#Repost @janegoodallinst We’re under ONE MONTH away from the FIRST EVER #worldchimpanzeeday this July 14th! How much do you really know about our closest living relatives? Did you know that they develop deep emotional bonds and can teach one another to use and make tools? Did you know that in 1900, there were estimated to be one million chimps in the wild? Did you know that today, there are less than 300,000? Did you know that all that separates us is a little over 1% of our DNA? Join us in celebrating #WorldchimpanzeeDay by standing up for our great apes cousins! Learn more link in bio. ALSO happy #fanartfriday! We 💚💚💚this illustration from @lyn_hui .

Sloths are slow-moving, tree-dwelling mammals found in the rainforest canopies of Central and South America. The main threats to the sloth are hunting, the illegal pet trade and loss of habitat due to logging and agriculture. LDF has been working to protect rainforests in Central and South America through the Quick Response Biodiversity Fund. Purchasing environmentally responsible forest products can help ensure sloths and their habitats will be protected for years to come.

Orangutans, whose name means “people of the forest,” are found only in the Southeast Asian islands of Borneo and Sumatra. Due to deforestation from the palm oil, timber and pulp industries, their habitat has declined by eighty percent in the last 20 years. In 2017, LDF launched the Leuser Ecosystem Action Fund to support organizations working to protect this critically endangered species. Avoiding products with palm oil will help support the survival of this great ape.

The largest animal ever known to have existed, the endangered blue whale exists in all oceans except the Arctic. Populations plummeted during the 20th century due to commercial whaling, but despite an increase in numbers, they remain endangered. Main threats include whale strikes, entanglement in fishing nets, and climate change. LDF is working to mitigate climate change and protect ocean habitat critical to the survival of blue whales. Advocating for whale sanctuaries can help these animals survive.

Great white sharks are top ocean predators and can be found in cool, coastal waters around the world. Although they have no known natural predators, they are threatened with extinction due to increased trade for shark products, unintended capture in commercial fisheries, and harmful culling policies. In 2016, LDF helped launched the Shark Conservation Fund to prevent extinctions and restore populations for all shark species, including the great white. To help save these magnificent animals, always refuse shark products and learn more about our efforts at www.sharkconservationfund.org.

Polar bears, the largest land carnivore, exist in the ice-covered waters of the Arctic. These animals are facing extinction due to their sea ice habitat shrinking as global temperatures rise from climate change. Through Oceans 5, LDF has supported projects to create marine protected areas throughout the Arctic, preventing activities that threaten the integrity of the marine environment. Less reliance on fossil fuels that contribute to a warming planet can help these species survive.

Photo by @daisyGilardini // While we celebrate #WorldOceansDay, the beauty and the importance of healthy oceans, scientific data urge us to act. Satellite records from NASA revealed that May 2018 was the second lowest Arctic sea ice extent in 39 years. Above average temperatures and high sea level pressure prevailed over most of the Arctic Ocean, while some surrounding continental regions were colder than usual.

Did you know that only 0.4% of South Africa's oceans are protected in marine protected areas, compared to an 11% global average? @OnlythismuchSA is a new campaign to advance the protection of the oceans around South Africa. Global scientific wisdom is showing that we need to effectively protect at least 30% of our oceans to enable and support long term sustainable use.

#Repost @paulnicklen This image is of the Nordaustlandet ice cap, just 600 miles from the North Pole. Yet, the temperature was in the high 60’s. The Arctic could be completely devoid of sea ice during the summer months in the next 10 to 20 years. But there is hope for change. Your choices, your voices have an impact. Use them wisely. #TurningTheTide with @Sea_Legacy

#Repost @tompkins_conservation A new generation of jaguars is born in Iberá for the first time in decades! Meet the newest additions to Iberá Park in Corrientes, Argentina. These two tiny cubs are the first newborns of our jaguar reintroduction program at Iberá Park and represent the future of their species in the region. The jaguar is the largest feline in the Americas and is currently in critical danger of extinction in Argentina, after having lost 95% of its original distribution. To help avoid the extinction of this species in Argentina, our team has been working urgently in recent years to help bring back jaguar to their native range in the northeastern wetlands of Argentina. The arrival of these cubs marks a historic moment for our rewilding work and for conservation. // ¡Por primera vez en décadas una nueva generación de jaguares nace en el Parque Iberá!
