#Regram #RG @enricsala: Today, New Caledonia has announced the creation of four fully-protected marine reserves, safeguarding 28,000 square kilometers of pristine coral reefs and surrounding waters. In these lush coral reefs around the remote islands and atolls of the Coral Sea, the fish have seen few divers, and it’s the sharks - blacktips, whitetips, silvertips, gray reefs, nurse sharks, and others - that preside over the reefs, alongside numerous green turtles that nest in the protected Entrecasteaux Islands. Thank you New Caledonia for this gift to the planet. Take a look at our @natgeopristineseas expedition in collaboration with @waittfoundation, which in 2013 conducted some of the first filming and scientific surveys of these remote reefs, informing their protection - link on my profile.

Dataka lives in a small community of seaweed farmers who are threatened by rising seas. The surrounding seas have risen about 7 to 10 millimeters per year since 1993, roughly three times today’s global average — and what scientists expect across much of the Pacific by the second half of this century. @adamfergusonphoto #adamfergusonphoto #globalwarming #solomonislands #risingseas #conservation

#Regram #RG @natgeotravel: Photo by @FransLanting One memorable evening I waded into a water hole in Botswana to capture a perfect reflection of a gathering of elephants at twilight with a rising full moon suspended in a luminous pink evening sky. The image has become a symbol for the primeval qualities of Botswana’s wilderness and the grandeur of elephants. I share it in recognition of World Elephant Day, August 12, to celebrate the majesty of elephants and to draw attention to the organizations that have forged a strong coalition aimed at reversing the poaching crisis that has decimated elephant populations almost everywhere. The @ElephantCrisisFund was established by @SaveTheElephants in partnership with @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn and @WildNetOrg. They support the right people in the right places and they are making a real difference. Check them out and lend your support so they can do even better. And follow us @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more intimate encounters with elephants. @ThePhotoSociety @NatGeoCreative #Elephants #Respect #Dignity #Conservation #Wonder #Naturelovers #Botswana

#Regram #RG @elephantcrisisfund: The most positive news for elephants in the last six months has been the final closure of ivory markets in China and the decision to close the Hong Kong markets over a five-year period. But that doesn’t mean the Ivory Crisis is over. Although the tide is slowly turning, much more needs to be done. A combination of visionary support, collaboration between governments and NGOs and an integrated approach is helping but we still have a long way to go in our struggle to save elephants. As we celebrate World Elephant Day, read how our valiant partners are battling the ivory crisis across Africa and Asia in our new ECF report out today by clicking on the link in the bio.

#Regram #RG @leonardodicapriofdn: Photo by @FransLanting The bald eagle is a direct beneficiary of the Endangered Species Act. America’s national bird has made a dramatic comeback as a result of the protection it gained under what many people have called the most significant legislation ever passed to protect wildlife. But now the Endangered Species Act is being reviewed in Washington DC for amendments that may significantly undermine its effectiveness to protect other species as well as it did for the bald eagle. That would be a tragedy; for eagles and for us. But it’s not a done deal yet. If you care about this, please inform yourself and support the organizations who are as vigilant as eagles to protect our wildlife. And follow @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom to learn more about the plight of wildlife around the world.

#Regram #RG @lionrecovery: This #WorldLionDay marks the one-year anniversary of the Lion Recovery Fund, which was created by @wildnetorg in partnership with the @leonardodicapriofdn. As we look back over this groundbreaking year, we know that recovery IS possible. Your support has equipped us to fund 28 conservation projects from 20 organizations across 14 countries! Check out the link in our bio to learn more about the dynamic efforts that will bring lions roaring back. Will you join us in this journey to #savelions?

#Regram #RG @leonardodicapriofdn: Today on #IndigenousDay, LDF is proud to feature our #IndigenousRights Program. LDF actively supports Indigenous communities who are on the front lines defending their lands, water, people and culture from mounting pressures. This includes Indigenous-led projects to map and monitor native territories, defend land rights, develop sustainable livelihoods, and promote public advocacy efforts. Follow the link in bio to read more about these projects.

#Regram #RG @nytimes: From @nytmag | In March, Geophysical Research Letters reported that the western part of #Greenland’s ice sheet is melting at its fastest rate in at least 450 years. Some scientists believe that the Arctic hasn’t seen ice melt similar to this in 5,000 years. If the ice sheet melts entirely, sea levels would rise 20 feet, leaving Lower Manhattan underwater. Jason Gulley, a geologist, and Celia Trunz, a PhD student in geology, have been conducting meltwater research by releasing a fluorescent red dye to determine how and why more rivers form on the surface of the ice sheet and what will happen as a result of these new rivers. So far, they’ve found that the rivers lubricate the ice slab, making the sheets move faster toward the coasts — which could cause even more icebergs to calve into the ocean. @geosteinmetz took this #aerialphoto in Greenland while on assignment for @nytmag. This week's issue of the magazine is an unusual one, with just a single story, by Nathaniel Rich: Humans almost saved the planet from #climatechange 30 years ago.

#Regram #RG @amazonfrontlines: The Waorani people have a message for the world:⠀

“We are a rainforest people, who live far away from roads. We hunt, fish and grow our food, and we heal ourselves with plant medicines. In the coming months, the Ecuadorian Government plans to sell our land to the oil companies. If we don’t act now, our rainforest homeland - where we have lived for thousands of years - will be put on auction and sold to the highest-bidder.”⠀

#Regram #RG @UNFoundation: Kayapo, Brazil @CristinaMittermeier / “A young Kayapo woman carries her baby in the forest. The people of the village of Kubenkrajke are raised to believe that that if they are good to the forest and the river, they will be provided with everything they need to sustain themselves. The Kayapo people live across 46 villages in the southeastern Amazon region of Brazil. Despite threats from deforestation, they have protected over 10 million hectares of rainforests and savannahs. Stopping deforestation is vital for sustaining livelihoods, protecting biodiversity and mitigating climate change. And indigenous people have an essential role to play. @UN’s REDD+ programme aims to safeguard forests globally, by helping developing countries reduce emissions from forested lands and invest in sustainable development. The programme is working to ensure that indigenous voices are heard in this decision-making.”.

#Regram #RG @lionrecovery: Niassa National Reserve in Mozambique is one of the last great wild places on Earth and one of the remaining strongholds for the African lion. Lions are disappearing in Africa, so every remaining stronghold for these iconic big cats—like Niassa—are crucial for their conservation. @niassalionproject (NLP) is protecting lions in this area through conservation efforts that focus on lions AND people. By working closely with community members, government officials, reserve management team, and tourism operators, NLP is working to build a sustainable lion-friendly community.

#Regram #RG @nrdc_org: Great news! In a big win for the vaquita, the U.S. Court of International Trade sided with NRDC, the Animal Welfare Institute, and the Center for Biological Diversity, and ordered the Trump administration to ban Mexican seafood imports caught with gillnets. Gillnets are the primary threat to the tiny porpoise, and with as few as 15 vaquitas left in the wild, the action comes not a minute too soon. Learn more about this victory in our profile link!
