What do you see in this photo?

This little gem was snoozing away the afternoon in the middle of the city, being serenaded by the sounds of ambulances and chainsaws. It's amazing how adaptable our wildlife can be. Not to mention its amazing camouflage!

Sunrise on a snowy day in Colorado. The first snow is always beautiful and then I'm over it by January. Good thing I have a Thailand trip to break it up! Where do you like to go to escape the winter?

It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it! A lot of people mistakenly believe that vultures are dirty animals, but in reality they are quite clean. Their bald heads are designed to prevent carcass juice from sticking to their faces, and they naturally clean up the environment as well. By feeding on roadkill and carcasses, they prevent diseases such as botulism, rabies, cholera, and even anthrax from spreading to humans. We can easily help vultures by avoiding the use of poison in pest control, and by not littering. Pictured here is a black vulture, and scientifically speaking, one of the cutest vultures on the planet. .

Oh beautiful redrock desert...I'll never stop fighting for you. โคโคโค.

The San Rafael Swell area of Utah is in danger of being auctioned off and privatized, but many conservation orgs and Native American tribes are fighting it. If you want to help, you can donate to the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance (@protectwildutah). They have tirelessly worked to protect the pristine landscapes of the redrock country. I've always been a jungle girl, but this area stole my heart when I finally got to really explore it on my own. Now I love the desert almost as much as the jungle, and will fight to protect both. .

This woman is amazing. She has rescued over 50 elephants and given them a home where they can live freely, away from abuse and exploitation. She has a relationship with each and every elephant she has rescued, and dedicates her life to their happiness. I am happy to work with her and excited to return to Thailand to care for elephants in January with a new crew of motivated volunteers. Elephants are intelligent and caring, and capable of showing love and affection. It's a unique experience to work with them and connect with them on a level that most could only dream about. My 2019 elephant volunteer trip is full, but I'm happy to put you on the waiting list for the next one if you want to make this dream a reality and travel with us. Just get in touch. โ™ก

The fall colors at @tracyaviary are amazing! Mostly because of Dali, the great green macaw. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงกโค

Thanks, Helen, for this gorgeous photo!

Speaking of macaws, I'm putting together a new trip to Costa Rica this spring to work with wildlife at a rescue center in the jungle. That will be sloths, macaws, parrots, anteaters, monkeys, and more! Anyone interested? Let me know!

Calling all bird lovers!

Our previously sold-out trip, Bird Rescue & Banding in the Tropics, just had one spot open up. Join us, March 2019 in the jungles of Belize! First, we will stay at a bird rescue for one week caring for orphaned and injured tropical birds, many of which will hopefully be released back into the wild. Next we will spend three days at my favorite eco-lodge in the country, where we'll be banding birds for scientific research. We'll also get the chance to canoe down a river between lush vegetation and breathtaking cliffs, birdwatch with knowledgeable guides, swim in a natural forested pool, and relax in our hammocks while taking in the unique and mystical ambience of the Central American rainforest.
This is one of my most popular and affordable trips ever, so get in touch and book quickly or it will get snatched up! Visit www.jennieofthejungle.com for more details.
