Our elephant patrol unit is running out of money, we will be satellite collaring two elephants in October and really need more funds to keep out project going. Please dig deep and help us move the needle. I'm heading to LA in September to hopefully take it to another level. Help us directly with a contribution to our Forest & Elephant patrols!

I think the protection of the garibaldi as the state fish has worked.

As climate change causes Mediterranean waters to warm, hordes of native barrel jellies have begun arriving at Porto Venere in November, instead of their usual July. Photographer Davide Lopresti flipped this image of a winter sunset-illuminated late arrival to convey his sense of a world turned upside down. See more incredible images in our 2017 @bigpicturecomp exhibit, now open. // #barreljellyfish #jellyfish #underwaterphotography #naturephotography #conservationphotography

Photo of the day from @mermaidsforchange by @chiaraphoto, highlighting offshore drilling through her incredible eye catching photography!
"Will we ever learn from our mistakes? Offshore drilling comes with a risk factor too high for us to ignore. As we go though the shallow fossil fuel reserves, offshore drilling is conducted deeper and further, and with increased depth and harsher offshore environments, we see higher risk of accidents, fires and spills. Offshore drilling and the risks that come with it has caused massive disasters in the past. The Deepwater Horizon exploded and sunk, killing 11 people and injuring 17. Miles and miles of coastline were destroyed and are still recovering after 17 years, effecting not only the wildlife in it, but also the economy of those that still live and work close to shore. Tell the BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management) you oppose to the new lease sales of offshore drilling. Sign @Oceana ’s petition https://act.oceana.org/page/12373/petition/1?locale=en-US and let your voice be heard.

Early morning mists in the Chocó - the days warmth draws moisture from forest to sky, to rain down in a cycle that sustains life at its most luxuriant. Shot by @nickhawkinsphotography , together with @deepgreenphotography, @carlosgus86, @frank_pichardo, @luksth , @matthewcicanese. On assignment for @MashpiLodge. Co-produced by Tropical Herping, @newworldconservationphoto, @metropolitantouring. Mashpi unites science, ecotourism, environmental education, and community organization to help preserve the Chocó, one of the most threatened and biodiverse rainforests on Earth. Through the work of a talented team of artists, photographers, writers, and conservationists, #TheMashpiProject uses high-quality photography and visual storytelling to raise global awareness for these vanishing forests. .

ANIMALS HAVE EMOTIONS TOO!! @stevewinterphoto @natgeo

Here are 2, 14 month old Cubs I first photographed for the NGM TIGER Story. We need to realize deep in our hearts that animals have emotions too.
If we can treat them better - maybe we could find some empathy inside of us to treat each other better also.

There are only 3500 tigers left in the wild! We need to fight for the right of tigers to live - peacefully and without being killed for the traditional medicine market, tiger bone wine, tiger skin furniture and other trade. Help stop the demand for endangered species used in this practice!
Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families,
they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet.
They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not.

بر خلاف آنچه به نظر می رسد، تنها ساعت ساز طبیعت نیروهای کور طبیعت اند، یک ساعت ساز واقعی پیش بینی می کند، او هدفی از ساخت و کاربرد آن در چشم بصیرت خود ترسیم می کند. او نقشه صفحه ها و فنر ها را می کشد و برای ارتباط بین آنها طرحی در ذهن دارد. اما انتخاب طبیعی نا آگاه و نابیناست. این روند خودکار که توسط داروین کشف شد و اکنون ما آن را توجیه پیدایش و شکل هدف دار حیات می دانیم، هدفی در سر ندارد.اصلا نه سری دارد و نه چشم بصیرتی که با آن نقشه ای برای آینده داشته باشد. نه پیش بینی می کند و نه بینایی دارد. اگر او را ساعت ساز طبیعت بدانیم، او ساعت سازی نابیناست.

We are only just beginning to learn about the complex behaviour and intelligence in the animal kingdom. Any interaction led by a wild animal is a special experience. When a 1 year old, 6 metre long humpback whale decides to be your best friend, follow you and keep trying to touch you with its fins, that stays with you forever. Since being protected humpback whales are making a strong recovery around the world. Amazing to see, though whales still face many threats including from fishing, hunting and discarded fishing gear.

This image was taken in the Kingdom of Tonga

#IGTakeover by ILCP fellows @kaigner and @luksth who are on location with their first Ecuador Youth Conservation Photography Workshop. They believe: If we give todays young people the tools to understand their natural world through fresh eyes—by the time they become adults, we will have helped create an army of engaged, illuminated and effective conservationists: strong ambassadors for the earth, its creatures and its people.

Next stop: the lek of the emblematic Andean Cock-of-the-Rock (Rupicola peruvianus). A lek is a concentration of male birds in one specific area that gather to attract females. @luksth and @kaigner and their students spent the morning watching the males display, and then visited with Angel Paz, a local farmer who ceased a logging and hunting existence, for an ecotourism one. Angel has one of the most famous bird sanctuaries in the tropics, know for it's 6 different species of Antpittas—one of the most elusive birds in the rainforest due to its size and secretiveness.

Jaguar clawmarks gouged into a tree. Almost two centimetres deep into the bark, causing shavings to curl up like so much cardboard, they are a testament to the sharpness and power of this animal's weaponry.
 Cats use trees to sharpen their claws, but it's hypothesised jaguars also do it to mark their territory, perhaps combined with scent spraying. If that's the case, this sign might be jaguar for "MY PLACE. KEEP OUT!"
This photo was featured in my article on Jalova biological station in the magazine Biological Sciences Review in April. Taken 2016, Costa Rica.

The first of three troglobites I will present is the majestic cave millipede. On the surface world millipedes usually roam around dark damp places where they can find rotting leaves and other detritus to gnash on. Typically these arthropods are dark to blend in with the undergrowth or brightly colored to warn predators of their nasty taste. But when they evolve in caves they dont waste energy producing pigments and become colorless. Vision isn't dire in this dark zone so many species loose eyes as well. One characteristic of this millipede that remained unchanged is it's taste for rotting organic matter. #cavebiology #troglobite #cave #millipede #arthropod #myriopod #naturephotography #inverts #darkzone #gayoutdoors #getoutside #explore #nature #fieldwork #wildlifephotography #wildlife #hawaii #conservation #endemic #conservationphotography #lavatube #dark

Karen Forestry Department wildlife protection units are highly trained protected area managers and anti poaching specialists. Emerging from 50 years of brutal civil war they are working hard to secure the Karen States remaining ancient primary forests and incredible biodiversity. The region is facing multiple threats including poaching, dams, industrial agriculture and corporate land grabbing. #wwf #myrrs #reallyrightstuff #conservationphotography #wildlifetrade #wildlifeasia #elephants #ilcp #tigers #nikonasia #nikon

Female wild Asian elephant (elephas maximus) crossing a service road Thai/ Myanmar border. Thailands western forest complex and Myanmar's eastern Karen State make up one of Asia's largest contiguous protected landscapes. Elephants, tigers and countless other species have been moving across what are now modern borders for millennia. Lets keep it that way! #nikonasia #nikon #ilcp #wwf #tigers #myanmar #elephantfamily #myrrs #reallyrightstuff #elephants #wildlifeasia #wildlifetrade #conservationphotography

Musk thistle (Carduus nutans) is listed as a Class B noxious weed in New Mexico, meaning infestations are limited to certain portions of the state and management decisions are made locally to contain and stop the spread. It would be easier to hate if it weren't so beautiful.
