National Wildlife Federation  See the stunning wildlife & landscapes we work to protect!

With fangs and claws bared for battle, two tent-making bats have a split-second duel as they swoop toward a banana flower for a sip of sweet nectar.

Happy #internationalpolarbearday! Did you know:
Many of the polar bear's physical adaptations help it maintain body heat and deal with its icy habitat. The bear's outer layer of fur is hollow and reflects light, giving the fur a white color that helps the bear remain camouflaged. The skin under the polar bear's fur is actually black; this black is evident only on the nose. Polar bears also have a thick layer of fat below the surface of the skin, which acts as insulation on the body to trap heat. This is especially important while swimming and during the frigid Arctic winter. The bear's large size reduces the amount of surface area that's exposed to the cold per unit of body mass (pounds of flesh), which generates heat.

“Today’s passage of a bipartisan public lands package, including permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund and numerous conservation measures, represents a historic victory for our wildlife heritage and outdoor enthusiasts of every stripe. We urge the president to sign this bill into law posthaste.” – NWF President & CEO Collin O’Mara.

National Wildlife Federation was proud to help the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge surpass its goal, registering 1,040,000 gardens, and partnering with gardeners across the Americas to create networks of gardens to help save pollinators and ultimately our food systems. #pollination #beecounted #nativebees #bees #nativeplants #plants

All of the Atlantic and Pacific coastal affiliates of the National Wildlife Federation urged the Department of the Interior in a letter today to scrap its forthcoming plan to radically expand unfettered offshore oil and gas drilling along the coasts. The letter, addressed to Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, mirrors the bipartisan and unanimous position of coastal governors from Maine to Florida and Washington to California opposed to expanding oil and gas development on the outer continental shelf.

Great news! Legislation introduced in the House of Representatives today would protect wildlife and our coasts by blocking offshore drilling. NWF President & CEO said, “The bills introduced today will protect our oceans and marine wildlife — which support tourism, outdoor recreation, and fishing — and contribute billions of dollars of economic impact to coastal communities. We urge the Trump Administration to reject earlier proposals to expand offshore drilling as it finalizes its planned Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program.” Bills were introduced by the following lawmakers: @repfrankpallone, @repjoecunninghamsc, @repcarbajal, @repdavidcicilline, @usrepkathycastor, @rephuffman, @repmceachin, and Rep. Elaine Luria. 📸: Sea otter, California. Credit: Betty Bird
