#regram #RG @oceana: Without conservation laws like the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), the future for dolphins, whales, seals and other marine mammals could be bleak. The MMPA safeguards these important animals from harmful human activities such as oil and gas exploration. Don’t let special interests risk these vital protections. Tell Congress to #DefendMarineMammals and #StandForOceans by following the link in our bio. 📸: Alex Perez #ocean
#regram #RG @sierraclub: BREAKING NEWS: Trump just announced plans to shrink Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments. He doesn’t have the authority to shrink national monuments, but that apparently won’t stop him from trying. This land grab is illegal, and we'll be seeing him in court. While Trump hears from our lawyers, Congress needs to hear from you! Go to sc.org/monumentsforall and tell them to stand strong in protecting our public lands. #monumentsforall #nature #wildlife #publiclands #nationalmonument #nationalmonuments #protectbearsears #bearsears

#regram #RG @amazonfrontlines: What is life in a forest where the water has been poisoned? For more than half-a-century the Kofan, Siona, Secoya and Waorani peoples of the Amazon have lived downriver from Ecuador’s largest oil fields, which have contaminated their rivers and creeks and gravely impacted their health, while enriching the oil industry and providing fuel for the automobiles of modern society. Today, oil companies continue to pollute rivers and streams while using the allure of access to electricity to convince remote indigenous communities to allow these companies deeper into their territories. We believe that building indigenous-led solutions to these threats is fundamental to ensuring the autonomy and empowerment of the oldest guardians of the Amazon rainforest.

#regram #RG @nature org: Symon Masiaine, one of five local pastoralists on Team Twiga, citizen scientists who are managing a network of 30 camera traps, track giraffe individuals interact local communities and their camels at Loisaba Wildlife conservancy in Northern Kenya. Reticulated giraffe number less than 8,700 individuals— as a distinct species, it makes them some of the most endangered large mammals in the world. Until now, scientists and the world had only recognized a single species of giraffe made up of several subspecies. But according to the most inclusive genetic analysis of giraffe relationships to date, giraffes actually are not one species, but four. Current estimates are that giraffe populations across Africa have dropped 40 percent in 25 years, plummeting from 140,000 in the late 1990s to about 85,000 today.—Photo by @amivitale #camels #giraffes #africa #local
#regram #RG @wwf: 📷Image by @EverydayExtinction contributor @adriansteirn There hasn’t been a more dangerous time to be a pangolin (Pholidota). The species has become the most trafficked mammal in the world. They are illegally traded for their scales, as bush meat or for medicinal purposes. But the threat of their extinction rarely makes news. An organisation in Zimbabwe aims to change this by educating the public about an animal many may not know even exists. Enabled by the @TikkiHywoodTrust, a group of men dedicate their lives to rehabilitating captured pangolins. They are entrusted with caring for animals that have endured major stress, often having been transported many kilometres bound in a sack, starved and dehydrated. Eight species of pangolin exist, four Asian and four African, all appear on the IUCN Red List, ranging from endangered, to critically endangered and vulnerable, all eight of the species' populations are decreasing. With the depletion of the Asian populations, poachers have redirected their efforts to Africa.

#regram #RG @sea legacy: Photo by @simonagerphotography //Salmon farming has become a human rights issue in British Columbia, Canada. Indigenous people who have asked the industry to leave their territories for the past 30 years, are now occupying the farms because they no longer have enough wild salmon in their rivers to provide food for the winter. Marine Harvest and Cermaq have ignored them and continue to ignore them, going as far as to attempt to evict them from parts of their own territories. The current occupation of Midsummer Island fish farm by members of the Musgamagw Dzawda’enuxw lasting almost 80 days was ordered to an end by the Supreme Court in Vancouver yesterday. To add insult to injury Marine Harvest will be allowed to restock the farm with more diseased salmon smolts and continue decimating the marine eco-system of this coast. The occupation of Swanson Island by the Namgis Nation remains at this time. #turningthetide #getsalmonfarmsout #justinpjtrudeau @johnhorgan4bc @bcndp
#regram #RG @natgeotravel: photo by @andrea frazzetta // Rwanda. A picture of Muhoza, a Silverback Gorilla living in the forest of the Volcanoes National Park. There are only several hundred mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and about half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa. Gorillas can climb trees but are usually found on the ground in communities of up to 30 individuals. These troops are organized according to fascinating social structures. Troops are led by one dominant, older adult male, often called a silverback because of the swath of silver hair that adorns his otherwise dark fur. A gorilla group is named after the Silverback leading the family. Each gorilla group has distinct and unique characteristic quiet different from another. The animals are peaceful, gentle, social, and mainly vegetarian creatures. Many conservation initiatives are meant to aid mountain gorillas, and it is believed that their numbers may be steady or slowly increasing. Still, they continue to face major threats from habitat loss and poaching. Follow @andrea frazzetta to know more about my next projects #rwanda #gorilla #mountaingorillas

#regram #RG @unfoundation: This photo was taken by photographer @jasonbhouston as part of our ongoing #EyeOnClimate series—a campaign dedicated to raising awareness of climate change impacts and solutions around the @UnitedNations’ Annual Meeting on Climate Change, #cop23. Because of unpredictable flow levels and more and more rapid changes in the river courses, river travel, which is essential for regional trade around Puerto Breu, Peru, is becoming increasingly difficult. Human habitation of the Amazon can be traced back over 10,000 years, and over that time the indigenous tribes who live there have become intimately adapted to the predictable, well-established seasonality that defines these forests. The effects and impacts of #climatechange including rising temperatures and unstable hydrological cycles is leading to a laundry list of threats to those living in the Amazon, including more frequent drought, decreasing fish stocks, increasing prevalence of malaria and other diseases, crop failures, and forest fire.” -@jasonbhouston How is your #EyeOnClimate?

How someone could want to shoot such an intelligent, empathetic animal as an elephant is beyond me…But what is most concerning for elephants is that renewed imports of trophy ivory into the US might undermine the all-important ivory trade bans put in place by America and China.” -Frank Pope, CEO of @SavetheElephants, a grantee of the @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn with the @ElephantCrisisFund on Trump’s decision to reverse the ban on imports of elephant trophies from Zimbabwe into the US.

#regram #RG @nrdc org: From November 6 to 17, world leaders will gather in Bonn, Germany, for the 23rd U.N. climate change conference ( #cop23) to discuss next steps in the fight against climate change. Just one year into the historic Paris climate agreement, countries are plowing forward to fight climate change, including China, India, Mexico, and Canada. With President Trump’s reckless announcement of withdrawal from the agreement, the United States has a lot of work to do, and we must continue to urge Congress to stop jeopardizing our progress on tackling climate change.

#regram #RG @dailyoverview: Palm tree plantations surround the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The trees are cultivated in terraces cut into the contours of hills, to avoid erosion caused by streaming water. Malaysia is now one of the world’s largest exporters of palm oil – used primarily as a cooking ingredient – shipping nearly 18 million tonnes per year. The rapid expansion of palm oil plantations in the world’s tropical regions is becoming an increasingly significant source of carbon emissions. Clearing the native trees to make space for the palms is projected to add more than 558 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by 2020 – an amount greater than all of Canada’s current fossil fuel emissions. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @digitalglobe
