Giant Pandas - China's most sacred animal:
According to legend, the panda was once an all-white bear. When a small girl tried to save a panda cub from being attacked by a leopard, the leopard killed the girl instead. Pandas came to her funeral wearing armbands of black ashes. As they wiped their eyes, hugged each other, and covered the ears, they smudged the black ashes.
.
Many Chinese philosophers believe that the universe is made from two opposing forces, the Yin and Yang. The panda is one symbol of this philosophy with its contrasting black-and-white fur. The Chinese believe that the gentle nature of the panda demonstrates how the Yin and Yang bring peace and harmony when they are balanced.
.
Pandas have been a symbol of peace in China. For example, hundreds of years ago, warring tribes in China would raise a flag with a picture of a panda on it to stop a battle or call a truce. #savingparadise

No matter where you are in the world, we all depend on the Leuser Ecosystem. It regulates the global climate by storing massive amounts of carbon in its peatlands and intact forests. When its rainforests and peatlands are destroyed from fires intentionally set for #ConflictPalmOil plantations, all of that stored carbon is released into the atmosphere, worsening the effects of climate change. .

Come one, come all. Please join me at my new gallery in SoHo, New York this Saturday. This polar bear and I will be there to greet you. Saturday (April 22nd-Earth Day) at 347 West Broadway, SoHo, NYC #gratitude #conservationphotography #gallery #fineartwithpurpose

This beautiful little creature is the smaller of the two sandhill crane colts born just 3 weeks ago in the northern Everglades. I watched closely as the stronger and larger sibling recognized the extra help this one needed just to make it back and forth across the marsh and through the mud to survive. When little 'pokey' (which is how I distinguished between the two when watching their family dynamics) would fall behind, 'speedy' would come to the rescue with urgency and encouragement and insist the little one get up and keep moving.
It was an incredibly touching bond between the two siblings and of course the mom and dad.
On this #earthday may peace prevail. As this colt moves forward every moment, I hope to write many more episodes of victories or struggles that ravage our wildlife every day.
In honor of the globe in which we live:
Fight for a clean environment.
Focus on spreading awareness for all living organisms.
Think optimistically about ways to make changes in the future.
Never forget that the extinction of wildlife is a reality.
I hope we all Celebrate Earth Day. Pick up a piece of trash, go vegetarian for the day, plant a tree or flower, turn off extra lights in your home. There are many ways to make an impact. Choose something for yourself and have a wonderful weekend!! - Marc -

The growing demand for shark fins and shark meat helped with modern fishing methods has caused a rapid decline in shark populations around the world. Shark catching countries must act now to conserve and protect these animals. Sharks play a critical role in the ocean environment, where sharks populations are healthy, the marine life is healthy too, but where they have been overfished, the ecosystems fall out of balance.
Mexico's shark industry uses every part of the animal, not just the fin...Whether or not consumers use every part of the shark does not safeguard them against extinction. #pelagiclife #saveoursharks #mexico #consumeresponsable #sharks #tiburon #harshreality #seashepherd #conserve #natgeo #conservationphotography #nocomocazon #cazon #natgeotravel #ciudaddemexico #conservacion #alimentacion

As cheetas, ou guepardos, são os animais mais rápidos no planeta, mas sua velocidade máxima só pode ser mantida por alguns segundos, então ela deve se aproximar o máximo possível de sua presa, sem ser notada. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Cheetahs, are the fastest animals on the planet, but their maximum speed can only be maintained for a few seconds... 🦁🐆🐃🐘🐊🐍🐒

I've been busy prepping for and attending the Greater Everglades Ecosystem Restoration Conference so I've been slacking a bit on my posts lately. Here's the #eagle nest in the central #Everglades taken last week with the chicks looking healthy but somewhat bedraggled by a recent rain shower.

A grey heron takes flight, as the setting sun sets warm light on the marshland. These birds appear very enigmatic but majestic at the same time. •

Happy Earth Day! This image is a coyote crossing a busy hiking path on Stanford's Campus. Since coming to school in California, I have been astounded by the ability of nature to survive in the intermixing regions of urban sprawl and semi-natural landscapes. Coyotes like these frequently interact with the human landscape and have managed to sustain themselves despite ever encroaching urbanization. Even creatures like mountain lions, bobcats, and others live in this foreign landscape, hidden between highways and parks, but present nonetheless. To city dwellers, nature is often an abstract and foreign concept, but it is always there no matter how disconnected it may seem. Nature can be resilient, but we must all do our part to ensure that every species has its chance to survive and share this incredible planet that we all call home. #earthday2017 #earth #california #urbancoyote #urbannature #wildlife #stanford #stanforddish #nature #conservation #conservationphotography

From the mountains all the way down to the oceans, so many different, wonderful creatures call this planet home. I have had the privilege to travel and experience some of what this beautiful planet has to offer. It is up to us to preserve, conserve and protect Earth from those who seek to profit solely from the destruction and overexploitation of our home.
Happy Earth Day everyone!
