning site for diving, snorkeling, and fun freediving but unfortunately is also full of nets. Some of them are placed there on a daily basis while many others are abandoned and are left hanging and free to catch corals and marine life.

Photo by @amivitale. Sixteen year old panda, YeYe and her two-year-old female panda Hua Jiao explore their enclosure at the Wolong Nature Reserve managed by the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda in Sichuan province, China November 6, 2015. YeYe's 2 year old cub was released at the Liziping National Nature Reserve on November 19, 2015. Hua Jiao is the fifth panda released into the wild over nine years.

My first book, "Panda Love: The Secret Lives of Pandas," about these adorable ambassadors was released earlier this month. Currently available signed copies have sold out. However, you can still order a signed copy on backorder. Signed copies will begin shipping again in Sept 2018.

A orca tail slaps the ocean’s surface after killing a large green sea turtle. Frigate birds are in close attendance hoping to snatch bits and pieces from the carcass. They appeared especially interested in scavenging parts of the turtle’s stomach and intestines. As far as I know the remote western reaches of the Galapagos are the only place in the world where orcas regularly hunt sea turtles. It was quite a wild and primal experience to observe the entire hunt from our tiny zodiac. Shot on assignment for @NatGeo in collaboration with @darwinfound @parquegalapagos @pelayosalinas

@myfwc - What should you do if you see a beached marine mammal? 🤔Don’t push them back into the water! While we appreciate your concern and desire to help save marine mammals in trouble, we are here to help and want to share a few reminders. Marine mammals strand for a reason, often the animals are sick or injured. Pushing them back out to sea delays examination and treatment and often results in the animal re-stranding in worse condition. If you encounter a beached marine mammal, call our Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922). @FWCresearch #Beach #Marine #Mammal #Ocean #Reminder #Wildlife #Conservation #MyFWC #FWC #Manatee #Florida - #regrann

The arctic wolves’ glamorous white coats give them the perfect camouflage for arctic climates. These predators have two thick layers of fur, helping them survive the extreme cold they’re subjected to. The first layer is the ultimate raincoat; it’s a waterproof barrier that keeps the wolves’ skin nice and dry. Dry skin = warm wolves!

When we went to the zoo for my birthday we of course wanted to feed the giraffes; well, while we were feeding them it turns out someone else was celebrating their birthday too, little baby Lulu the giraffe!! She had a cake and everything! I mean who could ask for a better birthday buddy?! Happy 1st birthday sweet one, and thanks for such a great day @woodlandparkzoo! Can't wait to go back and feed the rhinos! 😍😄💖🦒🦏

"One cannot look deeply into the eyes of an animal and not see the same depth, complexity and feeling we humans lay exclusive claim to." - Nan Sea Love. Every life has a value. We need to show more love to animals because they are the ones who will love unconditionally without question.
