The endangered Przewalski’s horse, or P-horse for short, is the only truly wild horse left in existence-- all others in the wild are feral. These stocky, muscular horses are considered holy animals in Mongolia and are never ridden, stabled or tamed in their culture. In fact, the Mongolian name for this horse, takhi, means ‘spirit’ or ‘worthy of worship’. Sadly, in the 1960’s this horse was driven to the edge of extinction, mainly due to inbreeding with domesticated horses after most were hunted or captured and sold into the exotic pet trade by foreign merchants. Eventually, these horses became extinct in the wild and only 31 remained alive in captivity. However, thanks to dedicated captive breeding programs, the species’ population has grown to over 1,500 individuals. In Mongolia and China, reintroduction programs have begun, and today more than 50 mature individuals are free-living in the wild. Future reintroduction is in the works for Kazakhstan and Russia.
This horse was photographed at @gladysporterzoo.

The Burmese star tortoise nearly went extinct. Popular with pet traders, the medium-sized tortoise with a distinct pattern on its shell was almost erased from the wild in the early 2000s. With a team of conservationists and government partners, our colleagues in Myanmar have conducted an aggressive captive-breeding program to bring it back. Thanks to that effort, the Burmese star tortoise population has reached over 14,000 individuals. Watch the video at wcs.org.

This unpleasant image is a reminder of the deadly rhino horn trade. It is in desperate need of attention if we are to #SaveTheRhino from extinction.
.
(BBC News) - A shocking image of environmental crime has been declared the top entry in this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year (WPY) competition.
.
Taken by South African Brent Stirton, the picture shows the slumped form of a black rhino in Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve.
Poachers killed the animal at night, with a silencer, and then dehorned it.
Stirton took the photo as part of an investigation into the illegal trade in rhino products.
.
The photographer visited more than 30 such crime scenes in the course of his probe - experiences he said he found depressing.
.
Stirton, who collected his award at a gala dinner at London's Natural History Museum, believes this particular piece of butchery was probably carried out by local people, but working to order.
.
The usual practice is to sell the animal's two horns to a middleman. This individual then smuggles the merchandise out of South Africa, most probably through Mozambique, to China or Vietnam.
.
In those Asian countries rhino horn has a street value higher than gold or cocaine.

It’s #InternationalSawfishDay & we’re highlighting the most critically #endangered fish in the world. We’re partnering with #conservation organizations & #aquariums around the world to #research and learn more about this species in our care and in the ocean in hopes of saving it from #extinction.

A young rusty whip-snake (Chironius scurrulus) spotted at the backyard of a house in the border between Peru and Ecuador. Snakes across Latin America are killed by people in huge quantities due to fear and lack of environmental education. Isolated communities usually believe that most snakes are deadly and create myths around them which leads to more fear and more unnecessary killing. Snakes are pest controllers and the play a key role at leveling the population of different prey across the ecosystems they inhabit. Teaching people about the ecological importance of reptiles is one of the biggest tasks herpetologists have nowadays. The snake in the picture is completely harmless and when confronted it tried to run away before trying to bite.

İstanbul'un son derece ufuk açıcı, en ilginç lezzetleri de en sıradışı konuşmacıları da biraraya getiren konferansı Yedi'nin zamanı geldi. Konuları ve konuklarıyla her zaman hem akla hem de yüreğe seslenen Yedi'nin bu yılki teması 'Extinction'. Yok oluşlara, evrilişlere ait onlarca hikayenin biri de Deniz Alphan'a ait. 'Kaybolan Bir Dil, Kaybolan Bir Mutfak' Alphan'ın yok olup giden Ladino dilini ve İstanbul yahudilerinin yemeklerini anlattığı belgeseli. Ve kendisi, bu Cumartesi sabah kahvaltısıyla başlayıp tüm gün süren, öğle ve akşam yemeklerini de içeren bu son derece 'doyurucu' etkinliğin birbirinden ilginç konuklarından sadece biri.

Overwhelmed by the impending doom of climate change? 😪Yeah same. Trying not to think about it?😅 Yeah. Someone else will fix it? 😒💭Idk man. "Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation."
-cowspiracy🐄🐄💨🚗🚕 Damn, animal foods are more harmful to humans and all species on this planet as a whole than CARS!
Everyday you have a choice, you can be part of the solution, 3 times a day or more. Idk about you but its a hell of a lot easier to quit animal products than it is driving (: It's not just about saving animals, but humans and wild life animals that we have come to marvel at their beauty, all the future humans, your lil' grand babies that will be born into this.👪😷😨😩
🌍🙏think with me🙏🌍 The wild fires🔥, the heat waves💥, the rising sea🌊, habitat destruction🌲🌳😨, wildlife extinction🐼🐯🐒🐧🐘🐬🐝, the earthquakes🌍, the hurricanes🌀, it is happening now...& only going to get worse. We should all strive to do something to contribute to the solution...what will you do? 😍😦😇
Our future lil' humans deserve better than a dying earth, no wild life, and family members dying from dietary illnesses.💚 #climatechange #vegan #sustainability #cowspiracy #change #earth #heal #plantbased #activism #ethics #lifestyle #reality #veganfortheearth #fightclimatechange #motherearth #peace #restore #spirituality #love #help #whygovegan #animals #loveanimals #extinction #solution #collective #food #animalag #cows

Art is supposed to be powerful and this just about eviscerated me. The actual sky from the night the last known female jaguar in north America was killed. I don't have words to express the profundity of this loss. #art #rawemotion #jaguar #lifeanddeath #tensionandterritory #laurenstrohacker #myheart #nature #loss #extinction

A woman found a shark that had allegedly washed up on the beach in Lee Point, Northern Territory Australia.
Yes, these photos are horrific and serve as a reminder that the fin trade is still well and truly alive. However, these are the faces we don’t get to see. This poor shark died the cruelest death. We are so sorry, we will keep fighting.
