Can Gio Mangrove, Vietnam

In November 2015, UNESCO proclaimed July 26 as the International Day for the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystem, thereby underlined the importance of the unique but vulnerable mangrove ecosystems around the world. Mangroves provide substantial benefits, by improving food security, protecting against storms or shoreline erosion, providing habitats of rare wildlife species and sequestering and storing blue carbon important for mitigating climate change.

To this occasion, PROBA-V visits the Can Gio mangrove forest and biosphere reserve in Vietnam, ~40 km southeast of Ho Chi Min city that is visible in grey tones at the top of the image. The myriad of waterways through the mangrove forest (dark red, centre) and agricultural fields (dark tones on the banks) are particularly striking. This is put in contrast to the city’s growth in population, which has nearly doubled to 8.5 million over the last 20 years.

Here's a little throwback for ya... me as a young man, Maximus and Proximo, my young panthers.... aka cougar, puma, catamount, mountain lion. As you can see their habitat they come home to has grass to roll on, trees to climb and scratch with their claws. Habitats are equally as important for animals born in captivity as they are in the wild #everglades #habitats #zoos #wildlifeparks #otterjohn

@timtast1c, a #biologist who volunteers as a #butterfly keeper at @sfbotanicalgarden, has raised a #kaleidoscope of #butterflies in his #backyard. Inspired by the #insect’s delicate, ethereal beauty, Wong works to build butterfly populations as their natural #habitats shrink, threatened by #industrial development. Here on #Instagram, he shares images of their vivid colorings and exquisite features -- all to remind us why butterflies, which pollinate #crops, are essential to our #world.

#sanfranciscozoo how cold to promote a zoo as #educational or as if it is their #choice to be in such #unnatural #habitats! Just cruel #emptythecages

Unfortunately reserved marina habitats are under attack. Let the Department of interior know your concerns!

Saw these signs in many yards while walking around #lewes . Did some research and found this info...love this so much. Link in bio for info on getting your garden certified.

The Certified Wildlife Habitat® program, conducted through a partnership between Delaware Nature Society and the National Wildlife Federation, provides official recognition for properties that meet five criteria necessary for wildlife:  food, water, cover, places for wildlife to raise young, and wildlife-friendly landscaping practices.
