We love this photo by @morkelerasmus ! It gives such life and character to #rhinos everywhere & reminds us that they’re #worthmorealive . Yet last year 1054 rhinos were poached. #saynotopoaching #standwithrhinos #rhino

Sometimes seeing more #endangered #tigers isn’t a good sign. According to a new report, a 5% yearly increase in Sumatran tigers spotting can largely be attributed to tigers fleeing unprotected forests as their habitat is being cut down and fragmented due to palm oil plantations. #worthmorealive #saynotopalmoil #palmoilfree #tiger @arjunanandphoto captures this coy bengal #tiger peeking at him

#elephantnews. Nearly 280 pieces of #ivory hidden in hollowed out logs have been confiscated. The ivory was found in an abandoned shipping container after officials asked the company owner to open the container and no one showed up to do so. #worthmorealive #saynotopoaching #elephant #elephants @charlotte_rhodes_photos captures this dreamy and beautiful elephant landscape

Plastics are slowly killing our sea creatures, fish, and birds. From micro plastics which enter the bottom of the food chain, to larger plastics which entangle animals & prevent their mobility to plastics which fill stomachs of animals tricking them into thinking they’re full so they starve, plastics are bad for marine ecosystems. we all need to curb our plastic behaviors. #saynotostraws #worthmorealive #marinemonday🐋🐳🐠 @taro.smith captures this adorable reminder of why we need to reduce our plastic consumption #reuseandrecycle

Each day across Africa, dozens of #elephants are killed for their tusks. We need your help to end the #ivory trade before we lose these magnificent animals forever. Together, change is possible. After years of campaigning, China is closing its ivory market. But other countries still allow this brutal trade. We must act now to reduce the demand for ivory and stop ivory trafficking.

Did you know that #tigers have striped skin and not just striped fur? The stripes are like fingerprints and no two tigers have the same pattern. A tiger’s stripes help to break up the outline of its body and make it hard to see. They also look like shadows as the tiger stalks through long grass in he moonlight. This awesome example of how a #tiger blends into its background is brought to you by @arjunanandphoto in #ranthambhorenationalpark
