Orphaned Sumatran elephants, rarely make it to adulthood. Help us prevent human - elephant conflict. We have ordered two collars from the United States, and we'll be fitting them on two different herds of elephants. Allowing us to understand the herds movements and helping is with the science. With 6 GPS download locations a day, this will allow our Ranger patrol to be in a place to prevent any human elephant conflicts from happening. But we still need to raise funds to get more elephant patrol units into the field. Help us directly with a contribution to our Forest & Elephant patrols! Link in bio :) right now.

One of the funniest things I have seen about the eclipse today!!! #dinosaurs #eclipse #eclipse2017 #warning #extinction #funny #goodlaugh #trex

بچّه ها پنج شنبه صبح ساعت هشت توی برنامه ی "سرزمین ما" شبکه ی یک گفت و گو دارم. اگر دوست داشتید نگاه کنید. موضوع برنامه "باغ وحش" هست. البته مسلّما با این تیپ نمی رم😉
راستی من خودم سرانه ی تلویزیون دیدنم تو ده سال اخیر کم تر از سالی سه ساعت بوده، ولی جهت اطّلاع فقط گفتم شاید دوست داشتید من و برنامه ی محیط زیستی صدا و سیما رو تماشا کنید.
من که حتماً با دونستن "مخاطب" بودن شما اون جا اِنرژی می گیرم.❤💖

This is one of my favourite objects on display at the Harvard Natural History Museum. It's the skull of Triceratops eurycephalus (specimen MCZ1102) discovered in 1934 in the Lance formation of Wyoming from the late Cretaceous. This was thought to be the holotype of the species but more recently has been reclassified as Triceratops horridus. In fact despite many different species of Triceratops being named on discovery, they've now concluded that they are all probably examples from only two species - T. horridus & T. prosus. I could look at this thing for hours! #triceratops #skull #dinosaurage #dinosaur #cretaceous #dinosaurs #triceratopsskull #threehornedface #fossil #fossils #fossilart #palaeoart #palaeontology #paleontology #paleoart #extinct #extinction #museum #museumquality #harvard #naturualhistorymuseum #harvardnaturalhistorymuseum #science #evolution #horned #boston #massachusetts #cambridge

Feeling bitey. (Nothing unusual!!) Missing these monsters and mentally preparing myself for the hot and humid catastrophe that is my studio!

A second chance! Forest refugees. Critically endangered Sumatran orangutans will be given a second chance in the wild, after their mothers have been killed by poachers or plantation workers.These caretakers at the SOCP quarantine centre in Medan are doing an amazing job helping this little guys on their road to recovery and freedom within the Leuser Ecosystem, the last place on Earth where elephants, tigers, rhino and orangutans still run wild. Please Learn more about this important ecosystem here: https://www.lovetheleuser.org

(ECC comment: Cutting of rainforests, massive storehouses of carbon, to make room for massive oil palm plantations release massive amounts of carbon, a greenhouse gas into the atmosphere.) #saveleuserecosystem #racingextinction #beforetheflood #sumatra #conservation #biodiversity #cutconflictpalmoil #environment #climatejustice #orangutan #elephant #extinction #sustainability #wildlife #plants #climatechange #cutconflictpalmoil #indonesia

Repost from @fashion_animals_book .
Demand for #Koala's skins for use in fashion resulted in populations going from millions to mere thousands at the turn of the 20th century. The fashion industry nearly drove Koalas to #extinction, and completely wiped out the slow, vulnerable animal in many areas. This photo shows a dog atop truck load of 3600 koala skins which were obtained by a party of hunters in the Clermont area in thirty days, and highlights the strange disconnect between the animals we "love" and the animals we wear. In the late 1800s, the London fur industry alone received around 300,000 pelts a year. During the 1920s, the US fur industry sold millions of Koalas' skins. Koalas have never fully recovered from this rapid and major blow. #fashion #fashionhistory #animals

A project @bartholomeusklip is particular passionate about is the #quaggaproject, which has successfully brought back an animal from #extinction and reintroduced it into reserves in its former #southafrican habitat, including #bartholomeusklip #heartwellington #visitsawinelands #visitwellingtonsa #naturalhabitat #reserves #passionfornature

This is the Colobus Monkey🐵
They are nationally threatened in #Kenya 🙈
Are you interested in helping preserve and protect these primates🙏? Volunteer at #colobusconservation

•People have a fear of the unknown. Insects have different senses than us, different amount of limbs and their body structure is very different. It's hard for us to really relate to them and understand them.

Hawaii's islands are home to an impressive array of unique birds. Sadly, many are now endangered & lots have already vanished. The Kauai akialoa, like all the other akialoa species, is now extinct. This diminutive nectar-feeder fell victim to habitat destruction & the silent threat of introduced mosquito-borne diseases. It was last recorded in 1969. This male museum specimen in Honolulu has faded over time, so I've tried to restore the original green back & yellow underbelly to the photo.

Very excited to have the opportunity to hold an art Vernissage. The theme is "Nature Tomorrow" which conveys the message about threatened animals and how our nature is an important part of our planet. The extinction of animals such as the Tiger has remained close to my art ever since I started the campaign "Save the Cat!" during my high school years. Through my art I want people to recognize the beauty of nature and the importance of protecting it. The Vernissage will take place in Rastatt on the 28th of August.

Bees are responsible for pollinating 70% of the crop species that feed 90% of the world. The extinction of bees will create enormous disruptions to the food chain and put immense pressure on sustaining the global human population. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Intensive farming methods such as land clearing, pesticides, and fertilizers are leading to the eradication of crop-pollinating insect species. The most dramatic example of wild bee eradication comes from the apple and pear orchards of south west China. Farmers are forced to individually hand-pollinate every flower on their trees. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Without bees, our plant-based diets will mainly consist of wind-pollinated crops; wheat, barely, corn, and little else. Methods such as planting strips of wildflowers on farms, and leaving patches of natural vegetation such as forests, have been implemented in Europe and North America to boost bee populations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bees have provided free pollination for our crops for millennia. We should return the favour by providing them with a healthy environment they need to survive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
