Cuentanos esta es tu cara cuando???? @Regranned from @natgeo - Video by @joelsartore | This least bittern arrived as a chick at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota (@wrcmn) after being found huddled up next to a house with no parents in sight. It had clearly been alone for a long time and showed signs of hypothermia. The bird weighed less than an AA battery and needed medical attention, so the center admitted it for care. Shortly after it’s admittance, this bird developed pneumonia and was placed on antibiotics and pain medication. Slowly but surely it regained its health and was eventually well enough to be released back into the wild to fly free.
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota is one of the nation's oldest and most active wildlife hospitals. This year alone, the center is expects to treat more than 13,000 animals, most of which are brought in by concerned citizens in the area. The center runs solely on donations and is able to keep these creatures alive and well through the generosity of those who support it.

Images by @joelsartore | Transforming your #pollinatormonday are three stages of the common lime butterfly, photographed at the National Botanical Garden in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. This butterfly is also known as the “checkered butterfly” because of its distinctive wing pattern, or the “citrus swallowtail” because of its propensity for the sweet juices of oranges, grapefruit, and lime. The lime butterfly is the most populous and widely spread of the swallowtail family and has a strong preference for citrus. It pollinates all species and varieties of native and imported citrus trees all over the world. In fact, this pollinator does its job so well, it’s even considered a pest in most citrus nurseries. As the eggs laid on the undersides of leaves hatch, the caterpillars dine on and defoliate them. However, without the work these butterflies do to pollinate, citrus plants would inevitably struggle.

The giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla) is, as its name suggests, the largest species of extant anteater. Their long nose houses an equally long, sticky tongue which can measure up to 50cm in length. Their rubbery skin and long hairs protect them from the bites of soldier ants and termites.
The giant anteater has a range extending from the southern tip of Mexico down to Uruguay and north-eastern Argentina. The species is at risk from habitat loss in parts of its range, this being a significant threat to Central American populations in particular. The grassland habitats that the giant anteater occupies make it particularly susceptible to fires. In Brazil, the burning of sugar cane plantations prior to their harvest leads to the deaths of significant numbers of giant anteaters from burn injuries. They are also frequently hunted for food or sometimes as a pest, and may also be collected for the pet trade.
The giant anteater will be a focal species for a fellowship project as part of our new Nat Geo Photo Ark EDGE fellowships, in partnership with National Geographic.
