This was meant to be @icelandfoods Christmas advert but Clearcast (Advertising Standards Agency) banned it on the grounds that it was too ‘political’. Nice one Clearcast lets keep tearing that forest down, with any luck we’ll be able to raise the temperature up 1.5C and make life on Earth impossible 🌳❤️🌍🐒 @greenpeace

Last week we were thrilled to receive a copy of 5 year old Reggie’s project about gorillas. He was inspired by a recent trip to @howlettspark by our work and hopefully this has fuelled a lifetime of learning about conservation - education is key to saving endangered animals. #gorillas #gorilla #education #conservation #backtothewild #inspire

Throwback to a year ago when I was doing research at @theaspinallfoundation Javan Primate Rescue Centre in West Java, Indonesia. Here you see a Javan gibbon who is being rehabilitated in order to hopefully be re-introduced to his forest home. Javan gibbons are Endangered and are facing threats such as deforestation, forest fragmentation, and the illegal wildlife pet trade. Read up on these amazing, beautiful primates and see what you can do to help their conservation!! #primatesarenotpets #indonesia #primatology #primateconservation #primates #java #javangibbon #backtothewild

We are delighted to announce the first baby to Boumango’s group in Gabon!
Sophie is the oldest female at around 23 years old, and member of the first group released in the PNPB in 2001. She had her first infant in Feb 2009, called Antsia, fathered probably by Marco. This then appears to be her second baby, slightly later than expected, but maybe she just didn't warm to Tonga (who took over the group when Marco died). Sophie transferred from Tonga's group to Boumango's in Dec 2015, and is the first female to give birth in this newly-formed group. Most likely this is Boumango's very first infant, so very important for increasing the gene diversity of the next generation. And suggests we might have several births this year in that group, as there were seven females in the group throughout last year, including actually Sophie's first infant Antsia. We wait and see... #gorilla #babygorilla #babynews #gorillaconservation #westerlowlandgorilla #gabon #conservation #wildlifeconservation #conservationworks #savethemall
